The central garden of the house is its main social area and it’s flanked by the main living zone on one side and a home office and recreational wing on the other. Fold-away doors on both sides turn the living space into a passage between the front yard and the central garden!
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.
Stacked wood that sits next to the fireplace adds texture to the interior while artwork such as the yellow Pixel Deer by Jihoon Choi gives the living area a fun casual vibe. The dining area next to the living space features a custom square dining table crafted using reclaimed wood and the kitchen also epitomizes this ‘salvaged’ approach with unique metal bar stools.
This gives the living space kitchen and the bathrooms plenty of character and a unique flair while keeping the color scheme strictly neutral. The use of large glass windows smart skylights and glass doors brings in plenty of natural light which flows from one room to the next. Midcentury décor additions are combined with modern counterparts to create a balance between styles and eras.
The design of the home insulation used and smart choice of light fixtures makes the residence extremely energy-efficient and the addition of photovoltaic panels provides green energy while dramatically reducing the carbon footprint.
