A house where light plays a major role

How to practically furnish an interior with a living room 8 meters high? The answer to this question can be found in a new project by NABOO STUDIO.

Impressive space

The house has two floors and lots of glazing. Particularly spectacular is the eight-meter high, living area. The space is flooded with daylight streaming in through giant windows. The living room connects to the dining room and kitchen, creating a spacious living area. Also worth noting are the striking lamps. Their modern, geometric, yet lavish form is a highlight of this space. The investors wanted the focal point of the kitchen to be an elaborate island with seating all around. Right next to it is a pantry. In addition, the first floor of the house still houses a study, a guest bathroom, an entrance hall with a dressing room, and a technical area with a garage.

A glimpse into the future

The first floor of the house required a change in the layout of the walls compared to the developer's plan, so that a bedroom could be created, combined with a dressing room and a spacious bathroom equipped with a free-standing bathtub. This floor was also designed to accommodate a guest bedroom with a bathroom and a children's room. The latter room was designed a bit upscale, as the owners do not yet have a child - but plan to have one. An interesting nook is a mezzanine with transparent glass barriers, located by the stairs, overlooking the lounge area on the first floor. Equipped with two comfortable armchairs, it creates an ideal place for intimate conversation.

A game of subtleties

An unquestionable advantage of this house is the above-average height of the rooms: from four to five meters, while the living room is as high as eight. This gives a feeling of spaciousness, which is further enhanced by the introduction of transparent and shiny and reflective elements. Mirrored surfaces "catch" the sun's rays coming through the large windows, making the whole interior appear luminous as a result. This play of light is enhanced by the subtle color scheme of the arrangement. It is dominated by various shades of gray. Ascetically gray, yet emanating coziness, velour curtains fall in soft folds to the floor and break the geometric austerity of the design. For the bedroom, in addition to the curtains, the designers also planned curtains to guarantee the occupants a greater sense of privacy. There are no intense colors throughout the project; the muted color scheme is enlivened only by the greenery of the plants - visible outside through the windows and those brought inside, growing in spacious gray pots.

Natural materials

Elegance in subdued colors, and preferably gray juxtaposed with elements of dark wood - this is how the investors saw the interior of their house. So the designers from NABOO STUDIO opted for natural materials, primarily wood and stone. The former was envisaged to cover the floors in the form of wide, long planks of oiled and brushed oak; parts of the walls, which were lined with oak veneer stained dark walnut, the steps of the staircase and the implementation of the kitchen building. As for thesecond material, the designers suggested milled stone and quartz sinters. For the floors and walls in the bathrooms, sinters in a pebbled finish were chosen, making the surface of the large-format board look like natural stone.

Modern solutions

A building automation system was used throughout the house. Due to its height, lighting intensity calculations had to be made for each room. In the end, it was decided on a solution where some of the lamps light up on motion sensors, while all of them have a built-in dimming system. Also controlled automatically are interior blinds, installed in all windows in the house. Large glazing ensures adequate lighting in the room and the ability to enjoy an uninterrupted view of the greenery outside the window. Such windows, however, can pose difficulties when it comes to choosing decorations. A solution that works great is an electric curtain rod system. Thanks to it, we don't have to move heavy curtains or drapes ourselves, an automatic rail system does it for us, and, properly selected, it will lift a curtain weighing up to 60 kg.
