The library rules. No not “ssshhh no talking”. I mean this amazing library rules! The house too. The book lined shelves provide transition between the old house and the new extension, screening the open plan living areas from the hallway and front door. Black, white and wood, my favourite combo, are accentuated by the polished concrete floor and occasional burst of colour. By Melbourne based design atelier Techné.
Step inside this black clad house designed by Danish firm Wienberg Architects and you enter a still world, a series of spaces that are calm and zen like. A carefully curated collection of colour and materials, black and white, concrete and wood veneer, strokes the senses. Soft and hard, warm and stark. Beautiful details only emphasis the simplicity.
There is nothing more beautiful than black, white and grey. These stunning photos by Swedish photographer Jenny Grimsgärd are proof.
Light, bright, modern. Like a taste of sherbet or a slice of summer fruit. It’s fresh, it’s young, it’s zingy and it’s fun. Interiors by Dutch firm Depot Rotterdam.
