Surprising architectural developments are easy to spot – an unusually shaped home immediately catches your attention. This is the case with the Beam House designed by Uri Cohen Architects – a single family residence that seems to have been folded onto itself. Divided in three different parts – private semi private and public – the house bearing the name of its defining feature is a mixture of traditional inspiration and clean modern design.
With beautiful colors and astounding features that could make anyone fall in love with it the entire home has been divided into two equal sections with the help of a horizontal plane that ensures that half of the entire home lies underground and is protected away from the adjacent highway while the other half offers magnificent and unending views of the waves and the rocky coast.
One could observe the vintage fireplace typical of the early twentieth century in the living room. Also it has been maintained beautifully. In fact the whole house has some antique hues to it. Every other accessories and furniture in the room has upheld the element of antiquity and they go very well with this pretty little domicile. The bedroom is the loveliest of the lot though relatively small in size.
Spread across 12000 sq ft of space the mansion created by and of jamesthomas imbibes all those natural elements into it at the same time sports a very modern outlook. Once you step inside you can find that the indoor decor has been done in a way that it holds an earthly sort of sober tone to it. There is not much use of any contrasting color or style and everything appears to be in a neutral and balanced way.
Beautiful chairs like the Corona chair by Poul Volther and the unique Flag Halyard Chair designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1950 found their place in this home ever since Sara bought the Corona chair when she finished high school. In the living room hanging from the ceiling over the creative corner and behind the stainless steel and flag line chair is the Verner Panton Globe pendant that brightens up the space through its design and light.
In contrast the kitchen very simple and the main aim has been to make it more functional. The designer has succeeded in that. Like Andrews’ other projects vintage pendants light fixtures vases and the like are used aplenty here too. In short what you get to see is an amalgamation of all styles and periods. It has won the 2012 CH+D Award winner for Residential Interior Design. The house stands on 3000 sq ft of space.
The kitchen has open shelving lit by a bright yellow Jielde lamp. Each space of this apartment found on Bolig has beautiful details that compose a very personal inviting and museum-like residential space. Which one is your favorite?
