Sommelier’s Property by by Architema

“The residence is located in the suburban location of Budapest. Created on a plot that gives a spectacular panorama and steeply slopes on the north side. The beauty of the brilliant white villa lies in the interesting geometrical shapes and the excellent substantial high quality of development. However the modest design are far from becoming typical architectural remedies. The asymmetrically structured facades with their huge glazed surfaces, and the vertically shifted roof levels make each the developing and the interior spaces characteristic.

The architects strived to layout the creating as practical as feasible, and for the sake of the total large architectural top quality, their attention has encompassed even the tiniest specifics of the interior design and style. The fairly linked spaces, the striking zone connections, and the enduring materials, as nicely as the furniture and fittings all develop a delicate, however cosy surroundings for the daily life of the family of 4.

An imposing stairway escalates to the entrance, which opens into a separate guest apartment and to a large contiguous social room with spectacularly elaborated factors. Not only the cityscape but also the well-maintained backyard becomes element of the interior by means of the glass surfaces of the somewhat divided breakfast area, dining hall and residing room. The crossing line between the zones of various functions is seemingly blurred, and the borders are marked with distinctive attractive architectural answers, even so the consequent and delicate material usage unite these regions into a definite whole. The space is divided by the granite grey kitchen with a substantial American walnut fronted wardrobe on its back, or by the brownish grey grained tiles pillar that incorporates the fireplace and splits the duplex living space into separate elements. The latter genuinely prospects our eyesight up to the library and to the 2nd living-space identified on the 1st storey, creating the diverse floors appear linked.

The gallery is nonetheless the most magnificent stage of the house, because by way of its big windows which open into far more instructions it offers a real terrific see. The first storey also accommodates the child rooms and their separate bathrooms, as well as the triad of the bed-and bathroom and the wardrobe of the parents.
The cellar level which also gives room for the garages, is the place for hospitality. Right here a wine shelf that is separated by a glazed wall that keeps the temperature regular and a pizza oven render a trendy style, whereas a customized-created sauna assures a correct soothing knowledge.

The clear interior design and style concept is also prevalent in the aware colour decision: starting up from the cellar the tones turn gradually lighter. The darker shades of the cellar flooring, the rough oak surfaces, the greenish hues, and the gold lining that highlights the individually lit wall recesses characteristic the modern model of the classical wine cellars. The ground floor is dominated by elegant greys and modest drabs, whereas beige, chalk-white and a handful of warmer tones prevail in the intimate spaces of the initial storey. The occasionally bold, at times moderate match of the distinctive components exhibits a genuinely delicate sensibility all shapes, colours and resources integrate in a remarkably all-natural way.”
