Thanks to their curvaceous shape, they are also more suited to a more centralised position without causing an awkward break in a free-flowing layout. With that said, the spiral staircase designs that we’re looking at here are either big in impact or huge in their elegant modern stature. We’ll be taking a look at narrow wheels that explode with colour, style and innovation, some larger spirals and helical staircases that cut extraordinarily beautiful and sculptural silhouettes into their surroundings, plus a selection of colossal feats of magnificent engineering.

Visualizer: 梦太初  

A cool cascade. This solid swirling white balustrade breaks into a cascade of concrete at its base, where heavy treads appear to float absolutely weightlessly.

Visualizer: Guliaeva Interiors  

Turn up the heat to amp up the colour. Tempered steel shimmers an incredible shade of deep purple with rainbow flares, which makes this heat-treated balustrade into a startling focal piece within a subdued monochrome setting.

Designer: Ab Rogers Design  

If you’re hungry for even more colour, then step up your bright spiral staircase design with a graduated rainbow finish around the winders.

Designer: Tetrarc Architects  

Looking like it has burst from the swirling sky of Edvard Munch’s painting, The Scream, this artistic freeform staircase is striped with eye-catching cuts of colour.

Visualizer: Ibrahim Beqiri  

Rails of red. Bright red treads hang free of risers in this fabulously unique spiral staircase design, which is suspended above a contrasting green courtyard with its own stepped border. Colour coordinated furniture rallies a supporting palette nearby.

Visualizer: Koj Design  

Melted gold. This seductive staircase design drips a luxurious melt of gold through a light-filled stairwell, where sunrays accentuate its magnificently rich lustre.

Visualizer: 梦太初  

Like a pristine play on Picasso’s Girl with a Mandolin, this abstract modern staircase combines curves with the cubism of straight closed risers and boxed landing areas.

Visualizer: Norman Studio  

Layers of luxury. An eye-catching feature wall or a bespoke floor to ceiling bookcase makes the ideal tall accompaniment to an elegant spiral staircase installation.

Visualizer: VizLine Studio  

Snail shell chic. The indents underneath this fabulous wheeling staircase installation create the aesthetic of an unravelling snail shell.

Architect: Rockwell Group   Visualizer: Anna Doynikova  

Rising like a tendril of exhaled smoke, the wind of this slinky staircase is showcased within a chimney of alluring atmospheric light.

Visualizer: Lulu Lee  

Curvaceous complements. Not only is this wooden spiral staircase finished with artfully crafted adjoining curves to its mezzanine, but the living room furniture imitates its grace in curvaceous silhouettes below.

Visualizer: Felix Meyer  

Clean meets complexity in a fresh white, minimalist spiral staircase concept.

Visualizer: Unemori Architects  

Maximise light in a limited space with an open tread, small spiral staircase. This piece has a pause in the slimline balustrade halfway up to give access to a partially elevated room.

Source: Hi-Macs  

A twist in the tale. This helical staircase is constructed with one solid side and one glass side to create an exaggerated twist.

Designer: Jannina Cabal & Arquitectos  

The tighter twist. Here, we step away from the loose helical to an uber tight torsion. A glossy black finish dramatises the piece.

Designer: Di Frenna Arquitectos  

Matt black and meandering, a stretched helical staircase dominates a wide open floor plan in an expression of complete professionalism.

Designer: CCD  

A bronze beauty enchants a double height living space with dark, lustrous allure. A wall of glass bricks allows light to enter behind the construction to further illuminate the show.

Visualizer: Damir Fattakhov  

A colour blocked caracol staircase can be achieved with contrasting treads that cut through to the back of the wind.

Designer: Oscar Niemeyer  

The monumental modernist stairs in Palácio Itamaraty by Brazilian legend Oscar Niemeyer.

Designer: The Stonemasonry Company  

Created in contemporary French limestone, this is the world’s first freestanding, 320-degree stone staircase, built by The Stonemasonry Company for a private house in Cheshire.

Visualizer: Sabrab  

Life is full of twists and turns, so why not your staircase? Handrails roam free of balustrades here to fully let loose on those curves.

Designer: YYDG Interiors  

Another disconnected design works with two different materials to accentuate twin twisted tracks.

Designer: Joa Interior  

Boxed edges draw focus to the widest ends of wooden winders here, which make the staircase appear as a piece of intricately crafted furniture.

Designer: Hypothesis Design Agency  

Stepping stones. Step off your staircase onto a pebbled bed–or at least create the illusion of doing so with a bridging tread over a textured floor treatment that’s confined within a suitably rounded border.

