The idea of renovating existing structures and combining old world charm with contemporary luxury and appeal is something that is quickly catching on across the globe. Located in an idyllic neighborhood of Kilham Winchester this beautiful house was a dull and boring old building until the creative folks from AR Design Studio decided to give it a grand new lease of life! Having undergone a fabulous renovation the is now a cozy five-bedroom family house with a double-height entrance and an interior that exudes elegance and inviting warmth.
A sculptural floating staircase leads to the top level that houses the serene bedrooms and the spa-like bathrooms. The basement of the house offers an additional living area complete with ab entertainment unit a personal wine cellar and a dedicated home gym.
While the focus at the 65BTP-House remains firmly outside the interior reflects the homeowner’s passion for nature and the effort of the architects to craft a residence that exudes this love. While the color scheme is kept largely neutral with white dominating the interior the addition of smart wooden surfaces brings warmth and textural contrast instantly. A stunning spiral staircase adds to the sculptural appeal of the decor even as a lovely living area kitchen entertainment hub and dining room complete the lower level of the residence.
Modern renovations and restoration projects often tend to infuse homes with a touch of sleek contemporary charm that balances the old world appeal ever so beautifully. But this gorgeous and private residence located in a secluded little niche of the adopts an entirely different approach. Transformed by architect and interior designer Inbar Menaged who described its appeal as a ‘little piece of haven’ this newly renovated residence brings together modern comfort and an unexpected dash of.
Step inside and one sees the addition of quirky patterns colorful shelves and dynamic wallpaper which give the home a cheerful inimitable style of its own! Spread across two luxurious levels the entrance of the contemporary home opens up into a simple atrium that organically leads into the living room.
The ‘view’ is the most important aspect of the house and shaped its contours as architects from Gavin Maddock Design Studio ensured that every room of the home enjoys unabated access to the sight of the sand and the surf that is just a stone’s throw away.
While the exterior of the house is draped in wood the interior has a more modern appeal with concrete and glass being used in a balanced fashion. Adjoining the living room on the lower level is a beautiful dining space that is illuminated by the iconic Caboche Chandelier and the Arco-style floor lamp in the living room adds to the elegance of the space. The living area is visually connected with the large deck outdoors while a modern kitchen gaming room and utility space are located on the opposite side of this floor.
