We all have had that moment in our lives when we feel that all we need is just ‘one more room’ to truly complete our home. And then we move on to a bigger house and the feeling remains despite all that newfound space!
The most impressive and distinct feature of this luxurious residence is undoubtedly its front-to-back two-story entrance foyer and stairway. If the sheer grandeur of the entry room along with the playfulness of the pivoting wood door make the entrance more special then it is a series of sliding glass doors that bring in natural light and transform the interior into a cheerful setting. A series of terraces and walkways further strengthens this bond between the interior and the outdoors as the transition from the living room to the outdoor hangout is almost seamless.
The problem is often not the lack of space but the way we put existing space to use. We simply do not pay enough attention to the vertical space on offer and utilize it to the hilt as this smart modern residence in Slovakia does.
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.
Consuming 90% less energy than dictated by local building norms this modern home also demands very little in terms of maintenance. As you move beyond the woodsy exterior and head indoors it is a minimal all-white living area that greets you.
