One of the biggest challenges during the design of this multi-level house was both its unique orientation and the flood of sunlight that entered the house because of the giant glass wall that connects the living area with the pool outside.
The old laundry space evolved into the new open plan living area that is connected with the rumpus room dining area and of course the lovely yard. The new and the old combine here effortlessly with much of the original structure being preserved and given a modern sheen so that it blends in with the relaxing contemporary style.
It is the top two levels that house two small apartments which make the most of the available space on offer. The open plan living area of the apartment on the fourth floor flows into the bedroom with the headboard wall separating the two.
The two independent buildings are connected by a common patio and pool area and the living area of one is visually connected with the other using sliding glass doors. Even though both houses seem similar from the outside they present an entirely different look as you step indoors.
It is the glittering dining room that undoubtedly ends up being the showstopper of these transformed spaces with its silky chandelier vintage-inspired Orchidea cabinets and the silver and black Nanook Chairs from KOKET. But all these seem to only play second fiddle to the two diamond dust paintings of Marilyn Monroe and that should barely come as a surprise to anyone!
But the smart rear extension of the house offers much more than the 1.5-feet-deep . The sunken design of the living area also turns it into a lovely gathering space for friends and family and the open design of the new extension along with the corridor and kitchen ensure that there is a flood of filtered light indoors.
