This two-story modern house exudes simplicity and a touch of natural charm. Key features include a ground-floor pool, an upper level seemingly floating in the air, and outdoor walls gracefully cloaked in dark burnt wood vertical cladding, setting it apart as a modest modernist piece.
Modest Modernism: In reverence to mid-century modern aesthetics, our design pays homage to clean lines, understated materials, and an approach that exudes sophistication.
Subtle Levitation: The upper level appears to levitate above the ground, a visual illusion achieved through discreet stone boxes. This architectural idea adds an element of intrigue while preserving the residence’s understated charm.
Burnt Wood Cladding: The exterior walls are adorned with vertical panels of dark burnt wood, infusing the design with warmth, texture, and character.
Ground Floor Pool: Nestled harmoniously within the layout is a ground-floor pool offering a relaxation area in dialogue with the sea. Large glass doors provide seamless indoor-outdoor connectivity, allowing the interiors to bask in natural light.
Practical Open Concept: Inside, our design prioritizes practicality and functionality. An open-concept living arrangement maximizes natural light, creating an atmosphere of spaciousness without extravagance. A neutral color palette and minimalist furnishings provide an inviting and down-to-earth atmosphere.
Sustainability: Sustainability is central to our design ethos. Passive solar design principles, energy-efficient features, and locally sourced materials converge to create an environmentally responsible dwelling. The garden boasts low-maintenance native plants, further exemplifying our commitment to environmental stewardship.
