The dining room and kitchen of the once-boring cottage home now showcase a more modern sheen with large windows bringing the outdoors inside. A minimal bedroom with walls partly covered in oak and a bathroom in black and white borrow from the curated crisp and classy color scheme and style of the living space. Kids’ rooms with multiple storage options and a space-savvy design complete the transformation for the Sydney home that is a cultured urban delight!
Adding to the sheen of the steel façade are framed accent panels in perforated aluminum clad in bright red. The entry of the renovated home also features a tinge of red while the living area bedrooms and bathrooms showcase smart red accents. This creates a visual connection between the interior and the exterior despite the use of contrasting materials. Split into three levels the lowest floor houses a rental while the top two levels make up the owner’s duplex. The second level contains the living area kitchen dining space and home office / TV room of the duplex and the top floor houses the master suite along with additional bedrooms and bathrooms.
The pool house was crafted with the picture-perfect landscape that surrounds it in mind and its large sliding glass doors ensure that the line between the interior and the world outside is almost non-existent.
Reclaimed wood is used throughout the home to minimize wastage of materials and the cozy home also keeps its carbon footprint to a bare minimum. From an aesthetic viewpoint the exquisite blend of textures unassuming décor and the woodsy charm of rustic style give this transformed barn home an inviting and curated ambiance.
And if you’re looking for something a bit softer around the edges BMT’s egg-shaped Sea-Suite might fit the bill perfectly. The oblong design was actually first developed for a cruise liner terminal in Hong Kong but was reused to envision a series of beach homes and floating residences.
