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.
Designed by InForm the bedrooms sit on the top level at the front and take in the park views even as the open living area and the rear garden act as the breezy family zone. The focus at this contemporary Aussie home is definitely outdoor living and the way it interacts with the open living space indoors.
A smart solution is often found in the form of a street façade that keeps away prying eyes while incorporating a rear section that opens up to the scenery that surrounds the house.
The old kitchen was turned into an informal second entrance and workspace while a smart custom staircase next to the dining area also holds tiered storage closets that allow the homeowners to keep the interior far more organized.
As is the case with most modern homes it is a neutral color palette that acts as a beautiful and unassuming canvas for the designer to showcase her true brilliance. Each room is filled with bespoke décor wonderful accessories and a fabulous piece of wall art or two and each one of them complements the other perfectly.
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.
The open living area is filled with bespoke décor from Vladimir Kagan that seems playful while blending in with the overall theme of the penthouse. Colorful area rugs are another distinct feature that creates a common design thread between various rooms of the home even as the four original Andy Warhol skull prints set the tone for the dining area.
