Hellerup Manor House is home to numerous pieces designed by Wegner’s expert hand including prototypes and samples that he developed jointly with Holger Hansen Knud Erik Hansen’s father.
Originally owned by designer-builder Kipp Stewart the cabin has also hosted the likes of Phillip Johnson and David Whitney in the past. Its latest avatar was crafted by Studio Schicketanz by giving it a breezy overhaul with a new kitchen and bathroom as well as a smart refurbishment.
How many times have you shied away from using color in your modern living room because you felt that it would seem ungainly and a touch too gaudy? But this vibrant private residence designed by Suite Arquitetos will surely change your view on color in a contemporary home as it embraces pops of blue orange red yellow and even purple with a sense of glee.
A new kitchen living area and dining space on the lower level are connected with the pool area using large sliding glass doors bringing in a flood of natural light. The color scheme is kept largely neutral to let the vast and tasteful art collection of the homeowner shine through in various rooms of the house.
The examples of contemporary Russian architecture shown below both single houses and apartments are crafted with meticulous flair skilfully framing both landscape and space. Their pristine arrangement and sense of innocence conjures up the notion of a line in the sand where old Russia is left behind and new Russia is forging ahead.
The lower level of the home contains the living space along with kitchen dining area and guest rooms that are connected with the large rear garden through glass doors. An additional wing houses social zones along with the top floor that contains the master suite and family bedrooms.
Bringing together the past and the present in a wonderful alchemy of styles and eras seems to be the favored path in the case of most home renovations in recent times. The idea of adaptive reuse of an existing structure instead of completely dismantling it and starting afresh has caught on both because of its economic and aesthetic sense. Located in the suburb of just a few miles from the heart of this fabulous home epitomizes the approach of blending the modern with the classic.
