Positioned in an idyllic spot in the heart of nature, this residence fully blends into the atmosphere and makes the most out of what nature has to offer. North Carolina based Platt Architecture have beautifully integrated the creating into the geometry and geography of the website. Like a bridge, the home begins on one bank of the small river, then crosses it with a structure perched on stone pillars and comes down once again on the other bank, producing a extremely original living space. The two extremities of the bridge and the stone pillars root the home to the ground like a giant tree in a secular forest. These two sides go up on two floors and contain the night/private parts of the residence, although the bridge structure is occupied by the day/ communal regions exactly where everybody can take pleasure in the view and the sound of the river. The supplies contribute strongly in making the house one particular with the web site. The structure of the home is produced in wood and painted in the very same colour as the trunks of the surrounding trees, and the pillars are produced of river stones which appear picked from the river bed and piled up to sustain the bridge. The interior follows the very same principle, and the general atmosphere is warm and cozy with wooden floors, exposed wooden roof structure, wooden beams and stone walls. The interior decoration is traditionally lovely. There is a harmonious mix of wooden pieces and upholstered ones, spiced up by excellent wall art and decorative lamps and objects.
The bridge component of the property has large windows on each sides, and the light circulates freely through it, although the river flows freely below it.There are a variety of sitting areas that let for diverse points of view. On 1 side there is a balcony exactly where 1 can sit and appreciate the sounds of nature.
The fireplace is built in a stone clad structure, and it dominates the living area on one particular side. About it the living room looks as cozy as it gets with comfy fabric sofas, armchairs and ottomans.
On the opposite finish of the bridge from the fireplace there is the kitchen, with cabinets created in knotty brown essence wood with granite worktops. Adding to the conventional feel of the interior design, some of the higher cabinets have glass doors to show the tableware in a really decorative manner. Industrial hunting pendant lamps hang from the exposed wooden roof and give light for the kitchen island. The dining area starts the transition towards the living room, with a massive round wooden table surrounded by comfy fabric upholstered chairs.
Stone walls seem right here and there and a lot of emphasis is set on the decoration. Colorful abstract and figurative wall art can be discovered all more than the house, as properly as table lamps with vibrant colored ceramic bases.
The interior woodwork is beautiful and the reddish-brown essence brings in a lot of warmth. Wood is omnipresent, from ceiling to floor, via the wonderful spiral staircase.
