Barcelona-based architecture studio Ferrolan LAB designed a small narrow and long residential structure used by a family as their permanent residence. Measuring 12 feet by 82 feet the contemporary home located in Barcelona Spain challenged the architects to construct a comfortable vertically designed collection of spaces.
The ground floor is occupied by the living spaces and kitchen while the second floor shelters the private areas- bedrooms and bathrooms. A rooftop garden completes the green space in the garden and offers a modern eco-friendly feature.
There isn’t any doubt that the designers have shown incredible attention to colors fabrics and even the way furniture is arranged. Each room comes with its own terrace. The bedrooms and bathrooms are located on the upper floor and they overlook a pond that extends around the edge of the central patio reflecting the sky. The front façade has been constructed against the backdrop of the surrounding countryside and the view from each room is magical. Don’t you agree with us when we call the house mesmerizing?
Designed by architect Desmond Ong on a minimalist concept the Singapore residence has had its wall removed so as to provide the feel of open space. It is light airy and seemingly spacious. By avoiding bulky interiors and furniture the design has been given a sense of added openness. Usage of light colors and large glass windows gives also adds to large space outlook. The bedrooms and the bathroom designs are kept very simple while the open glass windows provide fro a green view outside.
Further cooling is provided by wooden paneling given at intervals along the tall walls. The interior looks as wonderful as exterior. Very beautiful and expensive furniture are just another brilliant treat to your eyes. The house gets its design after taking positional environmental and climatic factors into consideration. The designers seem to have taken extra care to provide a good amount of privacy.
The blocks have then been interconnected by an open staircase. The front elevation of the house is kept off sight from street. The huge door welcomes you to the inner wonders. The entrance leads you to a beautiful bluish pool which is near to entrance of the building. Right at the middle of the structure is a double height space which acts as a corridor to the rest of the house.
