IF you are familiar with the work of like this amazing renovation of an old mill with stone walls on the Scottish border that we featured awhile ago the mesmerizing transformation of the White House barely surprises you!
Waves and surf become a part of the interior as the airy living room with a kitchen and dining area flows into the balcony outside. A private yard garden adds to this spacious vibe as one finds a cheerful beach-style interior where white is the dominant hue.
Crafted with ingenuity and elegance by Bernardes Arquitetura the stunning vacation home turns the Atlantic into its backyard as the top level infinity edge pool visually becomes one with the waves just a hundred meters away!
It is easy to notice the blend of contemporary and classic throughout the residence as the more modern kitchen cabinets in white floating shelves in the living room and open cabinets in the dining area offer stark contrast when compared to the original brick walls that constitute the backdrop. Comfy furniture with a hint of color adds to the breezy and cheerful vibe of the extension that charms with its efficiency and simplicity.
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.
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.
The TV room is connected with the modern sunroom using custom sliding doors that also hide away the television when not needed. This not only saves space but helps control the level of natural light that enters the TV room and the living area.
