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.
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.
Large steel and glass windows open up the new dining area and kitchen toward the backyard and create a seamless indoor-outdoor family zone that is both refreshing and spacious. Cabinets in beautiful blue in the kitchen add color to an otherwise muted setting even as the multitude of textures and cool floor tiles give every room a personality of its own.
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.
And what better reason for a little weekend trip than a stunning retreat offering majestic and unabated views of the Elk Mountains in the distance while engulfing you in a world of luxury! This is precisely what promises as its owners a couple with twin boys find solace rejuvenation and a break from hectic city life in this tranquil abode.
The holiday season might be well behind us now but there are plenty of reasons to celebrate throughout the year as you await the arrival of the next frantic Thanksgiving or Christmas.
