  • DESIGN :

The house was imported from the US in the 1980s in containers and reconstructed on-site, and the renovation included an addition of a staircase, a swimming pool, and a wide pergola to create an inviting outdoor space. The interior was transformed with the use of unusual colors and materials, and an extensive renovation was done on the wood giving the house a rustic, yet modern country feel. With its cozy vibes and artful design, this house is a perfect blend of past and present.

The floor plan changed completely and an additional staircase leading to the loft was added. The wooden cladding was painted, giving the space a bright and fresh look. The materials used throughout are natural, warm, and light, with split oak parquet flooring fitted on the ground floor. The exposed wooden beam ceiling was covered with plasterboards to give the space a modern look, while the remaining exposed oak beams were whitewashed.

The guest toilets are located next to the entrance. The dining area and kitchen, together with the lounge, form a big open space, overlooking the front yard and the entrance path.

The exterior is very colorful and includes an unusual concrete pool covered in ceramic tiles. The tile colors of blue, light blue, turquoise, and green were chosen to reflect the story of the home: floating between water and sky, embraced by the environment. Also the tiles around the pool are ceramic with a floral pattern in shades of blue and gray against a white backdrop. The deck, wooden pergola, garden furniture, and accessories create a warm, informal outdoor area.
