- Architecture & development
The dynamics of architecture and interior never lie. With a continuous undertone of heavy minimalism this home in Munich, Germany came to be. Monochrome and meant for a young couple with a soft spot for functional simplicity and a modern design, that is how you immediately have a clear image of this memorable home.
Interior designer Lyubov Orlova knew what she wanted when she began this project. She found it logical to forge elegance and functionality, but only in a minimalistic setting. The white colour palette was a first starting point for this, after which the inclusion of furniture with round contours quickly made it more concrete. In the living room, your eye goes out to the sofa, which already promises a high level of comfort on a visual level alone and stands in front of a blank wall on which a projector can show film images. A special detail is that this wall is curved as well, which again highlights the preference for soft shapes. Wooden panels bring some texture to the design and the spacious windows simultaneously create an excellent view and a lot of entering daylight. Our attention also goes out to the shape of the spiral staircase in the room between the living area and the entrance hall. The spinning, sculptural architecture serves both an aesthetic and a functional goal. Furthermore, you find a second sofa here: ideal to sit down for a moment after entering the home. Before you are heading to the upstairs level, you should really take a look in the dining room and the kitchen. Namely, the wood heavily returns here, which delivers a successful composition with the dominant grey-white colour. In the kitchen, you are for a moment surprised by the subtle but eye-catching pattern on the island. Seeing that the rest of the home is noticeably loyal to as simple a design as possible, the effect of a carefully chosen accent succeeds even better. At the same time, the grey concrete is meant to contrast the cosiness of the wood.
Controlled decoration brings out the functionality even better
On the second floor, the bedroom really solidifies the controlled tone of the home, considering that the minimal aesthetic is once again confirmed. Dreaming off to another world would not be too much of an effort here, because the deliberately composed calm does anything but miss its effect. Again, the light colours take the floor. Next to this, the designer specifically chose this linen bedding to complement the light-grey and beige walls in a fitting manner. We completely approve of this decision, since together the components form a bedroom where every lover of withdrawn spaces would want to reside. By keeping the decoration controlled, the functionality comes to the fore even better. If you are up for a minimalist interior where no single element is too much, this home in Munich has got it all. A monochrome palette unites white, grey, and beige, and is happy to be accompanied by mild wood. A daring play of shapes and lines guarantees that the rooms come alive and possess a clear dimension.
