The main facade features a wood frame with Cor-ten steel and only displays a single story of the house. Gently sloping on the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains the home was given another level carved in the hillside one that allows expansive southern and western views.
The architects’ main goal was to use as much natural light as possible so they opened skylights in the kitchen and placed windows to the terrace for an atmosphere not only bright but also integrated with vegetation. Moreover white was the main color used which in combination with the high ceilings make the place feel big light and airy. The high ceilings also allowed the architects to include an extra bedroom.
The living room is aptly dotted with vivid paintings and delicate artifacts which make the house look simple yet sophisticated. The state of the art kitchen is fitted with latest equipments. Opposite shades are used in the interior which produces a pleasant mood to its residence. This stylish apartment has been put on sale for an unrevealed price.
