As is the norm these days it is once again large sliding glass doors and a double-height wall of windows above that open up the otherwise ‘closed home’ towards the small private garden outside.
The lower level also contains the master bedroom closet and bathroom while the top level houses additional private spaces an amazing playroom with a custom climbing wall a nursery and a game room that was previously the bell tower!
Apart from the framed glass door that swings open to connect the living area and the backyard a large glass window next to a custom wooden bench in the living room completely opens up the interior to the world outside. This allows the brick wall covered with Boston Ivy to become a part of the living space visually giving the Holden Street House a hint of green goodness!
Wanting to give this lovely residence a new look along with a smart extension he turned to the creative folks at Techne Architecture who completely transformed its ambiance. The new rear addition of the is all about color originality and functionality rolled into one!
The pavilion-style design of the living area gives the interior a breezy and cheerful appeal and creates flowing social zones and party areas that bring together friends and family. It is the lower levels that contain the living space kitchen and dining room while the upper zones house the bedrooms and private areas.
A panoramic terrace allows the residents to take in 360-degree views of the wild outdoors and the sunken design of the home itself lets it seamlessly blend with the scenery. Complete with a wine cellar and outdoor lounge this is truly a masterpiece that is all about reconnecting with nature without being intrusive and leaving an ungainly damaging footprint.
Along with various shades of blue it is the presence of gray in the living room and the dining area that gives the home its distinctly contemporary flavor and helps it move away from the typical beach house ambiance.
