Obtaining undergone an inspirational renovation, Glass Property is a modern day dream property embodying light and air. Situated in Winchester, Hampshire in South England, this residence by AR Design Studio is a fresh take on contrast with original brickwork fused with walls of glass.
Formerly a dilapidated manor, the residence was extended slightly towards the rear to open up the floor strategy, while a single-story structure was constructed to even out the arrangement, while forming a quaint courtyard. A big terrace with potted trees is slightly elevated over the lawn, facing the trees and surrounding gardens. This spectacular glass addition echoes a greenhouse, which becomes a cheery contribution to this more conventional estate.
The shared living space is open to the lounging area, dining area and kitchen, all resting within a glazed box. The effect of stark white walls against the glass is ethereal, with natural light pouring into these spaces throughout the day.
What is probably most beautiful, is the way the classic brick walls can be thoroughly viewed, not to mention appreciated, from inside the new glass addition. These interiors appear to glow and are precisely minimalist, with white-on-white furnishings, smooth pale ceramic flooring, as well as a sleek, stainless steel kitchen. A frameless glazed railing becomes a focal point of this great space, wrapping a set of stairs which descends to the reduce level of the dwelling which functions a cellar.
Just a bit additional inside the property, a huge sheet of glass becomes a skylight window in the upstairs hallway of the double-height primary entrance. The staircase here is a masterpiece, appearing much more as an art installation, with thick slabs of glass seemingly suspended between the wall and sheet of glass acting as the handrail. A large rustic urn sits behind it, generating a gallery effect within this otherwise bare space. Stunning style!
