Glass doors and walls connect the kitchen and dining spaces with the courtyard outside and this revitalizes the interior and gives it a bright and cheerful ambiance that the homeowners desired.
When Dom Arquitectura was brought in to give the home a quick facelift they were asked to do so without actually altering the existing volume drastically. The idea of adding an iron and wicker pergola to extend the living area into the rear garden was the stroke of genius that accomplished this metamorphosis with ease.
The kitchen alteration was carried out by Christy Allen Designs who also aided the owners in picking the right colors décor lighting options artwork and accessories for the rest of the house. The final result is a comfy contemporary interior that exudes an air of refinement.
It is not just all pomp and splendor at The Edge though as a roof that is harvested to in-ground water tanks integrated with all hydraulic systems energy-efficient LED lighting a concrete shell that keeps the home cool and shelters it from tropical storms and a minimal footprint make it an eco-friendly marvel as well. The cascading waterfall in the room also adds to the temperature control feature with the evaporating water keeping the heat away on blistering summer afternoons.
The main features of the revamped house are the wooden deck the new family zone and the kids’ playroom that interact with one another to create one large activity space that the entire family can enjoy.
This is a home design trend that is on the up and up with most homeowners wanting an extension that acts as a transition zone between the existing main structure and the open courtyard or patio. Crafted by Schulberg Demkiw Architects the transformed Aussie residence relies on a sense of openness and interlinked spaces to fashion the perfect family home.
On the inside the living room also adds to this natural vibe with a lush green living wall and water feature that steal the spotlight. A blend of deliberately contrasting volumes textures and finishes adds to this look of ‘curated chaos’ that every level of the house exudes.
