An open pavilion-style hall with large sliding glass doors brings the outdoors inside with ease even while offering unabated views of the lush green countryside and the waves in the distance.
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.
The kitchen with its smart shelves large island and an industrial-style steel storage rack blends in with the living area while the dining room dazzles with gorgeous lighting and unassuming elegance. A minimal master bedroom kids’ bedrooms and bathrooms complete this unique and intriguing family residence where the fun times never end.
A carefully hidden private entry draped in concrete leads you to the lower-level living area of the house that opens up towards the idyllic view outside. A lush green backyard charming walkways breezy balconies and a large L-shaped pool become a part of the interior and extend the living space beyond the pale white walls.
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.
The real showstopper at this home is its indoor pool with a ceiling featuring a painted faux sky on a plaster finish. An additional LED lighting system adds sparkle to this amazing setting that matches the imposing mountains outside both in terms of elegance and grandeur. The outdoors become a part of each and every room at the Wheeler Residence and this is what makes this enchanting escape so very special.
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.
