With a curvaceous silhouette reminiscent of a sail Steeltec37’s modular Aqua Floathome brings a distinct nautical vibe to Germany’s Lusatian Lake District. But don’t mistake it for a rusty dinghy. The metal and glass abode offers up the latest in lake-top luxury with sleek finishes and top-of-the-line modern furnishings.
The undulating terrain of the plot meant that Felipe Bueno & Alexandre Bueno had to create a lower wing that contained the laundry cellar and garage while providing the top level with a base at uniform height. A green wall that took shape in the garden outside flows into the living room as well and brings along with it both natural freshness and ventilation.
One of the most distinctive features of the home is its that is covered in steel and ushers in an air of timelessness to an otherwise modern structure. Turning a normal home in a multi-level residence with a lovely attic the design of the house by Dorrington Atcheson Architects fuses a distinct silhouette with seamless modern ergonomics.
On the inside partitions are kept to a bare minimum as an open floor plan visually connects the kitchen the dining space and the family zone. One can see industrial-style lighting and glass partitions with dark metallic frames throughout the residence while understated contemporary décor fills each room. Lighting plays a major role in the overall ambiance of the home with natural ventilation flowing from one room to the next. Geometric tiles in the kitchen add pattern to the space while throw pillows and bedding bring color to the minimal bedroom in white.
Despite its playful use of colors such as pink yellow red green and orange in different rooms the revamped home has a distinct and clean contemporary style. The backdrop in each room is kept as neutral as possible and black wood floors instantly make their presence felt in this light and airy setting. Ample natural ventilation a touch of relaxed minimalism in the air and interesting decor choices turn the modern makeover into an exciting affair.
A modular sofa in the living room an eclectic blend of chairs in the dining room and a delightful window with multi-colored brilliance in the stairwell delight and surprise you. The lower level of the residence contains the public areas while the top floor houses the kids’ bedrooms along with the master bedroom and bathrooms.
Adding to the sheen of the steel façade are framed accent panels in perforated aluminum clad in bright red. The entry of the renovated home also features a tinge of red while the living area bedrooms and bathrooms showcase smart red accents. This creates a visual connection between the interior and the exterior despite the use of contrasting materials. Split into three levels the lowest floor houses a rental while the top two levels make up the owner’s duplex. The second level contains the living area kitchen dining space and home office / TV room of the duplex and the top floor houses the master suite along with additional bedrooms and bathrooms.
