Transforming a forgotten 1920’s manor house in the heart of Luxembourg EPAD managed to turn a dark and poorly planned interior into a light-filled modern home that meets the demands of an urban family. Spread across two different levels the traditional manor house was completely altered using a new floor plan that turned two levels of the home into a living area.
The open living area also contains the kitchen and the dining room. Three of the four old bedrooms were transformed into serene contemporary bedrooms and a guest room while the additional room was turned into a home office.
Designed by Khosla Associates and nestled in the posh neighborhood of Banjara Hills in India the gorgeous contemporary residence places as much emphasis on outdoor living spaces dining areas and social zones as it does on a refined interior.
It is Crittall windows and doors that play a crucial role in shaping the form of this new addition even while ensuring that its timeless appeal and traditional aura are not completely lost. These elegant dark steel-framed windows perfectly complement the brick walls of the original structure and also give the a slight industrial appeal.
With the glass roof also bringing in ample natural light the new interior is instantly more cheerful modern and relaxing. Acting as a transitional zone between the existing house and the lovely garden this glassy extension also doubles as a cool family hangout.
Designed by ESEcolectivo Arquitectos it is OSB panels and cement boards that have been used extensively in shaping the overall silhouette of this relaxing residence along with carefully placed glass windows. This exceptional blend of contrasting materials and an open design plan make this a one-of-a-kind suburban home!
