Headstrong inflexibility powered the concept of this modern home design, for the client had ideas that could not be remoulded by the architectural team at KWK Promes. The owner of the beautiful hillside plot wished only to copy the tame interior of his existing flat, which disconnected the living space from the garden by being on the first floor. So, with interior changes off the table, the team redirected focus onto the road that would lead to and from the home at the centre of the large plot. They explored how they could lift the path and wrap it around the clients immovable ideas, before returning it to garden level–and the ‘By The Way House’ was born.
The simple home interior that was requested by the client remains intact, whilst the exterior of the home is a sharp and innovative shell, fully integrated with a specially designed private road that leads to and from it.
Because the client remained adamant that the main living space would be on the first floor, the architects searched for a way to reconnect the living room with the gardens. So, the architectural wrap was designed to unwind at this side of the building…
Internal wood walls contrast with light concrete modern home exterior.
Perhaps inspired by the end result of this unique piece of architecture, the client rethought his ideal functional interior. The final design is a crisp monochrome minimalist vision. A bold black sofa cuts an L-shape into a pure white minimalist living room, overlooked by an elegant black floor lamp.
An open and airy modern staircase design connects the floors of the home. A tall glass balustrade holds solid white stair treads with absent risers to create a floating effect. Dark wood partition walls divide up the floor plan.
In the minimalist bedroom, white wardrobes are installed in line with the external banding around the house. The resulting effect is clean and streamlined, and quietly exaggerates the unique architectural feature.
The modern bathroom is separate from the master bedroom, and enjoys its own stunning views of the river.
