Every home has a certain distinct architectural feature or design quirk that makes it special and ensures that it stands out from the crowd. There are times when it is the facade that does the trick and then there are other occasions when it is something on the inside that grabs your attention.
Then you also have the charm of a revitalized interior that is filled with a flood of natural light. The gorgeous is another perfect case in the point as a glazed contemporary rear extension completely alters this classic British home. The task of giving this dreary residence a new lease of life fell upon UVArchitects who added the rear extension as a transition zone between the existing home and the small rear garden.
There is no shortage of natural light here and once the sun sets a series of recessed lights and gorgeous pendant take over. It is the top level that holds the bedrooms and bathrooms with many of these offering unabated views of the rear yard and the landscape beyond.
The street façade of this polished contemporary home sets itself apart from others thanks to a gorgeous brick wall and design that seems to combine contrasting textures with ease. It is this bold and yet seamless blend of different elements that resonates throughout the house making it both inviting and inimitable.
If there is one design and decorating trend that seems to be catching on fast and only growing with each day then it is the expansive use of wood in homes and offices. The polished plastic surfaces of the 90’s seem to firmly be on the out as homeowners long for a sense of serenity and coziness.
The multi-level house features an open plan living on the lower level with private spaces and bedrooms above. It is brick on the outside and wood on the inside that gives the home its unique look and create a blend of both stylish panache and a sense of warmth.
Feldman Architecture ensured that the design of the home was as simple and uncomplicated as possible with a ‘shed-style’ space creating an inviting and open living area. Large glass and operable doors constantly connect this unassuming interior with the world outside.
