A tall wood cabin is a delightful sight to see in a peaceful setting surrounded by greenery. The polished wood in a light shade feels traditional and familiar bringing the focus to the balcony that is the greatest observation spot of the entire residence. A simplistic cottage has a distinct character that feels very kind and welcoming. The rustic exterior gives it a timeless look brought to life by the striped design and the classic positioning of the windows and the door!
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.
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!
A smart blend of contrasting finishes that include copper stone terrazzo and beeswax plaster create a fun interior where artwork and accessories add bright and vivacious color.
White is the color of choice inside and that barely comes as a surprise in a region where Scandinavian style and aesthetics hold sway. Gentle pastel hues shelving that extends all the way up to the ceiling and space-savvy hidden cabinets complete this relaxing and charming Hanko home.
It is the living room that offers unabated views of the coastal strip while the master bedroom overlooks the beautiful lineup of pine trees on the other side. Then there is the dining area kitchen and terrace section that opens up towards dreamy sunsets and the distant countryside allowing the homeowners to take in the many sights and sounds outside.
A tiny treehouse has the potential to feel a part of the trees it is set amongst especially if they have vibrantly green leaves and the house has a corresponding wooden exterior. A small treehouse high above the ground may not be for the faint-hearted but it is the perfect destination for those with an adventurous spirit that want to get the most out of their temporary residence!
