You will achieve the best interior design result when the designer works on the project from its inception – from the basic architectural plans. He could incorporate into the project his suggestions and comments which would work well in his view, given the convenience and preferences of the locals.
Of course, there are studios that carry out a “rough” project and interior design at the same time. In the case of the new building in Törökbálint near Budapest, interior designer Tamás Szén Molnár was already working on the architectural plans. A young couple looking for land in the city longs for a family home of about 160 square metres.
Transformation of an older functional apartment: do not expect any sterility or monotony!
According to their ideas, the result was a stylish, bright and cheerful home – simply fun and comfortable. The interior architect had the opportunity to start working on the interior appearance of the house at the time of the architectural plans, so that he could incorporate alterations into the project before construction began. The result was better.
The kitchen is the heart of the home
For clients, it is a very important place where they spend a lot of time, both together and alone – the kitchen. Cooking plays an important role in their lives. Therefore, special detailed requirements for kitchen and dining room equipment were also part of their basic list of what should be in the house.
Modern systems and manual solutions
Of course, they also thought about the future. As they plan the offspring, they primarily had to have the kitchen, dining room, and living room function as a single space and the dining room could be easily expanded. Given the relatively small space available due to these requirements, the kitchen was given an unusual design.
Timeless Apartment in Koliba: Modern minimalist style is made more fun by choosing natural materials and colors
Regarding every detail, the latest mechanical and intelligent systems are integrated into the house: from the unique drying system in the laundry to the room. An interesting solution is to place basins in one of the bathrooms – the back wall serves as a shower screen, which is located on the opposite side of the sinks.
Fun geometry in gray and mustard
Half of the building is underground. Therefore, the designer preferred details that allow natural light and glass to enter the interior. The bathroom door is also made of glass. In terms of color and style used, he got a free hand from customers. The entire interior looks playful, excelling in the frequent use of geometric shapes and the combination of gray and mustard. Wooden surfaces, including stairs, with a touch of mustard color, create harmony. Spaces feature contemporary posters, paintings, and custom prints on the walls.
The selected lighting in the interior is functional and irreplaceable in the design. Note the different types of lamps – from wall “panels”, passing through the silver “poppy” in the corner of the bathroom by the mirror, to a lamp of unusual shape above the dining table. However, here you will find a noticeably more interesting detail – in almost every photo.
