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.
A series of smart bookshelves line the walls of the interior as large glass windows connecting it visually with the wooden deck outside. A loft bedroom and a tufted bay window seat with storage provide additional options which allow the retreat to multitask with ease.
On the outside the metal roof and wooden body of the residence is accentuated by the use of a splash band of black Richlite that keeps away rain and snow. Life at this charming home seems but tranquil and comfortable as the best of both worlds are brought together in an ergonomic fashion.
An important objective of the project was to preserve its historic past even while giving the interior a much needed upgrade. This was done by using wood from the latter alterations to give surfaces a weathered look even as modern kitchen cabinets smart blue alcove doors in the bedroom and other contemporary additions make their presence felt.
That perfect escape comes in different shapes for different folk. If you happen to be someone who loves both nature and snow-clad ski slopes then this is a getaway that you will instantly fall in love with!
Native plant species shape the exterior of this beautiful home and also make a big splash visually indoors. A wide selection of potted plants on the upper level balcony greenery around the deck outside the living area and the ever-present creepers create an atmosphere of serenity.
Pops of color have been introduced throughout the house with yellow blue and orange making an appearance. But the backdrop remains neutral and elegant with white and wood shaping it in various rooms.
Designed by Salmela Architect the house is a perfect blend of the traditional and the contemporary with a lovely barn-inspired form holding breezy modern spaces inside. The exterior draped in wood and metal steals the show instantly even as the three pitched roofs give it a silhouette that you simply cannot miss.
