The beauty of an off-the-grid cottage lies in the way they appear to have always been a part of the scenery they are set in as if they grew into it organically. We can attribute this to the exceptional rustic exterior that makes the best of old wood and shabby presence.
A multi-level arrangement of the rooms ensures that each space flows into the next as the living area exudes a cheerful bright and contemporary vibe. Natural light permeates through to the lowest level of the house thanks to this spatial arrangement even as the stairwell with skylight above adds to this illuminated brilliance.
The bunker is not the only upgrade that the Brighton Residence acquired with a new outdoor living area being added next to the living space inside. Extending into the backyard and pool area the new extension houses a portable lounge TV fireplace and even barbecue zone. A timber landing connects the spa and lap pool with the rest of the setting and the entire backyard seems like a world in itself – an ideal retreat for a stylish staycation!
Both the ease in design and assemble mean minimal on-site construction making prefabs such as these absolutely perfect for eco-sensitive setting where the existing flora and fauna need to be left as undisturbed as possible.
A fold of natural light illuminates the modern kitchen and dining with the outdoors becoming a part of the interior. Space-conscious home workstations and unassuming minimal décor enhance the ‘modernist’ appeal of a house that has shed its classic cloak.
A tall wood cabin is a delightful sight to see in a peaceful setting surrounded by greenery. The polished wood in a light shade feels traditional and familiar bringing the focus to the balcony that is the greatest observation spot of the entire residence. A simplistic cottage has a distinct character that feels very kind and welcoming. The rustic exterior gives it a timeless look brought to life by the striped design and the classic positioning of the windows and the door!
The idea of giving old homes a new lease of life with a modern revamp instead of opting for a completely new structure makes plenty of fiscal sense even while saving both valuable time and resources. This is precisely why homeowners in the last decade are increasingly opting for rear additions and smart makeovers to give their aged residences a new lease of life.
