Although there is nothing wrong with wanting an ultra-sleek look from super modern architecture, it can be boring sometimes. We are humans need something to connect with nature and organic lives. Bound in a space with high-end utilities and cutting edge structures may become too dull and scary that it is overwhelmingly stiff. On the other hand, having a too laid back classic space can also be too overwhelming. Can these two touches combine to get the best out of the two?
Sure they can. The beauty that the clash of the two can result in is shown very clearly in architect Sharon Weiser’s work on the renovated villa in a busy Israeli city, Petah Tikva. Weiser did a very great job in making the touch of modernity combine nicely and effortlessly with a touch of classic country style. The firm lines of that of contemporary design are given elements from the traditional English architecture. The end result is an utmost comfort.
Instead of having a “gallery look” brought into their household, the owners of the house opted for the tranquility and calmness a country style house can offer and embrace them with whites and grays. The neutral tones emerging from this trick give out comfort and ambient feel to the entire household. The floor plan is all about openness and space with seating space in the large kitchen and outdoor patio. The owner can host as many guests as they please.
The usage of large sliding glass doors and tones of dark natural wood keep the place serene and has a calming organic appeal. The outdoor patio has a home bar, a barbeque grill, and a Jacuzzi. The villa also has an outdoor dining area and a stone fireplace displaying the villa pre-renovation in the living room. The structure is elegance and simplicity working together successfully well.
