A home that sits on top of a mountain does bring along with it plenty of advantages and a few design challenges as well. For starters the pros include a great view of the landscape all around and even the distant horizon along with oodles of privacy that no urban residence can offer.
It is only once you step inside that you notice a subtle change in style. The new extension and the changes to the interior were crafted to blend in with the existing structure as a muted color scheme and cozy wooden surfaces give the revitalized residence a snug relaxing ambiance.
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.
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.
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.
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!
