Overall, the home is a fortress of luxury for water lovers. It sports plenty of relaxation areas that can double as entertaining space when necessary. The rest of the home is a prime modern retreat for those who love the outdoors and a spectacular view.
Before we get into the details of the design, we should first present the context. This is a house that’s deeply integrated into the neighborhood, being raised on an inner lot, hidden behind neighboring structures. That means it has limited street access and, in addition to that, the views don’t really do much for it since they’re mostly obstructed by the other buildings.
Amid all the areas for relaxation are some stunning, highly functional spaces like the kitchen. Also very modern and bright, the kitchen features modern seating, a large central island and all the latest appliances. The minimalist, handle-less design contributes to the sleek style and clean appearance. Floating cabinets also make the space seem more open without the bulk of cabinetry sitting directly on the floor.
To save space and to ensure the required flexibility, the house has wall beds which stay concealed until needed and multifunctional furniture modules which can be used in various different ways, depending on the needs of the inhabitants. The living areas can be opened up to the yard and the full-height windows let in abundant natural light and ventilate the house naturally. At this point you might wonder where the bathroom is. It was integrated into a small annex along with the kitchen, this being the only newly built structure on the site.
