But the in takes an entirely different approach to its design with a more energy-efficient and eco-friendly set of apartments that are LEED platinum certified and perfect for the eco-conscious homeowner.
Designed by André Pihl to combine Nordic minimalism with modernity and plenty of warmth the lovely little escape offers all the comforts of a contemporary home and does so without going overboard. It offers a lesson in restrained sophistication with an interior that is clad entirely in white.
Décor in the living area dining room and the game room is much more classic in its appeal with curtains that add flowery pattern and plenty of color energizing the spaces. One can see a lovely transition of styles here even as the modern woodsy kitchen becomes the new heart and soul of this timeless residence.
Ceramic and terrazzo finishes also give the home plenty of textural contrast with the warm and traditional kitchen becoming the heart and soul of this Asian residence. The living area also uses color in a sophisticated manner with green walls and a neutral backdrop creating a picture-perfect setting.
A flood of natural light and a neutral backdrop add to the newfound sense of spaciousness with the bedrooms study and other private areas sitting at the front. For many of us 7 meters of space does not seem like much. But there are townhouses across the globe that work with far less in terms of the width available to them.
Despite the use of blue accent additions and bold metallics the house is largely neutral and large sliding glass doors welcome the outdoors inside during warmer summer months.
It is the rear of the house that gets a dramatic facelift with the new addition while the street façade remains completely unchanged. This preserves the original classic vibe of the residence even while ensuring that the interior has an aura that is inspired by modern industrial lofts in cities like New York and Vancouver.
But the true showstopper of this Vietnamese residence is undoubtedly the dashing with a glass railing that blends minimalism with textural charm and a hint of industrial panache. Social zones outside are carefully integrated with the rooms inside and a flood of natural light ensures there is no dull corner inside this beautiful home.
