Remodeling and renovating is almost always a green choice over building new. Finding a home with solid bones and putting your own stamp on it is a great way to integrate both good design and sustainability into your house. Imbue Design took a 1920s bungalow in Salt Lake City and turned it into a modern home that still fits into the neighborhood.
According the the architects:
352 is the perfect marriage of the iconic Salt Lake City bungalow and contemporary modern design. From the street this modest remodel sits unassumingly within a 1920s suburban neighborhood. From the backyard the house's Jotoba wood cladding provides a strong but complimentary contrast from its original aesthetic and geometry. The master bedroom / bathroom addition to the rear allows public space to open up unhindered by private functions. This stimulating modern remodel has brought life back to a once listless dwelling.
By reframing the spaces to be more efficient and light-filled the architects were able to create usable space where there once was none. Careful attention was paid to selecting efficient enclosures and sustainable finishes making this home not only gorgeous but green. Find out more at Imbue Design.
