Set on 1 acre of garden lot greenery all around the home adds to the visual appeal of the new extension and the large pool and modern deck borrow from the neutral color scheme of the house.
Originally owned by designer-builder Kipp Stewart the cabin has also hosted the likes of Phillip Johnson and David Whitney in the past. Its latest avatar was crafted by Studio Schicketanz by giving it a breezy overhaul with a new kitchen and bathroom as well as a smart refurbishment.
It is a careful balance between nostalgia and the present as the woodsy cabin look is never lost throughout the ski retreat even as practicality and contemporary décor additions add playful elegance and a sense of refinement. The central living zone features a floor-to-ceiling cold-rolled steel fireplace that becomes the focal point of the area.
Even though the color palette veers away from using any bright hues and largely employs white pleasant wooden elements in the dining room kitchen and at the entrance provide all the textural and visual contrast necessary. This also creates a bridge between the existing home and the modern extension aesthetically and allows for a blend of contrasting eras.
The interior is a beautiful blend of iconic midcentury décor pieces ingenious lighting fixtures the personal art collection of the cabin’s new owner and of course plush contemporary furniture that gives it a comfy vibe.
