The residents of had a similar desire to turn their old terrace house that is just five meters wide into a smart modern home filled with lovely little nooks terraces and an inviting outdoor lounge. Dan Gayfer Design accomplished this by completely renovating the house connecting the interior with the small private outdoor living area.
The wooden staircase acts as a spatial feature by separating the kids’ wing of the home from the adult bedroom on the top level while adding sculptural beauty to the open living area on the ground floor. The stairwell also brings natural light to the basement level and acts as a common connecting thread between the various floors.
With a rooftop terrace study home workspace and the master suite it is the top level that acts as the private hub of this altered Aussie residence. A neutral color scheme coupled with a generous presence of wood and a hint of color in the bathrooms create a relaxing contemporary setting where form and function are brought together with refined elegance.
Despite its contemporary appeal great care was taken during the construction of the house to ensure that it fit in with the landscape and its natural beauty. Elements such as natural stone and cement blocks only help in accentuating this connection between the modern and the traditional local architectural elements to offer the best of both worlds.
On the inside the living space is simple understated and allows the views outside to grab all the attention even as modern décor and wonderful lighting create an inviting ambiance. With the top level housing the bedrooms that also offer unobstructed views of the watery landscape life at this serene Dutch residence does seem like an absolute dream!
