Cozy Family Home Artistically Blends Modern And Traditional
Every family has its own idea of how a perfect home should be like. For a family from Switzerland, the perfect home was designed by wohgelmuth & pafumi. It’s a modern and pretty compact home that only offers 150 square meters of living space. The house is located in Seltisberg and its design and architecture are simple and concentrated around basic shapes and forms.
The house has a generous outdoor space that runs along the L-shaped interior living spaces. The project’s main and most important goal was to offer the clients a comfortable family living space that puts together modern and traditional elements using a seamless transition between them. Harmony and balance were at the core the project and of everything related to the interior design.
The modern-traditional combo is noticeable right from the entrance which features a set of minimalist glass doors framed by brick walls and exposed concrete. A wooden bench and a trio of concrete planters complete the bohemian and cozy image of the perfect family home.
The interior is bright and open, with full-height windows that let in lots of natural light and a very beautiful palette of materials and colors. The designers used an array of earthy shades combined with neutrals in order to induce a pleasant and inviting ambiance. The furnishings are meant to be comfortable and functional, with a focus on simplicity.
The kitchen is white and open, featuring the staircase on one side. Instead of a tiled backsplash, it has a beautiful horizontal window that offers a relaxing view of the green landscape unfolding in front of it. All the furniture is white including the counters and the island, being complemented by the modern black appliances and matching window frame.
The most colorful part of the open floor plan is the dining area which has a simple metal and wood table surrounded by upholstered chairs, each featuring a different and rich color as well as by a matching L-shaped bench.
The staircase puts the spotlight on the pure nature of the materials used in its design. The combination of wood and concrete is a very inspired one. The materials complement each other with their contrasting textures and colors.
The upstairs sections is a private zone which houses the bedroom and a smaller lounge area. The bedroom is pretty bohemian with a platform bed and very cozy and welcoming, featuring a wood-paneled accent wall, a platform bed, an oversized painting on a wall and a freestanding oval tub.
