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.
Designed by Studio 304 the new sunken bath is the highlight of this quick upgrade as its elegant glass walls connect it visually with the small yet serene garden outside. The glass walls of the luxurious bath are further supported by a slatted larch screen that keeps away prying eyes and ensures that a tranquil garden view is balanced with complete privacy.
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.
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.
This smart sustainable module was crafted by ArchiBlox using locally sourced wood milled from sustainable forests and metallic panels that protect the home from the harsh ocean wind. But it is the gorgeous green roof of the house that truly steals the show and gives it an inimitable and exciting look.
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.
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.
