MY HOUSE IDEA: Kinsale Cottage by REID architecture PLLC

The residential project designed by REID architecture PLLC embraces sustainability and takes the concept of recycling building materials to another level with the reuse, rehabilitation, and relocation of two older vernacular structures, an early 20th century roadside barbershop and a mid-19th century kitchen building, into a small weekend cottage in tidewater Virginia.

Staying away from the hustle and bustle of the world, getting close to nature, living with the family and occasionally gathering with friends and relatives, constitute a desired lifestyle for those who has achieved a successful career.
The project provides a perfect living space that caters to the demands of those who aspires to live a poetic life. Situated in Hangzhou, China, this model villa brings in elements of mountain, lake and cloud, and showcases a serene, elegant ambience.
Sunshine penetrates the gauze curtain and filter into the living room. The delicate white marble wall that presents a vivid view of mountain and lake, the marble floorings characterized by water wave-like grain, as well as the matte tinted sandalwood panels, together create a modern “landscape painting” in the living room. It’s a tranquil yet dynamic space, where the occupants can either stay alone silently or enjoy time with the family. The French window is large, offering an open view to the changing scenery of the outside courtyard throughout the year.
Six artistic glass screens erect in the space, to separate the living room and dining area. Together, they showcase an enchanting view composed of rolling mountains of different shades, misty clouds and a small boat, thereby adding poetry to the space.
The staircase beside the dining room features a modern Chinese style. In the elegant and intimate living & dining area, the family members can talk and enjoy food together.
