Cozy creative and contemporary this Norwegian home adapts a style that preserves and enhances Scandinavian design without sacrificing modernity and functionality.
The house in its basic form is an amalgamation of two different structures – an ‘I’ shaped building that holds the private rooms along with additional bedrooms and an ‘L’ shaped structure that hosts the public areas.
The existing house was more than 100 years old and that meant that much of the revamp needed to happen in the rear living the street facade largely untouched. Then there are the constraints of space with most of these Aussie homes having a long narrow silhouette.
Bright metallics and marble come in as bold accents throughout the house while a double-height living area full of natural light neutral color palette and stylish modern décor keep the atmosphere relaxed and informal. Passive thermal cooling techniques a roof garden and subterranean tank add a green tinge to this classy concrete residence.
Designed by PDP London Architect the projects consists of a series of 28 independent homes and villas that form a secure and beautiful little community surrounded by panoramic landscape.
Finding old homes in and around the city of Melbourne that are in need of quick and nifty makeover is nothing new. This semi-detached and single-fronted in Australia found itself in a similar predicament before its homeowners turned to Chan Architecture for a modern and energizing facelift.
It is a wonderful blend of serenity seclusion and harmony with nature and the presence of the next to the stoic concrete walls in black provide even more visual and textural contrast. With a view of the ocean in the distance and a solar-powered interior this green home feels both exquisite and eco-friendly.
A modern home with Scandinavian style and a dark exterior that helps keep the interior warm in chilly winter months; in Oslo maximizes space in its own unique way.
