The Jelen Place project was designed by Alexander Brenner Architekten. The house was built in 2014 sitting on a surface of 110 square meters and has a modern and cozy design that’s still in the spirit of the 70’s but without seeming out of place. It’s hard to make the house feel less modern because of the overall simplicity of the design. The exterior of the house is covered with wood and stone and the interior features the same characteristics.
The combination of materials is a little unexpected but beautiful in itself. The exterior is a little strange for this style but, overall, the result is very satisfying and the design direction remains the same. The interior continues the same direction but the colors are all in perfect harmony with the exterior.
The most impressive and eye-catching area is the master bedroom. It has large windows that offer expansive views of the snowy mountains and the surrounding landscape. In order to make the windows serve as functional spaces such as meant to frame the views or to bring the indoors inside, the rest of the interior spaces have to be functional as well and to take advantage of the natural light.
The master bedroom is linked to a bath building and they both have skylights. On the upper floor there’s a space that can be used as an office. Overall, the whole structure of the house is an intriguing combination of wood, stone, plaster and steel, with an emphasis on the latter.