Designer: Powerhouse Company  

A different kind of rounded stone bed is achieved here, with stone tiles cut on their axis to create textural contrast. A rounded stone wall encases the stairwell to exaggerate the effect.

Designer: RT+Q  

Create a welcoming highlight. Underlit handrails draw a ribbon of warming illumination that highlights a curving staircase from base to brow.

Designer: OYO Architects  

Perfectly polished. A combo of smooth wood and polished stone builds a sophisticated statement.

Designer: Tommy Rand  

A Danish architect and developer built a house for himself and his family in Denmark, which features a spectacular spiral staircase design that’s made from a staggering 630 pieces of CNC-cut plywood.

Visualizer: Sipal-Wafai.Architecture  

Curves and core courtyards. An open core is just begging to be filled with an eye-catching focal piece, so why not make it a piece of mother nature’s own architecture with a layered courtyard design.

Visualizer: Kris Ashley  

This remarkable spiral staircase and courtyard combination tucks textured greenery all the way around the base to peek through the bottom treads.

Visualizer: Paul Cocksedge  

The halfway hangout. When a spiral staircase is this big, you might as well make a pitstop. Add some shapely benches where creative colleagues can hang out and collaborate within the inspiring surroundings.

Visualizer: Adam Klich  

A low hanging chandelier adds an elegant column of illumination down the centre of a spiralled ascent. Glass sided balustrades allow the glow to pass all the way through, safely highlighting the twisting treads underfoot.

Designer: Park Associates  

Make waves with a water feature. The sound of rippling water will carry all the way up the open stairwell to the second floor to create a serene connection across all levels.

Designer: Risa Meyer  

Tactile twists. Cut deep at the risers and shallow underneath, this columnar design is pieced together with hundreds of layers that you just can’t help but want to touch.

Visualizer: Vipul Gaur  

Another chandelier bejewelled spiral, where luxurious black marble steps cut darkly and LED ribbons shine bright.

Visualizer: Jacek Pilarski  

With an ET sucked up in a tractor beam, we know we’ve gone space age now. Spaceship-like moulded sides encapsulate a futuristic staircase that would look at home on Star Trek… Or in a cool white minimalist pad invaded by Smart Home add-ons and cutting-edge furniture design.

Visualizer: Straw Design  

Named the Interstellar stairs, optical illusion and awe-inspiring symmetry orbit a core that suggests a floating celestial body.

Visualizer: Jamie Cardoso  

Wooden vertebrae make an enormous snaking backbone, like the fossilised remains of an ancient serpent.

Visualizer: Cun Design  

Stacked like thatched straw but as strong as a house of bricks, this extraordinary construction is unfathomable both in scale and in strength.

Designer: parametric.arch  

Contoured fins mould a freeform outer shell around regular treads and risers here, creating a truly amazing design piece where there could have stood mundanity.

Designer: Smart Design Studio  

Spinning out from a central column, steps emerge like wide propellor blades, charged with energy.

Designer: HMA architects & designers  

In the community focussed M.I. bookstore in Harbin, China, HMA architects & designers conceived a colossal staircase design and various spatial experiences that all centre around a love for books.

Designer: Amin Taha Architects  

Material contradiction. An unfeasibly lightweight wireframe column forms the heart of a solid stone staircase, fashioning an interesting contradiction in visual weight.

Designer: Leonardo da Vinci   

This exquisitely detailed spiral is Leonardo da Vinci’s double helix staircase, built in 1520. You can find it inside of the Chateau de Chambord in France.

Visualizer: Jianxiong Liu  

Stacked to the rafters. This wood framed spiralling construction features open sided book stacks that provide colour both inside and outside of the enormous stairwell.

Designer: Disguincio & Co   Visualizer: Giuliano Primi  

Jogging up and down these stairs would be a little like jumping out of a jet plane… Sleek white streamlined metal spinning from view, and not totally safe.

Visualizer: Andrew McConnell  

Is it a cool balustrade of a dinosaur rib cage? Either way, it would look totally awesome next to a fierce recreation of a velociraptor.

Visualizer: Patrick Jouin  

Petals of solid wood flower into a naturally beautiful spiral design.

Designer: Thor ter Kulve and Robert McIntyre  

The stuff treehouse dreams are made of. Canopystair is a modular system that attaches around a tree trunk without the use of tools to form an exterior spiral staircase. The system is lightweight and designed to leave the tree free of any damage or marks.

Designer: Lucjan Kuc, QC Architects  

Railway sleepers stack up a chunky wood grain finish.

Designer: B PIù s.r.l.  

