Located in the beautiful city of Carmel-by-the-Sea California this cozy home was originally a Mid-Century era structure that was in need of a breezy contemporary update. But Studio Schicketanz not only altered the interior of the aging structure but also gave it an entirely new context by turning it into the very first LEED-certified home in the neighborhood.
Hellerup Manor House is home to numerous pieces designed by Wegner’s expert hand including prototypes and samples that he developed jointly with Holger Hansen Knud Erik Hansen’s father.
A new metal roof in dark gray with rain chains gives the exterior an interesting visual with warm ambient lighting turning this into a picture-perfect dwelling. Cozy bedrooms with custom décor in mahogany a home workspace with skylight and a serene large garden complete this re-energized California home.
Cedar and weathering steel shape both the exterior and the interior of the home and offer a wonderful textural alchemy while complementing the air of modernity indoors. Spread across two different levels the house offers a relaxed setting where the landscape becomes a part of the narrative in an organic fashion.
The central garden of the house is its main social area and it’s flanked by the main living zone on one side and a home office and recreational wing on the other. Fold-away doors on both sides turn the living space into a passage between the front yard and the central garden!
