Corten steel plates Corian countertops and work surfaces and cedar siding that has been treated to endure the rough coastal winds shape a home that can withstand the fury of the elements and requires little maintenance in the long run.
The idea of an aerial walkway that is flanked by gardens meanders through treetops and offers a lovely private deck at the end of it all does sound like an absolute dream. But bringing this grand dream alive while shaping a stunning contemporary residence are the creative architects from McClean Design.
Renovated to suit the sensibilities of a contemporary urban family by Rick O’Donnell Architect the revamped home does away with the archaic floor plan and makes a turn towards an open plan living area. This not only makes better use of the available space but also ensures that there is better ventilation throughout the residence.
Subtle hints of rustic beauty are incorporated into every room with natural wood and lovely artwork adding both color and texture. The bedroom gains from elegant pops of turquoise and gray while hints of blue and orange enliven the nursery.
The lower levels of the house feature the living areas the kitchen and the dining space while the top floor houses the opulent master bedroom and bath. A smart private garden and clever artificial lighting complete the extensive overhaul.
