Searching at this stairwell it’;s difficult to believe that it is constructed from concrete, but it most definitely is. The concrete structure was then covered in wood with no visible joints and with the solid wood balustrade the final impact is one particular of contemporary art that just takes place to be the way the owners get to their master suite. The staircase and other functions within the Villa Gajdekova are style collaborations amongst Studio BF Archi & Style with architect Boris Fiolic leading the project and Croatia’;s Internova Interior Design as the makers of the bespoke styles utilised within the villa such as this staircase.
The exterior of the Villa Gajdekova, positioned in Croatia, hints at the statement styles withing by the exciting layout of the concrete pads that are lined with twinkling lings to guide the visitor to the front entrance. The façade of the developing, with its huge expanses of glass offer peaks into the aesthetic within, but it is not until you really enter the developing that the full influence of the clean lined design and style aesthetic envelopes the visitor like a warm and cozy blanket.
The American Walnut veneer clad foyer of the villa exemplifies the style that Studio BF is ideal recognized for and right here, the walnut creates a luxurious backdrop that is kept light and vibrant by means of the use of nicely placed lighting, including the spotlights within the stairwell niche. Once in the foyer, the visitor can travel upstairs into the primary living location or turn proper, exactly where the library and office space are positioned.
The bookshelves within the library continue the walnut theme used extensively on this floor, nonetheless, the workplace region is kept to a white palette with the walls and furnishings. There are two office locations, one that is a private perform space just to the left of the library and a far more social one particular further into the space.
The social station inside the workplace boasts big expanses of glass that look out towards the garden and two white tables – of diverse sizes – surrounded by ghost chairs. The asymmetry of the two tables and the selection of Lucite chairs keeps this space each uncluttered for concentrate, and informal for creative inspiration.
The library also characteristics clear glass by way of the entry from the foyer, but here, the glass is employed to develop a connection to the rest of the residence rather then a social atmosphere. Wrapping the room in wood tones and soft grey seating permits the user of the library to feel comfortable, cozy and reflective as they peruse the book of their option.
When its time to leave function behind and get pleasure from the comforts of property life, the walnut stairwell leads the way from the foyer to the social volume. While walnut is a dark wood, it glows with a peaceful appeal from the meticulously selected locations of the accent lighting. The lighting not only delivers moments of lightness against the dark wood, but also delivers darker shades of shadow for a dynamic and geometric appeal.
The social level of the home is kept to an open floor strategy with lighting employed as the only zone definer. Wrapped in glass to make the very best use of the views and kept to a neutral colour palette, the circular staircase creates a statement of sophisticated grace with its gentle swooping curves. As even though to emphasize the artistic high quality of the stairwell, an understated – but big – globular sculpture poses on a base amongst the windows and under the stairwell and all the lighting employed inside this level repeats the curvilinear design components of each art types.
Even though the stairwell is an organic formation created out of concrete and wood, the globular sculpture is a metallic piece based on geometry with its abstracted cubism influence.
The stairs incorporate a closed balustrade of vertical walnut graining even though the underside characteristics the walnut grain following the curves of the stairs. The combination of the two directions adds a layer of fluidity to the stairwell that is additional enhanced by the ever changing shadows from the walls of glass that wrap it.
The accurate art of the stairwell is best appreciated from above looking down.
Whilst the greatest view of the stairs might be from above, that view is reserved for the private zone as the stairs lead up to the Master Suite without having any separation. This bedroom really is a room with a view, each organic and man-created.
