IF you are familiar with the work of like this amazing renovation of an old mill with stone walls on the Scottish border that we featured awhile ago the mesmerizing transformation of the White House barely surprises you!
Designed by Utz Sanby Architects the unique private house sits on the edge of a rocky cliff that is 100 meters above sea level. Adding to the architectural conundrum is the narrow lot where high neighboring buildings are all too close.
The TV room is connected with the modern sunroom using custom sliding doors that also hide away the television when not needed. This not only saves space but helps control the level of natural light that enters the TV room and the living area.
Adapting to the needs of its denizens and using fun geometric shapes and contrasting textures to keep the interior interesting this Israeli home is designed to evolve with changing lifestyle choices and decorating trends.
This gorgeous in is another case in the point as it uses exposed brick walls duct pipes and a wonderful array of diverse textures to create a unique elegant and functional modern home. Conjured up and brought to life by Shaping Your Space it is these contrasting finishes that give the loft its distinct aura.
The lower level family area is connected with the wooden deck and backyard outside even as the kitchen and dining space are flooded with ample natural light. With a design that allows the parents to constantly keep an eye on their three young boys this is a home crafted to withstand loads of activity!
But the offers much more that mere aesthetics as dark floor tiles reduce the glare from the ocean and high louvres keep the interior cool in a natural fashion. Rainwater tanks capable of holding 5000l of water provide the home with almost all of its water needs while passive heating and cooling techniques cut down on energy consumption. This not only makes life at this beachside home a lot easier but also adds to its sustainability quotient.
