This modern penthouse apartment outside Innsbruck, Austria, was designed by Nina Mair Architecture + Design and converted into an urban loft that embodies the alpine lifestyle. The interior has a warm pastel color palette, which is complemented by valuable natural materials such as oak tent, Kanfanar stone, linen and woolen textiles. The house was also designed around a central core that allows residents to use the different rooms depending on the time of year and the position of the sun. This design strategy appropriately captures or avoids natural light for the various functions of the rooms such as cooking, eating, recreation, resting and bathing.
The custom-made kitchen made of Kanfanar stone, the oiled wooden floors and the custom-made oak furniture blend into the natural alpine surroundings. Well thought-out openings flood the rooms with light and improve the ambience of the spacious room.
A custom-made oak bench wrapped in ribbed, muted blue upholstery underlines the room.
A clever, individually built-in desk can be folded up into a compact home office and stowed away at the end of the day to leave its space to private space.
The local Rauriser stone goes well with the pastel colored mint tiles in the bathroom. A skylight illuminates the room with a soft glow in the morning hours.
