Cosy Light Chalet in Austria

bois et lumière

Created by Gogl Architekten as “a place of peace and contemplation”, this austrian chalet is strongly connected to the natural setting.

The client demanded the architecture to be light and airy, but also cosy.

Let’s have a look !

The entrance with wide glass windows and a stone wall. I love the mix of natural materials, wooden door, stone, natural fabrics for carpet and bench.

The living area with modern ligns. To me, it looks a bit too “cold”, I would have added green plants, or a touch of colors.chimney living room

Large sliding windows over viewing the mountain panorama. Love the floating furniture shelf in rustic wood. It adds horizontal ligns, perfect for a peaceful feeling.

The stairs made of a combination of metal and wood. Simple design, clean ligns.

This living area upstair looks very cosy and inviting, full of light !

A good way to bring more light inside with a roof window.plafond bois

The bathroom full of light with a large window. Boards of wood keep the intimacy but leave the light coming through.

I hope you enjoyed this chalet and that it was inspiring to you !

Tips to create an industrial style at home

The industrial style, inspired by american lofts, is one of the often seen style in decoration.

What I like in this style :

  • the authentic materials : metal, wood, brick…
  • the uncluttered ligns
  • the modern side
What I don’t like :
  • the cold atmosphere of some interiors
  • the lack of personal/human touch

To get the industrial look, it is all about balancing between the positive and the negative aspects.

Tips to create this style at your place :
  1. An orange brick wall (no painting, no fake look ! the orange color will warm up your atmosphere!)
  2. Some raw wook : without varnish or sanding is the cheapest in home improvement stores!
  3. Metal also at the crudest state possible,
  4. Some corrugated iron: inexpensive and guaranteed effect!
  5. Some “vintage” pieces you can find on this site that I love: produitinterieurbrut.com
