Connecting the interior with the garden or the landscape outside is increasingly becoming the main objective of home makeovers and this beautiful house on London does the same even while utilizing the available space to the hilt.
Refurbished by Scenario Architecture for a young family of three the interior of the house has been completely rearranged to create a more modern relaxing ambiance where each room flows into the next. It is the that was turned into the new kitchen and dining area with the step-wise arrangement of the living area delineating space without ever creating an obstruction for the flow of natural light.
Designed to meet the growing needs of a family with 2 children the extended and altered house now features 4 bedrooms 2 bathrooms a gorgeous study and of course an open plan living area on the lower level.
By altering the internal layout the new kitchen and dining area is connected with the small garden outside even as skylights and bespoke window features bring in ample sunlight.
Designing an urban home that moves away from the mundane and finds that ideal balance between modernity and proximity to nature is a hard task at the best of times. It definitely is far easier to accomplish in homes surrounded by a lush green landscape as the view outside provides the necessary green goodness.
It is the ground floor that houses the open plan living area along with a small dining space and a fabulous kitchen with a beautiful marble island. The use of diverse materials and finishes such as marble concrete timber and metal throughout the house ushers in some much needed visual and textural contrast in an otherwise monotonous space.
It is a contemporary home that is defined largely by the irregular lot that it sits in and the existing greenery that the homeowners and Tzannes Associates wished to preserve to the best possible extent. The result is a fascinating and exceptional home where the outdoors become a vital part of the interior!
