A ground floor flat spread across different levels the lovely home is blessed with a small private garden and courtyard which extend the living space outdoors. Built in the 1910s the old dark and congested interior of the flat has been completely transformed by doing away with the unwanted internal partitions and giving the townhouse a fresh modern facelift.
Contrasting synergy is what we see at the at Nichada Village in Thailand with these smart and stylish structures offering two completely different perspectives on interior design. Crafted with care by Alkhemist Architects to meet the needs of two brothers who wanted to live close to one another this interesting project showcases how one can fashion two strikingly different interiors in homes that sit next to one another even while incorporating a common thread.
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!
Not too far away from the famous the townhouse seems to embrace the charm and essence of life in New York City even while bringing together vintage and modern design elements in a fluid fashion. Original millwork along with a custom living room cabinet adds sculptural style and textural beauty to an interior that is draped in neutral hues.
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.
On the lower level of the house one finds the living area along with the kitchen dining space and a Zen-style nook next to the staircase that also holds an indoor tree. Additional bedrooms and storage spaces make up the rear part of the ground floor with the first floor holding the master bedroom and study.
The fifth-floor apartment has a more industrial-retro feel to it with exposed concrete walls and an iron frame-coated glass closet setting the mood indoors. Space-savvy décor and smart lighting complete the interior where comfort is coupled with ergonomics in an efficient fashion.
