The design team then led us through the neon pink front door to the residence, and up two flights of stairs to the main residential space. Impressive 6′-6″ x 10′ triple-glazed sliding doors, manufactured by Austrian company Walch, allow cool air to flow into the room, and a hatch flushes warm air out through the roof. On the day of our visit, there was a lovely breeze that balanced the cozy temperature inside.
The 20-foot tall room, elegantly furnished under GGrippo’s direction, portrays a clean aesthetic of bright colors and simple lines fit for the creative couple and their young daughter. The design also provides a contrast to the whitewashed concrete walls and exposed ceilings, preserving the openness of the double height spaces, while focusing visual activity at floor level. Light streaming in from the double-height facade bounced around the brightly colored space, transforming the calculated design into an active living zone perfect for hosting parties and dinners, or taking out crayons and coloring away!
