Outside In: When luxury is seamless and natural

i29 interior architects design a sustainable and spacious home that blurs the lines between interior and exterior space…

This generous villa is designed for a family of four, allowing for all rooms to be horizontally connected.  A lush green patio takes centre-stage in the living area as floor-to-ceiling sliding doors offer open access to the surrounding garden and swimming pool.

The design approach is purest. Modest materials define a luxurious quality, without being pretentious. The biggest quality of this house is the harmonious integration of interior and exterior to the smallest details. Large wooden surfaces are applied throughout the house to connect the different areas. Cabinets, wardrobes, walls, sliding doors, beds are made of the same wood and finish for unity and connection.

In fact, to ensure seamlessness and coherence, cabinets, kitchens, and furniture are custom designed and made to measure following the architectural layout.

The all black brick facades hide and show its natural surroundings, and large integrated planters with greenery are integrated right at the frontside of the building. The house is built for effective use of energy, with a geothermal energy storage, a heat pump, and solar collectors on the roof. The goal was to connect the inside with the outside naturally.

Paradoxically, this home has many open views and transparency in the facades, at the same time, feels private and protected by the lush green landscape design and the smart arrangement of its layout. A perfect retreat to spend your time inside and outside. The sober and pure material palette brings about a relaxed atmosphere of natural luxury.
