The classic farmhouse style really plays well in secluded locations where the only noise is the one of nature. This lovely wooden cabin stands out in the green meadow and appears very old-fashioned like it’s from a different time. A tiny shack in the middle of the forest is an excellent getaway for anyone who just wants to be surrounded by nature and stay in a cottage that is the epitome of charming rustic decor.
By adding a large floor-to-ceiling glass window in the living area towards the south and the east the kitchen sitting zone and dining space now enjoy unabated view of the hypnotic scenery outside. Even the loft style bedroom gets a long window of its own that allows guests to take in the sights and sounds of Eidsvåg even as they soak in its comfort.
A fold of natural light illuminates the modern kitchen and dining with the outdoors becoming a part of the interior. Space-conscious home workstations and unassuming minimal décor enhance the ‘modernist’ appeal of a house that has shed its classic cloak.
The bunker is not the only upgrade that the Brighton Residence acquired with a new outdoor living area being added next to the living space inside. Extending into the backyard and pool area the new extension houses a portable lounge TV fireplace and even barbecue zone. A timber landing connects the spa and lap pool with the rest of the setting and the entire backyard seems like a world in itself – an ideal retreat for a stylish staycation!
A set of moving panels and a spacious shelf become the focal point of the family room with the panels sliding in and out of place to hide TV storage spaces and other compartments when not in use. A comfy daybed in green next to the window provides even more storage space with a slim work desk next to it becoming the study zone.
An open and cheerful home offers the perfect platform from which you can take in the many sights and sounds play out in the landscape it sits in. It is barely a surprise then that Gottsmann Architects opted for a similar design as they shaped the gorgeous and light-filled that overlooks an adjacent Golf Course and Lake.
This elegant open and modern home designed by Zen Architects relies on passive solar design to cut back on energy consumption and carbon footprint of the structure. Keeping the house warm in winter months and cool during the summer it is the form of the house that ends up being its biggest asset!
