A modern kitchen in neutral shades is enlivened by pops of yellow and cheerful bar stools. The extensive use of wood for both the flooring of the sunken living area the kitchen island and the ceiling gives the home an inviting warmth that complements its open cheerful look.
The main level of the house features a double-height living room with a stone fireplace at its heart. Massive windows elegantly frame the views outside and the adjacent dining room and library offer additional cozy nooks. The entire retreat is designed to encourage maximum interaction between family members and plenty of emphasis is placed on social areas.
Instead of opting for the usual ‘giant glass box’ extension the creative folks from Whiting Architects wanted the latest addition to feel like a revitalized version of the old home that was already in place. Function precedes form inside this monochromatic structure that ensures not an inch of room is wasted with unnecessary corridors and transitional spaces.
The brilliant design of this secluded residence is pretty apparent (even from a distance) as a sturdy concrete lower level is merged with a more inviting and appealing wooden structure on top. This concrete level with arched openings contains the ski-in/ski-out entry sauna ski room laundry and the amazing movie screening area. Inspired by traditional European chalets in the Alps the entire residence embraces a traditional and rustic vibe while blending state-of-the-art facilities with timeless aesthetics.
A semi-minimal living space kitchen and dining area located on the lower level are connected with the lush green backyard in an unabated fashion while the top level with the bedrooms and the bathrooms provides a serene and personal refuge. Elegant decor additions like the sizzling Caboche Chandelier enliven the home and scenic views of the beautiful lake in the distance help complete this tranquil getaway.
The latest 5-story single-family residence conjured up and brought to life by the innovative folks at Turett Collaborative Architects in seems similar when you view it from the street. But step inside and a whole new world awaits your company!
A serene water feature adds to the tranquility of the space and large sliding glass doors lead the way into the double-height dining space. The lower level of the house also features a smart living space and a modern kitchen with a generous serving area.
