Adaptive reuse and smart extensions have largely replaced home transformations that involve replacing existing structures with entirely new buildings. Apart from saving time energy and resources this also preserves a sense of history and nostalgia.
It is the ingenious convex curve of the roof along with the clerestory windows that instantly grab your attention as you enter the new rear extension that opens up towards the garden and the extended wooden deck.
Designed by IF_DO it is the pitched roof the new extension that gives it a touch of traditional charm even as beautiful use of skylights brings in a flood of natural light.

Unassuming Edison bulb lighting and smart shelving complete a Brazilian home where openness of design is coupled with controlled privacy and ample natural light to offer best of both worlds!
Replacing the old staircase with the new design not only enhanced the visual appeal of the home but also saved space by 20 percent giving the architects more room to work with. Replacing the old larger kitchen with an ergonomic cutting-edge kitchen that is much smaller also freed up space for the living room.
