The new living area has a more open floor plan with the kitchen turned into the heart of the space and this allows for greater interaction between family members while providing a wonderful ergonomic party zone.
On the outside seems like any other house in the neighborhood with its beautiful brick wall exterior and sweeping wooden deck that offers a relaxing outdoor hangout. It seems like one of those classic homes where tradition trumps modernity.
But the smart renovation went beyond just the rear addition as the interior was completely altered to give the classic home a new lease on life. Despite the new structure in glass steel and timber the front façade of the heritage home was left largely untouched in order to preserve its rich history.
Connecting the interior with the series of gardens slide away windows and large glass doors create a light-filled inviting ambiance where the panoramic view outside takes center stage.
A metal and wood staircase leads to the top level that contains the private spaces which follow the neutral color scheme and recreate the inviting ambiance of the living area below. With time the exterior is expected to weather and age beautifully adding a dynamic and exquisite cloak to this expansive house.
