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 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.
A neutral color scheme and fashionable pendant lights ensure that the Y House still remains largely modern while it is the cool outdoor dining area pool deck and covered pavilion that usher in a more relaxing and authentic local flavor.
The design of the kid’s bedroom the study and the garden terrace / play area ensures that the parents can always keep an eye on their little one while this step-wise arrangement of levels also saves precious space!
Instead of encroaching on an already limited backyard Thomas Balaban Architecte decided to give the modest home two rooftop volumes turning it into an elegant and spacious contemporary residence. Home to a young couple with three children the smart extension preserved and enhanced the small rear yard turning it into play area for kids and a relaxation zone for adults.
