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!
Masterfully designed by Specht Harpman Architects the rooftop garden and hangout is a perfect idea for those looking for something more than just a simple green roof. Both practical and planet-friendly the idea creates an urban oasis even in a concrete jungle!
The idea of a seems revolutionary to most of us. A covering of greenery on the roof is not something you come across often and anytime we suggest a ‘living roof’ the idea is met with wariness and doubts rather than glee.
Industrial-style windows with their dark metallic frames accentuate the past of this Aussie home even as exposed and whitewashed brick walls bring in all the textural beauty one could ask for. Open family spaces are coupled with intimate private areas and cleverly concealed bedrooms to offer a fine balance between social living and complete seclusion.
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.
