The chocolate-brown wooden cladding on the first floor adds warmth to the facade and returns inside in the carpentry. Walnut veneer, Oak flooring and grey travertine return throughout the house.
One of the eyecatchers in the house is the glass ‘car cabinet’, always holding one of the stunning classic cars from the owner’s collection – in this shoot it’s a 1967 Maserati Mexico. It’s always a great pleasure if we can integrate a clients’ passion into the architectural and interior design, like we did here with the car.
From the double-height entrance hall towards the living spaces and the garden there is a long sightline to create an open feeling. On the right, you have the glass ‘car cabinet’ as the eye catcher right as you walk in the door. Behind it, you catch a glimpse of the central volume clad in Walnut veneer. On the left, a wooden screen subtly divides the kitchen and the hallway to create some division while keeping the open character of the home. From the living room you have access to the garden via large sliding windows, and creates a visual connection with the kitchen.
The Walnut-clad volume in the dining room contains the sculptural staircase as well as integrated shelving. There, the walnut volume is complimented by the Grand Prix chairs by Arne Jacobsen. The same designer’s iconic Egg chair adds some playful curves to the sharp lines of the house in the living room, and the cognac-coloured leather blends perfectly in the warm, neutral material palette.
The natural stone floors continue outside onto the terraces, blending indoor and outdoor and making this a perfect house to enjoy summer days while entertaining by the pool.
