Reuse of materials was an important part of the new house with paneled wood doors doorknobs and hardware from the old interior being reused fully. Pops of Benjamin Moore’s Melon Popsicle fuchsia pastel pinks and green enliven different rooms of the house while curated art work unique collectibles and a gorgeous living room diorama provide playful and exquisite finishing touches on a transformation that leaves you spellbound!
It is the lavish public area which becomes the heart of the house while the more private bedrooms are carefully hidden away. Sliding glass doors an outdoor sunken lounge with roaring fire pit and an infinity pool complete the backyard; an area that is bound to see more traffic as the sun goes down.
Stone wood and polished modern finishes are brought together effortlessly even as brilliant accent lighting puts the final touches on a family home that veers towards the natural. Steeping in gives you the impression of walking into a secluded serene and rejuvenating setting which is removed from urban rush.
Rusted steel panels also make their presence felt as they create a more private upper level even while giving the homeowners ample privacy. It is the basement that contains the garage along with the first level of the music studio and home theater with the ground floor hosting the public and guest spaces. An open living area with a stunning brass fireplace becomes the focal point here.
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.
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.
