Rather than consisting of a silo converted into a home this next dwelling features silos that have been cleverly integrated into the architecture. In fact this amazing house by Hudson Architects is a converted 16th century Essex barn.
There’s no denying that recycling helps the planet. So it’s no surprise that recycled (or upcycled) homes are the ultimate in sustainable living! Today we feature upcycled silos that have been transformed into amazing dwellings. It’s interesting that a container used to store grain can later be used to house people. Sound too surprising to believe? The pictures below are the proof…
We now zoom in a little closer to see a detailed view of a Coodo modular home. Note the gleaming glass windows and the modern interior that features a mix of bright white materials and wooden finishes for a stunning contrast. Also eye catching is the use of rounded corners on indoor cabinets which creates forms that perfectly mirror the shape of the home itself!
Sleek modern kitchen along with the daft dining area have been designed keeping in mind the modern trend of clean and well defined spaces. The dark wall behind the headboard of the bed gives the bedroom an exclusive look while interesting art work throughout the home helps take the style quotient up a notch or two. A perfect urban dwelling that strikes a balance between elegance and ergonomics!
Below we feature a variety of modular housing options from long rectangular structures to a two-story home that will impress you with its angular design. There’s something liberating about simplifying your life down the the necessities yet doing it with oodles of style. Then again this lifestyle isn’t for everyone. But it’s fun to dream isn’t it?
