Brought to life by Kim Alexander Builders the breezy home is spread across and comes with a gorgeous living area kitchen dining space and a cozy bedroom. The cantilevered structure of the home offers wonderful views of the landscape that surround the lot even as the large porches extend the living area outdoors. Plenty of greenery around the dwelling gives it the appeal of a relaxing holiday home and large glass windows and doors aid in blurring the line between the interior and the garden outside.
Designed by architect Flavio Castro Planalto Paulista is a residence in São Paulo Brazil whose structure is arranged across two perpendicular volumes where the top is projecting over the bottom. Bold and brash the home strikes an elegant and handsome profile.
Located in Austin the was originally built in the 1970s with a ramp-like entryway that stretched 25 feet down from the street level to the living area below. When time came to revamp and redesign this old dreary structure into a cool contemporary residence the architects used a fabulous rooftop garden as the entrance to the house which sits elegantly at the street level. This new entrance offers ample privacy while giving the home sweeping views of Lake Austin from the newly built 160’-long cantilevered deck.
Even though the house adopts a distinct loft-style look modern elements and warm lighting help create a softer more inviting living space that is not a bit too edgy. With wonderful views of the city skyline from the top level and custom decor and accessories the smart conversion creates a clever balance between the past and the future!
The Russet Residence in West Vancouver British Columbia was designed by Canadian studio Splyce Design. Nestled into the hillside a meticulous dining space juts out fifteen feet framing both the forest canopy and ocean beyond.
