A Curved Wood Slat Accent Wall Spans The Living Room And Dining Area Of This Home

Interior architecture firm InArch, has completed the design of a home in Vilnius, Lithuania, and one of the key design details is a wood slat accent wall.

Spanning the width of the open plan living room, dining area, and kitchen, the wood slat wall is curved towards the ceiling and becomes the backdrop for the television and wall-mounted speakers. A fireplace with a black surround that incorporates firewood storage, separates the living room side from the dining area.

Let’s take a look around the rest of the home…

The house features black screens that wrap around the exterior, which can be folded or pivoted open to reveal the interior, while also providing security when closed.

Also sharing the open floor plan is the dining room with a large wood table, the kitchen with an island, and a secondary seating area. From this view, you can see how glass walls enclose the living spaces, and when combined with the black screens, an exterior hallway is created.

Matt Fajkus Architecture has recently completed a 950 square foot addition to a home in Austin, Texas, and included in the design, is a dining area that makes the most of the available space.

Lucas Takaoka Has Designed An Outdoor Living Area For Casacor SP 2019

Lucas Takaoka Has Designed An Outdoor Living Area For Casacor SP 2019

Photography by Evelyn Muller

Invited to take part in the Casacor SP 2019 Exhibition, Lucas Takaoka has designed the Nohara Terrace, an outdoor living area at the Jockey Clube de São Paulo in Brazil.

The main concept of the project was to create a space that is minimal and clean, but also peaceful and relaxing for the visitor. The allotted area is 215 square feet (20sqm²), and includes a wooden structure made from Brazilian pinus, that also features wall coverings and flooring made of concrete, creating a pleasant contrast of warm and cold textures.

The terrace is divided into three parts, the toilet area (hidden behind doors), a small waiting lounge, and a counter for washing hands in the middle. The counter also has a built-in fireplace to heat the area, as the exhibition took place in winter.

Lucas Takaoka has also designed all three furniture pieces that came directly from the factories to be shown to the public, and those pieces include an arm-chair (Tati), a side table (Nômade), and a floor-lamp (Nohara).

Bedroom Design Idea – Create A Lofted Seating Area With Storage Below

Interior design studio 4VISUAL has completed the design of a bedroom that has a lofted seating area with storage space below it.

The original bedroom didn’t have any closet space, so the designers solved the problem by creating a pair of closets with sliding doors. As the ceiling is very high, the space above the closets was able to be used to create a seating/lounge area.

This modern bedroom has a lofted sitting area above the closets, that's accessed by a small ladder and furnished with beanbags. #LoftedLounge #BedroomDesign #BedroomIdeas #ModernBedroom #Loft #Closets

A shelf separates the closets, while a wood ladder leads up to the seating area that’s been furnished with a couple of black beanbags.

This Kitchen Island Was Combined With A Seating Area On One End

Resolution: 4 Architecture (RES4) has recently completed a townhouse in Brooklyn, New York.

One interesting feature we noticed was the kitchen island design, which seamlessly includes a seating area at one end. The custom-designed white Corian island countertop has a rectangular shape at one end, before transitioning into a curved split design that wraps around the soft blue banquette seating.

The base of the seating matches the wood of the kitchen cabinets, while the round table fits into the semi-circular shape of the banquette.

The seating is perfectly positioned to take in the view of a custom-built aquarium, showcasing the owner’s salt-water fish, and on the other side of the fish tank is the living room.
