The task of altering this old warehouse and its existing ambiance and interior spatial arrangement fell to Chris Dyson Architects who combined the past and the present of the discarded structure to give it a new lease of life.
Opaque glass walls were used instead of more rigid partitions to give the revamped interior a cheerful breezy vibe and the living space seems to flow into the beautiful deck outside. Three relaxing bedrooms bathrooms a home workspace a cool reading zone and a library next to the staircase complete this tasteful Canadian family home.
A large wooden deck barbecue zone and pool area become an essential part of the interior extending the family zone into small private patio. The captivating use of marble for the kitchen backsplash and island comfy midcentury décor in the living area and a neutral color scheme add to the contemporary panache of this exquisite Aussie home.
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.
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 large windows and sliding doors not only brings in ample ventilation and a flood of natural light but it also visually connects one room with the other in a seamless fashion.
With passive heating and cooling techniques incorporated into its design and top-notch insulation every attempt has been made to keep the carbon footprint of the ranch minimal – an absolute delight for those who have the planet’s best interest at heart!
