This inspiration combines the tactile pleasure of traditional rural surfaces with the style of modern contemporary living. It features two volumes, one a main living space on two floors with a fireplace as a focal point, the other a broad horizontal volume contains the garage, some service areas and two rooms. The transition between outside and inside is created by an exterior porch that extends from the gable.
The inspiration’s character is instantly felt from the outside, with a strongly expressive facade designed using a dialog between dark wood and stone. The back of the house is like and airy, as is the inviting double-height entrance. On the upper floor there are two double-height voids that overlook the lower level, interconnecting spaces and the master bedroom. There are two rooms and an open office on the ground level with access to a backyard patio.
