We are all creatures of habit. The world of architecture and design is no different with straight lines simple cubic volumes and blank ceilings often becoming the norm. But this contemporary home in offers a new idea for the bibliophiles out there. A giant bookshelf that spans an entire double-height wall is nothing new in itself.
Divided into four different blocks the house accommodates a spacious workshop a reclusive studio and ample parking space along with the central living area kitchen and dining. Even the bedrooms with their large bi-folding doors become a part of panoramic landscape!
An inverted U-shaped cantilevered canopy cozy fireplace and smart marble finishes complete this gorgeous Aussie home where the outdoors are welcome indoors with glee. There are times when old structures are altered ever so slightly to accommodate changing lifestyles and modern needs.
Looking beyond the bookshelf the house on the outside is draped completely in black and the oblique wall used for the bookshelf also helps in creating a shield against heavy rainfall by extending the roof outwards.
From the small front yard to the central courtyard and the guest bedrooms in the rear every room of the house echoes the uncomplicated and functional design philosophy of the makeover. Life seems like an absolute breeze at this rejuvenated Seattle home!
A smart study room that can be transformed into a guest bedroom when needed and gorgeous private bedrooms complete this elegant addition and alteration. Modern homes are all about interaction between the structure the landscape and those within. Instead of being confining spaces they intend to be liberating edifices that facilitate a harmonious relationship with nature.
Sliding glass doors concrete floors and wooden walls and pavilion wooden roof shape the beautiful new dining area lounging space kids’ play zone and interactive and entertaining areas. Each room flows into the next even while maintaining its own individual identity while a south facing courtyard unifies it all ever so diligently. The transformation feels organic and the pavilion roof extends even outside to form the carport and offers shelter for the ingenious walkways.
