Great Contemporary House from a Transformed Public Library Building. Posted by Diana - House Designs.

Transforming building with various functions into a residential place such as contemporary house is a challenge for most architects. Commercial or public building had different interior and exterior compared to most residential place.

Some building had high ceiling or wide room while others have many pole and solid structures that canĂ¢??t be easily replaced. This is why it is a difficult task to change or transform commercial or public building into a comfortable and fully functional house. Comfortable living place means the design for this building must be carefully planned so not to leave the previous building atmosphere.

This public library in Portland is now converted into a contemporary house by Jessica Helgerson Interiors Design. Located in Sellwood Portland this marvelous residence manages to combine various elements into one comfortable contemporary house design.

First function as meeting hall this public library had a character of wide room. This leaves the designer many space to improvise. After remodeling and renovating the structure the designer then goes to the building interior elements such as the walling and furnishings.

The transformed building had the same old building character of high ceiling open and wide interior. So the main character of this building is a wide space. Maintaining the old function of public library still can be seen by the presence of large bookshelves.

These bookshelves also give a decorative element toward the whole interior. Remember that building transformation must have the previous function or characteristics. Unique results resulting from combination it the main goal of building transformation.

With the presence of wooden elements such as wooden floor or wooden window frame the designer then continue the transformation by adding wooden furnishings combined with modern style. Main color of this house is white with black brown. This color combination manages to preserve the spacious environment the building has and added a touch of stylish and solid room pattern into beautiful and transformed contemporary house.
