Like many houses in Luxembourg, the kitchen and living area of this home were divided into small and separate rooms. The clients wanted a more open plan to bring in more natural light with a feeling of spaciousness and harmony. Natural wood is an element that is prevalent to create a sense of calm and relaxation.
Upstairs, the extension allowed for an additional bedroom and has given the children expansive views to the garden with built-in desks. The attic which was used as a library and storage now has a new dormer window for a master suite for the parents.
The interior cabinetry on the ground floor designed by Saharchitects is of natural wood contrasted with white. This has been accompanied by thoughtful lighting that creates a sense of depth and variation like we experience when walking through the woods. The large fish tank built into the cabinetry of the living area adds some color and fun as a highlight.
The construction of the garden terrace was to carefully wrap around an old cherry tree. Unfortunately, the tree did not survive the construction which was very sad for our clients and us. We have learned hard lessons from this and know now what we can do differently in the future. The good news is that a sprout of this tree came up naturally further back in the garden. It will take a long time to live up to the majesty of its parent, but the children will grow up with it together.
Under the terrace is a new fitness room with a direct view of the garden.
