Bungalows are often so charming and enticing and the Atrium House by BFS Design rises even 1 step above that. Initially a 1950s-era home made by Eduard Ludwig, (identified also for his monument at Tempelhof airport), this contemporary dream home has been restored into a modest splendor.
Sitting on a quiet street in Tiergarten Park in the historic Hansaviertel quarter of Berlin, this modernist dwelling is a 1-story courtyard property which, dare I say, evokes a timeless California-style really feel of the exact same time period.
Despite the a lot more quaint size of the rooms, they manage to flow with white floors and walls, and floor-to-ceiling windows wherever attainable. 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 both bathed in sun and sprinkled with shade from a canopy of mature trees.
An quick eye-catching element is the substantial and varied utilization of decorative tiles. Beginning in the kitchen, a wall of sunny pale-yellow tiles are dimensional, resonating within this cozy space. Zero upper cabinetry is clever, permitting the area to be cost-free of any unnecessary mass. A bold red faucet–how could you not really like this?!–pops against the solid white slab of countertop and basin, even though a table for 8 arranged with a mix of warmly-hued modern day chairs adds even a lot more cheer.
The artistic tile perform 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 1 corner. In the master bath, more unexpected tiling in the type of squares centered with depressed circles covers an entire wall–rather unexpected for such a discreet space but equally as spectacular.
The Atrium Home, a vintage house, has been transformed into a small contemporary dream property which radiates with light, power and a fresh vibe.
