The multiple finishes indoors give each room a cozy rustic vibe that seems to bring along with it a sense of rich heritage and timeless elegance. Built to withstand plenty of activity through the holiday season and beyond this gorgeous cottage offers a tranquil and comfy sanctuary away from the endless rush of city life.
The color scheme of the interior is dominated by gray and white hues that fashion a serene and cheerful backdrop in every room of the house. Splashes of bright color were added to this muted background using décor accessories and vivacious artwork without ever disturbing the polished contemporary style.
Bring an air of freshness and openness the box-like design of the contemporary addition drew inspiration from shipping container homes and contains the new living area four bedrooms and a lovely study.
The front section of the existing home was kept more or less the same with a minor rearrangement of spaces and transformation of the original living area and kitchen into additional bedrooms and guest areas. Striking imaginative and eco-conscious in its own right this is an extension that is all about a smart marriage of form and function.
Crafted using timber and recycled brickwork the extension is both aesthetic and eco-friendly and further gives the home energy-saving attributes thanks to the passive heating and cooling techniques.
Sustainability is the key factor that drives every little aspect of the The Cave with 90 percent of all materials used in the construction of the house being derived from ranches and sandbanks around it. Old metal sheets and hardwood were sourced from an abandoned railway track nearby while earth and stone from the site were cleverly used to create a perfectly insulated yet airy living space.
But one look at the spectacular residence and you will realize that whatever superlatives you use do not really do justice to its sheer ingenuity and grandeur. Nestled amidst the lovely canopy Flagstaff Hill the cantilevered home seems like a luxury retreat that jumped out of a sci-fi movie.
