One year after purchasing this house in New York, the home owners asked Blaze Makoid Architecture to bring the home back to life by completely renovating it.

 

Wood and glass elements were added to contrast the aluminum siding of the existing building and helped to warm the material palette.

A landscaped yard with paths surrounds this New York home.

Leading up to the home, it’s easy to see that the yard has been meticulously designed, with small steps leading up to the front door that’s surrounded by wood.

Right next to the pool and backyard is a partially enclosed wooden outdoor area set up as a dining room, perfect for enjoying meals outside when the weather is nice.

In the living room and casual dining room, large windows make the space bright, and a floor-to-ceiling wooden bookshelf makes sure there’s enough room for displaying decorative items and books.

Beyond the living room is the more formal dining room, with a sculptural light fixture that anchors the dining table in the space.

Other areas of the home include stairs that are enclosed with half-size safety walls.


White and wood always make a good combination when creating contemporary stairs.

The home also has a secondary lounge area, with windows that are hidden at the bottom of the walls, providing a subtle source of light for the room.
