Cat Mountain Residence contemporary-exterior
 

Cat Mountain Residence

Conceived as a remodel and addition, the final design iteration for this home is uniquely multifaceted. Structural considerations required a more extensive tear down, however the clients wanted the entire remodel design kept intact, essentially recreating much of the existing home. The overall floor plan design centers on maximizing the views, while extensive glazing is carefully placed to frame and enhance them. The residence opens up to the outdoor living and views from multiple spaces and visually connects interior spaces in the inner court. The client, who also specializes in residential interiors, had a vision of ‘transitional’ style for the home, marrying clean and contemporary elements with touches of antique charm. Energy efficient materials along with reclaimed architectural wood details were seamlessly integrated, adding sustainable design elements to this transitional design. The architect and client collaboration strived to achieve modern, clean spaces playfully interjecting rustic elements throughout the home.

Have you tried Lantern & Scroll. I just bought some gas lanterns from them, and I saw some similar ones to these there. I know if they don't have it they can make it. Their prices are awesome and super friendly. Good luck! You can find them on here or Facebook.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Beth Woodson and Kristy Harvey added this to Cast a Spell With Outdoor Lights
We can't think of anything more inviting than the warm flicker of a gorgeous pair of gas lanterns. Natural gas is less expensive to operate, but for some, propane is more readily available, making it a better choice. Many of today's gas fixtures are available with an electric start, so turning your fixtures on and off is as simple as the flip of a switch.

Frontdoor. Angie loves. Conceived as a remodel and addition, the final design iteration for this home is uniquely multifaceted. Structural considerations required a more extensive tear down, however the clients wanted the entire remodel design kept intact, essentially recreating much of the existing home. The overall floor plan design centers on maximizing the views, while extensive glazing is carefully placed to frame and enhance them. The residence opens up to the outdoor living and views from multiple spaces and visually connects interior spaces in the inner court. The client, who also specializes in residential interiors, had a vision of ‘transitional’ style for the home, marrying clean and contemporary elements with touches of antique charm. Energy efficient materials along with reclaimed architectural wood details were seamlessly integrated, adding sustainable design elements to this transitional design. The architect and client collaboration strived to achieve modern, clean spaces playfully interjecting rustic elements throughout the home.
