Modern Industrial style updates a Family Home
After years of living in a 150sqm condo, a family of five moves into a bright and airy house
Modern industrial design is an ideal choice for family homes because it looks refreshingly clean and clutter-free. Bare and simple spaces can also be affordable because there is no need for expensive elements. John and Bambi Camus chose this sleek and streamlined style for the first house that they have built together with children Lucho, Ally, and Nicolai. After living in a 150sqm condo unit for 15 years, they asked Bambi’s brother, Beijing-based architect Marco Torres to help them create their dream structure.
The couple wanted a spacious home with an open layout – something that they did not have in their former property. While they opted for a modest, reasonably-sized floor areas that would be easier to maintain, white walls, high ceiling, and the lack of solid walls make the 250sqm space seem larger. They even decided not to add another bedroom to the second floor so that the first floor can have a double height ceiling that would add to the illusion of a sprawling space.
