RK-D were engaged to design this house remodel, which took close to two years to complete. The property has a mix of private, social and work spaces. The front portion of the house is retained as bedroom and “adult” living space.
The interiors designed by Sisalla Interior Design to balance a contemporary minimal house with a welcoming ambience. Public spaces have a quiet luxury with a focus on contrasting texture whilst the private areas have softer materials creating warmth and relaxation. The space is flooded with light and fresh air.
