House renovation can be tricky sometimes. It means that not all fancy aesthetic interior design may fit all owner demands.
Take a look at Cecil st. House in South Melbourne that was designed by Chan Architecture, humble home decoration surprisingly is able to either solve the owner’s problem or bring identity and personality to the house.
Light up the room through open spaces
The owner of a single fronted, double story terrace house got the common problem related to the dark and decrepit rooms. To deal with the issue, home decorating begins with opening up between the kitchen/dining room and the living room helps to spare more spacious indoor vibrancy of these linear rooms.
The large opening at the side of the living room facing the courtyard lets the light flood the spaces. A series of skylights and light shafts help brighten the rooms.
The cabinets are attached nicely aside from the kitchen to the living room with the simple arrangement of other elements. The white as a dominant color of the interior and black as a highlight pump the spacious vibrance to the max. Adding pastel colors to several ornaments creates a cozy atmosphere. The use of wooden floors and furniture also affirms the relaxing feeling.
At the other side of the kitchen cabinet, there are open stairs that bring you to the second floor and the large roof deck at the third. This deck also endorses the spacious feeling from the inside the owners can enjoy. It also acts as a thermal chimney to support mechanical cooling.
Custom designed metal screening device for identity and personality
As a façade, a custom-designed metal screening device is installed at the rear part. The designs take a reference to the lacework of the front part of the house. It creates a special identity for the house as well as the owner’s personalization. Surprisingly, it creates a private sense for the bedroom on the second floor with interesting shadows.
