Belgian studio Cocoon Architecten started from an existing farmhouse in Genk Belgium and constructed a modern oasis of comfort prepared to take on a new lifestyle. The Framework House now displays the existing building and an additional black volume facing the street.
The other side of the black wall facing the street is white and flooded with light from above where a long and narrow skylight ensures that natural light will flood the adjacent living space separated by a glass wall. Inside this ample space the living continues with a dining/cooking area. There is an expansive food preparation area that should provide enough room for any size feast.
A lovely home in the countryside – this was the dream of the Italian couple They always wanted to go back to the countryside where both of them grew up. Quite aware of how different childhood would be here as compared to urban areas they wanted to give their children the same exotic experience they had. The farmhouse has a truly elegant look to it.
Really large interiors that are luxuriously decorated welcome you inside. Apart from the one and only grand bedroom there is a large dining room as well as a gourmet kitchen. A full bath and 2 partial baths find their place inside as well.
Designed extravagantly by Studio Sagan Piechota Architecture the is a brilliant house located amidst the spectacular Carmel Mountains in California with stunning scenery and the majestic ocean forming its natural surroundings.
The couple admits that it had been a lot of work to renovate the whole structure which included even the shaping up of each and every single irregular stone. The home has four floors in total connected through an elevator accessed from an underground garage and wine cellar.
A stylish and compact little bookshelf was carved out on the wall adjacent to a stylish sleek and modern rectangular fireplace. The splashes of bright orange here and there on the unique stools and couch cushions along with the subtle use of orange in the patio furniture that is visually connected to the living space ensures that there is no sense of blandness in this modern makeover.