Amazingly, this unusual piece begins its day as an ordinary (extremely tall) chest of drawers. With the push of a button, the chest of drawers swivels out to form a spiral staircase– storage and space saving ingenuity in one.

A Peaceful Japanese House Surrounded By Greenery [Video] Mon, 09 Aug 2021 14:45:00 +0000 Abundant greenery surrounds this peaceful Japanese house in Hiroshima city, created by Hayato Komatsu Architects. The house belongs to its designer, who embraced the irregularities of the site, which is made shady by a large tunnel and retaining wall that penetrates Mt. Eba. At first glance, the site and surrounding area appeared undesirable. However, the dense greenery that overspills from the landscape takes away the typical urban atmosphere. Instead, the obscure location created an opportunity for a home design that connects the lush environment with modern architecture. Living spaces have been raised 4m above ground level to take in the view, where a complementary relationship between the new garden and surrounding specimens mesh as one spectacular scene.

The intricate exterior of the Enami house, and its multi level garden, overlaps the scenery of the southwestern part of Mt. Eba.

The meld between mountain and architecture changes the cityscape, as it embraces the spread surrounding greenery.

Constructed in an arc, the architecture echoes the rise of the mountain, and the hollow of the tunnel that runs through it. Elevated gardens reconstruct the spill of plants over the mountaintop.

The unique home design successfully extends the beauty of the natural landscape rather than disrupting it.

The front entrance is nestled within two of the tallest fins that form the vertebrae of the house. The fins protrude forward to build privacy around the door and windows of the house, and to create shade from direct sunlight.

Inside the modern Japanese home, we find a light filled open layout that unfolds beneath the warmth of exposed wooden ceiling beams. The airy space was designed as a place for family to gather and spend quality time together.

In order to connect the living room with the best views of the surrounding environment, the living room had to be raised over four metres from ground surface. Entire walls of glass open up the living room to the green panorama of the mountainside.

A terrace has been built around the second floor boundary, on which to bed a plant-filled border that’s defined as the “garden” of this extraordinary home.

The garden terrace is where the relationship between environment and architecture truly takes hold, as the view of the garden overlaps with the more distant panorama to form the perception of a deep landscape.

The elevated garden has a gantry structure of different depths. It protrudes into the southeast direction, where the trees become sunlit. The branches grow a soft screen between the interior of the house and its neighbours.

The living room is dipped ever so slightly below the height of the terrace floor, which gives it a cosily cocooned atmosphere. An L-shaped sectional sofa draws around the edge of the lounge, beneath the glass. Relaxed, two-tone upholstery ties with the cool grey concrete decor elements and the square coffee table, whilst a brown leather section complements the warm wood tone in the room.

Black steel window frames and a black powder coated balustrade offset the light golden warmth of the wooden elements.

An inviting red area rug zones the lounge, defining it from the adjacent kitchen and dining space.

Built-in shelves climb all the way to the high ceiling, providing plenty of room for books and treasured items to be stored out on display.

A myriad of planters scatter across the second floor terrace, adding lush layers. Storm lanterns glow softly between the low hanging leaves at night.

Behind the kitchen island, a wall of glass cabinets reflect the sunlight and the garden vista.

A glass vase brings a sprig of garden greenery to the simple dining table arrangement.

Industrial styling gives the home a contemporary edge.

Each small corner of the home is populated with plant life. A hanging planter adds greenery to the small powder room, and a container of tumbling leaves soften the void that vertically connects the entryway to the second floor.

Ceramic vases and decorative bowls adorn the top of the industrial kitchen design with intriguing silhouettes and texture.

Darkly tinted glass doors conceal kitchen clutter from plain view.

The sliding glass doors open all the way up to make kitchen accessories easily accessible during meal prep times.

A chrome faucet brightens the grey concrete kitchen island.

A modern fruit bowls brings colour to the countertop.

The industrial staircase design carries a split wood and metal aesthetic.

Solid wooden treads build the base stairs, whilst open metal treads allow light to penetrate the upper half.

The bedrooms are located down on the shaded ground floor.

A family bathroom is situated next to the private rooms.

The bedrooms are minimalistic spaces in which to rest, sleep and peacefully rejuvenate. Clerestory windows keep the bedrooms entirely private from the street.

Family time blossoms where there is light and nature.

Blue bedroom accents freshly connect with the skyscape that passes by the high windows. Recessed shelving units are installed high in the walls too, keeping visual clutter raised away from the beds.

A large home workspace benefits from the uplifting green views, with the desk placed up against a large window.

An entire wall of windows brings sunlight spilling into the rest of the home office, where a modern chair is set up for a spot of relaxation.

Subtle perimeter lighting illuminates the modern bathroom scheme.

