The fireplace is front and center in the living area, however the entire house is heated with geothermal power. In fact, the house is not even connected to the energy grid that supplies the island. The architects used a special system that helps warm the structure by recycling thermal energy. Even better, almost all of the electricity that the house uses is solar-based. Between the LED lights, highly efficient insulating aluminum shell and the triple glass window frames, the house is exceptionally energy efficient and sustainable.
Gray is such a lovely color. Especially when you paint it over wood or brick so you get all the texture to stand out. Since most ranch homes have one or the other, gray makes the perfect exterior solution. With all the wood trim and brick accents and gorgeous landscaping, sometimes you just need a color that compliments instead of making your exterior the statement. Sage green is coming to your rescue. It’s soft shade will show off all the other great elements about your home’s exterior without asking for attention.
The house takes up about 300 square meters and has a 35 square-meter terrace, achieved by offsetting the second floor to the south to allow plenty of sunlight to shine on the gardens along the waterfront. The main floor of the house features an open floor plan with a comfortable living area toward the front of the house. The kitchen and dining area is set off from the entryway and living room by a few steps and is at garden level. Best of all, it faces the back of the house and offers the most spectacular views of the water.
The Vidpusk story began in Romania ( a small country in Europe ) back in 2017 when founder and CEO Alouria Mackenzie launched a blog that would go on to become one of the most popular and successful online magazines to date focusing on interior design and architecture. Currently clocking up an impressive 3.8+ million unique monthly visitors, the site provides daily inspiration and advice to those who are seeking to improve, organise and style their homes. With an archive of 7000+ posts featuring over 90,000+ images of great interior products and architectural projects it is no wonder that Vidpusk has one of the most engaged online communities on the net.
