This family residence planned and implemented by I.R.A. is composed of a one-story house accommodating an elder family and a two-story house for a younger family. In between, the architects built a Japanese style room with a terrace. The roofs of both dwellings are smoothly connected, despite their different heights. We love this example of modern Japanese architecture, where minimalism is accompanied by a high level of originality.
Weather conditioned heavily influenced the overall design and use of materials: “Considering the effects of snow cornice and snow damages, we connected its roof and walls seamlessly with steel sheet; the walls which expose birch plywood in each room support the heavy weight of snow“, explained the architects. Curving ceilings lead to an indoor geometry based on asymmetry, which we find charming. Wooden flooring and a central chandelier make up for the minimalist approach, adding up to an inviting look.

Charming Modern Home Extension Re-Shaping Socializing Opportunities

Extending a home to fit current needs is not to be taken easily. A modern home extension requires planning for future use and using what already exists to support that. An exemplary proof is Casa ATT by Dionne Arquitectos, a home in Puebla, Mexico, that was re-designed by the architects as a fuller, more nurturing collection of spaces. In their successful effort of renewing the outline of the house, architects integrated the new structure into the familiar floor plan by “generating clear transitional environments discovering visual axes and circulation leading to the new spaces.”

Plenty of socializing areas bring the family together: the new open social space, terrace and guest bedroom complete the necessary space and helps better organize the interiors. In addition, the terrace overlooking the garden connects the original volume with the new additions. In these photos captured by Patrick López Jaimes, the layout looks beautifully put together. From the front, the house looks private and once you step inside, details flood your design-hungry mind. According to the architects, “ATT House is a house in which a clear spatial harmony lives through environments that invite habitation.”

What do you think about this modern home extension? Can this home inspire you to extend your own piece of heaven? mo
