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!
Large glass doors windows and smart design create a pavilion-style living space kitchen and dining area that is blessed with ample natural ventilation. While the lower level contains the public areas the top floor houses additional bedrooms and bathrooms. The L-shaped design of the house also creates a natural private retreat that becomes a part of the living space visually.
It is the lower level that houses the living areas while the top floor holds three bedrooms bathrooms and a cozy tranquil study. The original Georgian stone façade additional stone walls and the soul of the White House are carefully preserved and one can see that this is an overhaul that is sensitive to the historical context and the current needs of the project. A perfect alchemy indeed!
In fact it is the outdoors that adds color magnetism and a sense of liveliness to a residence that otherwise seems restrained and understated. Large glass doors and windows coupled with drapes allow the homeowners to switch between unabated views and complete privacy with ease.
