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.
Blurring the traditional lines between the interior and the outdoors a series of large glass walls and sliding glass doors shape the spacious living area. A modern kitchen sits on one side of the living space while the master bedroom is located at the other end.
Adding to this rich sense of diversity is the large natural rock wall around the courtyard that is laced with tropical plants. A custom irrigation system is used to water this unique living wall that shields the home from prying eyes while providing a tinge of green to the polished residence.
Even though concrete and wood are extensively used throughout the house it is a neutral color scheme coupled with curated décor and high-end art pieces that give the residence a sophisticated contemporary aura. This continues in the sleek kitchen and the inviting dining space where color is kept to a bare minimum.
A gourmet kitchen open dining area and spacious sitting zone flow onto the deck outside and blur the traditional indoor-outdoor boundary. A restrained color scheme ensures that focus remains firmly on the use of diverse finishes.
