The Hoke House by architect Jeff Kovel is built by Metcalf Construction, with Lucy Metcalf as the interior designer and landscaper. Anyone who has seen “Twilight” the movie would have been awed and inspired by the Cullen’s Residence.Â We decided that this is a great opportunityÂ to introduce architecture and design from around the world in our Lifestyle column.
The sleek modern contemporary architecture of this 3 storey residence is strategically placed on a natural sloping site.Â The architects have taken advantage of this natural condition and positioned all the living areas to look out into the vast forested greenery. The architects have chosen 2 basic natural materials to clad the exterior of the edifice.
The modern contemporary design interiors with traditional clean cut monochromatic colours blends well with the external architecture. Timber and fair faced concrete treatment to the external elevation of the residence juxtapositions well with the surrounding forested backdrop.The application of timber for theÂ flooring and window frames makesÂ the modern contemporary interior design both elegant and peaceful. The eclectic collection of furniture is neatly placed in this symmetrical living area layout. TheÂ casual styling of this living space makes it a great place for gatherings and conversation. -via-
