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.
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.
There is also a pool table that should keep you busy at late night as you gulp down pint after pint of Guinness and there is never a dull moment for the privileged few who get to spend their time inside this famous Dublin loft.
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.
On the outside the pool house complements the contemporary and simple design of the pool while on the inside one can find the kitchenette daybed bathroom and a relaxing social zone in a small and space-conscious area.
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!
It is not very often that you see homeowners get involved in the nitty-gritty aspects of home architecture and design. There are fewer occasions when their hobbies and existing collection of art work or eccentric decorative pieces determines the form of the home.
A lovely little dining area sits outside next to the pool and a beautiful wooden pergola draped in greenery offers the necessary shade. In fact the green landscape around the pool house adds another layer of intrigue to the dashing pool house.
