With a concrete platform wooden steps and smart shelving there is plenty of textural contrast here even as the landscape outside adds ample greenery. The old block on the lower level houses bedrooms and an additional living area with the top floor also hosting two bedrooms and a bathroom. Embracing an open design that still offers complete privacy this reinvigorated villa gives a chic makeover to a classic home.
More often than not contemporary homes are shaped by the landscape that surrounds them the contours of the lot they sit on and of course local architectural style and weather conditions.
A contemporary fireplace becomes the focal point of the conversation zone with twin leather chairs and a simple coffee table even as large windows bring in a flood of natural light. It is fun accessories throw pillows and eclectic art pieces that bring color and creativity to this exquisite loft where style meets substance.
But it is the eclectic theme used throughout the house the fascinating collection of thrift store finds and antique pieces and the splattering of DIY creations that truly steal the spotlight. And yet one does not feel overwhelmed by too much color or pattern at any instant.
Large glass doors windows and smart design create a pavilion-style living space kitchen and dining area that is blessed with ample natural ventilation. While the lower level contains the public areas the top floor houses additional bedrooms and bathrooms. The L-shaped design of the house also creates a natural private retreat that becomes a part of the living space visually.
