New Zeeland Residence Combines Vertical Architecture With Delightful Ergonomic Features

This cabin-style residence can be found in New Zeeland where it was designed and built by Glamuzina Paterson Architects. It’s a modern home although it has a rustic feel.

The residence measures a total of 81 square meters so it’s quite small. Nevertheless, it has an open and airy interior. The main goal for the architects working at this project was to create an ergonomic and energy-efficient home. In order to do that, they took advantage of the orientation and location of the house.

1906 Church Updated To The Status Of Luxury Living Space

Churches are often perceived as places where peace is dominating and they’re synonymous with sanctuaries. So, when you think about it, converting a church into a home is not a very bad idea. You get to combine two independent but similar types of spaces. There are many cases of churches that got transformed. One of them can be seen in Seattle.

This used to be a church and it was originally built in 1906. 100 years later the building was sold to developers and it got transformed into a complex of homes.

Many of the original elements have been preserved in order to let the character and charm of the old building influence the new design. The historic landmark now houses 12 town home units. They all share a very large atrium with a stained glass roof.
