Detached house 2016
Bernd Gruber designed a home in the center of Kitzbühel for an entrepreneur. It’s not the first home in the interior designer’s unmistakable style, but they are all unique, the requirements of the householder are always different, and so are the structural circumstances.
The owner of this home asked himself, if the living area always needs to be on the ground floor – a good question, as the view from the first floor onto the mountains is much more impressive than from the ground floor.
The decision was easy and so the bedrooms and bathrooms where built on ground level; the first floor was designed as a living area with integrated kitchen.
»We went for modernity regarding the furnishing, we avoided tradition and preferred to use the best old times in a new way«, says Philipp Hoflehner, Creative Director at Bernd Gruber.
The used materials are forming a contrast between old wood beams and aluminum window frames, oak blocks meet the deckchair Rimini by Baxter and the house owner’s motorcycle is parked in the living room behind a free standing shelf. A pleasant atmosphere – simple and calm.