Birds-eye view of the property in its built-up urban surroundings.

Vivid Variations Of Red And Green Accent Decor Fri, 06 Aug 2021 14:45:00 +0000 It’s an uncommon combo for a two colour accent scheme, but the vibrant clash of red and green is one that pays off in spades when balanced in the correct tones. The three home interiors that we focus on here deliver the red and green decor palette in a variety of combinations. Our first featured home design is a rich rush of deep vermillion elements that encircle teal and pea green accent pieces amidst a sea of freshening white. The power of the white backdrop prevails inside the elegant and artistically executed burgundy and sage accented scheme of tour number two, and in our final modern interior that comes alive under bright beats of the contrasting palette.

Designer: Nazarius Shore  

Red spiral stairs twist up through the red and green living room of this 96 square metre property, located in Lviv, Ukraine. The feature staircase takes on a sculptural appearance under its solid vermillion finish.

A teal green sofa creates a rich colour clash against the colourful staircase treatment. A glass coffee table on castors carries a neutral aesthetic with a quirky, modern edge.

A unique floor lamp reflects the colours of the room in its thick chrome stem. A leather lounge chair beds a black anchor point by the wide window.

Light grey flooring falls away into the peripheral of the palette, allowing the bolder pieces to shine.

Hefty coffee table books fill a light reflective glass side table by the sheer white window dressing.

Off-white and pale grey microcement finishes smooth out a modern hallway decor scheme, where mirrored closets increase the sense of space and light.

Vertical tiles follow a slightly curved wall shape toward the front door. Decorative wall hooks dot the light ceramic.

The kitchen diner scheme ignites the taste buds with an appetite inducing ketchup red and pea green decor palette. Modern red dining chairs encircle a matching round dining table. A single wall of solid green cabinets colour the kitchen.

The green kitchen installation is momentarily interrupted by a window of workspace, which is encased within a recycled glass countertop and backsplash.

One green cabinet conceals an appliance housing unit to keep the run solid and simplified.

A wall of glass blocks shares natural light between the living room and a small powder room.

In the bedroom, a curved teal green surround cosily cocoons the head of the bed with an arrangement of neat bedside ledges and overhead shelving.

Small swing arm wall lights extend a chrome accent on either side of the bright red comforter.

In the corner of the bedroom, a mosaic of white tiles finishes a unique modern desk design. A fresh white office chair complements the clean look.

A round interior window frames a wide vignette of the home workspace on the landing.

An ultra small sink design and a wall mounted soap dispenser tackle the lack of space in the downstairs powder room.

The glass block wall causes pretty light play across the tiny cloakroom.

A distorted view of the living room staircase, via the obscure glass, creates watery red contrast with a wall hung green toilet.

Teal tilework colourfully encases the upstairs bathroom.

A frameless round vanity mirror almost disappears in the sea of dark tiles around the custom basin.

Moments of white tilework compose clean frames around doorways that define the shower and bathtub wet zone and the entryway.

Lower and upper floor plans.

Visualizer: 小主 小主  

Our second home tour takes place in an elegant and artistically executed burgundy and sage green accented interior.

Deep burgundy scatter cushions contrast richly with the ??sage tufted sofa. A solid burgundy painted canvas sets up a dramatic backdrop.

A black marble side table steps up the luxe. A chic lamp tops the tinted glass table with a clean white shade, which melds quietly with the surrounding wall colour.

The area rug lays down a plush white and pale grey streaked base for the lounge arrangement.

The modern area rug texturally softens a microcement floor treatment.

An arched doorway links gracefully into the next space. A round coffee table complements the architectural curve.

A floating tv stand introduces another shapely curve opposite the sofa, whilst an arched chandelier creates a visual anchor for the small dining table.

Glass flower vases add a simple yet decorative touch to the table.

Inside the bedroom, an upholstered burgundy headboard is mounted onto green colour blocked decor to create stylish contrast. Burgundy closets rise at one side of the room, whilst green drapes balance out the opposite end. A bedroom area rug transfers the green accent to the floor.

Our final home tour takes us to Odessa, Ukraine. This small modern apartment comes alive under bright beats of contrasting colour.

Whilst red throw pillows blend with the upholstered sofa, a yellow ochre throw brings contrast to the lounge palette. A geometric rug layers in an element of pattern that complements areas of textured tiling on partition walls at either side.

A green shelving unit is inset across the structural divide to provide an exciting moment of colour contradiction by the red sofa.

Geometric floor tiles lay an optical illusion along the hallway of the apartment. Louvre doors add interest to the entryway closet.

