The entrance of the private home seems modest but the interior opens up to reveal a spacious living area surrounded by glass windows. The color scheme inside the home is as neutral as possible with pops of yellow and orange being used to add some color. Wood is the major component of the beachfront residence along with a steel framework that gives it a perched silhouette. A living area three serene bedrooms and 2 lovely traditional bathrooms complete this beautiful escape that is priced at $4 million.
Even in Scotland the stone cottage has gone modern proving that this style can endure the ages. (This structure from Croft 103 is sustainable too.) Two neighboring derelict cottages on the Irish coast were rebuilt and then combined using a modern addition of a glass vestibule. The result is an incredibly modern dwelling by Peter Legge Associates.
Have you ever felt that the magic of your new home or renovated apartment wore off all too quickly and you were left searching for ways to recapture that excitement? The creative folks at Andrew Maynard Architects came up with an innovative new way to keep things fresh and unique as they turned an old boring structure in Australia into a truly one-of-a-kind modern home.
A smart renovation is one that makes use of the existing structure in the best possible manner while transforming its ambiance and giving it the desired facelift. Typifying this to perfection is the gorgeous that blurs the line between the interior and the ravishing outdoors while giving the structure a touch of sustainability.
A sleek staircase leads the way to the top floor that houses the private quarters which follow a similar color scheme and charm with ingenious textural beauty. Apart from the brilliant use of wood steel and concrete white is the color that dominates the overall setting with pops of green and yellow being used sparingly. A lovely backyard becomes an extension of the lower level living zone thanks to the use of sliding glass doors while a beautiful brick exterior stays true to the roots of the house.
