This fabulous and fashionable penthouse in Belgium is a more appropriate representative of the modern eclectic style that brings together various styles in a refined and refreshing fashion without leading to clutter. Located on the top level of a three-story building this fabulous home was previously a vacant office space that was revamped and transformed dramatically by DIFT.
Replacing the traditional view of the landscape outside the lowered rooftop garden becomes an integral part of the open plan living space on the second level of the house. This also allows the homeowners to keep an eye on the little ones as they spend time on the rooftop terrace even while letting in a healthy dose of natural light.
Even the entry captures the uniqueness of the home with a loggia that offers a view of the garden even as it leads you into the living room. A neutral color palette warm wooden tones and a smart lap pool add to the air of comfort and relaxation indoors even as the homeowners take in the sights and sounds outside!
The narrow form of townhouses means one needs to carefully utilize the available space with a smart floor plan without compromising on either aesthetics or ventilation. Nestled in a quiet neighborhood of Elwood a beachside suburb of this beautiful contemporary townhouse manages to find that perfect and elusive balance between form and function.
There were times when homeowners and builders simply bulldozed everything in the way in an effort to build the perfect home. But all that has changed dramatically in the last decade with eco-friendly home design and sustainable architecture finding new ways to craft homes that interact with the surroundings in a positive and planet-friendly manner.
