Located in Kochi Prefecture Japan and conjured up by Container Design it is this distinct feature that protects the home from on gusty days even while ensuring the ambiance inside is left undisturbed.
As is the case with most heritage homes it is the rear addition that comes to the rescue here extending the living area even while leaving the two bedrooms at the front of the house largely untouched.
A cantilevered mezzanine becomes the setting of choice for this casual area while the outdoor courtyard becomes a part of the interior thanks to large glass windows throughout the house. Timber frames and shutters play a pivotal role in shaping both the façade of the home and the ambiance inside even while allowing the homeowners to switch between complete privacy and lovely views.
The small Victorian house was in need of a contemporary upgrade and this came in the form of a breezy rear addition that now contains the new kitchen dining area storage space and bathroom. Relying on a neutral color scheme that is anchored in white and ample natural light the stylish extension flows into the small garden outside.
Yet both these elements are carefully balanced as a cloak of green with transplanted prairie ecosystem on the roof and a wonderful garden adds the eco-sensitive tinge to this family residence.
Outdoor sunken seating innovative kids’ bedrooms and a plunge pool that overlooks a natural ping in the distance are few of the many captivating features at this luxurious Indian home. Complete with comfy modern décor and eco-friendly lighting life at Cest La Vie feels like an absolute breeze!
