The house for Dorothy in Prague, Czech Republic, was recently completed by Boq Architekti, who was brought in in the late stages of construction to design the interior for a family.
The interior prominently shows concrete and wood as the materials of choice, which are rounded off with playful details. On the ground floor, the open living area looks bright and open with surrounding windows and sliding glass doors that lead to the outside area. The designers kept the color palette neutral through the use of white, anthracite gray, and natural wood, as well as the occasional curated splash of color.
A cozy lounge area is at one end of the ground floor and offers a quiet space for reading or relaxing by the fire. The central living room has a projection screen flanked by two white bookcases on either side when it’s time to watch a movie. When the screen is rolled up, the minimalist wooden staircase with glass railing attracts attention and cleverly disguises the storage space below. The sofa is modular and can be reconfigured into three different configurations for different scenarios.
A huge kitchen island offers plenty of space for the preparation of meals. A suspended ceiling above the island reflects its shape and provides backlit ambient light. The children’s room has a multifunctional wall unit with storage space, while a house-shaped corner is created at the head of the bed.
