Bungalows are usually so charming and enticing and the Atrium Residence by BFS Design and style rises even a single step above that. Originally a 1950s-era property created by Eduard Ludwig, (recognized also for his monument at Tempelhof airport), this modern dream home has been restored into a tiny splendor.
Sitting on a quiet street in Tiergarten Park in the historic Hansaviertel quarter of Berlin, this modernist dwelling is a one particular-story courtyard home which, dare I say, evokes a timeless California-style feel of the identical time period.
In spite of the much more quaint size of the rooms, they manage to flow with white floors and walls, and floor-to-ceiling windows wherever achievable. Elegant white sheers are pulled back against the windows, permitting light to dance, yet also contributing a breezy softness to the interiors. Mid-century furnishings are alluring in tones of grey, cream and medium woods, with ceramics and leaning art arranged for casual balance. Sliding glass doors open unto the pebbled courtyard which is each bathed in sun and sprinkled with shade from a canopy of mature trees.
An immediate eye-catching element is the in depth and varied utilization of decorative tiles. Starting in the kitchen, a wall of sunny pale-yellow tiles are dimensional, resonating inside this cozy space. Zero upper cabinetry is clever, allowing the space to be free of charge of any unnecessary mass. A bold red faucet–how could you not enjoy this?!–pops against the strong white slab of countertop and basin, while a table for 8 arranged with a mix of warmly-hued modern day chairs adds even far more cheer.
The artistic tile work continues across the rest of this adobe. A floating black fireplace in the living area meshes with the dark-patterned tile wall behind it, which is contrasted only by a stack of wood in a single corner. In the master bath, a lot more unexpected tiling in the type of squares centered with depressed circles covers an complete wall–rather unexpected for such a discreet space but equally as spectacular.
The Atrium Residence, a vintage house, has been transformed into a tiny contemporary dream home which radiates with light, power and a fresh vibe.
