Two main features of the project are the extensive garden at the back that establishes the visual connection between the interior and exterior; the kitchen at the heart of the interior which is very important for the social activities of the family and guests.
The extensive and deep garden at the back of the property is one of the main features of this contemporary design project. It’s the reason why in our proposal we made a wide and large window overlooking the green area. We practically kept the frontal part of the building the way it was but completely transformed the rear part by adding a 6 meters extension of the ground floor and 3 meters extension of the first floor.
The plan is simple, easy to read, and therefore functional. All the spaces are devoted to the main activities the family likes to execute. It’s the core of a good design when the space and home work for an owner, not the opposite when they help to maintain the way of living and makes daily routine easier and more pleasant.
On the ground floor, there is a cinema room and a second living room where homeowners may have some privacy talking to their guests or chill out without being disturbed.
There is a reading area with a view of the garden because reading is one of the most favourite client’s activities.
On the first floor, there is a spacious master bedroom, with access to the private terrace. On the same floor, there are a kids’ room and the guest rooms where the family members could stay over.
The work on this project is going smoothly and fruitful. The same client is working with us on another project, and we consider the client’s trust the best outcome.
The client gave us a really detailed briefing on what he would like to have. The residence should look contemporary, unique, and minimalist, with a strong connection to nature; this is why we use timber finish and big openings.
