MJ Kenny Architects have created a contemporary home that is a beautiful blend of modern design and eclectic artistry for a family that wanted privacy for individuals but connectivity for meals together and bonding. Spread over 10,000 sq.ft the house was designed on two levels with a single bedroom, dining area and other common areas on the lower level, while the upper level has bedrooms for other members.
The stylish abode also has a glass lift that connects to upper levels to common area which opens out to a large infinity pool in the rear side and greenery beyond. The architects laid special emphasis on the main staircase which connects all sections of the house and acts as a core connector. The exterior facade of the upper section has been designed using concrete in a unique manner to provide privacy to its inhabitants and also protect from the fierce summer sun. Let us explore this beautiful house together from every angle to appreciate its layout and style.
The facade or exterior of this contemporary house gives us a glimpse into the detailed planning that has gone into every aspect of the design and execution process. The side profile is paved with wooden planks and the sloping roof adds to the style element. The outline of this house has been designed in such a way it keeps away harsh sunlight while retaining warmth.
This side view here of the porch and rear garden shows how simple geometric designs can enhance outlines and make a house look unique.
The rear facade of the house opens up to a beautiful vista of hills and greenery on three sides. The open veranda and muted lighting make a cozy sit out for the family to enjoy evenings while watching the sun go down. A monochrome color scheme gives the entire structure a soft mellow look that is hard to copy.
From this perspective we get a clear view of the magnificent kitchen that has been stylishly created to flow into the dining area. The house has a large area dedicated to the kitchen so that it has enough space for everyone to cook or work in the kitchen. The kitchen island merges seamlessly into the cozy eat out for the family. There is another dining area spreading into a living space that can be used for formal meals and parties. White walls and flooring provide a striking background to the raw polished wood furniture that creates an atmosphere of intimacy in the kitchen area. Muted lighting and steel appliances along with the impressive stone wall add warmth to the space.
This frame captures the simple vitality of the living room that impresses without the aid of heavy furniture, lighting arrangements or expensive furnishings. The earthy rug ties in the seating area with minimum effort and the living space surprisingly lacks electronic gadgets that are the mainstay of regular living rooms. With a seemingly endless ceiling, the space pleasantly surprises people that look up to find the ceiling with a cozy reading room hovering above it.
The eclectic staircase linking both levels has been designed with travertine (a form of limestone) and is encased in glass on three sides that makes it appear like a cube floating above water from this angle.
The decor and design of this spa style bathroom can be summed as
warm and earthy. The covered patio with plants gives a relaxed vibe to the entire room dressed in warm golden tones. The artistically designed floating shelf above the luxurious bathtub with clever lighting adds to the glamour of this bathroom.
The infinity pool stretches along the living room and dining area inviting viewers into its cool depths. Just a step away from public areas it is the most interesting part of the house that owners and guests can indulge in during the hot summer months. The deck chairs along its side ensure that everyone gets a fair chance to enjoy the cool waters.
