Step inside and the picture changes dramatically with marble finishes and custom millwork creating an air of opulence interlaced with tranquility. An open plan living on the lower level is connected with the spacious kitchen dining area and a sitting room / sunroom that flows into the courtyard outside.
Finding a secluded and relaxing oasis of green in the rush of an urban landscape is almost impossible at times. But turning an old discarded warehouse into a delightful modern home with its own little hub of green goodness the 10 Glasshouse Street Residence in Richmond is truly one of a kind.
Linking the living area kitchen and dining along with additional bedrooms on one side with the master suite deck and reading room on the other the glassy lounge provides the perfect transition zone between public and private spaces. Allowing the homeowners to enjoy the outdoors even on a hot summer day filtered sunlight and ever-changing shadows alter the visual appeal of the extension throughout the day.
The house seems to blend in with the greenery that surrounds it and the living area seamlessly flows into the yard outside. Midcentury décor and pops of red and orange accentuate the ‘classic’ nature of design with the bedroom wing exuding a cozier and less open vibe.
The transformation started with the revamping of the lower level to house an open plan living with a neutral color palette. With the clients wanting a relaxing beachside vibe inside the home white pops of blue and subtle coastal style accessories were carefully chosen to achieve the desired look.
