The interior is a blend of public and private spaces with décor playing second fiddle to the more effervescent and striking backdrop. A modern kitchen in white relaxing bedrooms and spacious play areas for kids complete the smart makeover!
The entrance to the living area is through the fabulous roof garden and the central courtyard that sits 6 feet below ground. As you descend into this secure space street noises and the sound of trains hurrying in the distance slowly starts to disappear.
On the inside décor is simple and elegant with a few mid-century modern icons like the Eames lounger making their presence felt. An accent wooden wall and the kitchen island usher in woodsy warmth even as the backdrop with herringbone pattern tile adds subtle pattern to the setting.
A sensible transformation of an old structure into modern dwelling saves time and resources. It is this adaptive reuse of buildings that has seen the spurt of modern industrial style across the globe.
The lot on which Cest La Vie sits is surrounded by tall trees giving those inside ample privacy while also offering a natural acoustic barrier. This cloak of green allows for the design of an open home where pavilion-style interiors flow into the fabulous courtyard the expansive pool deck and the rejuvenating Jacuzzi outside.
