A centralized kitchen on the main level acts as the hub of daily conventions and social gatherings for this single-family house set on a generous south-sloping lot. The grade has been manipulated to allow a walk-out side garden from the lower floor suite while preserving the garden relationship to the main floor living room, library and front entry. The main and upper floor spaces walk out to spacious patios and decks, ranging from private lounging areas to overlooking landscaped vistas. The 2-bedroom rental and nanny suite on the lower level also have their own dedicated walk out patios and sunken gardens, equal in light and spacial quality to the levels above. The crisp, looming roof lines highlight the beauty of the natural cedar soffits while sitting comfortably on a minimal material pallet of stucco, glass, detailed metal, concrete and featured marble slabs.

A metropolitan loft endorsed by Minà & Natural Skin can unveil the expressive potential as well as the reasoning behind the space. The black metal and the cooked wood, merge together to create scenographic environments with a safe sculptural impact. The spaces are open and dynamic and receive much praise – thanks to the flexibility of the possible layouts. The interior gives rise to and articulates intimate and theatrical glimpses, whilst still marrying up the ideal and practical side of an idea of comfort which is truly contemporary. The atmosphere becomes dynamic and aesthetically like days gone by, with unprecedented traces of refined and decisive lines.

As living spaces and kitchen islands merge together in most contemporary homes nowadays, i29 designed a kitchen that acts more as a piece of furniture instead of as a kitchen. Our aim was to develop a kitchen system that seems to disappear in space.
The design is reduced to it’s absolute minimum, having a top surface of only a couple of centimeters thickness with all water, cooking and electrical connections included. Large sliding wall panels conceal all kitchen appliances and storage space.
