If you have ever been to the city of you will be pretty familiar with those lovely Victorian homes of the city that seem to be neatly stacked up next to one another. This gorgeous seems just like another one of those many elegant houses from the outside but step inside and you will see a completely different world!
Well the innovative folks at Baumraum decided to turn this ‘dream holiday’ into an everyday lifestyle choice that allows homeowners to leave the rush of the urban jungle behind. Located in beautiful the is an exotic retreat that is far away from civilization.
With an almost industrial approach to design ergonomics and passive heating and cooling techniques that cut down on energy consumption take precedence here. Clean straight lines give the home a contemporary look while the social zones the public areas and even the bedrooms on the top level open up towards the gorgeous backyard and pool area. It is this landscape that defines the overall form of the house and with a concrete pool deck visually extending the living space outdoors there is plenty of opportunity created for fun family time.
The design of the Black House Blues and its remote location allows the residents to play their favorite tracks loudly while the large living area integrated with the top level lets them enjoy the songs from every corner of the home.
The lower levels of the holiday home consist of an open plan living area with the kitchen and dining space on one end and a lovely bedroom on the other flank that opens up towards the courtyard outside. Twin stairs connect the ground floor with the top level that houses three other bedrooms and bathrooms along with the family room and a small stove section. A perfect escape that glorifies the charm of adaptive reuse!
The all-white kitchen with its marble countertops features a gorgeous central island at the heart of this ‘social space’ which creates plenty of opportunity for interaction between family members. A large wooden deck pergola and outdoor dining add to the open-air lifestyle.
Complete with a spacious wooden deck that sits next to the new living area the classy extension seems to blend in with the old existing structure of the family home. Oak flooring ply ceilings glass walls and large stacked glass doors give the revitalized interior a breezy casual aura and the flood of natural light also brings along with it cozy warmth during cold winter months.
