Adaptive reuse of old structures is not only a budget-friendly way to find a new home with unique flavor but is also planet-friendly and saves on precious resources. The one-of-a-kind in Melbourne Australia personifies this smart and eco-sensitive approach to architecture as Architects EAT transformed an old brick warehouse into a gorgeous modern industrial loft.
The new kitchen also seems equally appealing with a copper backsplash that adds glitter to an otherwise neutral space in white. Charred larch slats and a cool copper worktop add to its uniqueness even as the dining area next to it flows into the garden outside.
The upper level with its minimal bedroom contemporary bathroom and an exquisite terrace deck that offers unabated views of the town completes this ingenious and light-filled contemporary home where outdoor living becomes the main focus of design and architecture.
Designed by Studio 304 the new sunken bath is the highlight of this quick upgrade as its elegant glass walls connect it visually with the small yet serene garden outside. The glass walls of the luxurious bath are further supported by a slatted larch screen that keeps away prying eyes and ensures that a tranquil garden view is balanced with complete privacy.
Taking the idea of a green rooftop garden a step further is the spectacular Penthouse Ecopark in Hung Yen Province . This modern home designed by iHouse combines a distinct industrial-style living area with a terrace garden that also holds a Jacuzzi a glass pergola and an outdoor lounge. The terrace garden is visually connected with the master bedroom and allows the homeowners to escape the rigors of a long and hard day at work each evening.
The two bedrooms are simple and minimal even as the stunning bathroom with a sunken bathtub promises panoramic views of the ocean and beyond. For a modular green home Avalon does not disappoint even from a conventional standard!
The small living area with its textured wall cozy fireplace and colorful Moroccan-style lighting fixtures feels both inviting and modern. With a comfy seat next to the fireplace and a plush couch on the opposite side of the room the living room acts as a transitional zone between the foyer the dining area and beyond.
