The bedrooms are exceptionally beautiful as they have been designed in pristine white and neutral shades while pendant lighting and chandeliers accentuate the home’s beauty. The 7000 square foot also features a Koi pond a small waterfall and even a 1500 bottle wine vault for those who love to indulge in some intoxicating delights.
But the most distinctive aspect of the home is the openings that are specifically created to ensure that vegetation pretty grows ‘through’ it unabated. While the cube-like shape of the houses confirms with the current design trend it is the completely transparent and visually appealing ‘glassy’ lower level that steals the show.
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 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.
The eventual design of the home is a beautiful amalgamation of both well-defined lines borrowed from modern design merged with sporadic and stylish use of wood to create a minimalistic and spacious house. Glass and concrete have been used extensively and the shades have been largely kept neutral with white being the predominant color of choice. Wood has been cleverly used to form the frame of the floor-to-ceiling glass windows to provide a sense of balance.
The diagonals serve as a roof system that ungulates like an artificial topography creating skylights in some cases while in others situations rising up double the height of other rooftop peaks. At the base floor the program develops a direct relationship between the interior and exterior through the abundant use of glass-work trellises and sliding panels“. The green or white landscape floods in through large and long windows and the ceilings fold angular on the inside as well creating an extravagant accent throughout the house.
