This lovely was revamped to serve the needs of an urban family and a new extension gives it a posh refined appeal. Instead of the usual glass and steel framework that is used in many such projects the architects turned toward the raw appeal of concrete here!
The interior of the existing structure had very poor ventilation and the homeowners wanted the dark and dreary space to be transformed into a cheerful hub of activity that had seamless connectivity with the outdoors. This was achieved with the addition of a modern extension in the rear along with the revitalization of the existing home.
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.
The interior is connected seamlessly with the large deck outside and the panoramic views become an organic part of the indoors. Blurring this line between the interior and the outdoors played an important role in giving the small house a ‘vacation retreat’ vibe.
The open-plan living area includes the large living space the gorgeous dining area in black that blends in with the backdrop and a state-of-the-art contemporary kitchen that is also draped in dark hues. Light gray walls and drapes provide the room with a sense of visual softness while the wooden floor and wall panels lend a touch of warmth.
We often are so obsessed with designing the perfect home that we forget about making it a fun cheerful and at the very least an inhabitable space. The catalog look with super sleek surfaces simple straight lines and bland neutrals is not a look that works for everyone.
Okay so the beautiful Floating House designed by architect Dymitr Malcew is not really a home located on the edge of a lake. In fact it is even better as it turns any lake or river into your personal retreat as you float your way to paradise!
