Despite its charismatic use of matte orange and varying shades of blue the living area feels exquisite and visually balanced. Contemporary décor such as the plush couch in gray sculptural coffee tables and colorful accessories give the 900-square-meter residence a fabulous family zone.
This is precisely what the lovely nestled in offers as the ingenious minds from 3C+t Capolei Cavalli a.a. turned a seemingly boring private home into a stylish and sophisticated contemporary hub. Yet the original charm of the residence is left intact and cleverly interwoven into its more modern ambiance.
Even the kitchen workstation and island reflect this sense of minimalism as they shun away any excess and blend into the background seamlessly. Shelves and cabinets seem to melt away into the backdrop even as the fabulous pendant lights above the dining table steal the spotlight!
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.
Large sliding glass doors in the rear usher in a touch of modernity to the edifice even as the bright pops of red steal the spotlight. A combination of three different cubic volumes the lower levels comprise the living areas while the top floor contains the bedrooms and bathrooms along with workspaces.
