Some of us find our dream home in the small urban apartment that serves as a simple escape and a place to rest and relax in between all the hard work and partying. Others might prefer a magical escape that is nestled in the heart of unadulterated natural beauty and then there are those who are willing to take up the challenge of renovating an old discarded structure into a new house.
Designed by Paul de Ruiter Architects the creative private residence is crafted in just glass steel and concrete and the focus here is firmly on the view outside rather than the décor indoors.
The new homeowners of this post war two-story house wanted a contemporary interior that was breezy devoid of unnecessary partitions and featured a rear extension that offered additional living space. Scenario Architecture accomplished this by creating an open sitting area on the lower level with just a fireplace wall separating the reception area from the kitchen.
We often talk about creating your own personal sanctuary to escape the rush of daily life and while some of us do try few homes come close to this amazing residence in Indonesia designed by Atelier Cosmas Gozali.
A sculptural staircase connects the three floors with the kitchen dining area and living space being housed on the ground level and a gorgeous study and wraparound terrace on the third floor.
Minimalism at Villa K does not feel sterile as it is the scenery that surrounds this unique home that adds color and personality while the structure itself acts as a beautiful blank canvas.
The new kitchen is also draped in white with polished concrete surfaces and a smart breakfast table that can easily slide under the central island breaking a sense of visual monotony. Efficient elegant and exquisite this smart makeover is everything the homeowners longed for!
