Large glass panes and doors opened up the house to the curated new landscape outside and the outdoor lounge now seems like an organic extension of the interior. Wood siding is another major feature that defines the house gives it a distinct façade and also keeps the timeless Eichler appeal intact.
Designed by SeARCH the overall form of Chalet Anzère was inspired by traditional chalet design and construction in this part of Switzerland. Unlike more contemporary and commercial structures with multiple gables the design of this magical modern home is far more ergonomic and suited to the local weather. A garage towards the back of the home offers entry into the fabulous abode with an elevator carved into the mountain connecting its three different levels.
The multi-level house uses windows in an efficient fashion to improve both the smartness of the interior and to give it a more airy open appeal. Large sliding and folding glass doors connect various rooms with the large deck and pool area that becomes the new ‘social zone’ of the private home.
It is easy to comprehend the reason behind most modern cabins in snowy landscapes literally ‘sitting on stilts’. It makes for a stylish sleek and modern structure that combines practicality with amazing views of the beautiful landscape that surrounds it.
Rugs add pattern and more color to the living room and this color palette is continued in the kitchen and dining area as well. With private spaces neatly tucked away and smart lighting illuminating the home beautifully this Brazilian delight charms you in more ways than one!
It is barely a surprise then that the homeowners of this from Mountain View California turned to the best when they wished to revamp their residence. While the basic structure of the house was left largely unaltered major changes were made both on the inside and outdoors to give the aged home a revitalized modern sheen. The result is truly a delight!
A series of picture windows skylights and glass doors bring the outdoors inside while eliminating any scope of a dull or poorly-lit corner. The color scheme relies on the extensive use of white for the backdrop with delightful paintings and décor bringing in a flood of color and pattern.
