A series of sliding glass doors connect the home with the central courtyard and the rear pool retreat that also contains a spacious wooden deck barbecue zone and outdoor dining space.
A new basement level was added and the existing roof was extended creating two additional levels in the limited space available. The light-filled basement that extends into the private rear yard contains the new open plan living area along with the kitchen and dining room.
There are plenty of occasions when we have seen a dreary heritage home being transformed into a stylish contemporary residence that retains the charm of the original construction. But it is rare to find one of these classic homes being altered into a modern house that is also energy-savvy and planet-friendly. Revamped and extended by Tziallas Omeara Architecture Studio the in Australia is one such rare gem that utilizes green technology and smart design to alter its existing ambiance and effectively become a zero-energy home!
Large floor-to-ceiling shelves and open storage units in the living area create a wonderful display that holds books even as a stylish pendant light above the dining table brings cheer and contrast to the setting. An L-shaped custom vanity steals the show in the bathroom and the corner bathtub doubles as a cozy space-savvy feature.
Here the shelves are transformed into smart storage units and room dividers that combine form and function in an effortless manner. To highlight the presence of these custom shelves even further a pillar at the entrance of the house is completely covered in mirrors giving those who step in an instant view of the masterful creation.
