Have you ever come across a ? Not those ones which poses just huge glass walls or chambers but an apartment made completely of glass. Well here is one! This is no movie set or any kind of art object; it is in fact a residence. I can imagine your amazement.
The construction of the house got completed last year and accounts for 3270 sq ft of space. The glass windows form a connection between the outdoor and the indoor. As you can see the building is wrapped in the lush embrace of the vegetation all around and the house merges into the surroundings and at the same time stands out too.
The middle aged couple bought the whole house as two different apartment units and the new combined house has two living rooms with an entrance right in the middle. Dividing the whole space into two major portions is the entrance with the right side assigned for private space. An exotic office space is another attraction. The master bedroom in white color resembles some suite in a big shot hotel while kitchen and the kitchen island on the left side are chic and modern.
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.
Stools sofas coffee tables and even rugs and carpets complement the entire tone of the residence. The choice of the lamps and pendants are also significant since they have key roles in imparting the earthy flavor to the building. The exquisite wooden spiral staircase completes the contemporary design.
The design of the ceilings and the walls remind of the vibrant 70s or 80s. Decorations are not just the features that get emphasis here the house also fulfills the demands of all the residents. Designed by Turkish studio Yazgan Design Architecture the has employed all those elements that go well with the climate of Ankara.
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.
