When you think of mews or townhouses, one automatically imagines a long row of uniform buildings. From time to time, the classic design can look quite monotonous, and it is a known fact that inside they are not exactly the epitome of space, creativity and individuality. However, today you're going to see a very different townhouse which is totally the opposite to what was just described! Namely, an ultra-modern terraced house which is unique on all fronts, as the architecture of this house has been modernised in an incredible way. Both visually and in terms of energy, the concept of this home is a beautiful stranger in our midst. We can only hope that the rest of the houses in the street will follow suit, and consider making such a change. Curious? Come with us on a tour!
Even at first glance, you can see that this house does not fit with the neighbours on the left and right. The modernised townhouse has a modern, grey exterior instead of a traditional brick frontage. The large windows and contemporary form of the property are definitely unique! In a way, the house draws all the attention, yet your eye is forced to dart from side to side to understand the contrast.
Within the 275 square metres of space, the interior of the home is characterised by modern shapes and a contemporary atmosphere. We see a lot of white, warm wooden floorboards and a minimalist, yet homely open plan living room. There is definitely enough space in this home to cater for a growing family. Despite its seemingly sparse interior and layout, it is possible to enjoy wonderful intimate moments in this setting, thanks to the eco-friendly fireplace and clever division of space.
As we peek into the bedroom, we can see the same colour scheme is evidenced here too. This image reveals a wonderfully bright space that features a modern and minimalist atmosphere. The dark accessories provide a welcoming contrast, adding a touch of drama and elegance to the bedroom. This is space just one of the many jewels tucked away inside this home.
The bathroom reflects the modern style seen in the rest of the house. A dominance of pure white, high quality features and a simple layout creates a space that is easy for the occupant to navigate. With a his-and-hers sink combination, the owners need not worry about arguments over who is using the sink or mirror in the morning. Instead, the design facilitates a harmonious experience at any moment of the day. The heating and hot water functions are served by solar energy, meaning that this space is not only aesthetically pleasing, but environmentally friendly, too.
The garden, just like the house, is open plan and very modern. Here we see a set of large glass sliding doors which can be easily pulled back to let the outdoors flow inside. Because of this, the residents are able to enjoy their garden at any time of the year. Whether the snow falls, or the sun shines, the view can always be appreciated. The smooth transition between inside and out improves the quality of inner city life tremendously, and we have absolutely no doubt that the neighbours who occupy the existing terrace homes next door will be green with envy.
