Despite the generous use of cold steely gray and bright white every room in the house has a snug inviting appeal thanks to the abundant use of natural elements. Wood wool and cleverly incorporated natural textures get this accomplished without ever disturbing the color scheme.
These were a few among many other challenges that Greenfield faced while designing the exclusive and eco-friendly home in that is dubbed. Nestled inside the exotic Maderas del Carmen the scenic landscape that surrounds the unique structure is home to rare and endangered species. Preserving this delicate natural environment while creating a cozy interior the creative was crafted using materials such as river rocks pine wood rammed earth and concrete!
The kitchen which underwent a complete makeover now features white cabinets with shaker-style doors open floating wooden shelves and a ceramic tiled backsplash. An inviting dining space in white sits right next to the kitchen even as large windows bring in ample natural light to create a bright breezy ambiance.
The use of large windows and sliding doors not only brings in ample ventilation and a flood of natural light but it also visually connects one room with the other in a seamless fashion.
The biggest problem that plagues old buildings built several decades ago is the poorly planned additions and renovations that they go through with time making them almost untenable as cheerful modern homes.
Modern extensions to classic homes often take inspiration from the existing setting and the idea is to find that delicate balance between the existing and the new with one space flowing into the other.
The presence of this ply clad addition saves space helps in better organization of the rest of the house and also delineates the kids’ playroom from the living area without the use of additional walls.
