Instead of starting from scratch the architects converted the existing living areas into cozy bedrooms and other private spaces while a brand new wing was added to accommodate a new living room dining area and kitchen. Opening up into the yard this new extension is clad in Australian Hardwood while a metal cladding lends able support. The design is simple efficient and reminds us of prefab metallic homes. Large sliding glass doors connect this entire area with the yard in a seamless manner.
Exceptional customization is shown in the design of the cigar lounge – a highly private space inspired by the opium scene. Completed by a sauna an outdoor barbecue space an outdoor metallic staircase and a panoramic glass elevator Zinc House is the epitome of a private haven.
The entry hall is filled with contemporary decor in cool cream and white as the entire house seems to be drenched in warm inviting and placid neutral tones. Smart elements like the Shoji-style sliding doors and Isamu Noguchi decor further elevate the authentic oriental vibe inside the pool house.
