One of the key elements defining the design is the presence of spaces that encourage family activity and constant interaction with nature. A separate television room with movable timber screens in the living area ensures that the kids’ focus is largely kept away from television.
Then there are others who are turning to groundbreaking designs like shipping container homes and versatile prefab metallic structures to cut back both on carbon footprint and costs. Embracing this green wave is the Main Street House by SHED Architecture & Design in.
A magical entrance that is surrounded by smartly placed wooden slats welcomes you to this gorgeous house. Showcasing a beautiful transparent pool that holds large basalt rocks and elegantly placed trees the entranceway sets the tone for the remainder of the house.
The house welcomes you with a walkway that is clad in Balau wood and meanders its way past a serene koi pond as it leads you from the street to the front of the house. The lower level features an open living area with a plush living space an ergonomic dining area and a kitchen clad in Ceasarstone. Tom Dixon pendants and lighting fixtures from Foscarini enliven the space with their bold metallic accents while a sleek staircase in the corner leads to the private quarters tucked away on the top floor.
While the silhouette of Lamble Residence is clean and simple its wooden cladding gives it a sense of exclusivity while reinterpreting classic beach house appeal. The intricate wooden shell also gives those inside ample privacy and offers cool textural contrast. Stone and glass largely dominate the interior of the house with a neutral color palette taking over.
The main kitchen family area dining space and additional bedrooms are located on the lower level of the house while the top level includes the living area a second kitchen and the master bedroom. This means that pretty much every room in the house provides unobstructed views of the waves in the distance.
Reclaimed wood accents are coupled with pristine white walls and metallic pendants to bring together a wide array of textures. A living room that is both comfy and serene offers unabated views of Lake Wisconsin while the stone fireplace becomes the focal point of the room.
