Unlike your primary residence the focus here is often on outdoor living a serene ambiance and low-maintenance interior and décor which give you peace of mind!
Today we delve into the childhood home of Stephen Kavanagh in and take a look at a rear extension that is inviting contemporary and filled with plenty of natural light. The extension brings natural ventilation into an old terraced house and acts as a semi-open interface between the main house and the large garden outside.
Despite its contemporary appeal there is an undeniable midcentury vibe running throughout the house and this continues in the bedrooms and bathrooms as well. Smart practical and undeniable timeless!
An open living area is coupled with hand-crafted custom kitchen and a rejuvenating bath turning this stylish escape into the perfect haven for an unforgettable staycation. At times it is hard to imagine that this guest house sits next to a more reserved 19th century shingle-style home.
It is the direction of the wind from the west that defines the main access of the house and its overall silhouette. It is this spatial arrangement that also shapes the floor plan on the inside with two different wings containing the private and public areas of the home.
Simplicity often produces best results in the world of interior design and this holds true while planning for a smart rear extension as well. Nestled in a lovely neighborhood of Melbourne the has been given a modern facelift by Drawing Room Architecture even while keeping the street façade of the house completely untouched.
The smart array of reimagined and invigorated old industrial buildings in cities like New York London and Vancouver are a big part of the reason why modern industrial has become one of the hottest decorating styles in the last few years.
