Creating a dynamic and cheerful new interior that completely altered the vibe of this 1960’s single level beachside residence in Sydney the creative folk at Look Interior Design managed to balance privacy with unabated ocean views.
A luxurious master bedroom with stunning marble fireplace and a spacious master bathroom next to it defines the top level along with additional private spaces. A private courtyard with multiple entryways and stone stairway connecting it with the master bedroom completes the expansive and exclusive Canadian home built for an avid traveler.
The transformation started with the revamping of the lower level to house an open plan living with a neutral color palette. With the clients wanting a relaxing beachside vibe inside the home white pops of blue and subtle coastal style accessories were carefully chosen to achieve the desired look.
It is the ground floor that houses the open living area and the top level that contains the master suite along with other bedrooms and bathrooms. It is undoubtedly the exterior that steals the show at this flamboyant home with moving wooden panels on the top level and vertical brise soleil covering the ground floor giving the street façade a sense of uniqueness and inviting aura.
The coastal escape sits on a thin strip of land on Broad Cove Marsh Road Cape Breton Island Nova Scotia and it is the landscape that defines its form and the materials used. A metallic frame provides the bones for the house with custom millwork creating a warm and cozy interior that seems to visually extend outside.
Wood plays a major role even in shaping the entrance of the townhouses the staircase on the inside and various ceilings and accent walls in different rooms. Street façade of the house offers complete privacy while the living area with flows effortlessly into the beautiful private yard.
A spacious kitchen with breakfast bar that overlooks the living area becomes the focal point of the new interior that encourages interaction between family members through seamless design. Design of the top level of the residence that combines classic form with modernity and a sense of lightness completes an understated and ingenious makeover which gives a home from early 1900s a new lease of life.
