Simplicity and efficiency are the key elements that define the new interior with every single detail ensuring that the living environment is vibrant and clutter-free. Smart spacious and dashing this makeover feels fresh and creative.
A second living area kitchen and bedrooms on the first floor can function as a home for the visiting grandchildren and can be accessed by both the staircase and an elevator.
Adaptive reuse of old structures does much more than utilize resources in a smart fashion. They create new styles and trends that come about due to a clever blend of contrasting themes.
Taking this sustainable movement a step further is the in – a project where Neumann Monson Architects completely transform an abandoned old home into a contemporary residence that is energy-neutral and full of green features. The makeover is truly inspiring with the new house generating enough power for all of the family needs and then some!
The new structure doubles the living area to 2500 square feet and also adds a basement which further serves the needs of the family that moved into Koser I. Fetaures like Foamed-in-place insulation and insulated sheathing and passive heating and cooling techniques cut back the home’s reliance on artificial sources while a 8.4kW photovoltaic panel unit and geothermal installation power the home completely.
The shared living area of the house has a neutral color palette with white and wood shaping the backdrop. The style in here feels like a combination of the minimal and the Scandinavian with a bright blue couch at the heart of it all.
It is a combination of wood and white that shapes much of the lower level of the house and the wood here is much more than an aesthetic addition. Wooden ceiling and other wall coverings inside the double height living area help reduce dispersion of noise even as the entire lower level with its own bedroom can act as an apartment on its own.
With the neutral hue of the décor it is the cleverly placed wooden accents and furniture pieces that shine through even as the multiple fireplaces throughout the house make their presence felt.
