There are some people that consider the use of those materials will automatically decrease the comfort and the “soul” of a living space, but this superb modern private residence design is the evidence that that acquisition is entirely wrong.
Most of the parts of this beautiful private residence design are representing comfort with the same quality of any other home design that created with wood material that consider as the symbol of comfort and warmth. Moreover, the modernity that use in this private residence is not dubious modernity that forgetting classical value and the symbol of material, it still use small amount of wooden for the flooring. However, steel material is very dominant in the interior, exterior and the home structure itself. The location and the availability of space seem to be the main reason of the excessive use of steel.
Related to the interior decoration as the identity of the space, this perfect private residence design has a modern minimalist space design. It apply smart space setting with vertical consideration, the design is bottom-up and not side-to-side. The furniture, as the manifestation of the design theme that has been selected, dominates by modern minimalist style furniture wit steel and wooden material domination.
