Designed by Paul de Ruiter Architects the creative private residence is crafted in just glass steel and concrete and the focus here is firmly on the view outside rather than the décor indoors.
The new kitchen is also draped in white with polished concrete surfaces and a smart breakfast table that can easily slide under the central island breaking a sense of visual monotony. Efficient elegant and exquisite this smart makeover is everything the homeowners longed for!
Some of us find our dream home in the small urban apartment that serves as a simple escape and a place to rest and relax in between all the hard work and partying. Others might prefer a magical escape that is nestled in the heart of unadulterated natural beauty and then there are those who are willing to take up the challenge of renovating an old discarded structure into a new house.
Creating an open living space connected with the garden was one of the key requirements of the clients and by using sliding glass doors this is accomplished with effortless ease. The high ceiling and an internal courtyard provide this space with ample natural light and pops of bright color and the garden landscape gives it a vibrant and cheerful appeal.
Transforming the old mezzanine level into the new kitchen was accomplished by incorporating a stunning natural stone kitchen island cabinets draped in oak veneer and stainless steel worktops that complement the existing farmhouse-style stove perfectly.
It is this outdoor area that is used as an extended living space as it blurs the line between the interior and the world outside. A long and private entry surrounded by trees and plants leads to the lower-level living area that houses an open plan living room along with other public spaces.
It is vertical Kayu Batu siding and white plastered balconies that refresh the façade of the house and give it a smart yet distinct new look. On the inside a white backdrop coupled with lovely mahogany surfaces ensures that the interior is both minimal and inviting.
