Japan architecture inspiration

table moderne bois métal

This interior caught my eye as I like the warmth brought by the wood. Mixed with metal, it adds up a modern feel to the uncluttered and simple volumes. I could have bet this house was located in the french alps, but no ! I was surprised to discover it’s actually located in … Japan !

Visit the “Ishibe” house, made by Alts Design in Japan.

Mix of wood style for this corridor. Decoration enhance with large posters framed sitting on the floor.

The entrance made of wood with a metal stair linking with the second floor.

Living area with kitchen and a wide table for family reunion : the hub of this house. Beautifully designed with a mix of wood of the ceiling and for the table top. Industrial feel adds modernity with hanging lamp bulbs from black cord on the ceiling and metal structure for furniture and stairs. A wise mix !

 

 

bois, métal béton

Very simple lines is what works best ; )

Check the large open shelves for storage on the far right.

The mezzanine upstairs with wooden floor and ceiling. A wall has been covered of old pieces of wood for a more rustic look.

A cosy atmosphere with a japanese touch. Very ZEN !

Surprisingly, I didn’t expect the exterior of this house to look like a cube. We expect a chalet type house, but it is actually a perfect cube ! Why not ? (Well actually a bit too modern to my (french) taste)

I hope you enjoyed this japan inspiration !

Have a good week !

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 !

White and Wooden Norwegian Interior

Here is a small thatched house in the heart of Norwegian nature. The interior design is uncluttered, white and wood.

Designed by Norwegian architect John Lassen, most of the furniture has been created by himself. The rest comes from the famous brand IKEA. The style is very pure, very clear, very white. Touches of wood warm the atmosphere and the materials works great together!

View from the outside:

A ladder has been placed instead of a staircase in order to optimize the space.

Crush for this modern white kitchen. A natural touch through wood worktop.

Wooden hallway towards 2 small bedrooms and a bathroom.

Another crush for this little sitting area with the sofa in the alcove. The coffee table was designed by John Lassen and sofa and armchair are from IKEA.

Hoping this article has been very inspirational! Thanks for your visit and I hope to see you again soon!
