In the last few years we have seen some gorgeous Edwardian homes across Australia get stylish additions and extensions that combined the residences’ old world charm with contemporary comfort. Following this smart and sustainable path is the lovely in that was renovated and revamped by Robert Nichol & Sons.
Another beautiful lakefront home that does a phenomenal job of blending with its surroundings is the Miño River House in Galicia. The inventive design of the residence presents a semi-buried unit of the house that features the living area dining space and the kitchen which seem to disappear into the side of the hill.
Using the simple yet classic form of a home with a pitched roof the timeless silhouette of the structure plays a big part in creating that dreamy appeal! With the extensive use of glass and a refined interior this Italian escape by Marco Pava promises to rejuvenate and refresh you instantly!
A balanced blend of white stained maple glass and polished steel gives the interior a modern and classy appeal while the existing façade of the townhouse was preserved and refreshed to remind its owners of its historic past. An outdoor staircase from the second level leads into the private backyard while the penthouse master suite exudes a sense of serenity and luxury.
The in was given a sparkling new lease of life by the creative folks at Turett Collaborative Architects who transformed an old dreary structure into a breezy contemporary space. And much like the many previous transformations conjured up and brought to life by the firm one can see here a distinct style that marries form and functionality in an eloquent fashion!
The modular structure of the house ensured that it was easier to construct than a regular home and took up far less in terms of both time and resources. A polystyrene filling provides the vacation retreat with the necessary thermal insulation while the large sliding glass walls open it up toward the south.
The plush bedroom and bathroom have a similar color scheme and use the cool tiles to add geometric pattern to the space even as every inch of space is maximized with smart shelves and comfy seating options. Renovating an existing townhouse involves finding the right balance between creating a trendy modern living environment and an acknowledgement of its historic past.
