This is a house that is dictated by top-notch acoustic and quality and those who crafted it spent considerable time researching architectural acoustics and the specific solutions that would work in this busy and at times frantic resort town.
Designed by UN Studio and nestled on an unspoiled coastal site in northern the unique contemporary home is surrounded by a wooden area on one side and polder on the other. This provided the architects the perfect opportunity to conjure up and bring to life an exclusive residence that offers captivating view of the scenery without ever seeming far too overwhelming.
Designed by Johnsen Schmaling Architects the dark exterior of the house has a distinct contemporary vibe and yet allows it to disappear into the densely forested backdrop as the day wears on.
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 ocean is literally a stone’s throw away from this ravishing terrace even as the living area below also features a more modest balcony with equally impressive views. The open plan living area with a kitchen and dining space promises the very best in terms of luxury as the homeowners invested $6 million recently to give the interior a world-class upgrade.
The result is something that captivates you instantly with a series of thick parallel concrete walls creating a smart and stylish family home where privacy is coupled with an air of peacefulness. The series of walls grow progressively taller as they move outward with those forming the peripheral keeping out almost all the outside noise.
It is barely a surprise then that eco-conscious and style-savvy homeowners are increasingly turning to additions and extensions to give their old period homes a rejuvenating contemporary appeal.
