Renovated into a bright cheerful modern residence by Maxwan Architects + Urbanists the lower level of the home makes an intelligent use of space. With a dining table kitchen island and other decor additions on casters the interior has a dynamic appeal. Large windows and skylights add to this ambiance by ushering in ample natural light.
Sensible choices in terms of furniture and accessories helped in providing a beautiful bridge between the classic and the contemporary. Even though that backdrop of each room is kept neutral bright blues lovely yellows and refreshing greens create a lively elegant home.
Additions like the bookcase on the home office level (built out of harvested birch trunks and glass panels) give the interior a distinct ambiance. Most of the colors are inspired by the many sights and sounds outside while iconic decor additions brilliant lighting and sculptural features like the spiral staircase elevate the appeal of the contemporary villa. Sliding frames with wooden slats shape the façade of the home while allowing those inside to switch between complete seclusion and unabated views with ease.
