Designed by Vasco Lope Asrquitetura is a single level urban residence that was in need of a light-filled makeover. Replacing the old yard with a curated modern outdoor space and connecting it with the indoors designers gave this modest house a completely new look.
As is the case with most aged homes poorly planned additions and a weary structure tend to create an interior that is neither practical nor aesthetic. The in is no different as it was originally built in 1970’s with an interior that is far too compartmentalized and constraining.
Sunlight and an undisturbed flow between the different rooms of the house was one of the main factors that defined the new interior. With bedrooms on the top level completely sheltered from the active life on lower level the house combines two contrasting aspects with great balance and fluidity.
A single-level Californian Bungalow in the was given a modern and breezy makeover by Davidov Partners Architects even while ensuring that the existing structure was altered in the most minimal way possible.
It is the first floor that house sthe bedrooms bathrooms and other private areas with the garden level and the ground level containing multiple living spaces kitchen kitchenette dining area and other public zones.
It is the foundation of the building the wooden platform it sits on and the angled pitched roof that shape its outline while cedar wood and glass fashion its exterior. A touch of blue brings modernity to the cabin while an open plan interior is connected with the deck outside using folding doors.
