Designed by FujiwaraMuro Architects the house welcomes you with a traditional Japanese sitting area leading to a living space kitchen and dining. The open plan living aims to be as unconstrained as possible and décor is kept to a bare minimum to accentuate the sense of spaciousness.
It is barely surprising news to know that we are increasingly moving away from nature and are stuck in a world dominated by concrete glass cement and stone. The urban landscape has barely any space for nature at its vibrant best.
Maximizing both the living space and the green spaces and creating a flowing synergy between the two this exceptional and nifty easily stands out from the pack. We are also pretty sure that all those plants help in passive heating and cooling of the house while also shaping a healthy lving environment.
But the woodsy goodness does not end there as flooring ceiling panels and eye-catching trim work were also crafted using this wood. Minimal and elegant the house still remains warm and inviting with large sliding glass doors and floor-to-ceiling glass windows bringing the surrounding scenery and Lake Michigan indoors.
Natural goodness becomes a part of life at CSF House with the open living space embracing both the green spaces. It is the upper levels that contain the kids’ rooms along with the master bedroom and other private areas.
Different ‘concrete blocks’ across three floors form the basic core of this multi-generational family house even as terrazzo brings a touch of vintage Vietnamese charm to this contemporary residence.
It is the parlor level of the townhouse with the kitchen dining and living area that has undergone the most transformation with a stylish staircase in wood and steel at its heart. White is the color of choice for the backdrop with a reclaimed wood floor a tiled kitchen backdrop and exposed ceiling beams ushering in plenty of textural contrast.
