Using pinewood in this smart residential project Jersey City-based Jeff Jordan Architects created a well-ordered bright and spacious interior. The pinewood’s visual impact is both soothing and serene. As a result the project offers a clear-cut example of pine’s efficacy in creating clean modern and aesthetic spaces.
As you head inside you will come across both the formal dining room with its more stoic presence and the informal dining space with sofa style seating geo style pendant lighting and plenty of warmth.
Concrete is the material off choice on the inside with the three inimitable curved ceiling structures in raw concrete standing in contrast to the polished concrete floor. The repetitive concrete ‘vaults’ capture the Northern sunlight beautifully and fill the interior with bright daylight.
This also further ushered in natural light and spaces of the original Victorian Residence that were previously dark now feel cheerful and inviting. The refurbished interior feels both contemporary and classic with the old gently transitioning into the new!
When creating the interior for this five-storey townhouse architectural studio MAATworks referenced the quintessential wooden homes found across Scandinavia. Pinewood-covered walls and ceilings lend to the home’s smart modern Scandinavian charm. The result is a bright open and welcoming abode.
The lush green forest around the residence is left largely untouched and a sensitive approach to building the house ensured that damage of construction was as minimal as possible.
There is more though here as a spacious meeting room conference areas a kitchen dining informal meeting areas and a stunning central ‘events space’ find room inside this ingenious new office.
