The iconic Redwood Forests of California provide a stunning backdrop to several holiday homes and cabins scattered across its vast expanse. Bringing together this charming wilderness with a sense of timelessness and modern comfort is the that has been redesigned by Framestudio to host a family of six with ease.
The multi-level cabin was originally built by Joseph Esherick in 1968 and in its new avatar it offers a cozy contemplative refuge that still drapes you in comfort and class. This is essentially a home that provides the best of both worlds!
This lovely walkway clad in sliver-gray weathered wooden planks gives the interior a unique appeal with the double height living area and dining space becoming the heart of the social zone.
Then there are others (quickly becoming a majority) who want a home that feels much more inviting has a personality of its own and is draped in natural goodness. For those out there who feel such a house in the urban landscape is an impossibility shows a refreshing and green way forward. Nature and vegetation come firs at this Argentine home designed by Tovo Sarmiento Arquitectos.
The kitchen makes up in storage and style what it lacks in vertical space when compared to the more open living area. It is white and wood that hold sway here with brilliantly used glass frames bringing light into different areas of the house.
In the bedrooms partitions that can be tucked away when not in use help create privacy whenever necessary while pullout beds and bunk beds maximize the available square footage.
It is louvered screens and smart overhangs used around the house that keep away summer heat while allowing winter warmth to enter inside in an unhindered fashion. It is the picturesque scenery outside that puts the final touches on a house that is connected with the landscape at all times.
The idea of a perfect home is different for different folk. Some of us tend to love a home that is polished urbane and feel perfectly at home in the ‘concrete jungle’ out there.
