A room on the mansard floor of a 3-story house was completely neglected and used as a storing place for old things and as a walk-through for the rest of the house.
The clients wanted this room to be turned into a comfortable space where they could spend time together in quiet, tranquility, and without children. The space was also envisioned as a work place, a storage space, and to provide sleeping accommodations for guests.
Any family with little kids faces problems in finding time for tranquility and rest, so our objective was to create a space where one would be able to relax and rest in just a couple of minutes.
With this in mind, we decided to create an interior meeting the following objectives. Firstly, the room should be totally different from the interior of the rest of the house, with a style that is unexpected for the clients and even contradict their requests on style. Second, the interior should tune a person to a calm and regular rhythm. Following these principles, we created a very laconic space, full of light and having nothing within access. The interior is focused on a relaxed leisure area around the chimney.
We changed the layout and the room ceased being a walk-through for the rest of the house. We cleaned the floor from all unnecessary partition walls, removed the poles of lower roof pitches, and removed the ceiling floor in order to open the highest floor with its beautiful joists. A room beside the furnace chimney was designed for storage. To the left, under the roof, there is a bar bench top, where one can drink tea or wine. All along the facade window there is a wide bench top for working.
The rest area is the central space of the room. In the center there is a fireplace with wide, comfortable seats around it. From three sides the area is surrounded by stacks for books and small objects.
We used simple natural materials and colors, a lot of warm LED illumination, and an abundance of vegetation. The project is made for << COTTAGE SOLUTION >> (" NTV Broadcasting Company ")
