Since the couple worked from home incorporating a full-fledged home office that offered privacy and smart functionality was another important part of the home’s design. Built on a tight budget by KEM STUDIO the inviting house uses a white and wood color palette to usher in a sense of harmony even while inviting the outdoors inside.
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.
Wood is the primary material of choice on the inside with the office oozing a distinct modern style with edgy industrial overtones. Specifically designated workspaces are combined with sweeping meeting zones which include both formal and informal ones.
Designed by Cheng Franco Arquitectos it is the innovative use of corten steel panels for the upper cantilevered levels that catches your attentions instantly. The steel panels give the holiday home a dynamic colorful and texturally vibrant exterior even as concrete acts as the more stoic counterpart.
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.
