Their new and improved house that you see here was designed to withstand the rough weather and the full fury of the elements by Portland-based studio THA Architecture and was built by Cornerstone Contracting. With the couple being fitness enthusiasts who love to spend most of their time enjoying the vast outdoors the new cantilevered structure offers the perfect base from which they can explore the surrounding landscape. The exterior of the home features corrugated fire-resistant steel siding that also adds to the visual appeal of the house’s silhouette.
Large frameless folding doors along with stylish sheer curtains ensure that the entire home is appropriately ventilated at all times. A and a heat regulation mechanisms help to keep the temperatures indoors as moderate as possible throughout the year.
A stunning kitchen in white a smart living room and a spacious dining area make up the lower level of the house while the top floor holds the private spaces. Adding to the aura of the home is the refreshing pool in the backyard along with warm lighting which complements the natural light perfectly.
Contemporary interior design is often about glossy cabinets and sparkling polished surfaces that are complemented by the extensive use of glass. But this relaxed and stylish residence in Victoria Australia goes in a completely different direction with its walls ceiling and floor being draped in wooden goodness.
One of the first things you notice about the penthouse is the presence of a remarkable South East Asian art collection that steals the show at every turn. While the style of the interior remains in line with the typical New York high-rise the extensive use of glass ensures that each space flows into the next.
Even the serene bedroom and the luxurious bath with a freestanding tub offer views that are simply spellbinding. With changing seasons ushering in new hues the large sliding glass doors and windows ensure that the panoramic outdoors become a vibrant canvas for the entire house!
Yet the real focus of this house is the brilliant array of interior lighting which enhances and harmonizes with the view outside. The day starts off with cool yellows and the bright natural mid-day light soon takes over. The tranquil oranges of the sunset takeover as dusk starts to set in and the night time is lit up by purples and blues of the city skyline in the background even as warm ambient illumination sets the mood
