The lower level of the home contains the public spaces including a modern kitchen and an elegant dining space while the top floor houses the bedrooms and bathrooms. Minimal but pleasing contemporary but with a hint of midcentury elegance and filled with an air of refinement this is a Chicago townhouse that breaks some of the misconceptions homeowners have when it comes to using calming neutral shades.
The result: the dingy dark interior was transformed into a bright and beautiful setting. As is the norm these days the home has a new rear extension that flows into the backyard as the Nest Architects completely revamped the ambiance of this small family residence.
The smart use of shaded structures allows the homeowners to spend more time outside than indoors even on a sunny day as they take in the majesty of the French Riviera at its absolute best!
Sometimes simplicity simply trumps all else when it comes to design! This beautiful single-family contemporary home in Australia proves precisely this as it turns to the tried and tested ‘cubic form’ to transform a large barren sloping site into the perfect lot for an inviting modern residence.
The lot that the home occupies is situated on the upper hills of Les Issambres Cotes D’Azure and it is the unique topography of the site that determined its final silhouette and orientation. A sloping terrain forced the architects to adopt a step-like design for the luxury villa with the street façade offering complete privacy.
Surrounded by lovely mountain ranges and the this sparkling mountain home is definitely for those who love loads of sunshine and the rugged landscape of Tucson. The design of the home utilizes the mountainous terrain to its advantage as the naturally occurring rock formations become a part of the home’s organic architecture.
But the beautiful private residence in Australia takes a different approach to space maximization as it arranges spaces in a series of internal steps to not just create the impression of a breezy cheerful home but also to make the most of the city views on offer. Designed by Tim Stewart Architects this modern home is all about organizational skill and meticulous planning!
