Paris surprises us often with apartments and homes that bring forth new and space-savvy design that sets the benchmark for houses across the planet. Eco-Sustainable House project by Djuric Tardio Architectes is one such work of genius that turns to a terrace garden play area and hangout to combine the multiple needs of the homeowners. Built on a tight budget the unique fruit and vegetable garden on the roof is much more than just eye candy!
Sometimes a simple extension or addition is all it takes to turn a dark and boring old home into a stylish modern hub fit for an urbane family. Once a grand Victorian villa and then a more modest traditional British house was in need of an urgent upgrade as its homeowners wanted to transform its ambiance and appeal completely.
Being a mobile home at its heart the home can simply be erected on the site in minimal time and this prevents permanent damage to the forest lot. A series of large glass walls and doors connect the interior with the lush green landscape outside while a neutral color palette shapes the interior. Pops of purple yellow and green bring a hint of color to home that needs barely any thanks to the scenery that surrounds it!
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.
With a simple change in height of the level the living area stands out from the foyer on one side and the dining area and kitchen on the other. Small staircases connect these various levels and a neutral color scheme ensures that there is a sense of continuity despite the clear demarcation of individual spaces.
An open living area with the kitchen on one side along with the breakfast area and the dining space on the other is filled with plenty of natural light even as industrial-style décor and large pendants enhance the overall vibe of the Spanish residence.
Nestled in a tranquil neighborhood of London there was plenty of space on offer for Scenario Architecture to give the classic home a smart makeover that connects the interior with the gorgeous green garden outside.
