When it comes to relaxing retreats in a remote location that allow you to escape the constant hustle and bustle of city life it is prefabricated homes that come to your rescue. Far more affordable than regular housing options and easier to build prefabs reduce both construction cost and time significantly.
Designed by Jaime Ortiz de Zevallos the home features an interior that is completely hidden from the world outside. Yet the rear part of the house opens up toward the garden and pool area with a cantilevered bedroom section providing shade for the outdoor living space below.
The top level has been altered into a mezzanine level with the private spaces that embrace the Nordic flavor and ergonomics of the living area. A custom wooden staircase with glass railing steals the show in this exquisite Montreal home even as the small outdoor deck promises relaxing evenings throughout the warmer months.
The bedrooms move away from the more minimal modern look and embrace a more traditional ‘chalet’ style as one sees each of the rooms being engulfed in wood. The smart use of windows brings in ample natural light with high gabled ceilings adding to a sense of spaciousness and elegance.
Dubbed the house is spread across four different levels and each level seems like a natural extension of the one below. It is the ground floor with its sweeping living area kitchen and dining area that sets the tone for the private levels above and the basement below.
The idea of an inviting family house and minimal style generally do not go hand-in-hand. It seems like a conflicting design idea where one negates the other. Yet this ingenious family residence in Poland showcases precisely this blend of contrasting ideas thanks to innovative design from mode:lina studio.
A task gleefully taken up by Woodford Architecture and Interiors the 1960’s structure is now a bright cheerful and modern home that embraces its coastal roots in a serene fashion. And it is undoubtedly the fabulous view outside that makes this breezy even more special as one enjoys privileged views of Burgh Island and the quiet village of Bigbury-on-Sea.
