Here is another home that seems to gravitate towards white with wooden surfaces breaking up the sense of monotony. A large walk-in pantry was one of the essential features that the clients demanded and this is cleverly connected with the kitchen along with a simple workstation.
The interior of the home was altered radically eliminating the dull and dreary look that it previously was stuck with while making a turn towards cheerful contemporary allure. White is the color that is used extensively to shape the backdrop while pops of turquoise rustic Spanish decor and smart pendants usher in visual and textural contrast
But it is not just the passion for cycling that defines this stylish home as the homeowners wanted an interior that blended Scandinavian minimalism with a modern industrial style. Combining a polished industrial ambiance with natural materials and a refined color palette the interior has a balanced and soothing vibe
Large sliding glass doors not only connect the interior with the view outside they also tap into the cross-ventilation potential of the home. Passive environmental design along with features such as a photovoltaic system solar hot-water heaters geothermal HVAC and LED lighting ensure that the Lakehouse is as energy-efficient as possible.
By utilizing a lightweight single-ply roof the need for additional support beams was eliminated and the pre-cast concrete floor tiles and kitchen island complement the old façade. The color palette is kept as simple and neutral as possible and sliding glass doors ensure that the extension is always connected with the garden landscape.
