Julissa Xirah. Modern Interior Design. August 29th , 2017.
This stylish and bright apartment belongs to a young girl with her daughter. The hostess asked the studio ALLARSTDESIGN after received the keys and it’s the issue of repair. Customer once insisted on the interior – in which everything must be red, slowly and surely, we exclude too much of this color. We added a lot of light metal and textured coatings.
The house includes three storeys accommodating three en-suite guest suites on the ground floor, with a plant area and a staff flatlet at the rear. The first floor is the main living level, with a large living room and dining room opening to a covered and uncovered pool terrace. The kitchen is positioned to enjoy views through the glass roof towards Lion’s Head. The entrance hall is accessed by gentle steps from Head Road preceded by a glass-roofed external lobby space. The second floor accommodates the master bedroom, dressing room and a light-filled en-suite with views over the pool below.
A big challenge was to make it all cozy and not sterile looking, so I used a lot of natural elements and finishes (wood, wool, woven natural fibers), as well as a few select family pieces.Overall I think we did achieve our goal. The house feels really clean and minimal, but still warm even during Chicago winters.My favorite part of our home is definitely the wood burning fireplace.When it’s cold out, we love to light a fire and sit in the living room reading, or drinking wine and playing Cards Against Humanity with our friends
This five-floor residence is constructed within the fixed footprint of an existing three-story townhouse on a typically narrow infill Manhattan plot, sharing party walls with the adjacent houses. The clients asked for loft-like spaces, open and filled with light but also private – exactly the opposite of a standard NYC row house, with its street-side windows usually curtained or shuttered from the eyes of passers-by.
Movements, spaces and volumes occur to fulfill various functional requirements through the architectural manipulation of materials, details and finishes. Two equal halves performing public and private functions are employed throughout horizontally and vertically.
