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.
The living area on the lower level of the house comprises the sitting area dining space work area and a contemporary kitchen and each area flows into the next. A nifty partition made out of tree trunks adds as a visual separation next to the small workspace that can also easily double as a breakfast nook when needed.
Having found a suitable building that was once a grocery a printing press and a mechanic’s shop the homeowners turned to Emerick Architects who transformed it into a truly spectacular home that brilliantly combines functionality and aesthetics.
The nifty idea results in a home that pays rich tribute to the heritage of the existing mill while turning the interior into a modern retreat. The original stone walls were reinforced and restored carefully while the glittering new addition in wood acts as a room-within-a-room and even ends up creating a glazed clerestory! Pine boards and polished concrete define the new floors while construction-grade spruce plywood ends up adding warmth to the walls.
The townhouse revamp brings together the old and the new and gives the home spread across several levels a more modern appeal. Yet the ambiance of the interior is distinctly industrial with glass metal and brick being used heavily throughout.
The single-family house was revamped to bring the outdoors inside while creating a private deck space a barbecue area and a relaxing backyard that includes a small pool. Custom-made panels and a smashing wooden deck combine to extend the living area outside with effortless ease.
