DESIGNING // NEW HOME FOR HIM
Turning this penthouse in a place where he feels home with an inviting and cosy feeling for friends and family.
Materialization and colors
By using wood as a base in the materialization, I created a warm atmosphere within the whole home. For the choice of color within my materialization I have been inspired by the hobby and lifestyle of my customer: Mindful living with Yoga. Within this lifestyle I found out about the Chakra colors. A chakra is a wheel of energy within your body. The seven Chakra colors are said to be the key to health. Within this 7 colors, i have chosen two to implement in my design.
Green: The color green belongs to the heart chakra. This chakra is the center of the body. Green represents calm, hope and peace. I have therefore chosen this color as the base color of the house. A space where the resident can keep his calm and peace and come to himself.
Red: The color red belongs to the root chakra. This chakra stands for orientation and provides a safe feeling. By staying positive and being open to new opportunities, this chakra retains its strength. Red gives a feeling of warmth, strength, love and energy. This meaning has led me to choose this color for the bedroom. The space where you recharge yourself for new energy and opportunities for the next day.
More space and natural light.
By placing a steel/glass door frame between the living room and the hall, more emphasis is placed on the length of the penthouse. By removing the wall between kitchen and living room, I created contact between two areas. This way the morning sun will not only start shining in the kitchen, but also shining into the living room earlier in the day and this way you have the optimal use of natural light in the home.
