An open-plan kitchen-diner allows you to socialise more easily with family and friends while cooking. The large sculptural pendant, which resembles a pine-cone and a monochrome colour scheme ensures the space remains true to its modern architecture.

Inspired by post-war simplicity and the beauty of natural shapes and materials, mid-century furniture is the perfect choice for serene 21st-century homes.The floors are concrete, levelled off to create a ripple effect and polished.

The wide design of the staircase takes the eye straight from the front door up towards the window and right out into the forest canopy. The stairs have been painted blue for maximum impact.

The mezzanine was a late addition to the house's design after the owners realised they needed another room. Large windows allow a lot of light to flood the room, while minimal design and architecture keep the space looking modern and clean.
