As we are all being forced into lock-down around the globe. Does it not make you feel how our freedom can be taken away so fast? How are we all coping right now? For me where I am is why, I asked myself.
What is the purpose of my home?
Individuality is at the heart of my soul. But you can lock me down but your can’t take away my mental freedom.
I work a lot from home so my working space if my creative office.
Reaching New Heights
Innovation design ideas have resulted in the successful extension and renovation of homes. What is the purpose of your home? This is such an important question before you design your home.
For me it is a home where I could have create spaces for others to be part of. Also a view is all about me being able to breathe and not feel suffocated.
With mountain views like this. My house was a reconfigured to make it more where spaces felt like I am sitting in nature. Embarking on any self – build project brings forward a mix of anticipation and anxiety. The prospect of creating a beautiful building can easily slip into a sense of uncertainty over possible planning battles.
There’s no point designing a palace if you can only afford a cottage.
The Beauty Of Bespoke
Here in the mountain’s it is about having a vision for panoramic art. By using massive window’s as a pictureframe is about a unique design tailor – made to my view.
Vision panoramic is about raising the bar in modern architecture to levels never seen before. The size of your view is the reflection of the largest glass panels one can use.
According to research , most self-builders end up with a home that is worth significantly more than it cost to build.
By using different shades fabrics by complementing the materials with nature can add value to your design.
Complement The Interior
The long bricks bend or become crooked in the baking process, giving each a unique shape. The grey shade was chosen to complement many of the materials used in the interior.
The simple interior spaces allows me to add colour later on. live in the space for awhile before you start choosing art or sofa’s.
The plot here posed a challenge because it’s narrow. So the house is composed of many storey blocks positioned to maximise light.
The bedroom view is of the mountains but the main house views which include my working space is more of a compromise. So choosing the room for your best view is tough. I can always change my working space.
Weather To Suit
To complement the surrounding architecture, it is important that weather is in consideration. Here in the mountains there is snow, wind, storms, rains and in summer it can be very hot.
Capturing the advantage of the views is all about the expanses of glazing which are vital element of the project’s success.
It is all about living the lifestyle. My garden access is huge, therefore fake grass and outdoor tiles which are easy to clean is all I need. Flowers are hard to grow here. As long as my sofa is large, comfortable and accessible the garden is very minimalist.
I can pop out and walk those mountains hence my home has to have a strong inside-outside feel to it.
The weather is brilliant all year round so the outdoor access has to reflect that.
Fashion And Interior Design
My life is a work of art and what I do, wear reflects the home I choose to live in and the outdoor lifestyle I lead.
It is all about running my our race and staying in the lane I am confident and not so comfortable with.
The real essence of this place is pure escapism, whether dangling from a mountain, skiing the slopes or relaxing in the impeccable spa.
My home more so than ever makes me realise that with this coronavirus I can handle lock down for awhile.
