Sometimes just the smallest intervention can change the whole character of a home, like this beautiful aluminum addition in Utrecht. Called the Lighthouse and designed byBYTR Architects, the Dutch home's mesh-wrapped top floor floods the interior with diffused natural lighting. At night, the panels are back-lit and give off a lovely ethereal glow that the neighbors are surely jealous of.
Sometimes the smallest intervention can give a home a brand new character
Such is the case with the Lighthouse addition by BYTR Architects
The new aluminum floor looks like the eye of a submarine
Backlit at night, it gives the home an ethereal glow
A new rooftop terrace and herb garden were created by the addition
As well as more interior space that was filled in with stairs
During the day, the home is flooded with natural lighting
Creating a lovely interior ambience
With all the new daylighting, no doubt the Lighthouse's owners are enjoying significantly reduced energy bills!
