This transformation ables to cater to the needs of a growing family in this house. The modern design is also added in a creative based on the request of the client.

Design

Above the new addition, an extensive roof light is installed while the rear wall a new window seat opens up with large sliding doors. The restricted space is also considered by the architect for allowing the kitchen island inclusion and leaving enough space for a dining table. The natural look of the woods materials and gold colors are combined to provide a balanced design.

Materials

The use of natural oak joists can support the robust polished concrete floor to form the window seat and support the roof-light. This way creates an aesthetic look that is also welcoming, practical, and also contemporary. The use of different materials and combining them with soft tones also add more elegant styles to this house such as the window that is raised with seat, exposed brick, polished concrete, and oak beams.
