Solaina DENIS. Home Design. December 27th , 2016.
An old house does not necessarily to be demolished; instead, it can be turned into a pretty renovated house just as the Casa Westway in McAllen, Texas. This house was originally built in late 50’s. The challenge to renovate it has been accepted by the LRSTUDIO which has also managed to create a modern design inside an old style house. The major change lies on the house’s roof as it is turned from the pitched roof into a facade one.
The renovated house exterior adopts simplicity in both architecture and design. The exterior wall in the front side of the house uses the combination of wood panel and timber slats, each having different color from one another. At the backside of the house, the house employs large glass windows and door which enable the residents to have a widened sight in the living room.
Let’s see the living room’s interior design. This room employs an L-shaped sofa and two additional chairs surrounding an artistic coffee table. This part of the room is enlightened by a floor lamp directed above the sofa. At the left hand side, we can find a kitchen which is dominated by wooden counter and cabinets, as enlightened by three hanging lamps above the kitchen bar. The dining chair is placed at the back of the living room’s chair, as dominated by one dining table and surrounded by several designers’ chairs.
This house does not use much decoration, as it will take much space. The designer plays with the power of lighting. In the living room for example, an additional ceiling-mounted lamps are used in each of the edges. Additionally, a paper lamp is hung above the dining table in order to create the sense of simplicity. The house’s timber slats are enlightened by floor lamp which gives pretty impression at night. This renovated house design may become your inspiration in turning your old house into a new one.
