A DARK BUNGLOW TURNS INTO A MODERN HOME

Richard Deming her wife Martha bought an old bungalow in the suburb of Sydney. This part of the city was well populated and organized. People were cultured and know the current life style.

When they bought the house the property was not attractive and enable to live, because the interior of the house was dark and every thing seems to be narrow and suffocating, the bungalow was consist of four beds rooms, but the rest of the living area like living room, kitchen & bathroom were in such a manner that some one has shrunk them.

The couple knows very well, that if they wish to live in this bungalow with their three children, they have to make enough changes in it. They engaged an architect and tell him about their ambitions. Martha was willing that the house become airy, comfortable and enlighten.

When they concerned to the authorities they make a restriction that the bungalow should match with the other bungalows, their doors & windows could not be limited. Deming struck with this restriction, because he has a master plan and dreamed for wide room. Further more the authorities didn’t permitted them for two story properties. In this respect the height of the house raised a little bit to made a space for mezzanine floor. The bungalow work added an extra space of one thousand square feet to the back area of the property, producing a suitable space on the ground floor for two bath rooms, a dining room, a utility room & a wine caller.

The additional thing was a large but curved glass wall, which was going to allow the light to come in properly. Martha said that they also built panels into the mezzanine floor to give a chance the sum to come in the house.

Martha said that mezzanine was just like a hidden floor, but was providing a nice accommodation to the children the guests. It became an extra place for taking rest. We separated the sitting area to get privacy, but it remains attached with the house. We were sure the guests will not feel separate themselves.

The couple has a modern approach, so they decided to take shaker style design for kitchen, because it provided a feeling that the room is opened. Martha said that we choose cobalt blue tiles for mounting them behind the sink and around the windows.

The couple gives their vote in favor of warm yellow, strong reds and pretty blues. Deming told us that at first we painted everything white, and then we added warmer colors.

Martha said that we appreciated ourselves for this sensible selection. Here people come to make a conversation and like to sit at ease. We also enjoy here, but in summer we prefer to sit on deck. We are happy that our dreams have come true for a family house.
