Arkis Arkitektar designed a project applying modern design with high ceiling room called Villa Lola that is located in Akureyri, Iceland. It has rough wooden facade, which is naturally worn out because of weather. Nevertheless, this living place still gets modern style and sends out strong statement from exterior part. Lots of glass windows, even though not too in large size, are installed to wall surface then. Surrounding environment gives people view of stunning scenery from green bushes and swamp. Lake can be seen in distant space too.
Embraced natural by nature will not make architect to leave this opportunity to arrange outdoor setting. As this place is a retreat, then it must be in relaxing ambiance with peaceful atmosphere too. Modern design house plans with the high ceiling room here are done by building a strong concrete foundation in details of wooden deck above. Long bench, table, and some chairs are mainly made from combination of metal structure and paneled woods. This area is suitable to be barbeque space.
What about room inside and its design? Let’s take a glimpse on living room. High ceiling doubled up by large windows make calming sensation and become relaxing space perfectly. Under white floating staircase, white bookshelf is embedded to wall, whereas white cabinets are also added. It serves as comfy nook area instantly as window installed and pillows placed. At the other corner, fluffy recliner in rustic theme looks stunning itself.
Kitchen space is done in another part of retreat place. Even though white is painted to almost all walls yet accent wall is used in kitchen, which is painted in bright orange tone. After that, white floating board is hung above, along with wooden drawer at end of counter. Stylish black stairs make additional space to create mini island area. Contemporary home plans with the high ceiling room here are chosen from black colored wood table, and then paired with simple grey chair.
