This time, Imagicasa takes you to a holiday home designed for a Brooklyn family near Lake Winnebago. Bruns Architecture and interior designer Lindsay Pauly of the studio A Still Life collaborated on the project. The common thread were clean minimalist lines with a touch of comfort.
The project called O.P. Residence is located near five properties which were also designed by Bruns Architecture and interior designer Lindsay Pauly. Consisting of two connected A-frame structures, the refuge of the young Brooklyn family was created. Using a subdued colour palette with soft tones, the two designers created a minimal yet accessible family home with stunning lake views.
The goal was to maximize connections with the outside.
The design goal was to maximise connections to the outdoors. The facade of the house is clad entirely in black tiles, recycled from rubber tyres, combined with a large white plastered chimney, reflecting the clients' admiration for monochrome interiors. This style was maintained throughout the house. Inside, the many windows provide an abundance of natural light, which is slightly reflected on the matt plaster walls, whose imperfections are clearly visible in the light. Integrated appliances and wooden cabinets set the tone for the spacious kitchen, which can be enjoyed by the whole family. Stained wide oak floorboards are used throughout the house, combined with black steel accents in the staircase and the fittings. Reclaimed wood beams run along the ceiling of several rooms of the house, adding depth to the unpretentious space. Everything used in O.P. Residence was chosen for its beauty and functionality. Through the choice for reclaimed materials and a respectful colour palette, Bruns Architecture and Lindsay Pauly have designed a functional family residence that celebrates its beautiful surroundings.
