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.
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.
The main objective of the residence was to create a nurturing and caring environment for three young boys and to open up a world of amazing natural sights and sounds that leave them enthralled. Nestled on the river’s edge and surrounded by beautiful woods the three minimal structures of the house were placed to create private and cozy outdoor hangouts that are sheltered from the elements.
The arrangement of the three individual units is inspired by rocks around a campfire and the simplicity of their design and striking dark exterior make them even more appealing. The black cladding also lets the home blend into the forest and melt away after sunset while it stands out as a gorgeous contemporary addition during the day. Large glass doors and windows connect the interior with the landscape even as the living area bedrooms and kids’ bunk beds exude an air of serenity and unassuming charm.
Visualized with plenty of urban flair and a dash of greenery by Buro 108 the gorgeous home welcomes you with a grand living area that is clad entirely in gray. There is undoubtedly a modern industrial feel to the with the outstanding lounge that contains an indoor plant and a round tree seat becoming the showstopper here.
The design and realization of this breezy yet unique structure was left to the inventive people at Brahma-Architects who definitely produced results that left everyone excited and engrossed. Reclaimed wood planks play a major role in shaping the ambiance of the giving both the exterior and the interior a quirky relaxing aura.
