Ceramic and terrazzo finishes also give the home plenty of textural contrast with the warm and traditional kitchen becoming the heart and soul of this Asian residence. The living area also uses color in a sophisticated manner with green walls and a neutral backdrop creating a picture-perfect setting.
The basic idea behind the design of the house is to keep things simple with a minimal decorating style taking over. On the outside the house is draped in white and gray and this polished color scheme holds sway inside as well.
A small and traditional home in need of a modern makeover is a situation that we come across on a pretty regular basis. Nestled in the suburbs of Sydney this federation semi-detached cottage residence was given a quick makeover with a brand new addition in the rear by Amrish Maharaj Architect expanding the available space and also creating fresher more modern living environment.
A cantilevered house brings with it a unique set of advantages that homes on raised platforms just cannot offer. For starters you have a façade that is quite stunning and instantly grabs the attention of anyone walking past the home.
It is the rear of the house that gets a dramatic facelift with the new addition while the street façade remains completely unchanged. This preserves the original classic vibe of the residence even while ensuring that the interior has an aura that is inspired by modern industrial lofts in cities like New York and Vancouver.
Most modern apartment structures not only feel sterile and boring but are often viewed as buildings that impact the urban landscape in a negative fashion by wasting vast energy resources and leaving a huge carbon footprint.
A flood of natural light and a neutral backdrop add to the newfound sense of spaciousness with the bedrooms study and other private areas sitting at the front. For many of us 7 meters of space does not seem like much. But there are townhouses across the globe that work with far less in terms of the width available to them.
The in is a world in itself. With an imposing structure curated gardens all around it and an interior that combines old world English charm with modern chic and country styles this impressive residence feels comfortable and breathtaking at the same time!
