Design studio Graypants have taken up the challenge of transforming an old lake side garage into an incredible lake cabin with expansive incredible natural views.The original wooden structure has been considered an asset and preserved as well as a bunch of old materials have been incorporated into the new modern home.Glass walls manage to connect the interior space with the natural element, transforming this old space into a modern cozy one perfect as a relaxation holiday retreat.
“The garage aims to make design mysterious. Making mundane tasks of our lives into opportunities that create beauty through joyful interaction. Providing a canvas that allows imagination to make new old and old new. The new becoming a theatre to watch the old gradually fade away. This space wasn’t about ordinary… it was about touching on boundaries of what is ordinary.”
The wooden roof filters natural light beautifully.Notice the old stove which has been preserved as well from the old existing site.
A modern lighting installation has been introduced, converting this old garage into a luminous elegant sculpture.
Relax and enjoy nature in the perfect scenery.
