It is one thing to give an old home a new skin and ambiance with a quick renovation but transforming it into an energy-efficient modern home is a completely different proposition.
This gives the living space kitchen and the bathrooms plenty of character and a unique flair while keeping the color scheme strictly neutral. The use of large glass windows smart skylights and glass doors brings in plenty of natural light which flows from one room to the next. Midcentury décor additions are combined with modern counterparts to create a balance between styles and eras.
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.
Dubbed and nestled in the bustling city of the home has an undeniable Brazilian connection as an open and airy ambiance is coupled with warm wooden surfaces to showcase the inimitable design style that is native to the region.
The central garden of the house is its main social area and it’s flanked by the main living zone on one side and a home office and recreational wing on the other. Fold-away doors on both sides turn the living space into a passage between the front yard and the central garden!
