A Thorp Design creation the new interior of this seemingly regal house is all about blending the old and the new in a balanced and refreshingly innovative fashion. The result is impressive in the way it makes an otherwise overwhelmingly lavish setting seem cozy and even ‘private’.
It is the upper level that now houses the more formal living area kitchen with a view of the distant harbor and the bedrooms of the parents. This level was designed to act as an individual home on its own down the line with the lower level accommodating the kids.
Nestled in the middle of a beautiful oak forest and overlooking the ocean in the distance is a Swedish home that sits next to a summer home that was originally built in the 1960’s. The contemporary structure makes its presence felt with a dark and dashing exterior that is minimal and lit elegantly using sconce lighting.
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.
Stretching just 7 meters wide and 20 meters in length the designed by 7A Architecture Studio is one such gorgeous contemporary home where two smartly planned levels maximize space with ease.
The new block in the rear contains the kitchen dining area and the sitting lounge and becomes the hub of activity. A clear demarcation of styles between the original unit and the latest addition is maintained even while ensuring that the transition between both the spaces is as smooth as possible.
The main unit contains the living area long with the kitchen and dining. A second building houses the bathrooms and the bedrooms with the third acting as a spacious and versatile home studio and play area for kids.
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.
