A green roof though is neither revolutionary nor is it anything incredibly complicated to work with. The idea has been around for more than half a century and for some reason or the other it has simply not caught on as much as it should have. But the last decade has seen a surge in green sustainable home design and with it interest in green roof designs has peaked.
For most of us it is the ground floor of our home that holds the entrance and the living area with the top level holding the bedrooms and other private spaces. But the Cliff Dwelling nestled on a steep cliff next to Lake Austin flips this floor plan to suit the specific needs of the site and it is the rooftop garden retreat and entrance that steal the show here.
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.
Remodeling an old home into a modern delight that meets the needs of its contemporary owners is a hard task in itself. But this becomes even more challenging when you have to incorporate space-savvy features and smart storage options that make the most of every inch on offer.
But this fabulous terraced home in London got a modern upgrade with an amazing and relaxing sunken bath as its true showstopper. Nestled in a lovely neighborhood of East London the gives a classic British home a smart modern upgrade with a sparkling kitchen dining area stylish bathroom and toilet that extend into the garden outside.
Folding glass doors connect this area with the small garden and the entire space becomes one visually. The greenery outside also becomes a part of interior and enlivens an otherwise neutral space where color is kept to a minimum.
Industrial design elements large pendant lights and a skylight above the dining area add fun and quirky details that blend in with the overall appeal of the home. A white kitchen space with a gorgeously lit backsplash minimal décor and a smart entertainment unit in the sitting area complete the ergonomic transformation.
