Atrium Property – Berlin By BFS Design And Style
Bungalows are usually so charming and enticing and the Atrium Home by BFS Style rises even one particular step above that. Initially a 1950s-era house made by Eduard Ludwig, (identified also for his monument at Tempelhof airport), this contemporary dream residence has been restored into a little splendor.
Sitting on a quiet street in Tiergarten Park in the historic Hansaviertel quarter of Berlin, this modernist dwelling is a a single-story courtyard house which, dare I say, evokes a timeless California-style feel of the same time period.
In spite of the more quaint size of the rooms, they handle to flow with white floors and walls, and floor-to-ceiling windows wherever attainable. Elegant white sheers are pulled back against the windows, allowing light to dance, but also contributing a breezy softness to the interiors. Mid-century furnishings are alluring in tones of grey, cream and medium woods, with ceramics and leaning art arranged for casual balance. Sliding glass doors open unto the pebbled courtyard which is each bathed in sun and sprinkled with shade from a canopy of mature trees.
An immediate eye-catching element is the in depth and varied utilization of decorative tiles. Starting in the kitchen, a wall of sunny pale-yellow tiles are dimensional, resonating inside this cozy space. Zero upper cabinetry is clever, enabling the room to be free of charge of any unnecessary mass. A bold red faucet–how could you not adore this?!–pops against the solid white slab of countertop and basin, although a table for eight arranged with a mix of warmly-hued contemporary chairs adds even more cheer.
The artistic tile work continues across the rest of this adobe. A floating black fireplace in the living area meshes with the dark-patterned tile wall behind it, which is contrasted only by a stack of wood in one particular corner. In the master bath, much more unexpected tiling in the kind of squares centered with depressed circles covers an complete wall–rather unexpected for such a discreet space but equally as spectacular.
The Atrium Property, a vintage home, has been transformed into a modest contemporary dream house which radiates with light, energy and a fresh vibe.
