Instead of creating rigid square rooms the living area embraces the natural contours of the home as a polygon-shape wall makes its presence felt. The sitting area and TV room at the front contains a comfy couch in black; an addition that anchors the light and breezy interior.
On the other side of the TV wall is another small informal relaxation space along with custom shelving a small kitchen dining area and home office zone. Each and every room of the house embraces minimalism with a dash of inviting warmth even as clever change in flooring and lighting delineates spaces without visual fragmentation.
Designed by architect Cristián Izquierdo this remarkable House in Morrillos Chile is made entirely in pinewood. In a seasonal cabin constructed to accommodate up to three couples the exposed expansive pinewood offers a clean verging on sterile environment. And yet the result is both inviting and engaging.
We are often boxed in by traditional approach to design and this often means the same template for a contemporary home is repeated all over the globe without considering the specific needs of each site.
It is this blank canvas that has been used creatively to combine comfortable modern décor carefully selected Mid-century accents and a few curated woodsy furniture pieces. The result is a smart inviting and chic home where functionality and aesthetics go hand-in-hand.
