Utilizing a timber frame from a nineteenth-century barn and turning it into a modern home that can brave the chilly winters of the is a tough and tricky task indeed. But this is precisely what the ingenious folks from Kimberly Peck Architect accomplished as they gave shape to the environmentally conscious.
The staircase is often viewed as just a functional addition and few homeowners really pay attention to the aesthetic style it delivers. Fewer actually turn the stairway into the focal point of the sparkling modern home and let it define the ambiance of the interior. Accomplishing this with refined contemporary panache is the lovely South designed by Mitsuori Architects and this stunning abode places emphasis on a posh multi-zone family setting. The double-story terrace house was revamped and refurbished to bring in a trendier look and its sculpted timber stairs end up being the showstopper!
This tranquil floating home may just be a concept but we hope that Singapore-based architect Dymitr Malcewcan brings his vision to life soon. We can certainly picture ourselves taking advantage of its giant glass walls open concept kitchen and living room and out-of-this-world roof terrace.
The refined appeal of the summer house comes from the purity of its design and the innate minimalism that has made Danish design so endearing to the world. Every little detail is carefully curated and the decor kept as unfussy as possible to accentuate this idea of frugality and functionality.
The showstopper in this minimal living room is the American Oak sliding panel edged in bronze that hides the television with ease. At the touch of a button it gently gives way to the entertainment hub in the living room when needed and epitomizes the minimal style of the living room.
