But they were so mesmerized by the angular exterior traditional silhouette and the gorgeous landscape around it the project soon turned into an extensive renovation. The task fell to architect and interior designer of Levy Hamitzer architects who did deliver in style!
Designed by Bennett Frank McCarthy Architects with a style that brings together the rustic cabin architecture and smart elements of modern design the wonderful getaway brings together the best of both worlds. You can enjoy all the amenities promised by an urban lifestyle here even as you take in the panoramic views outside.
One of the hardest things to do is to create a home that conforms to the contemporary style of design and yet has a relaxing and inviting ambiance. Often in a quest for that picture-perfect look homeowners tend to ignore the ‘livability’ factor of a house.
The newly built structure replaced an existing ranch-style house that was originally built in 1948. Parts of the previous home such as a single-story bedroom were kept intact and renovated to blend in with the new facade. An open entry leads to a beautiful walkway that is built above the refreshing pool and connects with the main living area.
With large sliding doors blurring the line between the interior and the beautiful backyard the homeowners could well be tempted to spend more time outside! On the inside an open floor plan houses a spacious living room a lovely dining area with a minimal white table and a posh kitchen in grey.
This three-bedroom house designed with dramatic flair by Fougeron Architecture taps into the wonderful natural surroundings the landscape and of course the mighty Pacific to offer you a visual spectacle that you will never forget!
But the real talking point of the house is the multitude of smart features like the photovoltaic panels green roof system grey-water harvesting and LED lighting which help in giving the residence its core principle of sustainability.
