Turning a Contractor’s Warehouse Into a Cozy Home

You could call designers Christine Ho Ping Kong and Peter Tan bold, but when they first moved in Toronto and bought a giant two-story concrete-block structure and decided to turn it into their home, most of the neighbors thought they were plain mad. Not the case anymore, the couple managed to transform the giant and lifeless structure into a warm adobe that comprises of a 30-foot-wide main floor that opens onto a broad, sunlit courtyard. Tan built the home largely by himself and along the way they changed the interiors by using mahogany, Douglas fir, or teak to bring in some class to the concrete. While the interiors were transformed with new found life, some green on the exterior added greater glow to the home, making the transformation complete. [via Dwell]
