Sometimes it’s all about the view and a home has to live up to the scenery that surrounds it! Set on the idyllic coast of England this exquisite modern residence was once an old bungalow that was in need of an urgent and refreshing transformation.
The vertical space inside the apartment is used to the hilt with a mezzanine-level bedroom overlooking the spacious kitchen and dining area below. The living space is inherently simple with a bright blue couch at the heart of it all.
Décor inside the apartment is also as minimal as possible with white holding sway once again. A gallery wall and a cool ladder make up the dining room backdrop and the ladder also serves as a practical addition as it lets the homeowner access the top shelves and cabinets in the adjacent kitchen.
Crafting a low-energy modern home is all about getting the ‘bones’ of the house right and adding additional energy-efficient features that allow it to cut back on power consumption. This large home in Vienna Austria designed by Zoran Bodrozic is one such delight that seems to maintain an open inviting ambiance despite its eco-friendly credentials.
Track lighting in black and Tom Dixon pendants in the same hue add to the dramatic appeal of the dining space with a beautifully-lit stairwell leading to the top floors. It is the rear of the house that completely opens up towards the large deck pool and spa zone outside thanks to the extensive use of glass walls and floor-to-ceiling glass windows.
