A big part of modern home design is finding that balance between complete privacy and an ability to interact with the surroundings and enjoy the outdoors without any hindrance. Bringing these two contrasting worlds together in an uncomplicated and effective fashion is the TSJ 01 House designed by Studio Gabriel Garbin Arquitetura in Brazil.
By combining beautiful wooden surfaces with a serene white backdrop one can achieve textural and visual contrast without altering the contemporary appeal of the home. It is precisely this decorating principle that Susanna Cots Interior Design showcases with the design of a light-filled and cheerful contemporary residence in Spain.
Designed by this Costa Rican residence has a break between its two main structures which allows gusty winds to pass through without affecting the life indoors too much. Even the top level bedrooms are protected from harsh windy conditions using a windbreaker and a curved façade that cleverly deflects the airflow.
The house has been designed to act both as a serene and rejuvenating personal hub and an open elegant party space with views that enchant friends and family. Nature undoubtedly is the protagonist here with the minimal interior glass walls and the outdoor deck with sunken seating and concrete fireplace creating the perfect living environment. Private areas of the house are carefully tucked away on the top level which is connected to the living area using a cleverly concealed stairway.
Few things are as soothing as coming back home after a long hard day opening those drapes or stepping out onto the poolside deck and finding the sight of a vast blue ocean greeting your with serenity!
The placement of each element adds to the overall aura of the house even as the private entry leads to an open plan interior that holds the kitchen and dining. A large fireplace becomes the focal point of the living area where the decorating style is distinctly minimal. adopted an interior design that relied on simplicity clean refined finishes and a touch of textural contrast.
