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.
Bright pops of red yellow and purple enliven the home in the form of accent decor additions while a stylish stainless steel staircase with glass railing stands out visually along with a cool glass walkway!
The main living space is the soul of the new house and has a seamless connectivity with the outdoor garden and deck area thanks to the sliding glass doors. Containing the kitchen dining area and the living areas a neutral color scheme combined with the wonderful use of wood panels on the accent wall gives the residence a refreshing modern look.
On the inside the luxurious residence brings together wood stone concrete and glass to shape a spectacular retreat where form meets function. The decor is kept to a bare minimum with iconic pieces such as the Eames Elliptical Table and the Womb Chair taking center stage.
When architects and designers take their cues from nature the resultant house is often both unique and inviting in its ambiance. Combining natural goodness with contemporary brilliance in a stunning fashion is the in by ONG&ONG Pte Ltd which exudes an airy and brilliant appeal.
To minimize the impact of the building to the site — it’s a hybrid structure made entirely of wood with some steel and very little concrete — the architects also ensured that the house is completely off the grid. Which is why independent sources of heat and electricity were added.
