A thin wrap-around porch welcomes you at the house and as you step in the main living area that sits above ground charms with its fabulous blend of modern finishes and iconic midcentury modern décor.
Sunlight and an undisturbed flow between the different rooms of the house was one of the main factors that defined the new interior. With bedrooms on the top level completely sheltered from the active life on lower level the house combines two contrasting aspects with great balance and fluidity.
Some of the existing constraints that defined the new home included a 7.5 metre wide east-west block overshadowing and poor ventilation. Many of these problems were solved by using a rear extension that contains the open plan living dining and kitchen.
Passive heating and cooling were used to create a more thermally stable interior that did not rely on artificial heating and cooling systems while a flood of natural light cuts back the necessity of artificial lighting during daytime. A new mezzanine level with skylights brings additional ventilation even as an efficient and space-savvy workspace sits snugly below.
The series of two-and-four-bedroom villas designed by Omar Gandhi Architect are draped in wood with large glass windows and sliding doors perfectly framing the mesmerizing scenery outside. It truly is a world in itself!
Complementing the already pristine white interior to perfection and blending into the backdrop are large Moooi Non-Random pendant lights along with the modern stairway. It is drapes and the large wooden dining table that bring an ounce of contrast to an otherwise monochromatic living area.
