Black has been cleverly used throughout starting from the pivoting front door to the garage and the relaxing bedrooms – life at this feels both relaxing and energizing at the same time.
Color palette inside the residence is kept largely neutral with white wood and pops of light blue taking over in each room. A carefully crafted space-savvy kitchen and relaxing bedrooms complete this comfortable modern home set amidst a rustic backdrop.
Different ‘concrete blocks’ across three floors form the basic core of this multi-generational family house even as terrazzo brings a touch of vintage Vietnamese charm to this contemporary residence.
As changing colors of fall and the falling leaves shape the landscape around us we all inevitable start thinking about the chilly winter ahead and even the many delights of Holiday Season.
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.
A glass façade is the real show stopper at this modern retreat as it opens up the interior completely to the view outside. You are surrounded by nature completely and it is changing sunlight through the day and the passage of seasons that provide a dynamic colorful and hypnotic backdrop that takes you back into nature’s lap.
