One young couple, who decided to move from the noisy city to quieter place, has precisely defined the concept of its future interior. It should contain as much natural materials, as possible, yet the furnishings should be expressly modern. In order to fill the house with textures, able to provide pleasant tactile senses, the designers used stone and wood for finishing at all functional zones. The wood has also balanced harsh concrete ceilings.
Second component of the style, namely modern glance, is provided by furniture and décor in bright tinctures. The furniture, textile and accessories became the main colour emphases. They became naturally combined with neutral “nature” background. Splashes of colour (bright-blue, terracotta, fushia) created the desired contrast with calm tinctures of wood and natural stone.
Separate storyline of the interior is transparency and lightness of glass. The kitchen provides panorama through floor-to-ceiling windows, whereas the staircase, leading to the second floor, is protected with glass banisters. Thus, the sunlight enters every corner of the premises.
Sliding glass doors surround the swimming pool as well, which has found its place at the very center of the house. Thus, the first floor may be almost totally visible from every point and the space becomes visually enlarged.
The swimming pool presents the water element, which enters into the symbolic dialogue with the fire of fireplaces, the air and sunlight.
The bedroom is lighted by Moooi lighting fixtures and their asymmetrical location creates dramatic effect.
