In the past we have seen some amazing penthouses and New York City townhouses that have swept us off our feet with their grandeur. The innovative architects at Turett are at the forefront of this smart trend that not only turns narrow townhouses into sensational modern homes but also gives old structures a dazzling new lease on life. Transforming a that was also used as a painter’s studio into a handsome home for a family of four this latest project from Turett is another brilliant case in point!
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.
A floating staircase with a glass railing leads to the top level that houses the cozy bedroom and a sky garden that brings tranquility and freshness to the residence. Another enclosed exterior garden also ensures that there is no dearth of greenery in this that brings together style and serenity!
The exterior of the house is clad in black to set it apart from the other homes in the area. A gives the façade its unique look while keeping the sun away. Designed by David Edelman Architects the L-shaped home is spread across two different levels with the lower level housing the public spaces and the top floor containing the private quarters.
The lower floor houses the public areas that include the sleek state-of-the-art kitchen in pristine white a smashing dining area with a tulip table and chairs and a smart living room with a generous use of bright pops of color.
The custom-crafted staircase in blackened steel and oak anchors the entire area while the state-of-the-art kitchen in white steals the show with its array of varied textures. White acrylic cabinet surfaces Calacatta marble counters and a custom-crafted backsplash add intrigue even as the iconic Cherner bar stools add a touch of warmth to the area.
High concrete walls wood and glass are combined elegantly to shape the large entry that adds drama and exclusivity to the residence. A spacious open living area welcomes you with a fabulous fireplace at its heart and a smart kitchen in the backdrop.
