The entire residence consists of four distinct suites with each one capable of serving as an individual home on its own. Light hues dominate the interior with some of the walls being replastered and painted white while the wooden flooring ensures that there is a linking visual element from one room to the next.
While its aesthetics are unpretentious the fabulous retreat offers the very best in terms of modern facilities and a state-of-the-art kitchen allows you to enjoy the tasty delights of the region. Featuring 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms the villa can host 8 guests at a time and each of the bedrooms comes with its own private balcony and terrace.
While the architecture was dubbed ‘refreshing and revolutionary’ in the ’60s when people flocked toward cookie-cutter design Risom himself feels that it was simply inspired by a rustic nature-centric lifestyle. The interior is airy with a wonderful collection of the vintage decor that the family treasures and the cabin recently acquired a new glass wall that replaced the old and worn out feature.
In fact if you take away the façade and the sweeping arches you would never imagine that this was once a church. Yet it is these features that give the home its unmistakable charm. Wood marble and limestone are used extensively indoors as a warm color scheme balances the airy appeal of sweeping tall spaces. Brilliant lighting a refreshing pool and an on outdoor lounge cap off this amazing transformation.
We have often talked about how the topography of a site and its unique features are becoming an integral part of contemporary homes and this audacious house located within an abandoned quarry is another amazing case in point! Located on the edge of Wales this spectacular home was designed by Hyde + Hyde Architects to meet the needs of a photographer.
