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.
Fun relaxing cozy and curated the beautiful perfectly captures the spirit of Truckee and the landscape that surrounds it. This lovely ski retreat was designed by Antonio Martins Interior Design as a holiday getaway for a bachelor client and it effortlessly weaves together modern comfort and a distinct rustic style.
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.
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.
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.
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.
In order to reach the entrance residents and visitors cross a bridge that traverses a moat surrounding the residence. Reconstructed on various occasions the present building’s oldest section dates from the baroque architectural period in 1670.
