Sometimes simplicity simply trumps all else when it comes to design! This beautiful single-family contemporary home in Australia proves precisely this as it turns to the tried and tested ‘cubic form’ to transform a large barren sloping site into the perfect lot for an inviting modern residence.
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.
Modern decor in neutral hues an imposing fireplace and smart lighting end up becoming the showstoppers in this smart utilitarian makeover that showcases the brilliance of adaptive reuse.
This also allowed the new homeowners to showcase their wide collection of artwork and unique décor pieces that they accumulated over the years. Smartly placed windows and skylights further enhanced the relaxed joyful mood indoors while fully addressing privacy concerns.
The smart use of shaded structures allows the homeowners to spend more time outside than indoors even on a sunny day as they take in the majesty of the French Riviera at its absolute best!
Celebrating old structures and discarded buildings by turning them into elegant modern homes not only pays a tribute to the past but also offers a future that is sustainable and affordable.
The lower level of the home contains the public spaces including a modern kitchen and an elegant dining space while the top floor houses the bedrooms and bathrooms. Minimal but pleasing contemporary but with a hint of midcentury elegance and filled with an air of refinement this is a Chicago townhouse that breaks some of the misconceptions homeowners have when it comes to using calming neutral shades.
