Life at this Mexican escape is both relaxing and comfortable with modern décor sitting snugly next to warm wooden finishes which become even more prominent thanks to the stunning ceiling. Large contemporary pendants above the dining area put the final touches on the serene space.
Despite its warm and inviting appeal clean lines and modern silhouettes ensure that the exterior of the cabin presents a private and distinctly contemporary appeal. All the drainage and electrical pipes have been carefully concealed while a wall of glass opens up the interior to the lake and the scenery outside. A small kitchen dining and living area occupy the lower level with a mezzanine floor bedroom.
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.
The glass walls are seamless and there are times when you would believe that the boundaries are simply non-existent! On the inside it is a curated blend of farmhouse aesthetics and modern comfort that take over.
Unbelievable as it may sound; this expansive Aussie home does indeed sit exactly between a giant rock on one side of the house and another on the other side! And yet Wolf Architects manages to turn what seems like a crippling handicap into an advantage as they used the rocky terrain to their advantage with a stunning basement that is etched into the formation along with a super-cool six car basement.
