Sliding glass panels create a seamless transition between outside and inside and serve to open up the space – literally and visually. It’s not easy to tell where “inside” begins (at first, the home’s living room just looks like a beautifully bedecked patio).

With its open floor plan and clean architecture, the Loft Bauhaus has a decidedly modern foundation. The kitchen, living area and bedroom form one big space. Partial walls divide them. For example, the kitchen is a semi-private space but it still remains linked to the rest of the house.

Throughout the home, rustic and modern elements collide and combine to create a unique warmly-minimalist space. Notice the simple wooden table with its traditional shape and design and the big and modern pendant light hanging above it.

A neutral color palette is filled with varying shades of greys, browns, and blacks.

The use of natural elements such as wood, iron, and stone bring in a sense of warmth and cozy livability to the straight lines. Glass also plays an important role. It allows nature to become a part of the interior décor.

The whole house feels very relaxing. There are plenty of lounge areas and they’re all beautiful and surrounded by nature, whether vegetation and color are actually part of the décor or just visible through the glass walls.
