Designed with a touch of elegance and timeless charm by Nelson-based studio Irving Smith Jack Architects this contemporary home stands between a refreshing pool area and a traditional farmhouse and form a lavish modern interlude.
The structure of the house itself is one of a elevated and cantilevered cube that sits safely on a few pillars. The lovely and flowing use of wood along with elegantly extravagant glass surfaces and floor to ceiling glass windows has meant that there is both a natural and yet fashionable appeal that comes with the home.
The use of floor-to-ceiling glass windows ensures that there is ample ventilation while a green backyard is visually linked with the rest of the home as well. With sleek and well defined lines making up the design smart décor and trendy use of color this elegant home brings together the best of two different worlds with unassuming sophistication.
Designed by Alberto Kalach the interiors match the extravagant exterior inch for inch as they are covered in wood which matches the shade of the stone used outside. Apart from this lovely and flowing combination there is the wide use of glass which pretty much seems like a norm in most modern houses. It is of particular importance as the huge floor-to-ceiling glass windows offer unobstructed views of the vast Pacific.
It is truly amazing the way most modern home owners are now as much concerned about the views that their home offers as they are of the interiors and the décor. That definitely seems to be the growing trend as designers and architect houses are being asked to create structures that specifically take into account the surroundings and ensure that the blend into the natural setting seamlessly while offering unabated view of the natural habitat. The owners of this have in fact waited several years to obtain the right piece of land that will offer them stunning views of Mt. Asama.
