Remodeling an old home into a modern delight that meets the needs of its contemporary owners is a hard task in itself. But this becomes even more challenging when you have to incorporate space-savvy features and smart storage options that make the most of every inch on offer.
A two-story vertical bar is the pivot around which the entire house is designed with one side of it containing the living areas and the others holding the service spaces. Two gardens one at the front and the other at the back provide plenty of space for the family members to enjoy the tranquil outdoors with the open living area acting as a bridge between the two. Internal partitions have been kept down to a minimum with even the top level only holding a single master bedroom along with an open sleeping space next to it.
It is one thing to turn to the adaptive reuse of old structures and transform an abandoned warehouse or an aged church into a beautiful modern home. But this task becomes even more challenging when an old upholsterer’s workshop that is just 12m X 3.7m needs to be altered into an inviting contemporary residence.
This smart approach to design allows the to blend in with the neighborhood while offering something unique and exceptional! Adding to this illusion are the overhanging flat roof eaves and the interior that is kept simple and minimal.
There are plenty of design aficionados across the world who dream about living in a ‘renovated warehouse’ that combines modern comfort with industrial aesthetics and timeless charm. This of course is not always possible because of property costs availability and the additional demands of a smart renovation. Cutting across these awkward corners and creating a breezy living atmosphere the designed by ALTS Design Office presents a brand new contemporary residence as a renovated warehouse-inspired setting.
Adaptive reuse of old structures brings much more than just cost-effective and planet-friendly housing. These revitalized and revamped buildings offer a chance to shape a unique blend of styles and textures and to incorporate innovative features that simply do not find space in newly built contemporary homes.
With an L-shaped structure there is plenty of room here for a fabulous rear garden and poolscape that was shaped by Arterra Landscape Architects. The pool becomes a part of the interior thanks to the series of large sliding glass doors and walls that make up a continuous and transparent ‘wall’ delineating the interior from the outdoors.
