Comprised of 1,837 square feet (170 square meters) of living space, the designers main goal was to create a neutral interior, while at the same time create a distinct personal element for family life. The homeowners are creative types do love to do various decorations for their homes. Therefore, pictures of flowers on the walls, art and abstraction was key to the design development. An example of this can be seen in the living room, the coffee table was made from wood stumps, designed to emphasize this feature. Such things adds character and individualism to the home. The main color scheme selected for the interiors was gray and white. The designers also left the origin wood ceiling in the open ground level. Combined, these three hues creates an incredible effect of naturalness, freedom and tranquility, perfect for a young family with children.
The living room features an expansive window that captures an indoor-outdoor living experience. With such an open living space, the designers decided to split into three zones— a fireplace zone, seating area and a cinema seating area with a small table in the corner; a place which offers the largest part of the interior. Fire provides comfort during windy and cloudy weather, which often happens in this region. The designers also tried to maximize natural light wherever possible, however, allowed themselves some areas of privacy and less light.

When designing for this project, the designers had to take into consideration making in child-friendly. They tried to do this by adding some elements of which the interior began to look more fashionable. As an example—rough concrete inserts in contrast with delicate floral patterns.

Everything is designed so that light from the fireplace and LED elements creates a warm atmosphere in the interior and consuming the cold concrete.
