Based at the concept of “less is more”, mode:lina office designed Beam&Block House, a contemporary 140 sqm house in Poznań, Poland displaying clever design solutions. Scandinavian style, clients’ favorite, is represented by materials like raw concrete and wood. White and dark grey shades with ubiquitous energetic yellow color add to the combo. Paintings, designer furniture and accessories take the heart stage, because the owners made it clear they wanted a house that reflected their artistic personalities: “We don’t want the entire room to be about TV. We’ve got some books, some albums also, it’d be nice to show them. Fireplace same as TV – we would like it nevertheless it has to be discreet.” Front room space used to be again dictated by a minimalistic attitude..
The space under the steps was maximized – there’s even a dog house! Sliding doors and their mirror surface offer the appearance of a generously-sized room. An island was a dream for the kitchen area – it truly is perfect for the owners’ quick meals: “During working days our breakfast is ultra fast (She doesn’t eat anything, he eats while leaving house). We celebrate weekend meals, that’s why we want a major dining table.” Bedroom is hooked up with wardrobe. Again, raw materials and grey shades are combined with energetic yellow color, matching the bottom floor. [Photos and data provided via e-mail by mode:lina office]
