Solar panels a fish pond and plenty of natural greenery add to the green credentials of the home while the banquette-style dining area flows into the garden outside. Colorful accents warm wooden surfaces accent brick walls and understated decor add to the beauty and brilliance of the home.
As you enter the X11 you notice the wonderful use of contrasting materials that turn the living area into a captivating and visually enchanting space filled with varying textures.

Another feature of the home is the way in which black is used throughout to give the small rooms a sophisticated look. A stylish dining room with a captivating backdrop bedrooms that offer a view of the lovely Grand Canal through their framed windows a walk-in closet a small home office and a modern bathroom follow the color scheme and design template set by the living area. Moving away from the mundane and capturing the spirit of Venice and its rich past to perfection is truly one-of-a-kind!
A sleek staircase leads the way to the top floor that houses the private quarters which follow a similar color scheme and charm with ingenious textural beauty. Apart from the brilliant use of wood steel and concrete white is the color that dominates the overall setting with pops of green and yellow being used sparingly. A lovely backyard becomes an extension of the lower level living zone thanks to the use of sliding glass doors while a beautiful brick exterior stays true to the roots of the house.
Located on a quiet and private 2-acre oceanfront property this cabin-style getaway offers you a secluded haven that combines modern-day luxury with unadulterated natural charm. The landscape around the retreat is filled with stone pathways and curated walkways that allow you to explore the sights and sounds outside even as the cabin itself welcomes you with its unassuming charm.
The idea was to design a new structure that reminded the family of the previous cottage while giving it a stylish modern makeover. The remote location of the lot along with a desire to minimize the environmental impact caused by the construction of a new cottage resulted in a structure which was largely crafted off-site.
The home opens up completely towards the forest in the rear and a large private deck sitting area and mezzanine level welcome you gleefully. Moving away from the traditional design plan of the living area on the lowest level and private quarters on the top floor the takes the opposite approach.
