Modern-Traditional Home Design
Modern-Traditional Home Design – An old farmhouse near Arrowtown, was the starting point for a home that skillfully combines tradition and modernity – is about a couple who knows everything about major projects. In the last 20 years they have built large projects of golf. Belinda and Geoff, owners were insistent on the charm of the walls of original rock mortar and tiles slab patio to remain intact. The clean lines of the new part of his house, built next to the old one, were designed to contrast, while the shape and material are mixed perfectly.
Before you build, we were sitting at a bar in the Hilton Queenstown, says Geoff. “We look around and we counted seven different textures. It worked. That was what we wanted.
Stone, quarry tile, oregon pine, dyed black floor of Australian wood, cedar and sable – Brown outdoor Board – each texture and subtle color gives way softly to the next. A traditional wall in the stone house, with old copper grids, holds its own next to the back wall in black cedar.
The kitchen is located in the heart of the House, between the old and the new. On one side is the old field House stone wall and the road through the cozy living room with its stone and roof of macrocarpa. On the other hand, the kitchen opens in the light of a new living room with high walls.
What is your favorite space? “Depends on the mood or the weather,” says Belinda. “In some hot days the shadow of the old farmhouse is a relief, or could be simply the best place to read a book in front of the fire. But here, “she says, waving his hand to windows from floor to ceiling, living room” you can sit and watch the seasons at Coronet Peak. I love it. “
