Bringing together two contrasting worlds and a window into both majestic mountains and the bustling cityscape the relaxing on the outskirts of is truly exceptional. Nestled on a sloped site the design of the home by I/O Architects ensures that most of its open outdoor space is hidden from the street view even as the hidden second level beneath the ground level offers additional privacy. Much of the house has been designed to honor this delicate balance between smart views and sufficient privacy as wood glass and dark metal shape the residence’s inimitable exterior.
To further improve ventilation without sacrificing space the old light shaft was replaced by a cool walkable glass slab on the second level. The attic-level bedrooms enjoy a flood of natural light thanks to the presence of six roof windows even as the original timber structure here was preserved and restored. Repairs to the roof were carried out to improve the insulation of the house and avoid any future leaks while a simple color palette and Scandinavian-style décor give the home an inviting and polished appeal.
A new basement level was added and the existing roof was extended creating two additional levels in the limited space available. The light-filled basement that extends into the private rear yard contains the new open plan living area along with the kitchen and dining room.
A cubic structure with industrial panache holds within it a smart modern interior that imitates the style and sensibility of an old and upgraded warehouse to perfection. An open plan living area with a sunken living room promotes interaction between family members while reclaimed wood adds warmth and brings a sense of old-world elegance.
