But as you move through the home a brick and glass ‘tunnel’ connects the old existing residence with a standalone modern addition creating a seamless transition between the past and the future! Designed by MODO this unique approach brings much more than mere renewed aesthetics with natural light flooding through the renovated interior.
The idyllic rear yard offers much more than amazing views and a soothing hangout as the refreshing pool expansive deck alfresco dining and barbecue area ensure that the homeowners spend more time outside than indoors. A lavish residence that epitomizes the glitz glamour and grandeur of life in this hip city it is the interior that plays second fiddle to the outdoor living zone.
A double-height living area a contemporary kitchen in white and gray and a casual relaxing living room complete the smart living zone with a neutral color scheme. Devoid of any excesses and cheerful in its ambiance this home Down Under is all about perfect harmony between a modern home and the landscape on which it sits.
You can find everything that one normally comes to expect from Japanese design here as a neutral color scheme cleverly used shoji screens organic finishes and lantern-style lighting fill the space with inviting warmth. But what truly sets this home apart is the ‘Doma’ that wraps itself around the living area creating a wonderfully unique indoor-outdoor interplay.
But that is not the end of surprises at this awesome Belgian home as a sloped green roof that seems like an extension of the garden landscape ensures that the structure completely blends in with its backdrop.
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.
Finding the balance between the right style functionality and smart utilization of space is often the biggest challenge when designing a modern home. Add to this the demands placed by unusually heavy snowfall and you need a structure that can withstand the rough weather while creating a relaxing contemporary living environment. N
