Restoration of an 18th Century Colonial House

Usually old historical buildings pass many periods of changes. They are the witnesses of a lot of important events, perhaps periods of war that make them vulnerable and affect their structure and design. In time they suffer a lot of modifications and people try to restore them in order to make them resist in time or update them.

Thus, there is an 18th century colonial house, located in Port Louis, Mauritius which was restored and its back stable buildings were transformed in some modern offices. There were used wood items for the restoration of the existing wooden structure, external walls and the roof cladding so that the historical building could keep its original design.

Glass walls are also used for the colonial house, especially for the bathroom. The house keeps the wooden dark staircases and the massive wood pieces of furniture, Chandeliers are present too like some of the paintings that appear on the walls. The multitude of interior doors is also kept and the long and elegant window curtains too. White seem to dominate all the interiors which it is contrasted by the dark nuance of the wooden pieces of furniture or the wood parquet.{found on behance}.
