sculpture house.

A double-height, fully glazed wall at the garden side of the house, extends the sense of the outdoors through to the interior. The interior of the building features three sculptural elements – a block of stone forming the central kitchen unit, a perfectly formed, curved stair, and a stone shelf and fireplace wall.

Interior finishes are kept simple – painted white or fabricated in super-hard white Corian, a man-made, solid-surface material composed of marble dust, bauxite, polyester resins and pigments. All floor surfaces, including the stairs are wood, stained almost black.

More wonderful spaces, here

a danish home.

I don’t think anyone does a sublime white interior better than the Danes, and this one is exemplar. It is a turn-of-the-century apartment near Copenhagen; the white backdrop with pale wood floors and white wash of classic features is all calmness and serenity. It is minimal yet inviting. Warmth eminates all around, in texture and tone. Materials are kept natural, textiles neutral. All images The Guardian
