A misconception that critics often have of modern architecture is that it’s cool and cold. However, the opposite could be argued. A large number of modern designs feature elements that are naturally warm and inviting, such as wood and stone.
The master suite is a blissful retreat that also has an open floor plan. The pitch ceilings add airiness and lightness to the already spacious bedroom and the unique open walk-in closet adds visual interest. The reclaimed wood cladding the walls of the closet are an artistic element that also adds depth and texture to the space. The bathroom, located beyond the closet, is highlighted by a translucent window, which allows the ground-level space to have plenty of light without worrying about others being able to see into the room.
This is not to say that a modern home cannot have pops of color or added character through decor. It is just that it needs to be done in a manner that adds to the architecture rather than takes away from it.
The helical staircase is not just a functional element in the design of the house but also a sculptural feature which increases its visual appeal and overall elegance while remaining space-efficient. Its main role is that of offering access to the two mezzanine platforms. There’s one at either end of the structure and each has its own function. One of the platforms serves as the main sleeping area while the other is a workspace.
