of structures is a trend that is here to stay and many homeowners across the world are quickly starting to understand the many benefits that it offers. This beautiful and innovative in is another example of such creative reuse that not only reduces cost and wastage of materials but pays a befitting tribute to the rich heritage of the structure and the neighborhood in which it sits. Turned into an elegant modern family home by Chris Dyson Architects the revamped warehouse proudly displays its striking brick walls along with curated decor additions that reinforce the vintage setting.
Located on a lot of and surrounded by plenty of greenery the project aims to create a quiet serene natural oasis that drowns out the noise and the pollution of the big city around it. The innovative ‘treehouse’ is actually built on a column crafted using galvanized steel and its design ensures that the existing greenery is left largely undisturbed while providing the owners with a comfortable residence. With a cantilevered design the house enjoys a perfect vantage point to take in the sights and sounds around it and its wooden interior offers wonderful insulation.
Aluminum composite panels cover one side of the exterior creating a beautiful visual that seems to change depending on the intensity of the light outside. While each only offers of space everything seems cleverly organized to make the most of every inch on offer. The steel base provides additional storage space and the planet-friendly homes do the best they can to combine contemporary aesthetics with green goodness.
The relaxing outdoor lounge offers additional seating options even as specially crafted white panels keep away any prying eyes. The entire residence has a cheerful modern and calming ambiance that is accentuated by clever ambient lighting. Interesting wall art books and accessories bring color to a space that is otherwise clad largely in white and gray.
But it is the new glass and timber ‘box-shaped addition’ in the rear that truly transforms this old structure and gives it a sparkling new lease on life. This contemporary pavilion contains the new living area kitchen and dining room and opens up towards the gorgeous garden outside.
Combining the timeless with the trendy contemporary style with a world of contrasting textures in is truly a one-of-a-kind modern residence. But having previously come across some lovely Canadian homes by Boom Town it is barely surprising to see such an array of almost ‘rustic’ materials being used so elegantly to shape the unique interiors of this home.
