It’s a new year and we have a line-up of completed projects which we are excited to show you. This issue we take a look at one of our completed projects. Six months since handover, we have returned to see how this approximately 3,800 sq.ft. built-up house has turned into a lifestyle home.
Sitting on a 1950 sq.ft. plot of land, this semi-detached property went through a reconstruction home journey to fit its four-person family. Opting for a black and white colonial charm, the home works in aesthetic paint and window features with the more modern nature of its three and a half storey profile.
Elongated ebony toned window profiles with lattice accents in French style brings that right balance of modernity and authentic old world appeal especially when opting for a theme such as colonial.
As the family consists of young children, the regulatory side setbacks have become a roomy outdoor play area for them whilst staying safe within the confines of the home.
The beauty of this home comes especially from the radiance of natural sunlight gleaming throughout. Photographing most of the home without flash was ideal.
The stairwell with its openness and high ceiling brilliantly doubles up as a light well. Very much the feature of this home.
A space planning tip that saves on the need for additional bathrooms is opting for a Jack and Jill bathroom. Two bedrooms sharing one bathroom especially for children makes it a practical option. Furthermore, having two entrances to a bathroom may be a safety feature to have especially with little ones.
The third level is space-planned to be interconnected while remaining separate. Exclusive to the master occupants, the third floor consists of the master bedroom, bathroom and den. Within the master bedroom there is not a television in sight, instead the bed faces a balcony. Balconies are such an understated feature but such a beautiful addition from both an exterior and interior perspective. Overlooking the view of a balcony space is a beautiful way to start the day.
The spacious bathroom minimalist yet chic trends on the black and white palette. Subway tiles have become a popular selection with many homeowners and it is hard to disagree.
An interesting feature within the bathroom comes from the discreet doorway adjoining to the den through clever carpentry.
The top floor makes way for the attic, a spacious room with potential to be converted into a functional space. Well ventilated, the attic is designed to allow hot air to escape with ease.
There is more to building a home than meets the eye. Understanding the nature of its inhabitants is a useful cue when embarking on proper space planning. Function with aesthetic are the key cornerstones of a Nic & Wes home.
