For this apartment, our focus was to create a natural ambiance, generated by straight and clear lines and simple surfaces.
Minimal textures are contrasting with big areas of oak wood, a natural element with a lot of character.
For accommodating this open spaces, and all the functions required, we had to make some layout changes, but in the end achieved a clear design, based on functionality and communication.
The straightforward shapes divide the space into clear areas, adorned with what seem to be accent pieces, but are in fact functionally driven design items.
Again, a simple bedroom in form, but rich in feeling and concept. As the client is a practitioner of the eastern arts, and a seeker of mindfulness, we designed a huge mandala as the only purely decorative item in this master bedroom.
The second Livingroom is treated as a connection place between the two kids bedrooms, thus becoming a common play and experiment area for the two.
By doing so, we have split the activities a child normally has, into two distinct areas: the more introspective ones, such as rest and study in the bedroom, and the playful and experimental ones in a communal area.
Their bedrooms are meant to be a personal sanctuary. Designed around their interests, the bedroom design reflects their current individuality, but can be easily adapted in the future, when and if this changes.
A clean and simple design, revolving around naturally flowing shapes, and textures.
