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.
Taking the classic colors of the coastal style and revamping them to suit a minimal urban setting is a private residence in Australia that will forever alter the way you view a beach house! This exquisite contemporary home designed by Cambuild & Banham Architects takes advantage of its unique topography and coastal views while ushering in an ambiance that is inspired by top-notch luxury resorts. Sleek sophisticated and serene the fabulous house employs an all-white backdrop allowing pops of color and the view outside the windows to paint the interior in a dynamic and elegant fashion.
Adding to this exclusive list is the dramatic which seems to rope you in with its charming façade in glass render and timber. Two narrow townhouses were chiseled out of a narrow lot by Sketch Building Design and shaped into ergonomic family homes with modern flair.
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’.
A stunning home theater with plush seating in vivacious purple completes this twin level. The first floor contains twin bedrooms while the second story houses the master bedroom and bathroom. A spiral staircase leads to the mezzanine level above containing the home office and also a gorgeous roof terrace.
Extending the living space outside this expansive deck offers unabated views while staying visually connected with the dining space and the kitchen indoors. Housed on the top floor this level also contains the living area.
Adding a contemporary extension to a timeless structure is always a risky proposition as one needs to take both the aesthetic and structural demands into consideration. Architects decided to go for a glazed glass pavilion with a dark steel and aluminum frame so as to make the transition from the stone walls to the contemporary materials as elegant as possible.
