Designed to be wheelchair-friendly and equipped with an elevator it is the generous use of skylights and floor-to-ceiling glass windows that give Villa U its refreshing ambiance. And as summer spring and fall roll in each year the homeowners of this ingenious Danish home could just be tempted to spend more time outside than indoors!
Designed by David Howell Design the luxurious penthouse is spread across three spacious levels and is nestled on top of a building with an original cast iron façade – an iconic image in itself!
A sculptural staircase with a wooden handrail and copper railings leads to the top level with plush bedrooms and other private spaces. Colorful bathrooms and a series of space-savvy home offices complete a stupendous makeover that seems like the perfect holiday destination and a dream home for those seeking to escape into the heart of the Alps!
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 delicate balance between a contemporary home that offers ample privacy to those within its confines and still manages to allow them an unabated view of the scenic landscape is a hard one to accomplish.
Smart eco-friendly design was one of the key constraints that shaped the house with every room of the house enjoying a connection with natural elements. Some of the existing trees on the lot were removed and relocated carefully to ensure that the impact of construction was minimal even as passive heating and cooling techniques reduce reliance on artificial sources. And binding this astounding fusion of styles textures and patterns is undoubtedly the at the heart of the house that steals the show!
It is vertical Kayu Batu siding and white plastered balconies that refresh the façade of the house and give it a smart yet distinct new look. On the inside a white backdrop coupled with lovely mahogany surfaces ensures that the interior is both minimal and inviting.
