It is the double-height living room on the lower level that morphs into the heart and soul of the home with the dining area and kitchen on one side and the open outdoors on the other. Connected with the backyard pool area and the sweeping deck it has a relaxing outdoorsy feel and the open design with large glass doors and windows enhances this airy ambiance.
One of the most distinctive features of the home is its that is covered in steel and ushers in an air of timelessness to an otherwise modern structure. Turning a normal home in a multi-level residence with a lovely attic the design of the house by Dorrington Atcheson Architects fuses a distinct silhouette with seamless modern ergonomics.
The two materials present a lovely contrast visually while bringing a touch of rustic beauty to an otherwise elegant modern residence. The two distinct wings form an L-shaped structure that is completely closed towards the street and opens up in an unabated fashion towards the rear using large sliding glass doors.
A great perk in embracing the concept of adaptive reuse is the way that you can turn those old family homes into sparkling contemporary residences with little effort and creativity. This not only saves money and time but preserves all those memories that come attached with the home.
The color scheme is kept largely neutral but with a masculine twist and the lighting adds to the dark sophisticated vibe indoors. Unique furniture pieces crafted by Igor Martin for HIS add to the style of the apartment even as cleverly placed splashes of yellow give it a more pleasant and inviting look. With a dramatic contemporary bathroom and a beautiful bedroom flanked by a home workspace on one side and a walk-in wardrobe on the other this is a bachelor pad that any guy would be proud to call his own.
A modular sofa in the living room an eclectic blend of chairs in the dining room and a delightful window with multi-colored brilliance in the stairwell delight and surprise you. The lower level of the residence contains the public areas while the top floor houses the kids’ bedrooms along with the master bedroom and bathrooms.
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.
