The key demand of the homeowners was not only to add more living space but to turn this dreary house into a modern delight with an open plan living area that encourages interaction between family members. The floor plan of the residence was completely altered and a new living area with an adjacent kitchen was conjured up and brought to life.
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.
Dubbed the mezzanine level of this house hovering above the kitchen and the living area holds two bedrooms and makes the most of the height of the interior. Designed by Architekti Šercel Švec the house was built on a base plate to protect the existing root system of vegetation on the landscape and this helped sustain a lush green garden that is connected with the interior visually. Sliding glass doors offer unabated views of the neighborhood even while extending the living room into the wooden deck and garden outside.
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.
