A warm outer cladding allows the home to blend in seamlessly with the natural tones outside. Large floor-to-ceiling glass windows offer unabated views of the world outside as you escape from a mundane life in the concrete jungle!
Since both the clients and the architects wanted to create a home that had greater visual connectivity with the outdoors large floor-to-ceiling glass windows were utilized in an expansive fashion. This not only created a more airy and open atmosphere but allowed for ample natural ventilation to drive out any remaining dark corners.
Giving a traditional home a contemporary overhaul is a task far more challenging than designing a brand new residence from scratch. The pre-imposed constraints often make the work of architects that much more difficult. Stephenson ISA Studio though has done a commendable job in turning an old and dull residence in Manchester UK into a fabulous modern home that exudes transparency and class. One of the major elements of design that altered the look of the existing structure was the extensive use of glass.
What do you do when you suddenly realize that your home doesn’t suit your needs and taste anymore? You start renovating! That’s exactly what a couple from Bellevue Washington decided to do with their home. But they didn’t settle with just any renovation. Together with Seattle-based they came up with a ground-up remodel that turned their residence into a real dream home.
Large overhangs are also in place to ensure there is sufficient protection on a really damp Seattle day. An open floor plan sees lines between the living area and the outdoors blurred even as an ergonomic kitchen and dining area anchor the lower level of the house.
Then again not only white spaces look good adorned with hot colors. When it comes to pure modern luxury nothing screams party like a black and glossy surface adorned with a splash of colorful art.
To achieve this glass has been employed extravagantly throughout the residence to create a seemingly transparent look. With beautiful lighting and floor-to-ceiling glass windows dominating the façade the home blends in beautifully with its green surroundings.
