We absolutely love contemporary renovation and restoration projects that focus on adaptive reuse of the existing structure and materials. Located on an old Spanish farm in the sleepy scenic village of in the this lovely home transformation is all about a balanced and organic blend of modern comfort with old world charm.
While the backyard is a showstopper with its large pool an expansive deck area and a private glass pavilion complete with a Jacuzzi it is the transition of this space leading into the interior that truly deserves a mention. Sliding glass walls separate the outdoor dining area and kitchen from the pool deck even as they form the link between the interior and the pool area.
While the initial proposal was to chop off the beautiful old trees to create a more spacious and centrally placed residence the homeowners thought otherwise. In came Prentiss Architects who designed a home that preserved the existing greenery while delivering a comfy elegant living space.
Adaptive reuse is an architectural and design concept that is quickly gaining ground globally and many of the rustic old barns are being converted into wonderful modern homes. Located in the quiet little Dutch town of House G fits this billing perfectly.
The north end of the rooftop offers a place to relax under the stars even in the colder months thanks to a built-in fireplace. And if a roaring fire is not enough to keep warm the steamy hot tub should do the trick.
