The residence which was originally a three storey colonial house is located in Belmont, USA. This modern residence is a result of a renovation that blends old building construction with a more contemporary new building construction. The blend of classic and modern architecture applied to this house blends well and gives a positive energy.
The construction of this house was carried out by Charles Rose Architects using materials such as rosewood, bamboo, stainless steel, mahogany, cedar, copper, and flagstone. To unite the old and new building structures, Architects use the transition mode. On the outside, the old panels are replaced with single sheets of glass. While on the inside of the house is placed a three-story atrium with six large skylights where the architecture of the old and new buildings meets.
The first floor of the residence includes the living room, dining room, kitchen, and master bedroom. While the second floor there is home office. The living room consists of a comfortable white sofa and a bluestone fireplace with a glass wall that extends to the kitchen. The architect applies the open plan concept in this dwelling to provide natural light and fresh air to the residents.
