The residents of this house wanted an experience in which they can feel connected to nature when they enter the house. The house is dominated by wood and shades of white to give it a charming tropical ambiance. The potted plants add a new color as well as texture to the entire setting, however, their most important contribution is the beautiful vitality they bring into the space to give the users a very welcoming entrance.
The best feature of this house is the nice open plan layout that it offers to its residents. Unlike a typical entrance which usually feels small and restricted, this entrance allows the users a spacious feel when they step into the house. The sleek metal staircase adds further charm and sleekness to the entire space.
The architects of this house have designed the entrance in such a way that the staircase acts more like a sculptural element than a mere transition structure. The combination of the exposed concrete with the black river-washed granite looks splendid while the white pebbles and indoor potted plants add further charm to the entire setting. We also loved how a single point source of artificial light is used as a focal point to bring life to the unused space below the staircase.
The soul of this entrance is its sleek backlighting installed on the ceiling as well as the floor. The beige colored monotonous setting gives the entrance a very soothing and sophisticated feel while the addition of light imparts life and grace to the overall setting.
This entrance relies heavily on the quality of natural light to enhance its ambiance. Accordingly, the architects have provided the entrance with large openings and slits that allow in the wonderful natural light as well as ventilation. We also loved the nice combination of wood and exposed brickwork that gives the space a charming and inviting appeal.
