This modern home is designed to unite elements of landscape and architecture in everyday living. Set on a corner lot, the home wraps around a central pool and garden, opening up views to the garden throughout the house and connecting to terraces on the second floor. The garden and pool act as an oasis in the urban environment, a place of reflection and refuge from the occupant’s busy lives. The colors of water, plants and sky give life to the home and create a personal emotional connection in yellow-green, and blue accent colors throughout. The challenge with the color scheme and modern design was to keep the palette, cohesive and serene – giving individual areas character while maintaining a holistic design. Beginning in the garden, shades of green porcelain tile form the pool deck and backdrop for outdoor living. The wood grain pattern creates a graphic pop art design element, creating a focal point linking interior and exterior spaces. Glass tile selected for the powder bath is aptly named cloud, turned vertically it echo’s the lines of the mirror and window in the room. The challenge with the installation of masonry and finish materials for this home required planning and precession in order for elements to line up but appear effortlessly simple as part of the modern design. Through BIM software and a coordinated design-build process Intexure was able to achieve a beautifully executed home – creating a modern home that feels like home.
