The first thing you notice as you step off of the elevator that opens directly into the penthouse is the soaring glass atrium that allows sunlight to flood the entire apartment. The design’s musical references become more and more apparent as your eye traces the rich wood of the floor and dramatic fret-like staircase that mimics the neck of a violin.
The constant unending rush of busy urban life in concrete jungles is driving many of us into the lap of nature for a more relaxed and organic lifestyle. Located in the idyllic commune of Snagov this fabulous residence is wrapped in a cloak of green and opens up toward the beautiful lake outside.
Instead of excavating the plot to do away with this gradient architects from Hilberink Bosch used this unique feature to give the lavish residence an air of exclusivity! Surrounded by a dense forest the home benefits from plenty of natural cover that provides the residents with ample privacy.
An elevated platform ensures that the view of the lake outside is visible from almost every corner of the living area and dining room. The double-height dining space looks even more spectacular thanks to the dazzling chandelier above that steals the show! The balanced use of Italian parquet rosewood and glass gives the home a refined appeal.
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.
