We end with a shot of the interior of the Blue Crest which once again features wooden flooring and large windows. When it comes to modular housing the interiors often reflect the modern sensibility of the homes’ exteriors. In other words sometimes less is more. Not to mention modern decor really pops inside of these dwellings:
This cool contemporary home Down Under in Melbourne has been designed to blend in cool natural tones with sophisticated modern design to perfection. Conceptualized and brought to life by designer the residence achieves this by using beautiful shades of wood along with the right blend of stone and glass. The exterior of the house is adorned by vertical wooden tiles that give it a distinct appeal. Step inside and you will see chic and sophisticated interiors that are largely clad in neutral colors.
Next we shine the spotlight on Paradigm a prefab home that made a splash at Greenbuild 2012 in San Francisco California. This series of homes was developed by Bogue Trondowski Architects in conjunction with Method Homes:
Spotted on designboom the project located in a private ski club in Collingwood is a lavish contemporary residence that allows its owners to enjoy the nearby skiing grounds to the hilt while draped in luxury. With large and open interiors clad in lovely wooden flooring and pristine white the idea has been to bring a perfect romantic escape from a hectic life.
This home was cleverly created by Laird Herbert. We love how the exterior of the house combines metal and FSC tongue and groove cedar. FYI–the interior walls of the home are crafted from birch plywood and drywall.
This was achieved by employing along with aesthetic interiors and a fine balance of various building materials to create the desired outcome. The house uses a fine blend of wood and stone to create a semi-minimalist interior that are clad in gentle and sober shades. It has all-white walls that bring out the natural beauty and warmth of wood to perfection while the décor and furnishings have also been kept pristine to further accentuate this effect.
The philosophy of ‘less is more’ seems to be getting popular pretty fast. The number of homes that are adopting and adapting to the trend of minimalism and semi-minimalism is a tribute to this design principle. It is both aesthetically and economically sound strategy to employ and the Hewitt Avenue Home in Toronto Canada seems to have chosen a similar path. Designed by Altius Architecture the home owners wanted a sleek efficient and ergonomic modern home.
