The second house of the younger brother has more or less the same floor plan but the dark industrial style of the residence provides a perfect retreat for this party-loving night club entrepreneur!
Chinese side tables wall art Buddha statues and a splash of green grace the living room while a monochromatic music lounge is a visual treat for those who adore all things white.
Originally built in the 1930s and extended in the 1970s in Australia was in urgent need of a modern revamp that facilitated the modern lifestyle of its young owners. Turning this mundane and poorly planned home into a breezy modern delight filled with ample natural lighting are the creative folks from Freedman White who redefined the floor plan to transform the house into a more kid-friendly setting.
The façade of the house is truly unique with a smart brick wall seamlessly blending in with its more contemporary surroundings. The thick brick wall was as much a functional addition as it was aesthetic with its presence keeping out harsh afternoon sunlight and excessive heat during those really hot summer days.
Another striking feature of the residence is the perforated metal screen that filters out harsh sunlight while illuminating both the levels of the home. Custom fixtures such as the loft bed in the kids’ room and the colorful fiberglass bathtub in the bathroom make cleaning and maintenance a lot easier and turn the revamped into a breezy delight!
While the public spaces seem far more transitional the bedroom and bathrooms completely embrace cool contemporary style with minimal décor and a white and gray color scheme. Beautiful blue accents a floating wooden vanity in the bathroom and a shower area with penny tiles add visual contrast even as cleverly placed artwork and wall murals in the kids’ room usher in a hint of bright color.
On the ground floor is a small reception along with a coffee area that allows you to welcome potential customers and clients and offers a wonderful hangout for everyone working in the two levels above. Small niches provide smart conversation nooks even as the beautiful blue walls and exposed concrete surfaces usher in a modern-industrial style.
