George and his family decided to give their 40 year old house a modern makeover when it became difficult to cope with the space constraints and lack of facilities. It was a single storey house that had three bedrooms. However, the rooms were smaller and congested. The family wanted the renovated structure to overcome all these shortcomings.
The newly added brick cladding on the exteriors add a chic look to the house. Meanwhile, a tiled paved GI truss roof too has been installed. This helps in regulating the temperature in the upper storey. Toughened glass ceiling on metal frame is an interesting feature here. The car porch has been designed in the extended style.
Designed in 2750 sqft, this amazing abode has a car porch, sit out, living and dining areas, courtyard, and kitchen with work area, four bedrooms, upper living area and a balcony as well. The interiors are redecorated in the open style by dismantling redundant walls. A vast and spacious open hall that has living and dining areas and a courtyard has been arranged by knocking down a wall in the old living area. The interior spaces, meanwhile, are furnished minimally and hence look elegant. The warm toned lights fill the interiors with pleasant ambience.
Rooms and spaces are newly added in the upper floor. So, a new stairway too has been built to connect both the floors. Interestingly, the stair area has been arranged as a double heighted courtyard area. The skylight here welcomes lots of amazing sunshine into the house. The floor of the courtyard is paved with synthetic grass. Meanwhile, a wash area too has been arranged here to save space. The stairway, designed in steel and wooden finish, has classic glass hand railings.
The old kitchen and the adjacent work area have been given a spectacular facelift. Now, the modular kitchen has lots of storage spaces as well. A living area, one bedroom, balcony and a terrace have been newly added in the upper storey.
The guests who have seen the old house are pleasantly surprised by its splendid makeover and the modern amenities as well.
