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 1950’s home now hosts a family with two teenage twins and its ageing structure could no longer meet the demands of their fast-paced life. The new interior completely moves away from the original as the additions and changes to the East Fremantle home turn the lower level into a vibrant and inviting social zone.
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 Thorp Design creation the new interior of this seemingly regal house is all about blending the old and the new in a balanced and refreshingly innovative fashion. The result is impressive in the way it makes an otherwise overwhelmingly lavish setting seem cozy and even ‘private’.
Stretching just 7 meters wide and 20 meters in length the designed by 7A Architecture Studio is one such gorgeous contemporary home where two smartly planned levels maximize space with ease.
Much of the ground floor and its social zones were crafted using the input of the teenage twins and how they wanted to host friends and family. A lovely deck and pool outside add to the relaxing ambiance even as a series of sheltered decks extend the living area outside.
Nestled in the middle of a beautiful oak forest and overlooking the ocean in the distance is a Swedish home that sits next to a summer home that was originally built in the 1960’s. The contemporary structure makes its presence felt with a dark and dashing exterior that is minimal and lit elegantly using sconce lighting.
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.
