Renovated house boasts a new modern look – the HomeMade project
Here we would like to offer you a modern renovated house present, which welcomes its guests with a newly designed facade. HomeMade is the first residential conversion project from the architectural firm Bureau de Change Design Office based in London.

This modern home was remodeled and renovated in 2012 and now boasts a new contemporary look. The double-wide living room is a perfect mix of old and new and is based on strong light-dark contrasts.
The fascinating residential building consists of 2 existing buildings on neighboring properties. The clients did not want to start with the architectural conditions, but rather optimize the floor plan, create a uniform look and change the orientation of the living space. A key decision with regard to the interior design was the choice of the heart of the house, says architect Billy Mavropoulos from Bureau de Change.
2 houses converted into a single family home
This so-called centerpiece is located in the “meeting point” of the former and the current residential building. It represents a wide and comfortable box room, clad with oak wood, which is used to store personal belongings. The vertically running oak wood panels are pulled down at an angle of 90 ° in order to create the stairs that lead to the upper floor.
The rear facade is provided with a lot of glass
The living room has an open plan and includes a stainless steel kitchen with island and dining area with access to the rear property area. As a modern renovated house should convey the feeling of more openness and spaciousness, the team of architects opted for floor-to-ceiling glazing. The 11 meter high facade consists of skylights and sliding elements that merge the visual border between the interior and exterior areas. The original components were recycled inside wherever possible.
