Designed by design studio Johnson Chou this beautiful house seems to offer two entirely different worlds packed into one. The ground floor sports the kitchen living dining study and guest quarters which are all clad in some old-world charm with the use of ebony wood veneer panels.
The use of wood has been smart and trendy and complements perfectly the large portions of glass both in its texture and in its varying shades. The spacious master bedroom and the master bath along with the modern kitchen that is both contemporary in function and classic in form give this home a balanced look. With green building materials and energy-saving insulation and heating methods the renovated home is all about smart sustainability.
It is always better to go for a revamp and remodeling of your existing home than to dismantle the structure completely to get something ‘newer and shinier’. It is not just cost effective and resourceful but will save you plenty of hassle and with all the magic that modern design studios unleash you can still get exactly the home that you have dreamed about.
The idea here has been to create a Vietnamese home that looks lavish and yet is not too heavy on the purse strings. The front block of the home sports the living area along with the kitchen while the bedrooms are placed in the adjacent second block with an additional room on the first floor. Compact and cool this is a wonderful example of smart and savvy design.
This latest revamped home comes in from South Africa and conjured up and completed by Nico van der Meulen Architects it is both modern and inviting in its outlook. The revamp project has been dubbed as ‘House The’ (Yup does not seem a very creative name but we can live with it) and the extensive remodeling was done on the ground floor as many of the internal walls were done away with to create one large and unobstructed flowing space.
Modern homes are not just about great places to live in that are clad with luxury and filled with décor that is both aesthetically pleasing and ergonomic. It is all about maximizing what it has to offer. When it comes to providing the perfect view luxury homes condos beach houses and even city apartments are all trying to attract the consumers by giving them a view that they cannot refuse. Of course they is nothing like waking up in the morning and staring at the vast stretch of blue and enjoying the point where the ocean and the sky meet.
While these compact homes reflect the best in modern architecture and design they also show the undeniable appeal of small-space living. Who doesn’t love a challenge? And what could be more challenging than stripping life down to the barest of essentials especially in an age of excess?
