Split across two distinct wings the design of this prefab clearly demarcates the public areas from the private ones with the kitchen living area and dining space on one level and the bedrooms and home studio on the other. Contemporary in its vibe and yet soothing this is a smart residence that forces many out there to change their perception towards prefab homes…
Each of three cottage-style structures of the home has its own purpose with the first one serving as a garage and workshop as it sits at the end of a winding driveway that leads you into the lot.
If you love the adaptive reuse of structures then you are bound to instantly fall in love with the Water Factory in Victoria. Revamped and refurbished by Andrew Simpson Architects this Aussie home showcases a wonderful fusion of heritage exterior and contemporary interior with each influencing the other in a remarkable fashion.
But the fabulous renovation goes well beyond the mere expansion of available interior space thanks to the eco-sensitive energy and utility systems which cut back on power consumption and make life here a lot more sustainable.
The one-of-a-kind home blends beautiful beach style with the form of a classic cottage and does it all without ever forgoing modern functionality and an air of luxury! Even its exterior presents a unique picture with three different structures clad in natural-edge weatherboards batten timber cladding and cool mud brick.
Gorgeously crafted garden stretches add to an already energetic living room that is filled with a bright blue couch orange and green chairs and a large sofa that provides ample sitting space. Even the open glass shelves in different colors accentuate this appeal of playful contemporary panache that is carried through into the dining space and the kitchen.
Since we are in Brazil there is absolutely no escaping the strong influence of ‘life on the beach’ with curated artwork and fascinating photo collages making their presence felt in the bedroom and dining area.
