The white picket fence immediately pops into our head when we think of “classy domestic lifestyle.” It’s such a traditional feature that represents the good family life either in the suburbs or the countryside.
It is the ingenious convex curve of the roof along with the clerestory windows that instantly grab your attention as you enter the new rear extension that opens up towards the garden and the extended wooden deck.
The unique design of the roof ensures plenty of natural ventilation and creates a cooling natural breeze during hot days. With the remainder of the house being carefully shielded from harsh weather conditions it is the living area where one feels most connected with the scenery.
Transition between each of these spaces and the outdoor deck is seamless and fluid allowing the homeowners to enjoy an uninhibited and cheerful living environment. Cantilevered verandahs offer ample shade and keep out direct sunlight while vivacious dining table chairs and furniture bring color to the interior.
Even though concrete and wood are extensively used throughout the house it is a neutral color scheme coupled with curated décor and high-end art pieces that give the residence a sophisticated contemporary aura. This continues in the sleek kitchen and the inviting dining space where color is kept to a bare minimum.
Set in an idyllic landscape filled with majestic mountains and a lush green landscape that comes alive each summer in Merishausen brings modernity to a relaxing rural setting. Designed by Dost this contemporary residence in gray sits on a sloped lot (not a surprise) and overlooks the village below.
Contemporary homes are increasingly combining the idea of a lovely vacation and a relaxing ambiance with a functional modern home that does it all. Instead of flying several hundred miles during each holiday season or frantically trying to beat traffic and congestion a staycation makes things a lot simpler far more economic and also helps in bringing families together.
