Natural goodness becomes a part of life at CSF House with the open living space embracing both the green spaces. It is the upper levels that contain the kids’ rooms along with the master bedroom and other private areas.
The best part about the cabin is undoubtedly the way in which it stealthily stilts and leaves a minimal eco footprint even as it offers a mesmerizing window into nature’s ever-lasting beauty. Owners of the cabin wish to ultimately turn it into a cabin that floats on water but even in its current version this woodsy retreat seems just fine to us!
Apart from the lovely views that it offers the mezzanine level of the house is a space-saver with a comfortable master suite on one end and a spacious home office on the other. With the series of sliding glass doors windows and glazed walls welcoming in ample natural light there is never a dull corner here!
There are times when you want a home that allows you to escape from your immediate surroundings – maybe a refreshing green oasis in the heart of an urban jungle. Then there are occasions when the structure plays second fiddle to scenery outside and you just want the landscape to take over.
Designed by Desai Chia Architecture in collaborating with this dramatic contemporary residence instantly grabs your attention with the 20-foot-long cantilevered upper level and a charred wood exterior that dubbed ‘shou sugi ban’. The dark exterior lets the home standout visually even while ensuring that it melts away into darkness after sunset.
Locally sourced wood and stone were used throughout the house and dying ash trees milled from the lot were used in creating custom furniture and cabinets for the home. But the woodsy goodness does not end there as flooring ceiling panels and eye-catching trim work were also crafted using this wood.
