It is fascinating to observe how concrete has won a secure place in the hearts of interior designers worldwide. The home presented below envisioned by and located in a small village southwest of Hradec Králové, Czech Republic is an example of concrete creativity. You can see the material employed throughout the interiors (walls, ceilings, floor); yet the place does not feel too industrial, but sophisticated and contemporary-elegant instead.
The core of the residence is a minimalist, open plan living and dining room, designed in a neutral color palette. Just a few furniture elements and carefully chosen lighting fixtures give this interior an original vibe. The “cold” and gray concrete on the ceiling is contrasted by wooden additions and white lacquered kitchen finishes. Subtle texture on the ceiling creates a visual disruption, making it easy for anyone visiting to look up. Far from being a concrete-used-in-living-space fan, I have to say this place touched a soft spot. How does it resonate with your tastes?
