A black and white kitchen with stone island and countertops occupies a corner on the top floor with a small living area and dining space situated next to it. A slim contemporary fireplace and a cozy reading nook complete this living zone that also overlooks the entrance below.
Less than an hour from Windsor is one of those idyllic Aussie towns that combines the flavor of the outback with modernity and a relaxed lifestyle. The gorgeous is nestled in a quiet neighborhood of this beautiful town and its unique design ensures that the conventional boundaries between the interior and the outdoors are blurred using sliding glass doors.
It is a rear extension that gets the job done as the glazed timber addition now holds the new dining area kitchen and family room of the revitalized house. Crafted to ensure that those inside enjoy an open and airy living atmosphere that is accentuated by the visual connectivity with the green outdoors the nifty extension blends in with the existing structure almost seamlessly. A clean white color palette sits next to the already present exposed brick walls comfortably even as large skylights bring in a flood of natural light.
The homeowners wanted a residence that incorporated a part of their old villa was far less rigid and a lot more open in design. Irving Smith Architects accomplished precisely that with the new modern structure that offers a design that is evolutionary and practical!
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 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.
When thinking of a quick home renovation or a makeover the bathroom is not a space that springs to the top of our wish list. That spot is often reserved for the kitchen or the bedroom. Get past those two and you tend to focus on the living room or even the dining area before you work your way towards the kitchen.
