Photosynthesis of life

Entry Description

The minimalist aesthetic finds expression through a living plant wall. Light, shadow, and natural greenery interplay to provide a peaceful feeling. One enters to a fireplace design that also serves as an entryway. Turning, one enters a large open space with a generous view of the primary living space, the kitchen including a large island, and a large window leading the viewer outward. The layout allows individuals to relax and feel connected to the entire room. A geometric bevel face in the ceiling of the main living area injects a contemporary feel into the space. The uneven, layered ceiling creates unique shadows, angles for light, and moves both air and sound in unique ways.
