Check out this interesting example for a modern residential building, which used to be an old historical building. The property is located in Breukelen, Holland and was designed by the architecture studio in 2012 Zecc Architects designed and built. This residence has a rich history and used to be an old carriage house with a horse stable nearby.
Old building with historical significance is transformed into a modern residential building
A modern residential building nowadays could very well have a rich history and interesting past. The original building was built in 1760. The former wagon shed looks very modern and elegant these days. Even so, the architects decided to keep the old historical elements. In this way the house became an interesting mix of antiquity and modernism.
Modern house keeps the old decorative elements
This example for a modern residential building reflects the successful mix of past and present. The modern living room is now where the horse stable used to be. The typical stable elements, however, are integrated quite appropriately in the modern interior and are an extraordinary but interesting decoration. Nowadays the carriage room is practically the fully equipped kitchen. Very fine elements that emphasize the elegance of the house design are the high doors and the solid oak staircase.
