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.
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.
While the smart makeover leaves the street elevation of the home untouched a clever change in the floor plan of the existing structure gives the formal living room and the existing bedrooms a new lease on life. A new addition in the rear acts as the heart and soul of the revamped home as it blurs the line between the contemporary living zone and the garden outside.
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!
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.
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.
Spread across the home boasts an overall form and unassuming interior that are defined by functionality and sustainability. Large windows bring in plenty of natural light and reduce dependence on artificial illumination while warm wooden surfaces offer the perfect insulation.
