This modernized chalet is the perfect blend for its woody backdrop. The towering design merges stone and wood into one utilitarian yet solid. The stone detailing is scaled up to match the linear glass textures that play on the facade.

The stonewalls of the entryway are softened, thanks to the clear glass doors that usher you in. Wood also plays a balancing act here, as it lends style and class.. On one side, the wall curves in a linear nook to bring you to the staircase.

​An open layout.

The joy of open living comes alive in this home, as a rustic bench—lining a picnic table, greets you once you enter the hall. On the other side, large comfortable couches and double-height, black framed windows offer symmetry and aesthetic appeal.

​Warm hues in the kitchen.

Much like the rest of the home, glass walls that highlight the dense greenery around the property , surround the kitchen. The warm wooden tones of the island and the chrome fittings as well as the stone tiled fireplace all come together for a complete look.

​Expansive space for cooking.

The kitchen has an expansive and sweeping look where there is space for everyone and everything. We find even more counter space in the glossy white and wooden niche on one side while the wooden ceiling springs to attention as well.

​Bright touches in the living room.

The living room is replete with bright touches that come in muted shades on the rug, the throw as well as the artwork on one side. The asymmetrical incline of the ceiling at the edge also creates a quirky look.

​Picture windows.
