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.
A series of comfy seats next to the windows allow those inside to relax in style even as a modest design approach defines the tranquil space. The house feels like an empty canvas that is being slowly filled with the colors of life… A work in progress.
A metallic stairway leads you to the top floor that houses the exquisite master bedroom with its chevron headboard wall and imaginative lighting. A spa-style bathroom and additional bedrooms complete a loft that is both welcoming and a touch ‘edgy’ at the same time.
A series frames clad from wooden slats shape the new exterior of the house and large glass windows open it up towards the southern view on offer. An open living area with a kitchen that acts as the new social zone shapes the interior even as a large bookshelf in the backdrop adds color and character to the setting.
The gorgeous home in the woods is blessed with a variety of planet-friendly features like the photovoltaic panels that provide it with all the power it needs a rainwater harvesting system that recycles and replenishes the local water source and passive heating and cooling design that keeps the internal temperature moderate. These green technologies not only cut back on the carbon footprint of the house but also make sure that the surrounding greenery and ecosystem is left largely untouched and pollution-free.
The small kitchen in the corner in white also showcases clever space-savvy design that maximizes storage options while the colorful backsplash adds a hint of green to the setting. With neat built-in seating and folding glass doors the extension definitely ups the style quotient of the London residence even as the rest of the home is given a quick upgrade to meet modern design standards.
Here the shelves are transformed into smart storage units and room dividers that combine form and function in an effortless manner. To highlight the presence of these custom shelves even further a pillar at the entrance of the house is completely covered in mirrors giving those who step in an instant view of the masterful creation.
