The owners of this beautiful home initially wanted an interior with strong Moroccan flavor but as time went on they decided to move away from the dramatic bright colors and bold patterns in favor of a more rustic look. Soon they turned towards the traditional English style as it reminded the husband of his native country and also offered a lovely balance between the rustic and the modern.
The rooftop terrace looks almost like an unfinished roof and its cool pergola-inspired design offers smart shade during the day and also lets in natural heat and light for the beautiful vegetable and fruit garden. This lovely blend of aesthetics and natural goodness turns the terrace into a serene and refreshing personal haven that has a style of its own!
The first thing that comes to mind when we think of is the picture-perfect holidays and the snowy Alps. Overlooking the town of Weinfelden and offering unabated views of the distant mountains of Switzerland and Austria is this beautiful house clad in wood.
There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms elegantly distributed over two stacked boxes perched on the rocky cliff. The open-plan kitchen and the living area have floor-to-ceiling windows to make sure you don’t miss the beauty of the scenery – the stunning lake and the surrounding mountains. But everything changes when you walk outside on the expansive roof decks and recharge your battery from this terrifically laid-back escape from the pressures of the real world.
While the street façade of the offers ample privacy the rear of the residence opens up to offer captivating views of the surrounding landscape. Designed by K_M Architektur the floating design of the house gives it an inimitable silhouette while the scenic backdrop adds to its visual appeal.
On the inside the luxurious residence brings together wood stone concrete and glass to shape a spectacular retreat where form meets function. The decor is kept to a bare minimum with iconic pieces such as the Eames Elliptical Table and the Womb Chair taking center stage.
While the exterior of the house is draped in wood the interior has a more modern appeal with concrete and glass being used in a balanced fashion. Adjoining the living room on the lower level is a beautiful dining space that is illuminated by the iconic Caboche Chandelier and the Arco-style floor lamp in the living room adds to the elegance of the space. The living area is visually connected with the large deck outdoors while a modern kitchen gaming room and utility space are located on the opposite side of this floor.
