The first thing that comes to mind when entering the large hallways and the enormous open-space rooms is that can be achieved. Everything is so well organized. From the outdoor landscape that seems depicted from a Photoshop picture to the sophisticated furniture which compliments every room in the house you’re in a dream place filled with natural light. On top of this the feeling of airiness blends well with the needed privacy.

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!
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!
