It appears as though we are in the season of homes with exclusive facades. It was just a few days back that we stumbled across the beautiful patina-aged copper exterior of a sleek modern residence in Singapore. But if that tinge of metallic hue is not to your taste, then the lovely Hollcroft Residence in Portland brings a different approach to the table with its redwood exteriors. Warm and inviting, the home designed by Giulietti Schouten Architects, draws you in with its inimitable and striking façade.
Step inside and you will notice stylish contemporary interiors that offer a lovely contrast to the bold exteriors. The redwood exterior acts as a natural heat regulator and brings much more than mere form factor to the house. A high ceiling and an open floor plan bring an airy and spacious appeal even as neutral hues merge seamlessly with the warm wooden surfaces. An ergonomic kitchen and a modern dining space are visually connected with the living area and the top floor sports the private quarters.
One of the décor additions that grab your attention instantly is the light fixture above the dining table. Its trendy form reminds us of the 2012 London Olympic Games logo that had equally perplexing twists and turns! The interiors employ gray, white and black to a large extent with pops of color being added sporadically. Integrating the rustic cabin-styled exterior with the lavish modern interiors, the Hollcroft home seems to bring together the best of both worlds!
