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.
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.
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.
Extensions to classic Victorian and heritage homes are often rear additions in glass and metal that tend to flow into the garden outside. But the in showcases a completely different approach to the extension of living space and a revamp of the interior by utilizing an ‘insert’ that is both modern and glassy!
The new addition to the house is purposefully different from the traditional brick exterior of the house and while it does not draw aesthetically from the old structure it follows the home’s simple lines and uncomplicated form.
