For the wife who is a sculptor a separate workspace that is connected visually with the living area provides the perfect home office. It is this convenient yet precise balance between the work and living areas that truly defines this. When it comes to the color scheme white dominates the interior with décor adding bright pops of color.
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.
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.
Renovation and remodeling projects have a funny way of spilling over from one room to the next and before you know it you end up revamping the entire house! The homeowners of found themselves in a similar situation as their originally planned kitchen remodel ended up giving the entire home a bright new lease on life!
Apart from the framed glass door that swings open to connect the living area and the backyard a large glass window next to a custom wooden bench in the living room completely opens up the interior to the world outside. This allows the brick wall covered with Boston Ivy to become a part of the living space visually giving the Holden Street House a hint of green goodness!
A panoramic terrace allows the residents to take in 360-degree views of the wild outdoors and the sunken design of the home itself lets it seamlessly blend with the scenery. Complete with a wine cellar and outdoor lounge this is truly a masterpiece that is all about reconnecting with nature without being intrusive and leaving an ungainly damaging footprint.
The kitchen alteration was carried out by Christy Allen Designs who also aided the owners in picking the right colors décor lighting options artwork and accessories for the rest of the house. The final result is a comfy contemporary interior that exudes an air of refinement.
