Transforming an Old Elementary School into a Modern Vacation Home required not only a vision, but also meticulous planning and execution. These elements come together to form a rewarding outcome. In this project, we merged history, architecture, and contemporary comfort to create a unique and enticing holiday home.
One alluring feature of old elementary schools is their traditional architecture. We preserved the building's original appearance and characteristics, such as high ceilings, large windows, and historical details. Collaborating closely with the client, we designed the home to be spacious and bright.
The process continues…
