The construction
A 1.2 meter high concrete platform was poured on site to make the base of the building. The contracture used the American system: the construction of wooden walls were pre-fabricated in the factory and brought for assembly on site on the concrete surface. All the walls are plaster on the interior side with a high thermal insulation.

The furniture
The furniture was specially designed according to the total concept. In the kitchen we introduced colors using natural Birch wood boxes and colorful doors and different size legs so the design was made to look very airy and playful rather than a traditional looking –heavy feeling kitchen. The TV cupboard continues the design with its colorful boxy design.

The primary intention for the interior design was to create a home away from home, without taking it too seriously and feel comfortable to be yourself and just relax.
