The concept is about creating a living environment that goes far beyond the average and approaches what living is really about: getting the most out of life. Similar to a loft space, the apartment is immediately tangible as a generous, continuous space. It can be apprehended in its entirety from certain vantage points. All functions are accommodated in freely defined areas, which can be closed off by means of sliding doors and heavy curtains, if so desired. In this way, a whole range of new and beautifully framed interior and exterior vistas become apparent. The spacious kitchen with its freestanding cooking block and expansive dining table cater for an enjoyment of the culinary arts and form the main focal point of the apartment. A mirrored ceiling lends impressive definition to the dining area, which is separated from the soft seating landscape by an open room divider. This enables the diner to keep kitchen, living area and terrace in full view.
The sofa is complemented by a capacious pouf, a low table and a pivotable LCD television. The lighting can be adjusted to suit the mood by means of a infinitely variable, dimmable, illuminated ceiling. A freestanding wood-burning fire is a source of cosy warmth in the winter. On the south side, the adjoining small library offers an area for peaceful reading or enjoying a relaxed breakfast à deux. The private part of the apartment is designed around sleeping, working and enjoying the expression on guests’ faces when you show them around. The bedroom and study form a common zone, defined by a circle of oak, encasing wall, floor and ceiling.
The dividing wall has integrated sliding doors to separate the two areas, and simultaneously serves as a headrest for the bed and a back to the desk. The bedroom design gives you the freedom to choose between letting your gaze travel out of the bedroom window or watching a thriller on the built-in LCD television. Behind the bedroom lies the study. A daybed and heavy curtain ensure that guests have comfortable quarters in which to spend the night. The bathroom is lit by natural light through a generous window giving on to the interior of the apartment. After you’ve enjoyed a long soak in the freestanding bathtub or refreshed your senses under the rain shower, the walk-in wardrobe is the perfect place to get ready for the office or dress up for a night out. The flowing room concept is supported by an ingenious composition of materials and colours: the elegant, olive green, epoxy resin-coated floor, oak wood surfaces, white varnished finishes, sensual fabrics and coloured walls engage in an exciting dialogue with one another and, of course, with the apartment’s occupants.
