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 living area and the kitchen make up the central social zone of the beach house with the family room dining area home office and the master suite also being positioned to make the most of the view on offer. The focus inside this California home is firmly on taking in the panoramic scenery that surrounds it without compromising on comfort or aesthetics.
Large glass doors and windows on the lower level connect the large open plan living area with the landscape outside even as the wooden deck and pool area become an extension of the interior. A lovely bookcase adds color to the cultured living room where décor and accessories are kept to a bare minimum.
The clean white stucco facade and red-tiled saddle roof of this impressive house affords the structure with an enchanting fairytale-like expression. Enjoying an idyllic countryside setting the house appears wondrous charming and welcoming. It can be found on Funen island (Denmark’s third largest island) and is the property of Knud Erik Hansen the third-generation owner and CEO of Carl Hansen & Søn.
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.
