This is a dream log cabin that combines the concepts of traditional cottage architecture with the dynamic of upscale houses. It radiates comfort and grandiosity without seeming over the top due to the simplicity of the wood.
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.
An antique cottage has a strong historic appeal and rocks the shabby almost abandoned look. It’s truly an off-the-grid paradise for those who are happy to trade luxury for nature’s delight. Sometimes the exterior of such a tiny hut almost loses itself amongst the matching trees. The dark and shabby state of the wood makes it an outstanding piece that embodies the concept of nature as the main building element.
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!
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.
Designed by ArchiBlox the natural slope of the lot coupled with a series of gum trees and lush green landscape defined the overall form of the new residence and its cantilevered living form.
The rosy roof of this log cabin goes amazingly with the gentle look of the light wood. The entire setting feels very coherent and serene perhaps due to the rocking chairs and the swing on the cabin’s deck.
