Designed to meet the demands of a family with a young child and a dog the modern-minimal interior had to be both refined and kid-friendly without seeming far too sterile or impersonal. This was accomplished using a combination of raw textures and wood along with a neutral backdrop and pops of bright color.
But that is not where the many eco-friendly traits of this house end. Every little element has been carefully put in place to enhance its overall ‘green quotient’ and absolutely nothing is random or coincidental. Large glass windows and sliding glass doors bring in plenty of natural light along with cleverly placed skylights even as the open lower-level living area charms with its cool sunken living room. With a dining area and kitchen that are equally relaxing and yet unassuming you have an interior where less is definitely more.
