Esoteriko was tasked with reimagining a cherished residence they had originally designed two years prior, this time for a new set of homeowners, a professional couple with teenage children. This presented a fascinating opportunity: to reconsider familiar spaces with fresh perspectives, taking into account the unique tastes and preferences of the new occupants. Instead of a major renovation, the outcome was more of a gentle transformation.

The client’s design request was to infuse warmth, intimacy, and comfort into a towering concrete structure, transforming it into a family home that promotes elevated living while accommodating the way they wished to use the space. The family were after a place that could host large gatherings yet also provide quiet retreats. Though meticulously curated, the design aimed at creating a space that would enhance the quality of daily life.

The directive given was to introduce conversational and comfortable seating arrangements, along with new and adapted cabinetry and decorative elements within the existing space. These would add a sense of warmth and softness that paired with the urban contemporaneity nature of the home’s existing architecture.

With expansive open areas designed to serve distinct but interconnected purposes, the high 3.5-meter concrete ceiling that framed a view of the treetops created a seamless connection between the interior and the surroundings. This offered an opportunity to blend these natural tones and vistas harmoniously with the interior design. To add privacy within these generous spaces, intimate settings were introduced, delineating areas with floor coverings and accentuating zones through shifts in colour.

This project features multiple Ceto Horizontal and Ceto Vertical Chandeliers in a custom configuration.
