Even when the picket fence is not in the center of attention it’s hard to imagine the yard without it. The focal point is undoubtedly the house and the fence may be hidden among the tall flowers but just catching a glimpse of it can be felt upon the ambiance of the whole home!
There is something so familiar about a white picket fence that it immediately draws us in. It is compelling to look at urging us to get closer to it and the breathtaking garden that’s lying behind it. We can stare at the fence in fascination wondering if the interior of the house does the marvelous exterior justice!
Since the home did not have to accommodate spaces for kids there was a certain amount of design freedom that the architects gladly tapped into. The open and long living area is flanked by dining space and kitchen on one end and the bedroom on the other.
Adaptive reuse and smart extensions have largely replaced home transformations that involve replacing existing structures with entirely new buildings. Apart from saving time energy and resources this also preserves a sense of history and nostalgia.
Designed by MODO Designs the structure of this pavilion-style retreat is divided into two sections with the front façade holding the public spaces and the more sheltered rear edifice containing the bedrooms and the bathrooms.
