Step inside and one sees a fusion of the dramatic and the understated the grand and the minimalist as a large expansive living area is draped in a variety of finishes that add subtle contrast to the breezy space. The lower level of the house contains the living area kitchen and dining space and natural light from the top floor floods into this space thanks to a large central opening.
Designed by UN Studio and nestled on an unspoiled coastal site in northern the unique contemporary home is surrounded by a wooden area on one side and polder on the other. This provided the architects the perfect opportunity to conjure up and bring to life an exclusive residence that offers captivating view of the scenery without ever seeming far too overwhelming.
Designed by Finney the charm of curved walls does not end there as the interior also offers a healthy dose of curvy masterpieces that celebrate the minimalism of the home while ushering in geometric contrast. White is the color of choice inside with the living area kitchen and dining room opening up towards the rear garden.
But as you move through the home a brick and glass ‘tunnel’ connects the old existing residence with a standalone modern addition creating a seamless transition between the past and the future! Designed by MODO this unique approach brings much more than mere renewed aesthetics with natural light flooding through the renovated interior.
But that is not the end of surprises at this awesome Belgian home as a sloped green roof that seems like an extension of the garden landscape ensures that the structure completely blends in with its backdrop.
With a low-slung design and smart sliding glass doors one finds the transition from the exterior to the living space almost seamless and a large concrete patio makes this an even more effortless affair. A carefully curated and stacked wall of milled lumber finished with glossy varnish shapes the entrance giving the residence a fabulous fun architectural feature.
Finding the balance between the right style functionality and smart utilization of space is often the biggest challenge when designing a modern home. Add to this the demands placed by unusually heavy snowfall and you need a structure that can withstand the rough weather while creating a relaxing contemporary living environment. N
