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.
On the outside seems like any other house in the neighborhood with its beautiful brick wall exterior and sweeping wooden deck that offers a relaxing outdoor hangout. It seems like one of those classic homes where tradition trumps modernity.
The lower level contains bedrooms a guest room laundry and additional spaces while it is the second level that houses the main living area kitchen and dining space along with the master suite. It is the step-styled arrangement of the each space that delineates one from the next while minimizing the necessity of walls and partitions.
As is the case with most modern homes set in such panoramic landscapes it is the extensive use of glass windows sliding doors and a smart indoor-outdoor interplay that blur the line between the scenery outside and the comfy living space indoors.
The color scheme of the interior is dominated by gray and white hues that fashion a serene and cheerful backdrop in every room of the house. Splashes of bright color were added to this muted background using décor accessories and vivacious artwork without ever disturbing the polished contemporary style.
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.
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.
