Luxury might seem like something inessential only conducive to pleasure and comfort but the geometry of great design can uplift the spirit just like art does. Colors and shapes have a direct influence on us our decisions and perspectives and we are naturally inclined to admire the beauty around us.
An inimitable thatched roof on top is the distinctive feature of the N House. Apart from the usual replacement of the damaged areas and the restoration of the basement the project also includes the addition of a new kitchen space. Bedrooms and bathrooms were expanded providing the residents of the house with more space. A new social area has been added with glass on three sides allowing for ample natural ventilation and unabated views.
The interiors are kept largely neutral in white and gray with a bright red accent couch in the living space stealing the show. Stylish use of skylights make sure there is appropriate natural light even in the private areas while an expansive deck to the north allows the residents to be at one with the bamboo and Japanese maple backdrop. A beautiful wooden staircase connects the lower level with the top floors and a concrete path above the water surface in the backyard makes for a cool walkway.
A cloak of wooden cladding exudes a warm and inviting charm. The beautiful recessed lighting showcases the sparkling interiors. An open living plan was employed indoors as all the old doors were done away with to create a single flowing space. Largely neutral walls in white gentle wooden tones and ergonomic furniture complete the remainder of the house.
Large floor-to-ceiling glass windows offer a seamless connectivity between the interiors and the green backyard. The kitchen and dining space have been crafted to keep them visually connected with the living area and a large Corian bench top along with bold pendant lights steal the show here. The nature of the home and its unique geometry meant that multiple layers of lighting had to be combined to bring the best of the interiors both in terms of form and functionality.
