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.
Years of poorly planned additions and modifications to a home that are aimed at short-term fixes can often turn even the most beautiful house into a dingy dark and uncomfortable setting. This was precisely the case with the Grosvenor Street Bungalow that is located in the suburb of before the folks from Dorrington Atcheson Architects decided to give it a lovely modern makeover. The strategy was to turn this congested private residence into a cheerful and ergonomic contemporary home that meets the needs of an urban family.
This multi-story home was remodeled by Feldman Architecture to combine the classic Victorian exterior with a bright and airy contemporary interior promising the best of both worlds. Steel and glass play a major part in the stylish makeover while gray and white dominate the color palette.
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.
With a roof garden and to power the house it is a lot more energy-efficient than it seems. With an additional guest apartment a model-train room and other facilities downstairs this is a renovated residence that completely bowls you over with its charm!
The lower level of the house contains the living space multiple workstations and a gorgeous kitchen with a versatile island at its heart. With two bedrooms and bathrooms the focus here is firmly on making the best use of the available space while ensuring that one room flows into another effortlessly. Thanks to the large glass windows the outdoors become a part of the interior even as the neutral color scheme lets pops of curated red shine through.
The elegant forest house has a distinctly contemporary appeal and even though the exterior is draped in black the interior presents a contrasting white picture. A large living area with a smart mezzanine level is at the heart of the residence with minimal decor and warm wooden surfaces adding character and personality to the setting.
