Oly Via. Living Room. August 27th , 2017.
The teenager that lives in this South African home has an entertainment room that would make Tony Hawk proud. Inhouse Brand Architects outfitted the space with a concrete skate bowl, inspired by a skate park in London, according to Visi Magazine. The design team amped up the wow factor with custom artwork by street artist Jack Fox covering the walls.
At the core of it all, a custom yellow sofa that was developed on site adds brightness and storage. The matching ottoman can be turned into a small coffee table. The white chimney with its powerful rustic character adds to the eclectic atmosphere. During the day, natural lighting floods the space through a traditional window that’s painted blue.
