The MCNY House is a contemporary residence that brilliantly combines the rough materials as part of its main design. Where the house is built at is most likely another reason why such design approach is taken.
Situated on an expansive natural landscape, you can see how this MCNY House creates a truly impeccable exterior look, especially with its concrete garden planters. Although they give the exterior an impression of “unfinished” landscape, that makes the main appeal of this contemporary residence.
The rough concrete and stone garden landscape, along with the fresh green lawn, perfectly contrasts the house’s geometric architectural shape that is focused on rectangularity with clean, sharp lines. The contrast, however, looks truly catchy. It is probably also because of the use of concrete to form the exterior too, as seen on the elevated desk, in addition to the generous use of wooden paneling as used for the folding wall.
The wooden folding walls give the MCNY House a sense of openness whenever necessary, thus blurring the border between indoors and outdoors even further. As you can see, the wooden walls also reveal to the other part of the property, which opens the lawn with outdoor swimming pool.
The long terrace line up the perimeter of the building before it continues to the green lawn. The outdoor space forming this MCNY House exterior design is protected by attached shade, which also offers protection for the room inside from rain and sun. And from here, you can also observe how the outdoor lighting helps accentuate the exterior wooden paneling.
Even without having to leave the comfort of the house, this MCNY House can still offer you the refreshing sight and atmosphere by embracing the natural green plants. As you can see from this social area, the small garden is full of lush green plants the floor-to-ceiling transparent glass wall brings into the room to add color.
Meanwhile, the interior of this lounge area inside MCNY House stays true to its modern contemporary flair. Featuring the clean and sharp lines also forming its exterior and architectural design, the interior is also boosted by the choice of wooden paneling cladding the wall. The warm, natural hue is also echoed by the flooring and modern furniture, creating an attractive look even without having to decorate this room excessively. The creamy white ceiling paint color helps accentuating the airy vibe, which is formed effortlessly in this room thanks to its open design. And speaking of the open design, note how the open floor plan also helps create a seamless flow that connects the seating and dining areas.
Meanwhile, in the kitchen of contemporary residence, you may feel like you are being brought to the old times, although the modern contemporary flair is still a prominent touch in this room. As we have mentioned briefly before, the MCNY House also introduces the use of stone element as part of its design, and you can easily spot it on the kitchen wall. Plus, we also love how the choice of craftsman-inspired stools placed alongside the kitchen island can introduce the timeless vibe without looking out of place.
However, our most favorite part is most likely this MCNY House kitchen corner, where the open kitchen station embraces the stone wall while keeping up with the house’s core design language. As we have seen before, the folding wooden wall paneling also installed here can easily open up this space to the outdoor space, making the border between indoors and outdoors vanished.
In the end, this contemporary residence wonderfully proves you that taking the extraordinary approach are never a bad idea even though it is merely for aesthetics purpose. Even so, with MCNY House, you can also see how such elements brought into its design also improve the life inside.
