In this article, we continue with the great examples for modern houses. We present a project from Kiev in Ukraine and the LADPRAO 80 House from the Black Pencils Studio in Bangkok. They are examples of modern houses based on the reconstruction of old buildings. Inside and outside you recognize the most modern trends.

Reconstructed modern houses
The first object is located in a suburb of Kiev in Ukraine. The names of the architects are Denis Zadniprovskyi, Anastasiya Cherevishnaya, Iurii larionov, Kaplia Antonina. The house stretches over 141 square meters and the great pictures we owe to the photographer Sergey Polyushko. The previous owners have totally neglected and therefore one had to deal with the renovation very much.
The original building had very many small rooms and an Attic construction. In the new design the partition walls were removed. Also part of the supporting wall fell away. In their place some wooden beams come. As is typical of modern houses, dining room and kitchen have become a uniform space.
Open plan: kitchen and dining room in one
Living room at double height
Already before the renovation one had a living room on two levels. But access to sunlight was not enough. For this reason, a fire place was built in the corner. To lighten the room, the plasma TV should also be installed opposite the couch. Almost all the ideas, including the floor plan, the self-leveling floor, as well as the kitchen work surface at the window and the color combinations were granted by the customer because of the comfortable radiance and modernity.
The Neuhaus design shows very many metal elements. This is e.g. The staircase leading to the balcony via hidden doors. In the entrance there are 4 cm metal frames, which protect against mechanical damage at the corners.
LADPRAO 80 House
The second project, namely LADPRAO 80 House / Black Pencils Studio in Bangkok, Thailand, was developed on the basis of already existing structures. This time it was not just about renovating, but also about the union of two old houses. One was designed to create a double living volume. The second served service functions behind the parking lot and the garage.
There is an extension from the main building. It surrounds this in L-shape and houses 4 bedrooms, which are located on the second and third floors.
From the south comes a lot of sunlight and the building is aerated. The private space is protected by several layers of architectural elements. Wooden grilles, stainless steel frames and wide glass façades are just some of these.
Protection of privacy
From the outside the house is surrounded by trees and fence. These serve as natural visibility. Furthermore, interesting patterns are created inside the light-shadow play. There are also exciting mirror effects on the glass façade.
Thanks to these effects, the atmosphere in the house changes from morning to night. The interior also has an influence on its surroundings. The tectonics of architecture contribute to the three-dimensional appearance of the façade. An exciting constellation of functionality, spatial quality and architectural aesthetics come together.
In practice both houses are very comfortable and cozy. Everywhere, it is very spacious and very bright. All inhabitants, including four dogs, seem to feel comfortable after many years.
