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.
A sculptural wooden staircase links the two levels of the loft and a functional blend of artificial illumination and natural light give the home a merry vibe. The smart use of textures and bold colors drives away any sense of boredom even as the stunning terrace and rooftop garden complete an inimitable interior that seems to have a style of its own!
The architects solved part of this conundrum by creating an that brought a cooling effect to the interior even as a giant curtain was used to block off additional sunlight on really hot days.
You can see a distinct change in ambiance and theme in both of the houses even as common elements like exposed and painted brick walls sliding glass doors and a largely similar silhouette connect the homes. Modern décor industrial-style lighting and a love for the outdoors cap off this nifty project where common features bind diverse interiors.
It is the top two levels that house two small apartments which make the most of the available space on offer. The open plan living area of the apartment on the fourth floor flows into the bedroom with the headboard wall separating the two.
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.
Another striking feature of the residence is the perforated metal screen that filters out harsh sunlight while illuminating both the levels of the home. Custom fixtures such as the loft bed in the kids’ room and the colorful fiberglass bathtub in the bathroom make cleaning and maintenance a lot easier and turn the revamped into a breezy delight!
