The new kitchen and bathroom sit as a transition between the living space and the main bedroom at the front and the dining space and additional bedroom in the rear of the house. Colorful mosaic tiles enliven the kitchen in white even as large original windows with double-glazed panels usher in plenty of light and give the interior freshness.
Much of the original home was poorly lit and filled with awkward spaces and unnecessary internal partitions that blocked any flow of natural light. One of the first things that the architects did was to completely re-imagine the interiors and create a new floor plan where the old living room and entrance were transformed into the main bedroom and the chamfered corners were utilized to the hilt. The new living space and entrance are connected with the re-envisioned bedroom using a painted sliding door that blends into the walls that surround it!
Much of this is achieved using a beautiful blend of stone and glass on the outside that marries two contrasting elements in a pleasing fashion. Designed by Vanguard Studio this Spanish Oaks home is as much about the outdoors as it is about the interior!
It is barely a surprise then that the spectacular in area of the Terrasses Cap à l’Aigle in Quebec Canada turns to a stunning overhang with glass walls to make the most of the scenic view on offer. Designed by ACDF Architecture this is a family retreat that combines traditional and modern architectural elements in sensational style.
Wood and stone were used in crafting the exterior of the home with the upper levels embracing the warmth of the former in an eloquent fashion. It is the ground floor that contains the main entrance along with the garage and a small social zone while the first floor houses the living room dining space kitchen guest bathroom and the family zone.
