A modern home with Scandinavian style and a dark exterior that helps keep the interior warm in chilly winter months; in Oslo maximizes space in its own unique way. Designed by Austigard Arkitektur this minimal residence is draped in wood with black or white pigmented beech veneer covering most of the rooms.
At its heart is a double height dining area / social and activity zone with a large wooden tale. The 1.5 x 3.0 m table provides plenty of desk space for everyone in the family and becomes the heart and soul of the refreshing interior.
The common areas outdoor gardens and walkways between the two structures serve a space for relaxation while the new interior makes up in style for what it lacks in sheer volume.
Each of the homes might seem identical on the outside but step in and you notice the subtle variations in the floorplan wherever needed to make the most of the views on offer. Community living concept is coupled with privacy and healthy living at these Hong Kong homes.
Giving new meaning to styles from a different era is a task that requires careful amalgamation of contrasting textures finishes and design elements. Nestled in a tranquil neighborhood of a suburb of Melbourne and overlooking a green park this contemporary home feels anything but mundane and sterile.
The new building built by Elliott + Elliott Architecture is part of a multi-generational home where the kids and the grandchildren occupy the main farmhouse while the head of the family finds space in the newly built structure just outside. A wooden deck connects the two buildings and preserves the traditional charm of the farmhouse.
One of the immediate highlights of the interior that one notices is the split-level living area and the way its vast double-height presence becomes the overwhelming factor that shapes the house.
Designed by PDP London Architect the projects consists of a series of 28 independent homes and villas that form a secure and beautiful little community surrounded by panoramic landscape.
