This carried out by Klopf Architecture is another wonderful example of homeowners and architects coming together to restore these masterpieces to their original beauty even while infusing contemporary charm.
Home renovations alterations and even the tiniest makeover can be quite expensive when not done right. This not only leads to a waste of energy and resources but could put you off from any future renovations as well.
As is the case with most modern renovations it is large sliding glass doors that get the job done with the new rear of the residence getting a large window with a distinct black frame. Despite this beautiful makeover not everything here is brand new with the exterior brick façade and striking features like the fireplace in the living room being preserved carefully.
The white plastered exterior not only allows the home to blend into the snowy slopes around it but also improves the insulation of the structure and ensures that the interior remains toasty warm during the frigid winter months.
The original barn-style roof structure was retained to preserve the traditional vibe while the interior is draped in light gray neutral hues and filled with comfy modern décor to present a contrasting picture. Even the ceiling with its cool white plaster and beeswax finish adds to the polished appeal while large windows bring the scenic outdoors inside.
A new louvre system also helps keep away harsh sunlight on hot summer days while the natural sea breeze cools the house and creates a pleasant atmosphere. Responding to the needs of the site and those of the homeowner this is a home alteration that is pleasing in more ways than one!
To ensure that privacy is not an issue it is the lower level that contains the bedrooms and other living quarters and even here one sees the presence of cleverly placed floor-to-ceiling glass windows to offer a glimpse of the world outside.
