Having lived in a home with spatial limitations for over a decade and a half the owners of this mountainside residence in wanted a smarter more efficient and refreshing modern interior fit for their urban lifestyle.
Designed by MODO Designs the structure of this pavilion-style retreat is divided into two sections with the front façade holding the public spaces and the more sheltered rear edifice containing the bedrooms and the bathrooms.
A house and a fence can blend together so well they seem to become one entity. The exterior feels synchronized in the most wonderful way capturing the allure of simplicity. A retro house is a total eye candy! Everybody gushes as they pass it and it would seem unfair to completely block it from the onlookers. A white picket fence is a great way to set up a barrier without blocking the view.
This split between the two zones is simple practical and also creates a spacious courtyard that holds a large wooden deck along with the pool. Ample greenery around the house acts as a natural privacy barrier with a resort-inspired ambiance holding sway.
It is the rear extension though that steals the show with its bright and beautiful demeanor that acts as a bridge between classic and contemporary styles. Frameless glazing oak and brick shape the new addition that now contains the kitchen and dining space.

But there comes a time when the basic bones of a house are no longer reusable and an entirely new edifice is the best options.

The combination between elegant modern aesthetics and the traditional silhouette feels both whimsical and organic.
