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.
This effect is even more profound in case of natural light and the in is a perfect example of how creative design can usher in sunlight into the most improbable places! Designed by Ben Callery Architects the rear extension of this narrow brick house in Melbourne relies on a roof that curves towards the sky to fill its living area with sunlight.
Your beautiful fence can have a really strong decorative component especially if you combine it with stunning rosy flowers. Your front yard will have a super elegant look! A house with a significant retro style is made even classier by a traditional white picket fence channeling a look that loudly screams home sweet home!
The rooftop heated pool is divided into two distinct parts with a swimming lane and a resting zone. A marble kitchen island brings sophistication and style to the interior with large drapes allowing you to switch easily between amazing views and complete privacy.
Replacing the old staircase with the new design not only enhanced the visual appeal of the home but also saved space by 20 percent giving the architects more room to work with. Replacing the old larger kitchen with an ergonomic cutting-edge kitchen that is much smaller also freed up space for the living room.
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.
A series of folding glass doors with dark frame delineate the interior from the outdoor hangout even while allowing light to flow through unhindered. The innovative roof does the rest as it brings the northern sunlight while giving the open plan living kitchen and dining a more spacious and breezy ambiance.
