Working with the existing structure and repurposing many of the materials discarded during the renovation the home takes a smart turn toward green design. The brick exposed concrete and rusted steel exterior of the house not only gives it a sense of uniqueness but also lets it blend effortlessly with the lovely landscape all around it.
The homeowners wanted a low-maintenance residence that aged gracefully and had minimal impact on the natural canopy outside. All the stone used for the renovated home came from the existing site while the precast concrete fence panels of the old house were used as stepping stones in the lawn.
Designed by A Parallel Architecture the house features glass walls that create a wonderful indoor-outdoor interplay and extend the living area beyond the normal confines of the home. Giving unabated panoramic views of the distant landscape the second level of the home contains an expansive master suite a stunning bathroom and a rooftop deck with a fireplace and comfy lounge. Opening up to the private courtyard in the rear both levels of the house enjoy seamless connectivity with the outdoors.
The house itself is comprised of three one-story wedge-shaped concrete volumes that serve as the carport living area and the private sleeping quarters. Spread across the main floor of the living volume contains the studio family room kitchen dining room living space home office and master suite while an additional level below it features the guest rooms and a home gym.
One of the hot design and architectural trends that we adore is the growing turn towards restoration and renovation projects. Sustainable in their outlook and efficient in the execution the many renovation projects of Turett Collaborative Architects epitomize this growing popularity of adaptive reuse of both materials and structures.
