It is only once you step inside that you notice a subtle change in style. The new extension and the changes to the interior were crafted to blend in with the existing structure as a muted color scheme and cozy wooden surfaces give the revitalized residence a snug relaxing ambiance.
The use of skylights and natural openings usher in plenty of light even as the simple earthen color scheme creates an inviting ambiance. The L-shaped edifice houses a large living area at its heart with the dining room and meeting room on one side and the dorm room and kitchen on the other.
The result: the dingy dark interior was transformed into a bright and beautiful setting. As is the norm these days the home has a new rear extension that flows into the backyard as the Nest Architects completely revamped the ambiance of this small family residence.
Reconfiguring it into three large luxury units meant the addition of a copper clad box at roof level to extend the available living area without actually disturbing the original style and flair of the building. Another fascinating feature is the use of refurbished Crittall factory windows which usher in the industrial vibe of the original edifice.
The biggest problem that plagues old buildings built several decades ago is the poorly planned additions and renovations that they go through with time making them almost untenable as cheerful modern homes.
Renovation and remodeling projects have a funny way of spilling over from one room to the next and before you know it you end up revamping the entire house! The homeowners of found themselves in a similar situation as their originally planned kitchen remodel ended up giving the entire home a bright new lease on life!
A panoramic terrace allows the residents to take in 360-degree views of the wild outdoors and the sunken design of the home itself lets it seamlessly blend with the scenery. Complete with a wine cellar and outdoor lounge this is truly a masterpiece that is all about reconnecting with nature without being intrusive and leaving an ungainly damaging footprint.
