Set in rare verdant amidst a bustling neighbourhood, this private residence was designed with the concept of “framed views”.
Respecting the original modernist architecture from 1937, a tranquil palette of warm greys, mid-tone browns was used to create a contemporary sanctuary for a small family.
The entrance door is designed with twin glass panels framing the garden view and letting light into the Foyer. The Foyer/Dining/Living areas feature round-cornered ceiling coves, a nod to the retro-architectural language. A working stone-clad fireplace serves as the feature to the Living area; with well-proportioned windows, frames a small garden. Folding doors connect the living room with the patio, another framed view of gardens beyond. A crafted staircase – complete with recessed light and feature handle – leads to the upper floor. Along the staircase, two windows are detailed as if carved into the walls, becoming picture frames of the foliage and mountain view outside.
