The striking two-story modern addition sits at the rear of the house and uses expansive glass windows and doors to connect the interior with the backyard. Designed by Steve Domoney Architecture the sparkling extension is barely visible from the street yet it efficiently expands the living area of the home.
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
One of the important factors that defined the overall look of the house was its placement on a corner block. This meant that the top floor needed to be completely hidden from the street to ensure adequate privacy while the rear opens up towards the sheltered backyard
The interior of the home embraces a similar color palette dominated by white and several shades of gray even as gorgeous wooden surfaces usher in the necessary warmth. The ground floor contains the living areas divided into two zones with one facing the pool and the outdoor dining space while the other is tucked away neatly towards the backyard and serves as a ‘winter hub’.
Some of these panels open up revealing sliding glass doors that act as an interface between the living area and the landscape outside. The design of the interior itself is simple and contains a small living area with a kitchen in the corner. A double bedroom and a bathroom complete the smart home.
Let’s start off with a handsome house by modular housing heavyweight Resolution 4: Architecture. Called the Swingline Home this Hamptons vacation home is made of 7 stacked boxes manufactured by Simplex Industries and features two master suites five bathrooms and many luxurious amenities like a pool and roof deck putting to rest the idea that prefab homes need to be ho-hum.
A list of the best modular homes is simply incomplete without a cool prefab crafted from used shipping containers. Casa Incubo in is arguably one of the best in this regard as it brings together eco-friendly design frugality of resources and spacious interiors in a grand style.
