Unlike many other bachelor hubs that rely on the excessive use of dark hues leather and minimalism this contemporary home takes a completely different approach while delivering a stylish refined and functional living space. Crafted by Antonio Martins Interior Design along with Zack/De Vito Architecture this San Francisco home has an industrial flavor that can’t be denied.
Designed by Jacobsen Arquitetura the private residence is spread across two different floors with the lower level half buried underground to ensure that the overall structure is not too tall and imposing.
Lighting fixtures like the 85 Lamps Chandelier enhance the underlying industrial flavor of the home while custom décor pieces in the bedrooms and guest spaces add to the sophisticated atmosphere indoors. Color is kept to a bare minimum and the backdrop is kept as neutral as possible with edgy elegance becoming the predominant theme.
Moving away from convention the master bedroom sits on the lower level of this Texas home along with the living area cozy dining space and a stylish kitchen clad in walnut veneer.
But this ingenious Swedish family home has another surprise in store as a hidden basement level connected with the top two floors using a spiral staircase expands the living area and creates a cozy private family zone.
Achieving that elusive balance between privacy and a sense of spaciousness and freedom is a tough task indeed when designing a home in an urban setting. Often one residence starts where the other ends and privacy means closing off the home to natural light and ventilation as well.
This does away with the hassle of a long daily commute and the ensuing carbon emissions as well! Sounds all too simple but it is these simple changes that the designer duo focused on while chalking up the plans for this ergonomic makeover.
