Reviving and refurbishing this beautiful English home with modernity while leaving its rich heritage undisturbed Fraher Architects did a splendid job of combing the past with the present in an effortless and sensible fashion.
The new open plan living area flows into the cool dining space that overlooks the deck outside with the small kitchen in white sitting next to it. A drawing room sits between the living room and the kitchen and acts as a connecting and transitional zone. Two relaxing bedrooms and a bathroom on the top level complete the exquisite makeover that finds a balance between modernity and classic elegance!
It is hard to imagine that a home as splendid and extravagant as the in Texas was a dark and dingy structure from the 1980s until recently. It was only after its new owners turned to Miró Rivera Architects that the true potential of this fabulous Texas home and the lot on which it sits were fully realized.
The concrete lower structure offers a perfect stable base for the four-bedroom residence with the cor-ten walls and roof of the top level bringing in the wow factor. On the inside the image changes dramatically with neutral hues and the warmth of wood offering a relaxing contemporary retreat.
Once you step inside this elegant home the image of the dark stained cedar exterior is quickly replaced by a breezy living space clad in neutral hues and an open living area that is filled with ample natural light.
