Dark exterior of the house stands in contrast to the light cheerful and modern interior with the ground floor housing the living kitchen and dining in one wing and a family room study additional bedroom and other utility space in the other.
But that is not the only space that was altered to meet the growing demands of an urban family. The more rigid kitchen of the house with a counterproductive U-shaped kitchen layout was replaced by a new kitchen where a smart worktop and ergonomic island combine modern minimalism with industrial overtones.
This is exactly why Dan Gayfer Design decided to create a smart versatile and modern multi-tasking family room that also serves as a relaxing social for the entire family TV room home office and a whole lot more! Part of the transformation that saw the acquire a more efficient interior the new family room is indeed a space-savvy showstopper!
Designed by Tobias Partners the house was originally built in 1980s and was in urgent need of a fresh modern makeover. Despite the difficult access to the lot and the constraints placed by the existing form of the house the interiors were completely opened up to welcome in gentle ocean breeze and a flood of natural light.
It’s definitely a big installation that stands out between the trees and feels as if it has always been a part of this setting! It’s a Mid-Century Tree House in Clifton that could be yours for a “mere” $549900. In order to feel like a part of nature itself transparent walls all throughout the house are a must! To an outside observer the house almost isn’t visible due to the marvelously clear glass!
Color is used carefully inside this contemporary home with hollow concrete elements large windows and sliding glass doors bringing the outdoors inside. Refined and relaxing this Brazilian residence moves away from the mundane!
A treehouse is closely connected to the nature but that doesn’t mean it can’t carry a strong modern look that blends with the natural elements and creates a harmonious setting that highlights the best of both!
