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.
Functionality and comfort are the two key aspects that defined the transformation with form taking a backseat at times. The wooden deck outside visually becomes a part of the living room and kitchen and adds textural contrast along with a stone fireplace that sits next to the glossy all-white contemporary kitchen. A household that is pragmatic and cozy to its core!
But one look at the spectacular residence and you will realize that whatever superlatives you use do not really do justice to its sheer ingenuity and grandeur. Nestled amidst the lovely canopy Flagstaff Hill the cantilevered home seems like a luxury retreat that jumped out of a sci-fi movie.
While it might seem like a revamped and rejuvenated old farmhouse from the outside the residence is in fact a brand new structure that was intentionally designed to bring some old world charm indoors.
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.
