The extensive use of glass doors for the new addition means that the parents can always keep an eye on the kids from almost every room in the house and even when they are out on the deck.
The presence of this ply clad addition saves space helps in better organization of the rest of the house and also delineates the kids’ playroom from the living area without the use of additional walls.
Bring an air of freshness and openness the box-like design of the contemporary addition drew inspiration from shipping container homes and contains the new living area four bedrooms and a lovely study.
The kitchen which underwent a complete makeover now features white cabinets with shaker-style doors open floating wooden shelves and a ceramic tiled backsplash. An inviting dining space in white sits right next to the kitchen even as large windows bring in ample natural light to create a bright breezy ambiance.
A wonderful outdoor sitting area and barbecue zone are sheltered by a simple pergola while the smart and restrained use of windows creates that elusive balance between privacy and connectivity with the outdoors. Décor in the living area kitchen and bedrooms is kept minimal and understated to ensure that the neutral color palette is left undisturbed.
As is the norm these days it is once again large sliding glass doors and a double-height wall of windows above that open up the otherwise ‘closed home’ towards the small private garden outside.
The modern kitchen is well and truly the heart and soul of the house and often ends up being the social zone where family members come together to catch up after a long hard day. While that is hardly surprising the owners of by KUBE Architecture in take it a step further by making their new ‘cook’s kitchen’ the focal point of their existing rowhouse makeover.
