Turning an old bungalow into a breezy modern home that showcases a lovely indoor-outdoor interplay foundry12 were the creative minds behind the transformation of this gorgeous traditional bungalow in Arizona. It is easy to see why the architects opted for a modern glass and metal extension to give the existing brick home a new and improved appeal.
The stylish addition at ushers in lovely textural contrast and contemporary charm even as its dark exterior seems to complement the red brick façade and the black roof to perfection! At its heart this is a beautiful blend of styles and eras.
The choice of the finishing material for the front-façade was determined largely by the aesthetics of the home its specific requirements and of course the tiny budget on which Mork Ulnes Architects had to pull off the impressive overhaul.
The second level hosts the kids’ playroom that would be transformed into a productive workspace with time and a mudroom that offers ample storage space. Kids’ bedrooms and additional utility areas occupy this floor while the third level contains the master suite home office and expansive breezy deck.
Thanks to the U-shaped structure of the residence the homeowners enjoy complete privacy as they spend time in the courtyard even as the street façade keeps away prying eyes. A separate living area for guests and the master suite are also integrated visually with the rear yard. Warm lighting adds another layer of intrigue to this California home that breaks away from the mundane.
