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.
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.
Apart from the central gourmet kitchen and the serene water feature outside it is the 5-star master suite that really steals the show with its amazing oriental style luxurious four-poster bed and a bath that evokes the memories of a soothing spa.
