Spanish Art Deco House by Tom Bomford Architects

January 07, 2014 By: archinhome Category: Modern House Design

Description from Architects :
Here was an existing Spanish Art Deco house with a pitched tiled roof. It looked very tired indeed. The client liked the location and general internal feel of the house. It was very poorly equipped by modern standards. The developed brief called for a virtual rebuild. The temptation to build anew was rejected as this would have restricted the amount of accommodation we could provide under new-build DA conditions. The main design idea is the provision of a daring semi-circular extension to the East side, the full height of the house. The tiled roof was removed and replaced with a low pitch metal deck. Nautical and Asian elements are incorporated in the form of circular windows and internal moon door opening. Generally openings to the East have been enlarged to take advantage of water views. To the west a new Entry and Day Room take advantage of the front garden and afternoon winter sun.
Designed by Tom Bomford Architects.
