Amazing converted homes impress with unique architectural designs and modern interiors

Bright kids bedrooms with indoor hammocks reflect the Venezuelan roots of the owner. The old barn shape defines the unique house exterior which faces a modern city street and makes a real attraction.

Glass staircase design with book shelves

The modern house has a sloped roof which protects the building in a few ways. The old barn building was surrounded by mature Jacaranda trees with leaves and flowers creating organic waste that caused the flooding. Architects added a slope to the roof, preventing this natural effect and keeping home interiors dry and safe.
