LIGHT, CONTRAST AND NOBLE SOPHISTICATION
Spacious villa in rural Austria, a new timeless building in a dream location: the floor-to-ceiling windows open the living area onto the garden and allow a clear view of the sky and the Alps. Lights, shadows and soft shades of gray, brown, black and white furnishings create the atmosphere. Natural materials such as stoneware floors, wooden ceilings and exposed concrete walls spread a welcoming touch. In this extraordinary environment, only the right kitchen was missing, including the dining room.
The concept, constantly recalls the atmosphere and adds some surprising highlights: together with the owners of the building, we decided to use the SLIM island. The worktop is made of hot rolled stainless steel, the fronts are made of anodized aluminum in champagne color which gives all that something, behind, there is the tall wall unit with dark brown wooden fronts; Its reserved design blends harmoniously with the overall picture and gives the kitchen island a glamorous appearance. The tall cabinet system without handles convinces with variable functions. Revolving doors, pocket doors, folding sliding doors or flat sliding door systems were available. The client chose the wooden fronts. For smaller room heights up to 245 cm or as a material contrast, we also produce WALL with natural stone surfaces.
In the adjacent dining room the handmade table with top in smoked oak. This rests on a solid black raw steel structure. The dining table harmonizes the tall cabinet with the wooden ceilings. The light gray chairs (Freifrau) and the gray glass pendant lights (KNOT Brokis) correspond in color to the kitchen island. Our composition complements the timeless interior of Villa AG, which builders will appreciate for decades.
