Another smart feature of this Chilean home is the glass brick wall in the kitchen that filters in sunlight and brings a multi-colored and dynamic aura to the space. Complete with colorful décor aesthetic accessories and a dashing stairway that connects the two levels this handsome Chicureo home surely moves away from the mundane.
While the public spaces seem far more transitional the bedroom and bathrooms completely embrace cool contemporary style with minimal décor and a white and gray color scheme.

While we often do not go into the details of the costs involved in the creation of dream homes and fabulous renovations that we often feature on it is often the single most important factor that defines these houses. Not many of us have the luxury of an ‘unrestricted budget’ and for 7A architecture studio which shaped the in Dak Lak Province Vietnam building costs were one of the guiding forces behind the design of this lovely family residence. With low construction costs and low-skilled local workers to deal with this ingenious house is all about maximizing both space and resources!
Wooden slats and a cantilevered top level create a striking street façade that sets this family home designed by GITC Arquitectura apart from its more modest neighbors! And on the inside it is the division of private and public spaces across two different levels and a double-height living space that define its modern aesthetics.
It is the top two levels that house two small apartments which make the most of the available space on offer. The open plan living area of the apartment on the fourth floor flows into the bedroom with the headboard wall separating the two.
The idea behind this nifty feature was driven by the constant hassle that parents face all across the world where the floor ends up being a cluttered mess filled with a million things after the kids’ playtime!

It is easy does not really break your back and you definitely are creating new storage space that has never been tapped into.
Connected with the deck living area barbecue zone and the yard adults in the house can keep an eye on the little ones spending their time here from pretty much everywhere! Add to it the fact that the room is largely devoid of permanent fixtures and rigid features and it can be easily turned into an additional family room home office or even a guest space a few years down the line.
