Designed by Juma Architects the home has a wonderful first floor that is defined by its extensive and extravagant use of glass in the form of floor-to ceiling glass windows. The entire floor can be used either as a single flowing space or one can create several rooms using in-built partitions. While the use of the glass allows for lovely views of the sea not too far away the infinity pool simply takes the experience to a whole new level.
The wooden folds that can be opened and closed at your will give the bedrooms in the top floor all the privacy that they need and also allow for ample natural ventilation during daytime. Neutral shades and the use of grays ensure that the interiors are chic and fashionable with décor being kept uncomplicated and elegant. The design of the pool also complements the basic structure beautifully while the ample patio space allows you to kick back and put your feet up after a long day’s work.
This also promises plenty of natural light and freshness brought in by each new dawn and with a grand patio and refreshing pool there are plenty options to kick back and relax after a long day’s work. The high ceiling with a striking design not only gives the interiors a spacious look but also offers the home a regal touch.
The home has a boxed-shaped design and the top level has been intentionally designed in such a way that it is 3 meters cantilevered over the rest of the base and that gives the home its distinctive look. The interiors have been revamped elegantly using wood in a very soft and pleasant shade while the extra space created now offers both better ventilation and also a larger sun deck. Simple and resourceful.
Contemporary homes and modern architecture are indeed all about smooth designs with well defined edges and a touch of minimalism. But the growing pattern among architects and designers seems to be the integration of the exterior with the interior and offering the residents the best possible views that each location can provide.
And the nestled in Stavanger Norway promises refreshing sights and sounds of the fjord it overlooks with floor-to-ceiling glass windows being employed generously in the top level. Brought to life by Oslo-based studio Element Arkitekter AS the home overlooks a beautiful landscape and with the new design that it has acquired one gets the thrilling feeling of living on the edge of a cliff. The house was initially built in 1969 but had plenty of structural flaws and was inconvenient to live in and it was Element who revamped it on a large scale to create the current home.
The house also sports another pool in case you would like a different view and the interiors are mostly clad in subtle neutral shades with the walls following an ‘all-white’ template. Styled with décor and furnishings that also shout out the philosophy of ‘less is more’ this is one gorgeous house that matches the grandeur of the views it offers with the elegance of its interiors.
