Designed more as a vacation hub that can house friends and family with ease it is the master bedroom guest bedrooms and bathrooms that take up the major portion of the private section of the home.
Much of the rear structure of the old villa was demolished to create space for a gorgeous new courtyard and a sparkling extension that is distinctly different from the existing home. Yet on the outside the new addition is clad in the same corrugated colorsteel as the old villa to give an image of cohesion.
Another highlight of the home is the office pod on the top level that seems to be draped in wood and contains plenty of storage space. Both its placement and design ensure that disturbance here is minimal even as the greenery outside and the view beyond add to its charm. Efficient and graceful this is a home that has been fashioned to meet the specific needs of its residents to absolute perfection.
Designed by Utz Sanby Architects the unique private house sits on the edge of a rocky cliff that is 100 meters above sea level. Adding to the architectural conundrum is the narrow lot where high neighboring buildings are all too close.
Apart from the brilliant splashes of bold color one also sees a large influence of crisp mid-century design that gives the eclectic interior an organized and curated appeal. Clever organization solutions beautiful lighting and captivating artwork complete this hip NYC dwelling.
