A beautiful conversion and renovation project the in was transformed from a 1950s ranch-style bungalow into a gorgeous modern home with a distinct midcentury vibe. The makeover was completed by the ingenious folks at Neumann Mendro Andrulaitis Architects along with the help of of Allen and Associates and it combines the timeless elegance of the classical structure with contemporary comfort and ergonomics.
On the inside the expansive use of wood continues as the kitchen and dining space combine sleek contemporary surfaces with the fuzzy warmth of a more classical backdrop. Additions such as the black modular coffee table in the living room and the Caboche chandelier add sparkle and panache to the interior.
The idea of creating a seamless indoor-outdoor interplay that blurs the traditional borders is something that has really caught on in the last few years. Almost everyone wants a home where the living room kitchen and dining space connected in an open floor plan flow into the outdoor deck courtyard or the lush green backyard.
How many times have you shied away from using color in your modern living room because you felt that it would seem ungainly and a touch too gaudy? But this vibrant private residence designed by Suite Arquitetos will surely change your view on color in a contemporary home as it embraces pops of blue orange red yellow and even purple with a sense of glee.
Bringing together the past and the present in a wonderful alchemy of styles and eras seems to be the favored path in the case of most home renovations in recent times. The idea of adaptive reuse of an existing structure instead of completely dismantling it and starting afresh has caught on both because of its economic and aesthetic sense. Located in the suburb of just a few miles from the heart of this fabulous home epitomizes the approach of blending the modern with the classic.
The street façade of the large private residence still retains its original look and it is only on the inside that one uncovers a more contemporary backdrop. The lovely use of windows skylights and of course recessed and pendant lighting add to the glitter and warmth of the family house that seems like a relaxing holiday retreat.
In addition there are works by Kaare Klint Mogens Koch Mogens Lassen Fritz Henningsen and Ole Wancher among others. Adding to the home’s charm and appeal Knud Erik has also mixed in antiques alongside treasured mementoes that he collected during several years spent in South Africa and Asia.
