Offering just that but with a hint of originality and contemporary gray panache is the in designed by Steffen Welsch Architects. Inspired by Austrian architect Hermann Czech’s philosophy that sees ‘Architecture as background’ rather than an entity that stands out visually the new family home is all about understated elegance.
A simple clean color scheme relying on white ensures that the interior is as contemporary and understated as possible. Concrete overhangs add to the seemingly pavilion style of the home where traditional boundaries are done away with.
A long 150 foot curtainwall surrounds the house and gives it its distinct façade while large glass walls open the living area towards the view outside. With changing seasons one sees the varying sights and sounds of the landscape become a part of the interior giving it a beautiful and diverse backdrop.
On the inside it is white along with light wooden tones that shape the living area along with the kitchen and dining room that flow into the central courtyard. One the other side of the lovely courtyard sits the bedroom that is connected with the living area through a stone pathway. The presence of the central courtyard adds to the cheerful and light-filled ambiance of the interior with pendants in bright orange making their snazzy presence felt.
The beauty of an off-the-grid cottage lies in the way they appear to have always been a part of the scenery they are set in as if they grew into it organically. We can attribute this to the exceptional rustic exterior that makes the best of old wood and shabby presence.
