Belgian studio Cocoon Architecten started from an existing farmhouse in Genk Belgium and constructed a modern oasis of comfort prepared to take on a new lifestyle. The Framework House now displays the existing building and an additional black volume facing the street.
Schnieders is but not satisfied with the small size of the bathroom and the style of the kitchen. He also does not like the ceiling fans. But we feel that the fans are just alright in terms of the traditional accessories the house has been adorned with. Well he is a man who believes that even if a space is very temporary it should feel like our own otherwise we will be miserable. May be that is why he is so cynical about certain aspects of the house. We wish him and his family that their house under renovation would truly be a dream home.
Vegetation is put into use in the most subtlest and beautiful way. The dining room has got a bench seat on one side of the table that maximizes space. A lavishly arranged kid’s room sports large paintings that feature lyrics of Madonna’s “Little Star” acts and they are show stopping pieces.
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.
Accompanied by the Louis Poulsen Panthella Floor Lamp this pendant light acts more like a floor lamp and balances the design. Stretched over a wooden frame the Moments pattern from Marimekko fabrics was painted in neon colors. The comfy couch is lit from another beautifully designed piece – the AJ wall lamp by Arne Jacobsen also seen in the bedroom.
