Infusing an already inviting yet outdated and dark house on a farm with modernity and a cheerful bliss is what Juma Architects did with the gorgeous . The beautiful Belgian home was transformed into its current form by opening up its crowded interior and connecting with the beautiful landscape outside.
One of the many highlights inside this renovated home is the modern kitchen with its lovely wooden cabinets that anchor the space even as a remarkable backsplash steals the spotlight. Call it eclectic transitional modern or San Francisco-Chic; Cumberland Street Residence has an undeniable style of its own!
A sculptural staircase connects the three floors with the kitchen dining area and living space being housed on the ground level and a gorgeous study and wraparound terrace on the third floor.
The spectacular pool intersects with the house and stretches into the living area with a wonderful U-shaped deck offering plenty of space for outdoor parties and a relaxing sojourn.
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.
The open living area is filled with bespoke décor from Vladimir Kagan that seems playful while blending in with the overall theme of the penthouse. Colorful area rugs are another distinct feature that creates a common design thread between various rooms of the home even as the four original Andy Warhol skull prints set the tone for the dining area.
Designed by InForm the bedrooms sit on the top level at the front and take in the park views even as the open living area and the rear garden act as the breezy family zone. The focus at this contemporary Aussie home is definitely outdoor living and the way it interacts with the open living space indoors.
