Contrasting Conversion: This classical house has a two-toned re-vamp

Contrasting Conversion: This classical house has a two-toned re-vamp

9 February, 2014  |  Exterior, House Interior

The outskirts of Brussels is home to this wonderful classical styled house that boasts a modern and contemporary extension. The architects at company dmvA were commissioned to make a modern home of this classically constructed house. First they started by adding two unusually shaped additions to the building, with slanted roofs and outward opening walls, and then painted the whole building in an ultra sleek white. The patio was added and also painted white to give a seamless finish from the floor to the walls and the pool was completely renovated to help finish off the garden. The interior is a stark contrast from the exterior with dark walls and furnishings; it is like entering into a different world. Although black is usually a colour avoided on ceilings, the openness of the exterior actually helps to lift the interior and make it seem spacious in size.
