Designed by Neumann Mendro Andrulaitis Architects the beautiful home has a refreshing gray exterior that complements the natural redwood deck outdoors perfectly. The deck and front porch become an integral part of the narrative of the house and extend the living space outdoors in a seamless fashion.
Glass walls windows and a new extension that contains the rejuvenating bathroom are crafted to bring in ample ventilation and connect the living zone and family area with the lush green landscape outdoors. The courtyard plays a pivotal role in shaping the overall ambiance of the villa as the outdoor dining room/hangout seems like a natural extension of the classy kitchen with pass-through windows.
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.
But it is not about keeping the carbon footprint down alone as plush décor warm wooden surfaces and a lovely indoor-outdoor interplay give a pleasant inviting ambiance. A stylish modern home that aims to combine a dash of minimalism with a cozy inviting ambiance this gorgeous residence in Bavaria was designed by Despang Schlüpmann Architekten.
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!
This clever balance of elements and sophistication continues indoors as well as a neutral color scheme dominated by white and gray shapes a serene yet refined backdrop. The living area kitchen and dining space sit on the lower level of the home while the top floor contains the private quarters.
The street façade of the large private residence still retains its original look and it is only on the inside that one uncovers a more contemporary backdrop. The lovely use of windows skylights and of course recessed and pendant lighting add to the glitter and warmth of the family house that seems like a relaxing holiday retreat.
