Originally a single-story modern home built in 1959, this contemporary home was remodeled to include a second-story addition. Stone, taupe synthetic wood siding and stucco were used for the home exterior, while a deck and luxurious pool area were added to create a stunning backyard area.
The designers installed a commercial garage door, metal siding and all new exterior lighting on this modern home addition. The structure features a shed roof and sleek, narrow profile that's suited to its narrow lot.
After: An Atlanta home has been expanded and transformed with a new shake roof, new paint on the brick, new shutters and a more spacious front porch. To get a fresh start on the lawn, they removed some of the existing landscaping.
A large architectural doghouse that mimics the look, feel and color palette of the house off the pool area adjacent to the lanai is one of the special features that gives this relaxed, comfortable and elegant home personality.
Previously, the owners of this elegant home had a 4,000 square foot house with four bedrooms with two separate single car garages. However, when they bought the lot adjacent to their home, they wanted to expand with a complementary space that included a new, two car garage, an indoor/outdoor cabana with full kitchen and bar, a mother-in-law suite, an elevator, a wine room, an exterior fireplace, a large patio and a unique pool.
Wanting to add a two-story pool house, carriage house and an all-white garden to their lot, the owners of this charming Colonial turned to Deborah Cerbone Associates for help. Using gates, fences, fountains, flowers and more, the landscape architects created their dream outdoor space.
This home renovation included the addition of am enclosed sunroom with large glass windows that show off the home's stunning interior spaces. A small outdoor deck features a wooden table and chairs set that provides the perfect spot for casual dining.
This living room space was an addition to the home's original structure, and, as such, had very strange angles that designers wanted to make sense of, so they chose furniture that would help them create an organized normal room shape with a modern farmhouse design that complements the rest of the home's open concept main spaces.
By stripping the farmhouse's additions back to their frames, the architects were able to remove all extraneous decorative elements. In turn, the two gabled forms now read more forcefully and without distraction, which better complements the home's original architecture.
A set of travertine stairs leads to the living room, which serves as the social hub of the home. Though small, there are two sconces on either side of the sliding glass doors to provide a guiding light at night.
In the living room, a rich, traditional wood Spanish door separates the modern addition from the original part of the home. This, along with Spanish artwork and other wood details helps to tie the new part of the home together with the original home. To create a modern addition, designers used bold colors and patterns to reflect the natural colors of the backyard, to which the living room has direct access.
This welcoming two-story home features a contemporary addition with two styles of retaining walls – bluestone and ashlar granite – separating the house from the driveway and defining the borders of the property.
