Stone cottages are great at keeping heat in during the winter (stone is naturally insulating) and cool in during the summer so they are ideal for places with a varying climate. As long as they are kept up and repaired they can last for centuries.
Located in this cool contemporary family loft underwent a similar transformation as architects from ZeroEnergy Design turned the once dull and outdated space into a cheerful and ergonomic residence for a growing family.
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.
Previous partitions that created a clustered and boring look on the lower level of the house were replaced by smart strong steel beams to create an open plan living area. Wooden ceiling beams a concrete fireplace structure and lovely flooring that demarcates the living room from the kitchen and the dining areas give the home plenty of textural contrast.
Custom wall art on the walls coupled with impressive lighting immediately grabs your attention while subtle touches of blue and turquoise add to the ocean-inspired interior. A grand social zone filled with dining space that showcases a checkered floor in black and white and a sleek modern kitchen extend the lower-level living space.
As you enter the X11 you notice the wonderful use of contrasting materials that turn the living area into a captivating and visually enchanting space filled with varying textures. A coffee table and dining table with natural wooden surfaces a plush sofa in the living area that borrows from the hue of raw concrete and sleek marble additions combine in a seamless fashion here.
The use of color along with curated decor ensures that the loft does not feel like a typical industrial-style home even while letting the past of the building peak through. Wooden surfaces add warmth to each room and multi-hued rugs put the icing on the cake in a home where class color and creativity come together in the most enjoyable fashion!
