The private top floor holds two bedrooms and bathrooms that provide spectacular views of the Pyrenees and the countryside. An unassuming wooden staircase with glass railing divides the home into two identical halves and ushers in a sense of symmetry and curated elegance.
Wood and marble bring textural contrast to different rooms of the house with the master bedroom and bathroom moving away from the rustic theme and embracing a more relaxing and refined modern feel. Designed to bring home the ‘holiday vibe’ life at this dashing residence is all about relaxation and fun.
The design of the house also maximizes natural ventilation and the views of the pond even as smart insulation and radiant heating in the floors creates a comfortable living environment. Crafted to create seamless interaction between man and nature this charming home is a great example of architecture responding to and accommodating the needs of the landscape.
Designed by PLAN & HUMAN PLAN Architects office the contemporary home is spread across three different levels with the lowest floor housing the entrance a spacious hall and a home office along with a large parking space. The second is in line with the large garden and spa outside and seems to interact with the outdoors in a seamless fashion while it holds a family room playroom and additional bedrooms on the inside.
The transformation combines the aesthetics of the Victorian home with contemporary style without compromising on practicality comfort and ergonomics. A transition between the old and the new is still distinct and yet feels seamless with an air of relaxing calm.
A fun collection of toys on display framed artwork from UK street artist Eelus and a street lamppost in the corner of the ‘casual café’-style dining space ensure that this living area is like nothing else you have ever seen before. The bedrooms inside the home also have an aura of their own with blocks of color used to mimic the De Stijl art movement and the works of legendary Dutch painter Piet Mondrian.
