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.
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.
A smaller and lower cottage can feel very secure and intimate a little space within a vast nature to be enjoyed in. It really puts itself in the center of attention without being too extravagant. The Godendart cabin is located Parc National de la Jacques Cartier only 4 hours North of Montréal.
There is something uniquely captivating about the dry desert landscape that makes it a beautiful backdrop for a sleek contemporary home. Set in the arid backdrop of Nevada and just a dozen miles away from the bright lights of Las Vegas is a luxury residential development in the foothills of McCullough Range.
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.
Beyond the passive solar design principles a lovely garden and green landscape around the residence add to its sustainable style. Despite a modest street façade the house opens up towards the rear and brings the outdoors inside.
One of the major features that defined the house was the need for complete accessibility making every part of the home across its two levels wheelchair-friendly. Clear paths and easy access points add to this feature with beautiful lighting and top-notch insulation completing a classy contemporary residence set in an idyllic backdrop.
