When Dom Arquitectura was brought in to give the home a quick facelift they were asked to do so without actually altering the existing volume drastically. The idea of adding an iron and wicker pergola to extend the living area into the rear garden was the stroke of genius that accomplished this metamorphosis with ease.
Anytime you come across an old house that has been around for decades the burden of poor alterations and unwanted extensions seems like an almost inevitable and unwanted byproduct. And this is precisely why most homeowners opt for modern extensions and renovations that not only get rid of the poorly planned and unnecessary partitions but also give the home a new lease on life.
The living area also contains the kitchen and dining room with two bedrooms four bathrooms and a balcony with infinity pool completing the lavish getaway. But this is a residence that is more about its architectural brilliance than just extravagant space!
Spread across four different levels every single room of the home is connected visually with the central garden and pool area. Designed by Cincopatasalgato the living areas kitchen and dining room showcase an indoor-outdoor interplay thanks to the use of large glass walls.
The focal point of the house is most obviously the pool area and the outdoor lounge that comes with a dedicated kitchen barbeque zone and an Asian-style pergola that keeps the sun away on hot sultry days. The entire space is designed to create a ‘holiday resort’ vibe and the vivacious color of the pool tiles definitely accentuates this appeal.
Features such as the checker board wall paneling next to the stairs that contains cutouts for the wine collection of the homeowners the custom-crafted sliding door next to the stairs with a paint-drip feature hexagonal wall tiles in the bedroom and a gorgeous plant screen add texture pattern and uniqueness to various spaces of the residence. It is such ingenious refined touches that truly transform this Auckland retreat!
Nestled inside the exotic Maderas del Carmen the scenic landscape that surrounds the unique structure is home to rare and endangered species. Preserving this delicate natural environment while creating a cozy interior the creative was crafted using materials such as river rocks pine wood rammed earth and concrete!
