About Java Apartment
Crafting a Contemporary Masterpiece: Java’s Vision
Initially, Java’s vision emphasized fostering open-concept living in the apartment. Consequently, they adopted a classical contemporary style as their North Star. Through this lens, they emphasized straight lines, married with neutral hues, and then layered natural materials. Atop this backdrop, they strategically placed modern furniture and decor.
Strategic Design Elements Elevate Spaces
Upon entering, visitors are immediately greeted by a transition: a vast brick wall, now cloaked in Brazilian Super White Dolomit granite. This choice not only oozes charm but also promises enduring aesthetic strength. Moving forward into the home-theater, one can’t help but notice the expansive laminated walnut wood panel. This feature, aside from housing the TV and related equipment, remarkably spans the room’s entire width. Furthermore, it sets a refined stage for the dry bar area nestled behind.
In the adjacent dining space, elegance prevails. Wooden chairs, complemented with natural straw backrests and raw cotton seats, invite guests to sit. Above, a white lacquer pendant delicately hangs, but the room’s showstopper is undeniably the custom-made Italian Nero Marquina marble table. Anchored by black iron legs, it epitomizes Java’s commitment to luxury.
Marrying Openness with Intimacy
Similarly, both the kitchen and the balcony were conceived with an integrative mindset. They echo the apartment’s overarching theme through consistent use of walnut finishes, dark natural stones, and subdued tones. Yet, for those moments craving seclusion, Java thoughtfully incorporated partition elements. Hence, one can effortlessly switch to a more formal ambiance when desired. Playing pivotal roles in this transformation are the ethereal white linen curtains and the commanding presence of silvery glass sliding doors.
