A stylish and compact little bookshelf was carved out on the wall adjacent to a stylish sleek and modern rectangular fireplace. The splashes of bright orange here and there on the unique stools and couch cushions along with the subtle use of orange in the patio furniture that is visually connected to the living space ensures that there is no sense of blandness in this modern makeover.
My favorite is the kid’s bedroom which in contrast is lavishly decorated and appears like a crowded space full of colors and energy. The outdoor seating arrangement is so cool with the simplicity of the furniture and the lamp shades. Though everything here appears quite simple a lot of effort has been taken to attain the perfection. So that is a perfect example of a countryside home in Ireland. Already longing for one?
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.
All these for an unbelievable $21.8 million price tag which makes it (perhaps) the most expensive one-bedroom apartment in the world. So let’s say money aren’t a problem do you think such large single bedroom houses — 4434 sq ft (that’s roughly 412 square meters) — are a disadvantage or are they really good to live in? I reckon the building is monumental and highly appealing.
Wooden ceilings make the whole area so admirable and so do the brick walls. Metal rods that hold the lighting props which run across on the ceilings are kept exposed. The flooring looks as if it has been made to reflect the ceiling while the pillars sport a rustic look and the multi-paned windows have helped it maintain the elegance.
Situated next to the owner’s farm this modern display of architecture features a utility wall containing the AC unit storage and bathrooms placed between the public and semi-public programs. A beautiful detail in the living room captures the attention of first time visitors – the part where the exterior architecture forms a bullet shaped nook corresponds to the creative seating unit in the open space living area reminiscent of comfortable lounging chairs.
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.
