A relaxing master bedroom and bathroom are located on the same level as the living area while it is the lower floor that holds the kids’ bedrooms along with a gorgeous guest bedroom steam room and other private spaces. Combining luxury aesthetics and ergonomics with ease each room in this ski chalet does its best to bring the sights and sounds of the forested landscape outside indoors without ever going overboard with the use of sweeping glass doors and windows.
Part of a gated community the house has a smart entrance with ample parking space and its street façade showcases a glimpse of its exclusive design that combines metal glass wood and concrete. Step inside and one comes across two individual buildings where one is perpendicular to the other creating a private sheltered family zone.
The distinct exterior of the home is achieved using and dark-anodized aluminum allowing the Pleated House to interact with the changing light and shadows that are caused by the forest that engulfs it. Add to it a gorgeous green roof and the connection between the forest and the house is complete!
Designed by Takeru Shoji Architects the lower level of the house contains a fabulous Japanese-style room a spare room that can accommodate guests and a fabulous master bedroom along with a master bath that exudes an air of tranquility.
One can only see a hint of this modernity from the street but as you step inside the ambiance of the house moves completely away from its more traditional brick-clad exterior. White is the color of choice inside with a dash of gray adding refinement to the setting even as a flood of light from the new living area flows all the way to the front section.
