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.
While the classic brick exterior of this once-thriving warehouse had to be left almost completely untouched the interiors were completely overhauled to accommodate two individual residences with separate entrances – a design that perfectly meets the needs of an extended modern family.
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.
The grasscloth-covered walls in the bedroom also seem to be inspired by colors in the garden even as a beautiful rug with a vintage vibe gives the room a relaxing stylish feel. It is easy to fall in love with this California home that paints a pleasant and inviting picture while cleverly integrating the hues and aura that its owners longed for.
A healthy dose of greenery on the lower level creates a fabulous fusion between the interior and the poolscape and backyard beyond the sliding glass doors. The two lower levels of the home contain the public spaces and guest room while the top floor house the master suite and additional bedrooms.
The second edifice is the main house that contains the open plan space with the living kitchen and dining areas on the lower level and the private zones on the top floor while the third building houses the laundry and home studio. This not only gives a clear delineation of functionality for each structure but also allows the architects to make the most of the available space outdoors.
Prefabricated homes make life a lot easier for those looking to keep construction costs down even while ensuring that much of the work is done offsite. But another advantage of prefab homes is the speed that they bring to the development of a new residence; something that simply cannot be matched by on-site designs.
