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.
Being a mobile home at its heart the home can simply be erected on the site in minimal time and this prevents permanent damage to the forest lot. A series of large glass walls and doors connect the interior with the lush green landscape outside while a neutral color palette shapes the interior. Pops of purple yellow and green bring a hint of color to home that needs barely any thanks to the scenery that surrounds it!
A large walk-in closet and an additional storeroom complete the home on the inside even as the fabulous wooden deck outside offers a tranquil retreat overlooking the ocean and the serene neighborhood. An idyllic blend of modern living and eco-conscious design at its uncomplicated best!
