On the outside a distinctive aluminum trellis provides shade to those on the terraces and also ushers in cool geometric contrast. With an amazing infinity-edge pool and outdoor lounge this is one Texas home where opulence and ergonomics come together with unrivaled panache.
The smart insertion connects the main house with the two new bedrooms at the rear of the lot and turns a classic Melbourne residence with brick façade into a unique and exquisite contemporary dwelling. Designed by Steffen Welsch Architects the rejuvenated home hosts a family of five thanks to the improved and extended living area.
Promising a lifestyle that takes you back into the lap of nature even while delivering modern comfort and aesthetics the designed by ARCHITECTUREFIRM combines two contrasting worlds in a relaxing and ravishing fashion.
The sight of old brick-clad terrace houses in London takes you back in time and brings back the image of a more simple era that the world seems to have sped past. Nestled in the unique and iconic neighborhood of Roupell Street Conservation area in central London the is one such timeless treasure that was left unoccupied for over 10 years now.
But what sets this fabulous modern home next to apart is its striking exterior crafted mainly from Cor-Ten steel and in-situ concrete with glass and brick also being used sporadically. Giving the exterior a bright orange and modern industrial appeal this smart residence designed by Sandy Rendel Architects draws your attention instantly.
An engaging and non-intrusive rear and side extension in steel frame and glass extend the living area and create space for outdoor dining and living. The glass structure also brings natural light into the refurbished home with a neutral color scheme and re-upholstered décor adding to the cheerful ambiance.
Keeping away from excess it is this minimal approach that defines the color scheme and the décor choices on the inside as well. An open living space spacious kitchen and light-filled dining room make up the new ‘social zone’ that is filled with ample natural light and flows into the deck outside.
