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.
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.
Since the home sits on a corner lot this clever blend of privacy and openness was an absolute must even as the rooftop garden and a series of skylights bring a sense of freshness and cheerful warmth to the modern interior.
Oversized pendant lights and ample natural ventilation elevate the ambiance of the home even as furniture ushers in some much needed color. With bedrooms and bathrooms also embracing this minimal-ergonomic look this is a home where simplicity and practicality trump aesthetics.
A neutral color palette coupled with French honey-colored limestone shapes the new light-filled living area kitchen and dining space. It is additions like the Tom Dixon pendants in black along with the ornate gold-framed mirrors and glittering accessories that give the London residence a fresh yet timeless aura.
Wooden slats and sliding glass doors allow the homeowners to shift between privacy and unabated views even as the outdoor living zone becomes an important part of the ‘lifestyle at Casa TM’. On the inside the color palette is predominantly neutral with bright artwork in blue bringing a hint of beachy charm!
It is the lower level that contains the guest rooms with the second floor housing the main living area kitchen and dining area and the top level holding the master suite along with other bedrooms and bathrooms. With mesmerizing views of the surrounding landscape a minimal design style that puts practicality ahead of flowery aesthetics and a hint of Scandinavian simplicity this beautiful inventive and yet classic chalet stands out from those that surround it in Anzère.
