Deep in the woods, south of Berlin, stands a wooden, summer house with surprising interior design ideas. On the outside, the dark wooden house looks small and quaint, but inside is a whole other story. White, bright and airy, it’s not at all what you would expect. The interior is covered in white pine cladding, while certain parts of the home, mainly the kitchen, is finished in natural pine, which brings an organic quality to the design. The decision to open the ceiling alcove to the space below creates a grand effect and contributes to the open feeling. We especially like the effect of the recessed lighting up there. The lights seem to bring a starry sky quality indoors. The ladder for access to the alcove above is a good choice that adds playfulness and saves space, without obstructing the wonderful view via those impressive panoramic windows. And did you see the mosaic work in the shower! Bold choices like this, especially in contrast to the minimal feel of the home, always elicit such an excited and pleasant response. What a wonderful little summer house to escape to for a calm weekend in the woods. Visit to learn more from the architects.
