The task of rejuvenating its exterior and giving its interior a stunning new look was taken up by the creative folks at Turett Architects and as always they have accomplished the task in sizzling style! Converting this three-family townhouse into a smart single-family home meant using every inch of available space in a smart and aesthetically pleasing fashion.
Large glass doors separate the living areas from the bedrooms and the large sauna bathroom while stainless steel Art Deco doors from a 1920s theater in Hawaii stand tall in the kitchen. The living area Napoleon III chairs tufted sofas in mohair vintage French leather club chairs and industrial-style lighting create a magical and timeless setting.
But that is not where the wooden wonder ends as the floorboards made from recycled tallow-wood give the home a hint of green goodness and sustainability. Spread across two spacious levels the living areas are housed on the top floor to ensure that the homeowners can enjoy the best possible views throughout the day.
The weekend retreats and cool cottage homes of have an inimitable charm of their own. Draped in wood and stone many of these marvelous delights come with an airy and open ambiance that sees the lines between the interior and the landscape being blurred with elegant charm.
While the focus largely remains on the outdoors the interior matches the elegance of the view with the use of unassuming neutral shades that gracefully play second fiddle to the panoramic views. Black cream and white are the three prominent shades used to fashion a relaxed and serene setting.
