A variety of constraints played a key role in creating the distinctive and creative on Hoang Van Thai Street Hanoi . With no more than just available for the construction of a modern and space-savvy home for a newly married couple Global Architects & Associates turned towards a gorgeous atrium to open up the modest interior and give the residence an interesting dynamic. Built on a tight budget and in a short duration of time the basic steel structure of the house allowed for the considerable reduction of construction costs.
Much of the original home was poorly lit and filled with awkward spaces and unnecessary internal partitions that blocked any flow of natural light. One of the first things that the architects did was to completely re-imagine the interiors and create a new floor plan where the old living room and entrance were transformed into the main bedroom and the chamfered corners were utilized to the hilt. The new living space and entrance are connected with the re-envisioned bedroom using a painted sliding door that blends into the walls that surround it!
A small dining area next to the large kitchen with ample storage space acts as a cozy ‘social zone’ while the master bedroom with its tufted headboard wall and beautiful bedside pendant lighting oozes luxury. A colorful yet classy kids’ room with corner beds and a contemporary bathroom complete this exquisite residence in Kiev that is both comfy and pleasant.
Inspired by the traditional earthen houses in the region the structure of the house is deceptively simple and traditional yet it offers all the modern comforts one could wish for. A marriage between contrasting styles and architectural principles life here is all about being close to nature.
Modern beach homes have come a long way from their humble background when they were just shabbily made holiday retreats that promised little in terms of luxury. Today a beach house combines contemporary comfort and aesthetics with the alluring charm of waves and sand outside the window in a seamless and mesmerizing fashion.
