A remarkable world where the night sky comes alive with dancing lights in brilliant colors and the rugged landscape disappears into the rough Northern seas is undoubtedly a great setting for an off-grid home that allows you to enjoy nature at its breathtaking best.
It is a beautiful blend of contrasting eras with each offering something unique. With the latest addition housing the kitchen and the sitting zone it is the original farmhouse that contains the living area and the bedrooms.
The small Victorian house was in need of a contemporary upgrade and this came in the form of a breezy rear addition that now contains the new kitchen dining area storage space and bathroom. Relying on a neutral color scheme that is anchored in white and ample natural light the stylish extension flows into the small garden outside.
Much of the house was crafted using wood and concrete with large glass windows aluminum frames and stucco walls shaping the interior. Despite its minimal style the interior charms with textural contrast in an ever so subtle fashion without ever disturbing the monochromatic color scheme.
A sensible transformation of an old structure into modern dwelling saves time and resources. It is this adaptive reuse of buildings that has seen the spurt of modern industrial style across the globe.
Every now and then it is a good idea to get away from it all and find a relaxing retreat where life crawls down to a more relaxing pace. Of course it is even better when such a place is right there in your very own backyard!
As is the case with most heritage homes it is the rear addition that comes to the rescue here extending the living area even while leaving the two bedrooms at the front of the house largely untouched.
