Tatarko tells that the renovation of their house is an ongoing project and that inspiration from Houzz and its large collection of images was a key aspect in all of it. (And we are not surprised at all!)
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.
It has also got a fully-closed courtyard with large glass windows is another element of attraction. The flooring is mostly wooden. Imported stones are also used. Hiroshi Senju portraits decorate the walls. And furniture pieces have been designed by Cecotti Collezioni which is why they are so impressive.
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.
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.
Design classics can be found in many homes but this particular residential space gathers a handful of classic furniture items in just 90 square feet. The apartment is shared by Sara Devantier and Sune Olse a couple permanently in love with furniture design.
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.
