Every home needs a stunning feature or two to set it apart visually and give it a personality of its own. At times this comes from the architectural design of the residence and its silhouette and on other occasions it is style and décor that do the trick.
Sometimes it’s all about the view and a home has to live up to the scenery that surrounds it! Set on the idyllic coast of England this exquisite modern residence was once an old bungalow that was in need of an urgent and refreshing transformation.
Is a project that demanded all of these qualities as this brown brick cottage from the 1800s was in need of an elegant and urgent modern makeover. It is the creative folks from extrArchitecture who accomplished this as they completely transformed the classic London home on the inside even while keeping the street façade largely intact.
A wooden staircase connects the multiple levels of this smart cabin that is both easy on the eyes and on nature thanks to its minimal footprint. A perfect way to recapture the Holiday Season as you enjoy the last few weeks of winter ahead.
The concrete staircase in the living room acts as an aesthetic and symbolic element with the small kitchen in the corner and the smart lighting fixtures complementing the overall theme and visual aura. Triangles and dodecagons inside the home also point to the sun metaphorically while ushering in geometric style and contrast. When it comes to modern homes in 2016 House of the Sun is truly one of the most unique and impressive works!
The chalet seems more modern than traditional as you step into its living room and a fabulous wood and cement fireplace becomes the focal point of this relaxing setting. Step in further and you have the large dining space and the modern kitchen both of which offer views that are as appealing as those from the living area.
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.
