Abandoned House Turned Into A Pet-Friendly Modern Home

Today it’s a modern and open home but not so long ago it used to be an old and neglected house. It has a bunch of small rooms and an attic and it wasn’t really suited for a modern lifestyle. Then its current owners went to TSEH Architectural Group for help with the reconstruction of the house.

The reconstruction of the house was completed in 2017. It now serves as a cozy and bright home to its owners and their pet dogs. The architects made sure to take into consideration their clients’ inclination towards a simple style and a practical decor. One of the most major changes was the removal of the internal walls.

The new floor plan combines the kitchen, living and dining spaces into one zone

The original house layout was not suitable for a modern lifestyle. There were a lot of small rooms and even an attic space. The architects removed the walls and the attic and created a double-height living space which together with the dining area and the kitchen forms an open floor plan.

The house is located in Kiev, Ukraine and has a total surface of 141 square meters. The largest area is the social space. The dining table is at the center, with the kitchen on one side and the lounge area on the other. The living room is furnished with a comfortable gray sofa that faces a large TV with firewood stored underneath. The fireplace is positioned in the corner.

The architects made sure to make the house a great home for the dogs as well so they added this grill floor in the bathroom so they can wash their paws without making a mess.
