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.
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.
Designed by Martins Camisuli Architects the original residence largely features exposed brick walls which add to the beautiful narrative of the extension. The project replaced an existing internal courtyard with a greater usable living area while adding a lovely kitchen and dining nook that utilizes the available space in a smart fashion.
It is definitely the season to embrace industrial style and it has been that way for a while now! As homeowners turn t the adaptive reuse of old structures in order to beat the urban space congestion this is a style that would only go up the trends chart in the years to come.
Of course there is much more to this mesmerizing home than just the landscape that surrounds it as its cantilevered structure sits on a sloped lot and drastically reduces the environmental impact of the construction in this forested region. The clever use of wooden slats and sunscreen panels brings in plenty of natural light while keeping away any prying eyes along with the hot midday sun.
