A set of moving panels and a spacious shelf become the focal point of the family room with the panels sliding in and out of place to hide TV storage spaces and other compartments when not in use. A comfy daybed in green next to the window provides even more storage space with a slim work desk next to it becoming the study zone.
Dark exterior of the house stands in contrast to the light cheerful and modern interior with the ground floor housing the living kitchen and dining in one wing and a family room study additional bedroom and other utility space in the other.
A tiny hut in the midst of an open space is a great choice of a secluded residence that proudly represents the tough feeling of a rustic exterior and connects you to the natural textures. Luxury can be enjoyed even deep within the woods. A big wood cottage with a modern design that emphasises the importance of well-lit spaces is the perfect example of a glamorous getaway cabin.
This large cottage mixes the stone and the wood creating a beautiful rustic piece within the natural scenery. The stone chimney is the most eye-catching element that truly sets the tone for the cottage’s aged presence. A charming cottage with a big deck and big windows is a wonderful getaway place for anyone who loves to have a great view of the nature even from the comfort of the indoors.
Nestled in the fertile valley of and surrounded by beautiful mountains and untouched woods the striking contemporary home is a confluence of three separate wings each designed in the form of a square. At the heart of this expansive home is a three-sided hearth that delineates spaces gives each wing its individual style and becomes the focal point of the open living area.
But that is not the only space that was altered to meet the growing demands of an urban family. The more rigid kitchen of the house with a counterproductive U-shaped kitchen layout was replaced by a new kitchen where a smart worktop and ergonomic island combine modern minimalism with industrial overtones.
Beyond the passive solar design principles a lovely garden and green landscape around the residence add to its sustainable style. Despite a modest street façade the house opens up towards the rear and brings the outdoors inside.
