We have often talked about how the topography of a site and its unique features are becoming an integral part of contemporary homes and this audacious house located within an abandoned quarry is another amazing case in point! Located on the edge of Wales this spectacular home was designed by Hyde + Hyde Architects to meet the needs of a photographer.
Renovating an old dreary home into a beautiful modern residence can be a demanding task at the best of times. In fact many of us find a small kitchen renovation or a bedroom makeover to be a task too cumbersome to undertake and therefore put if off infinitely!
An elevated platform ensures that the view of the lake outside is visible from almost every corner of the living area and dining room. The double-height dining space looks even more spectacular thanks to the dazzling chandelier above that steals the show! The balanced use of Italian parquet rosewood and glass gives the home a refined appeal.
The stone fireplace becomes the focal point of the indoor living space with an ergonomic L-shaped kitchen and large dining space completing the ground level. The top floor features the private quarters with a fabulous master suite an additional bedroom and bath and a third bedroom that features a wall of bunk beds! A seamless connection with nature a snug ambiance and modern rustic style define the charismatic.
A beautifully curated garden leads the way to the grand private entrance of the house. Architects used a mix of Brazilian Ipe wood and glass to shape the exterior of the residence while aluminum louvers were used to keep out the harsh Miami sun.
