Architectural design: Modern house renovation

Architectural design: Modern house renovation | Votproject

Welcome to our latest architectural venture – a captivating transformation of a once-single-story building into a stunning two-story modern house, a masterpiece meticulously crafted by Votproject. In this blog post, we'll take you on a journey through the design process, the challenges faced, and the triumphant result that now stands as a testament to modern minimalistic living.

The challenge was clear: breathe new life into an old one-story structure and expand it to meet the evolving needs of a modern family. With a vision in mind, we embarked on the journey of transforming this house into a spacious haven.

The addition of a second story was a game-changer

The addition of a second story was a game-changer, not just in terms of space but also in elevating the house's aesthetic appeal. Two new bedrooms and an additional bathroom were seamlessly integrated, providing the family with the perfect balance of privacy and togetherness. The result? A harmonious blend of old and new, a testament to our commitment to preserving the essence of the original structure while embracing contemporary design principles.


One of the owner's primary wishes was to have a home that connected seamlessly with its natural surroundings. To fulfill this desire, we incorporated large windows strategically throughout the house, allowing the breathtaking landscape to become an integral part of the interior experience.

The master bedroom were strategically positioned to maximize views of the water, providing the perfect vantage point for enjoying the mesmerizing sunset.

Functional Luxury: 3 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, and Spacious Living Areas

Beyond aesthetics, the functionality of the space was a top priority. The house now boasts three bedrooms and four bathrooms, ensuring that every family member has their own retreat within the home. The children, having their own common bedroom and individual bathrooms, enjoy a sense of independence while still being close to their parents.

The living room, designed with a modern and minimalistic approach, stands as the heart of the home. Spacious enough to host large family gatherings and entertaining friends, it's a versatile area that adapts to the needs of the family. The open design encourages a sense of connection, allowing everyone to be part of the social activities while basking in the natural light flooding through the expansive windows.

Modern Minimalism: A Timeless Aesthetic

The design ethos of this Virginia modern house is rooted in modern minimalism. Clean lines, a neutral color palette, and the strategic use of space create an atmosphere that feels both contemporary and timeless. The simplicity of the design not only enhances the visual appeal but also fosters a sense of tranquility within the home.

In conclusion, Votproject has successfully transformed a dated one-story house into a modern marvel that captures the essence of living. With a keen focus on preserving the natural beauty of the surroundings, the renovation and expansion of this house serve as a testament to our commitment to both form and function. It's not just a house; it's a reflection of a family's lifestyle, where elegance meets everyday functionality.
