The interior of the house showcases a wonderful balance between glass concrete and wood to ensure that there is ample textural contrast. While the expansive use of wood in light tones gives the home an inviting and cozy vibe extensive floor-to-ceiling glass doors and windows ensure that the living area extends into the long balcony outside.
The house is a stunning example of modern architecture and peaceful island living. It was designed and built to fulfill the wishes of a young Vancouver couple with two children. Nothing is too complicated inside.
To minimize the impact of the building to the site — it’s a hybrid structure made entirely of wood with some steel and very little concrete — the architects also ensured that the house is completely off the grid. Which is why independent sources of heat and electricity were added.
The top floor of the house features the bedrooms and the bathrooms and while the views from the top level are limited the extensive use of wood gives the interior a warm cozy atmosphere. Elegant and functional this Sydney home puts practicality ahead of aesthetics.
The top level houses the private areas which include the bedrooms bathrooms and additional sleeping quarters. The innovative design of the house extends the living space outdoors and gives those inside a sense of openness and a perfect opportunity to enjoy.
An open-floor living area with a smart dining room a contemporary kitchen and an elegant living space are housed on the lower level while the bedrooms and the bathrooms of the home occupy the top floor. With a corner bay-window and a two-story bay-window ushering in ample natural ventilation the chic home has a bright and airy ambiance and a relaxed vibe.
