Building a house in the suburbs of a busy city like comes with a variety of challenges and the task becomes even trickier when one has to work with limited space. The fascinating by Andrew Burges Architects is nestled on a thin long plot that is flanked by several other houses and a busy street.
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.
Bringing an unexpected and bright twist to the living room are the silver sofas and chairs that seem to fill the room with metallic radiance. The presence of yellow and orange throughout the house adds cheerfulness to the setting and gives it a casual yet beautiful ambiance.
The top floor contains the master bedroom and luxurious bathroom along with an expansive walk-in closet. Embracing a neutral color scheme all three levels seem like a natural extension of one another even as pops of bright color are kept to a bare minimum.
Sustainable design and green home architecture are much more than a mere compilation of the latest smart home technology that saves up on energy. Design planning and the overall silhouette of the house also play a pivotal role in shaping the power and resource consumption of the structure.
And did I mention one of the most intriguing aspects of the house? I could see myself enjoying a good book by the fire while the wind and rain storm outside. Or maybe I’m daydreaming again.
Inside the house sliding doors shape a dynamic environment where the public spaces can be transformed into private nooks with ease. A gorgeous home office and library on the ground floor is flanked by a beautiful kitchen dining space and a simple living area. Bedrooms and bathrooms are located on both levels of the house while minimal decor gives the interior an airy and spacious appeal.
