Indoor plants flower vases and beautiful artwork also do their part in giving the interior a distinct personality that removes any boredom. A wood-burning fireplace with a gallery-style display above it is the focal point of the living area around which the rest of the room evolves organically.
An additional feature at this elegant home is the wonderful presence of clerestory windows which bring in a flood of natural light and create a cheerful atmosphere. Materials such as native cut stone copper and western red cedar succeed in giving the beautiful residence a timeless appeal despite its more modern silhouette.
Designed by Neumann Mendro Andrulaitis Architects this gorgeous dwelling seems more like an inviting vacation home that is crafted for rest rejuvenation and a celebration of nature! With distant mountains and endless greenery offering a captivating view this home offers much more than meets the eye.
The lower level of the house contains the open living area kitchen and dining space that overlook the dramatic views on offer and welcome the outdoors inside. The double-height living space with large glass windows wooden slats on the outside and a cozy fireplace at its heart ends up being the hip and happening social zone here!
The new living area has a more open floor plan with the kitchen turned into the heart of the space and this allows for greater interaction between family members while providing a wonderful ergonomic party zone.
The use of skylights and natural openings usher in plenty of light even as the simple earthen color scheme creates an inviting ambiance. The L-shaped edifice houses a large living area at its heart with the dining room and meeting room on one side and the dorm room and kitchen on the other.
The task of altering this old warehouse and its existing ambiance and interior spatial arrangement fell to Chris Dyson Architects who combined the past and the present of the discarded structure to give it a new lease of life.
