With white being the color of choice inside this Scandinavian-modern living space the light-filled setting seems even more cheerful and elegant. Smart contemporary décor is combined with timeless midcentury pieces like the Eames rocker to fashion a relaxed and breezy interior.
Working around both the historical and solar limitations of the site Nic Owen Architects revamped the interior of the home completely by altering its floor plan and also added a modern rear extension.
As is the case with most contemporary homes these days the living areas on the lower level and the bedrooms on top floor open up toward a large deck complete with a pool and an outdoor dining space. Glossy finishes in the kitchen and bathroom a plush Togo Sofa in the living room and a curated splash of color in the dining room complete a refined and relaxing residence.
While the name of the house might be a bit misleading (at this is definitely not a little home by any stretch of the imagination) it still is a makeover that makes clever use of every inch of square footage on offer.
Essentially this is a fusion of contrasting styles eras and architectural principles done in a flowing and seamless fashion. While the exterior of the original home is largely left untouched it is the interior that undergoes a complete makeover.
Bedrooms on the second floor a dining space and bathrooms receive a healthy dose of natural light thanks to the presence of skylights even as a neutral color scheme modern décor (with a few midcentury classics thrown in) and beautiful wooden cabinets ensure that you never feel cluttered inside this residence. For a Victorian home that sits on a lot that is just it does feel like a masterful makeover!
But devoid of a gorgeous natural view and surrounded by the concrete jungle the in takes a completely different approach. Designed by Scenario Architecture it is a lowered and glazed section of the roof terrace and garden that does the trick here!
