The house has been crafted with a unique concrete exterior that is broken up by large glass walls even as the stunning infinity pool on the ceiling and the dark bathroom unit stand in contrast.
The small Victorian house was in need of a contemporary upgrade and this came in the form of a breezy rear addition that now contains the new kitchen dining area storage space and bathroom. Relying on a neutral color scheme that is anchored in white and ample natural light the stylish extension flows into the small garden outside.
Even though much of the focus remains on the wooden courtyard pool area and the shaded walkways life on the inside is equally enjoyable with modern minimal style holding sway. Exposed concrete surfaces brick walls painted in white and stone countertops in black create textural contrast without moving away from the neutral color scheme.
A unique feature of the house is its distinctive pitched roof and polygon façade that were largely determined by the slope of the site local building norms and a desire of the homeowners to combine privacy with unabated views.
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 house and a fence can blend together so well they seem to become one entity. The exterior feels synchronized in the most wonderful way capturing the allure of simplicity. A retro house is a total eye candy! Everybody gushes as they pass it and it would seem unfair to completely block it from the onlookers. A white picket fence is a great way to set up a barrier without blocking the view.
Open shelves in the corner along with closed cabinets in white enhance the minimal appeal of the addition even as smart pendant lighting blends into the contemporary backdrop. Refined refreshing and exquisite this space-savvy addition makes a big difference to the St. David Street House!
