Built with rammed earth, this extraordinary home design appears to organically extrude from the landscape. Inside the home, the rammed earth construction is left exposed, creating a warm and textural backdrop throughout. To maintain this unique element as the focus of the home design, additional decor is subtle. Natural wood, marble, and travertine complement the tone and pattern of the perimeter, reaching an overall look of calm and peace. Designed by Kanstantsin Remez, the 320-square-meter multi-family house has an open-plan living space, a private home office, and four spacious bedrooms with terraces. Jack and Jill bathrooms tuck between the bedroom suites, whilst the guest bathroom is accessed off a huge entryway.
The thick rammed earth walls of The Beige Residence reduce solar heat gain and build a cozy sense of enclosure and privacy. The natural construction gently melds the modern home design with the environment.
Large windows, skylights, and glazed doors bring natural light into the living spaces and bedrooms, and break open views of the surrounding landscape.
Inside the home, the rammed earth walls build a smooth, layered pattern. Their natural color creates a cozy atmosphere and a peaceful stillness. A faux fur sofa places an irresistibly soft island at the center of the living room. A living room floor lamp is tucked between the modules of the couch to offer focused reading light. Modern lounge chairs add a deeper, contrasting tone to the furniture arrangement.
A white marble side table places a luxe touch beside the lounge chairs. Two blue ceramic stools add a small jolt of color to the interior decor scheme, boosting the energy in the room.
A built-in window seat spans the full width of the room. It includes storage units underneath, which helps keep the space looking uncluttered and serene. Throw pillows are added across the wooden seat to create a more welcoming aesthetic and feel.
The modular sofa has a 360º configuration, which creates a conversational setting with the lounge chairs and offers a comfortable view of the window. Wooden side tables tuck into the modular sofa arrangement.
The open living space unfolds in an L-shaped floor plan, with a connecting archway to the large home entryway.
Assorted wooden dining chairs are teamed with a luxurious marble dining table to create a chic but welcoming aesthetic. Two dining room pendant lights are twinned to illuminate the full length of the long table.
The adjoined kitchen area features a central kitchen island. A pair of
wooden bar stools line the edge of the integrated breakfast bar.
Behind the wooden kitchen island, appliance housing units flank a recessed prep area. The rammed earth wall makes a stunning backsplash.
Kitchen floor tiles make cool contrast with the natural wood flooring in the rest of the living space. Different floor treatments help define change in function.
A single stainless steel bar is mounted above the cooker to hold kitchen utensils. A pair of wooden canisters complete the minimalist adornments.
The interior decor plan prioritizes spaciousness and intimacy.
The thick rammed earth walls build a sense of security, a quiet sanctuary away from the external pressures of life.
Built-in storage maintains the tranquil streamlined look.
In the bedroom, furniture resides close to the floor to create a relaxed look. A small, modern wall sconce shines over a bespoke wooden bedside table. The unit’s wooden casing ties in with the cladding on the kitchen island and walls in the entryway.
Wooden window casings and fitted wardrobes complement one another with their natural tone. An open doorway leads through into a Jack and Jill bathroom.
The two Jack and Jill bathrooms have identical designs. A travertine basin extrudes from the rammed earth wall in a perfectly matching tone. A small spotlight illuminates the neat vanity nook. A door to the left of the vanity leads into a shower enclosure, the door on the right is the WC.
Opposite the vanity area, there stands a luxurious, travertine bathtub.
The guest bathroom is located just off the home entryway, next to the living space. Two small vanity mirrors make an understated installation above a large bathroom sink. The door to the left enters a shower area.
Two pedestal basins dominate the spacious home entryway.
Coat closets line one entire wall of the entryway. This wall backs directly onto the kitchen installation.
A pair of skylights bring natural sunlight flooding into the home entryway, which spills through into the adjacent dining room and bedroom hallway.
The private home office has its own aesthetic entirely. The walls are shiplapped with moss green-stained boards to create an energizing color scheme. A wooden desk makes natural contrast with the green backdrop. A black swing arm wall lamp adds a dark accent.
Two modern armchairs, small side tables, and a wooden coffee table make up a comfortable lounge area in the home office. Built-in bookshelves offer ample storage space.
The house is pushed back from the main street behind a row of tall hedges, constructing a private garden space for the homeowners.
On the floor plan, we can see a utility room situated off the large home entryway, opposite the guest bathroom. There is a small reading nook located beside the dining room, which is perfectly situated for natural light. Terraces are accessed from the kitchen and the home office.
