Designed by Kobi Karp the abode would fit into the image of an ‘ideal dream home’ of almost anyone as its majestic interior leads towards a magical backyard that embraces the charm of life next to the ocean in a truly spectacular fashion. Add to this the presence of gently swaying palm trees and tropical greenery and you have a resort-style escape that leaves everyone mesmerized!
Opening up towards the garden the new living area also contains a cutting-edge kitchen in white and a large dining room. An exquisite brick fireplace becomes the focal point of this open trendy family zone while reclaimed wood from old flooring now adorns the walls. With new concrete flooring creating a more contemporary backdrop the breezy extension becomes the heart of the residence.
The traditional image of a ski chalet is being quickly revamped in modern times with designers moving away from the mundane. This beautiful little weekend chalet on the snow-covered slopes of Quebec is draped in dark stained white cedar siding and sits on cedar columns giving it a breezy contemporary appeal. Built for a family with kids the weekend escape was designed by and of Studio robitaille.curtis keeping in mind the landscape on which it sits and the view on offer.
In fact the street façade only gives you a slight glimpse of the actual interior with two pod-like structures popping out of the otherwise green scenery. Then there is the smart waterproof rubber membrane that wraps itself around the exterior of the home to make sure that the moisture does not seep through from the green roof into the living area.
It is the “Earth Studio” that sits next to the entrance garden on the ground level with the “Wind Studio” taking up the rear and opening up towards the backyard. On the top floor it is the “Fire Studio” that holds the social terrace and a gorgeous bedroom along with additional spaces.
Bi-fold doors blur the line between the interior and the garden with skylights bringing in additional ventilation in the hallway and the powder room. Despite the use of contrasting textures and finishes nothing seems out of place inside this Aussie home as custom lighting and a charming landscape cap off the brilliant fusion.
Midcentury décor pieces are combined with modern furniture and accessories to bring together the best of both worlds even as large glass walls ensure that the outdoor deck and garden become a visual extension of the living area.
