As we flip through the many modern renovations that we have featured in the last few years there is one dominant theme that you simply cannot miss. Most of these resourceful and smart makeovers rely on glass and metal rear structures to extend the living area even as the street façade is left untouched.
The blends in with the craftsmen homes that surround it even while offering you a taste of the modernity it houses within. The lovely gray exterior of the home makes for a pleasant visual with the lower level of the main structure containing the living room kitchen and dining space.
Having started as a simple refurbishment of the lower level living area the project became a full-fledged overhaul when the architects realized that the fundamental structure of the house was unsound. The new living area contains the kitchen sitting zone and dining area on the lower level of the residence that opens up towards the rear patio.
One can instantly notice diverse textures and the exquisite beauty they bring inside the home as each room offers something unique and exceptional. It is the lower level that houses the living spaces along with a fabulous kitchen where the long custom island steals the spotlight a beautiful dining room a home bar and powder room.
The theme of dark metallic surfaces continues on the penthouse level as well with a hand-drilled operable steel screen serving as an awning that filters in just the right amount of sunlight on hot summer days.
