Think of storage space and our mind drifts towards wall-mounted cabinets and large shelves that make the most of the vertical room on offer in our modest homes. But have you ever considered all the floor space that goes to waste?
A sculptural wooden staircase links the two levels of the loft and a functional blend of artificial illumination and natural light give the home a merry vibe. The smart use of textures and bold colors drives away any sense of boredom even as the stunning terrace and rooftop garden complete an inimitable interior that seems to have a style of its own!
One of the biggest challenges during the design of this multi-level house was both its unique orientation and the flood of sunlight that entered the house because of the giant glass wall that connects the living area with the pool outside.
Skylights that usher in a flood of natural light and smart artificial lighting complete an exquisite home where ergonomics and frugality take precedence over outlandish style and aesthetics!
One of the most interesting features of this house is the rumpus room that currently acts as the playroom. Connected with the deck living area barbecue zone and the yard adults in the house can keep an eye on the little ones spending their time here from pretty much everywhere!
On the lowest level one sees the living space / TV room that creates a vivacious and fun atmosphere with its semi-industrial style and iconic décor additions like the Wegner’s Papa Bear Chair.
It is a delicate balance between openness and privacy that is achieved with these masterfully crafted screens with the raw concrete next to it adding another interesting textural and visual element. On the inside one sees an open plan living area on the lowest level that flows into the timber deck and pool area outside.
