Designed by Matt Fajkus Architecture the home office addition to this Texas home takes the latter path with a brand new studio that is connected with the backyard and adds to the appeal of the existing residence.
But you do need the right dwelling for such an experience and designed by Ark-Shelter the offers this experience to the hilt. Created by these eco-friendly cabin units running on sustainable energy can take you away from the usual getaway spots and turn pretty much any lot into a tranquil and comfortable home away from home!
Exquisite use of gray stone in the bathroom along with ample natural light and a white and wood color scheme in kitchen and dining put the final touches of sophistication on this fabulous transformation. Cheerful and inviting this once aging structure is again a delightful family residence!
Living off-grid can be well and truly liberating. If you are surrounded by constant rush of a big city the unending array of lights and sounds and a sea of humanity then getting away from it all does put your mind at ease.
It is the view outside that holds your attention and the small bedroom with a smart little workspace and modest balcony help you relax and rejuvenate. It is easy to forget about daily life and its many worries as you step into this expansive estate and this modern cabin makes the experience even more memorable!
Dubbed the Creekbluff Studio the smart addition extends the square footage of the house and also acts as a guest space and fun recreational zone when needed. But on the weekdays it is a dedicated office with enough room for 5 people to comfortably work within its confines.
The transition between the old and new is further aided by the use of a simple neutral color palette while the metallic beams in black and the large glass doors and floor-to-ceiling windows usher in some much needed contrast. Looking beyond the open living area kitchen and dining the front restoration and the smart bedrooms undoubtedly steal the show.
Locally sourced hardwood is used throughout the house and this not only made the project a lot more sustainable but also cut down dramatically on the building time and costs. The interior is simple and elegant with distractions if modern life being kept away.
