The two central pieces of this dramatic home grace the dining space that sits next to the living area with a TIE Fighter-inspired dining table and the bright red Darth Maul double-bladed lightsaber.
A large wooden deck terrace that sits right outside the open living area becomes the heart of this energy-efficient Mexican home where smart corner windows and sliding glass doors create a fabulous indoor-outdoor interplay.
Skylights that usher in a flood of natural light and smart artificial lighting complete an exquisite home where ergonomics and frugality take precedence over outlandish style and aesthetics!
Another facet of the design that lets the classy cabin blend in with the surrounding pine forest is the irrigated green roof. With a dark cedar exterior and a contrasting rough-sewn fir interior this stunning vacation home paints a picture of fascinating contrasts.
It is a delicate balance between openness and privacy that is achieved with these masterfully crafted screens with the raw concrete next to it adding another interesting textural and visual element. On the inside one sees an open plan living area on the lowest level that flows into the timber deck and pool area outside.
Leaving the street façade unaltered the new addition is spread across two different levels and houses the kitchen dining room and home office among other spaces. But it is the use of large walk-on skylights that draws your attention instantly as the top level skylight also serves as a beautiful private terrace.
The dark street façade of the remodeled house stands out visually from the homes that surround it and gives it a distinct identity. Step in further and this idea of exclusivity is reinforced by a living room where the exposed concrete fireplace and the mirror on the mantel combine to create an artistic focal point.
