Japanese design and architecture have always found ways to combine natural goodness and tranquility with an innate sense of minimalism. It is only in the last few decades that the West has started to realize the many benefits of this approach and while this expansive might not exactly borrow from the design elements of the Far East it still seems to showcase the same core principles.
Color is a rarity inside this transformed Belgian home with warm wooden tones providing the necessary contrast even while playing into the overall ‘modern-minimal’ look. The rejigged floor plan places the kitchen in the spacious attic with the bedroom and bathroom on the lower level opening up towards the pool and garden area.
By altering the internal layout the new kitchen and dining area is connected with the small garden outside even as skylights and bespoke window features bring in ample sunlight.
With white being the color of choice inside this Scandinavian-modern living space the light-filled setting seems even more cheerful and elegant. Smart contemporary décor is combined with timeless midcentury pieces like the Eames rocker to fashion a relaxed and breezy interior.
But the beautiful in takes a completely different approach as it embraces the architectural style of classic European Country estates in order to move away from the beaten path. Elegant and exquisite the luxurious residence is set on a vast that sits in a panoramic valley surrounded by majestic mountains. Designed by Poss Architecture the ‘intentionally formal’ form of the home aims to contrast the soothing landscape around it.
