There is a comfortable office area for work that does not invade the floor space with its tight against the wall profile. Stacks of books near one of the support columns form an impromptu library sans shelves. A strategically placed white monolith forma a separation of the living room from the rest of the open areas as well as providing for additional display area on top of it.
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.
This glass concept home is created by Italian design firm Santambrogio. Carlo Santambrogio and designer Ennio Arosio have said that it was the desire of the client to build it completely out of glass. Located in Milan the house sits in the middle of a wood clearing.
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.
The other side of the black wall facing the street is white and flooded with light from above where a long and narrow skylight ensures that natural light will flood the adjacent living space separated by a glass wall. Inside this ample space the living continues with a dining/cooking area. There is an expansive food preparation area that should provide enough room for any size feast.
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 interior is awe-inspiring. A relatively larger courtyard in the exact middle complements the whole design. Here the actual ground is maintained as such along with the trees. The pillars in black are another spectacular feature. Following a style that is quite simple and inviting the house uses white as the basic hue while off white and cream add support.
