It was just a few days ago that we were talking about the possible revival of Tudor style and how modern designers are giving these classic homes a contemporary makeover without actually altering their distinct silhouettes. Today we have another beauty that perfectly exemplifies this seamless blend between old world charm and modern aesthetics.
The trend of turning the home into a relaxing retreat that gives you a refuge from the busy hustle and bustle of urban life is one that is on the rise. Located in a beautiful neighborhood and blessed with ample space this luxurious combines modern aesthetics with tranquil inviting ambiance.
Transforming the interior of this residence into a welcoming modern hub DeForest Architects turned to steel framed glass windows and walls for the makeover. With the homeowners being booklovers the theme of choice was both simple and unique.
This continuous stone wall starts right at the entry and extends all the way to the shower area in the master suite! Visually connecting one area of the home with the rest it gives the interior an additional texture as it keeps away the street noise.
Instead of excavating the plot to do away with this gradient architects from Hilberink Bosch used this unique feature to give the lavish residence an air of exclusivity! Surrounded by a dense forest the home benefits from plenty of natural cover that provides the residents with ample privacy.
