Designed by HAO Design the interior of this contemporary home espouses a love for the natural and loads of activity! Instead of a living room one walks into a study and playground inside this nifty home in Taiwan where the homeowners placed emphasis on creating a space that was relaxing playful and expressive.
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!
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!

Crafted with ingenuity and elegance by Bernardes Arquitetura the stunning vacation home turns the Atlantic into its backyard as the top level infinity edge pool visually becomes one with the waves just a hundred meters away!
But it is the eclectic theme used throughout the house the fascinating collection of thrift store finds and antique pieces and the splattering of DIY creations that truly steal the spotlight. And yet one does not feel overwhelmed by too much color or pattern at any instant.
Designed by Martins Camisuli Architects the original residence largely features exposed brick walls which add to the beautiful narrative of the extension. The project replaced an existing internal courtyard with a greater usable living area while adding a lovely kitchen and dining nook that utilizes the available space in a smart fashion.
