A Symphony of Light, Space, and Materiality
On stepping in, visitors are greeted by a foyer featuring a striking, flame-treated black clay wainscot, serving as a visual full-stop that introduces the subsequent narrative of the home. As they move further in, the social areas unfurl—comprising the dining room, living area, and terrace, which serve as the pulse of the residence.
These communal spaces offer a seamless connection to the exterior via generous windows, blurring the lines between inside and outside. The windows serve a dual purpose—extending the interior space into the terrace and, at the same time, framing spectacular views of the surrounding landscape.
Towards the rear, the kitchen stands out as an elegant oasis with its minimalist design, dark tonalities, and green accents from indoor plants. Adjacent to the kitchen, the playroom and music room are designed with an introspective ambiance, featuring warm tones and privacy-enhancing elements like shutters and smart glass sliding doors.
The design uniquely combines readymade furniture with a rich palette of natural materials—wood, marble, faux leather, steel, and glass. Wood, in particular, is the show-stealer, manifesting in architectural and decorative elements like wainscoting and beams, creating intriguing perspectives and visual focal points.
Acting as a central meeting point and a vestibule for the private quarters, the family room features a large bookshelf teeming with diverse decorative objects, a testament to the family’s eclectic style.
In the private spaces, each room is tailored to reflect the lifestyle and hobbies of the family members. In the master bedroom, a neutral color scheme envelops the floors and walls in earthy ochre tones, amplifying the natural light and setting the stage for accentuating the furnishings.
