Building an unabashedly contemporary home in a neighborhood filled with classic Edwardian homes can be a challenging task indeed. But the creative folks from b. e. architecture took up this challenge and delivered a stunning private residence that combines sleek minimalism with a restrained color palette and textural contrast
The various bedrooms of the house spread across different levels embrace the same with decor and bedding adding pops of purple blue or green. A few furnishings such as the wooden dining table and dark dining table chairs bring a touch of contrast in a home that is otherwise dominated by white and neutral hues. Smart lighting and a flood of natural light further elevate the appeal of this cool home Down Under.
What’s better than a modern home? Why a modular modern home of course! Prefabricated dwellings not only cut construction time in half (or even down to a matter of days) they’re also typically more eco-friendly because they produce less waste. They often ring in at a lower pricepoint as well
The open-plan living area kitchen and dining space are visually connected with the backyard at all times even as a simple neutral color palette gives the interior a contemporary vibe. Ample natural light along with the high ceiling of the living area ensures that the villa has a spacious airy interior
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.
Moving away from the design of traditional cabin retreats and swapping the classic woodsy mountain cabin style for versatility and sustainability the Delta Shelter in Mezama is truly ‘one of a kind’. This gorgeous cabin crafted by Olson Kundig Architects in steel and plywood minimizes wastage of material while giving its owners a low-maintenance sturdy getaway that will serve them for decades to come
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.
