This gallery features the Coopers Camp home, a creation by Australian design firm Base Architecture.
In a feat of forward thinking design, this house has been crafted to cascade down its sloping site, maximizing the available space and capturing suburban and mountain views from every room.
The home emphasizes its visual angle, appropriating expansive views from every room. This allows the interior to feel spacious and connected with the landscape, in spite of the limited breadth and significant slope of the land.
The views are granted through a series of innovative window designs, featuring both louvered and sliding glass panels. These allow the visuals to be augmented with fresh mountain air, creating a hybrid indoor/outdoor space in the corner living room.
Rich natural hardwood flooring features prominently, along with light toned wood cabinetry and white countertops. Modern furniture, lighting sources, and plumbing contrast with the traditional materials to striking effect.
This home is a beautiful creation blending modern aesthetics and a connection to natural surroundings.
Front entryway view: we see the sloping drive and steps leading toward a concealed door. Above, the exterior in white and natural wood tones is wrapped in an angular grey roof.
The home cascades down its sloped plot, with rooms on the side possessing individual views toward the valley below.
The angled louvers can be seen on the second floor, directing views toward the valley. Surrounded in light toned wood paneling, the lower level features a stone walkway and front entry steps, with natural wood framed door and black metal gate.
This view of the balcony reveals the layers of glass aiding the expansive views: louvered glass panel windows, sliding panels on the floor to ceiling windows, and all-glass rails surrounding the natural wood deck and pool space.
Closer up, we see the pool and retaining wall wrapping around the home, with sliding glass floor to ceiling windows above.
Next to the pool space, we have the minimalist, neutral toned kitchen. A mixture of white and natural wood toned cabinetry features throughout, with breakfast nook area surrounded by views of the valley beyond.
Lifting the perspective a little, we see the living room wrapped in glass, a few steps down beyond the breakfast nook area. Black leather sofa at left stands before sliding glass windows.
The living room space stands on rich hardwood flooring at a half lower level from the kitchen, with its beige tile flooring. Louvered and sliding glass windows all around afford expansive views and fresh air throughout.
Viewing toward the kitchen from the living room, we see the contrast between rich tones – hardwood flooring, leather sofa, bright orange rug – and the neutral kitchen.
The living room holds an array of fine details: leather wrapped metal frame chairs, glass and chrome coffee table, small gas fireplace with white panel surround, and low slung natural wood media shelving across length of the space.
This corner room features unparalleled views of the surrounding valley and town. The rich tones stand the room apart from a mostly neutral hued home, while sliding and louvered glass windows grant the space a patio-like feel.
The central open kitchen and dining space contains a large dining table in grey with black and metal seating, matching the stools at the island and breakfast nook chairs. Minimalist lighting sources courtesy of leaf-print black cylindrical chandelier over nook and single ‘bar’ style track over island.
Bathroom continues the neutral, white and natural wood theme. Dual vanity features white countertops over natural wood cabinetry, with dark marble backsplash. All-glass shower stands at right, over beige marble flooring.
The second bathroom features this truly unique sliding wood pocket door, cut to match the contours of the countertop at left, dividing bath from vanity space.
Here we see a combination office and living room space, replete with rich natural wood flooring, black leather contemporary sectional, “chest” style coffee table, and natural wood desk at rear.
Stairway features natural wood floating steps, for light and visuals straight through.
Front entrance: sliding black metal frame door with natural wood frame, standing over the stone steps and walkway.
