Large windows in the bedroom and living areas usher in natural light even as the open plan living area eliminates the need for any additional partitions. Insulation and waterproofing upgrades for the roof complete the alteration which is stylish sensitive to the original design of the house and budget-friendly.
The lower level of the house contains the double-height living area along with a kitchen and dining space that showcases vibrant yellow and orange accents. The top floor houses five bedrooms with each having their own color scheme along with bathrooms and family areas.
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 exterior of the home is clad in a wonderful blend of stone wood concrete and glass while the pool and garden give it a relaxing natural vibe. This seamless alchemy of contrasting textures gives the Garden House its trademark rustic modern look.
The result: the dingy dark interior was transformed into a bright and beautiful setting. As is the norm these days the home has a new rear extension that flows into the backyard as the Nest Architects completely revamped the ambiance of this small family residence.
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.
The focal point of the house is most obviously the pool area and the outdoor lounge that comes with a dedicated kitchen barbeque zone and an Asian-style pergola that keeps the sun away on hot sultry days. The entire space is designed to create a ‘holiday resort’ vibe and the vivacious color of the pool tiles definitely accentuates this appeal.