A custom-made desk and cabinet set builds green colour blocking across the front of the lounge space, which doubles as media storage beneath the TV.

A run of kitchen base cabinets form a buffet by the dining set, where two red dining chairs brighten up the white and wood arrangement.

LED ribbons highlight the bright accent hues.

More green cabinetry builds a fresh looking breakfast bar, which takes on a tropical essence under a built-in bed of indoor plants. A red kitchen backsplash colourfully balances out the opposite side of the space.

Clean geometric lines shape the modern home design, creating a facade of elegant simplicity. At night, the glass-walled facade comes alive with soft interior lighting. Exterior lights dramatically illuminate the rugged rock face.

The linear fa?ade is capped with a slatted overhanging roof that causes symmetrical shadows to fall upon the floor in an illusionary decked effect. The floor-to-ceiling push-button windows effortlessly adjoin the indoor and outdoor living spaces, achieving an expanded sense of space.

The fresh interior design for Villa Statera, created by Terraza Balear, is a clean concept of linearity to complement the architecture of the home. The decor is executed in a natural palette that melds with the surrounding environment of the beachside abode and incorporates high-end brands like B&B Italia, and a designer kitchen by Poliform.

An L-shaped sofa pulls away from the glazed walls, forming a cosy arrangement around a modern fireplace that is purely decorative in the warmer months. Scatter cushions layer a warm pop of orange onto two grey-blue lounge chairs and the pale contemporary sofa. Decorative vases bring a sprig of greenery to a simple modern sofa table.

Outdoor furniture by Dedon provides stylish comfort.

The master bedroom has its own terrace with all-around breathtaking views.

The master bedroom suite also boasts a huge walk in wardrobe with a sleek storage system and a custom cut floor-to-ceiling dressing mirror.

Entrancing Textural Home Interior With Stylish Outdoor Living Areas Wed, 04 Aug 2021 14:45:00 +0000 Entrancing textural decor brings this modern home to life for a large family, located near Kyiv, Ukraine. Designed by Trush Design, the 750 square metre house features a collectable Ferrari that is displayed in the living room from within a glass wall garage.

Visualizer: Ira Kulyk  

The impressive modern home exterior communicates a sharp, linear aesthetic against the green landscape. A lush lawn rolls from a decorative modern pool by the terrace, to the edge of a picturesque lake. Mature trees sway in the breeze, creating a soundtrack of restful rustling leaves around the house.

Linear stepping stones cross the man-made reflection pool that runs along the front of the outdoor living space. The Spun chair designed by Thomas Heatherwick for Magis dots small sculptural moments along its grassy edge.

There is a dreamy hammock space set up at one end of the sheltered terrace, where the home owners can read or snooze under a blanket in the cool shade. The glass wall garage brings a glimpse of the homeowner’s collectable Ferrari to the outdoor living room, which is sharply outlined with LED ribbons.

A massive modern sculpture stands on a platform within the boundary of the pool. Its hammered metal finish playfully reflects the sunlight just like the rippling waters below.

A sculptural wall light glows behind the outdoor sofa, where it highlights formwork concrete and slatted panel walls.

Living spaces surround the terrace on two sides, creating a courtyard design.

A lounge area juts out across the plot toward the spectacular lakeside vista. A modern fireplace makes the spot feel cosy and welcoming.

An outdoor kitchen features a state of the art grill.

Huge boulders nestle up against the front of the house, bedded within a naturalistic groundcover. The organic forms spectacularly contradict the building’s flat modernity, and the sleek Ferrari that can be glimpsed through the glass in the facade.

In the main living room, sections of a plush dark grey modern sofa are arranged into a large L-shaped formation with side tables neatly inserted between.

Square coffee tables gleam under a burnished metal finish.

A fabulous arched floor lamp interacts with a looped ceiling light across the dining area.

A contemporary fireplace flickers underneath the TV mount, which is suspended from the ceiling. Modern wall lights burn brightly along the hallway behind it.

Unique directional pendant lights softly illuminate the glass wall garage and its showpiece.

Rough rock walls make a deeply contrasting frame around the sleek lines of the collectable car.

Another large bronze sculpture is displayed within the home, close by the view of the huge outdoor version.

Boards of wooden flooring artfully interrupt the concrete screed.

The long formal dining table seats 12 diners, a must for the large a family,

Upstairs, there is a comfortable terrace with a stylish modular sofa. Built-in planters provide a brush of tranquil greenery.

Glass balustrades leave the beautiful panorama unobstructed.

A modern painting brings a blast of blue to the formwork walls.

Pebble-like stools sit in observation of the artwork.

LED ribbons thread light along the hallway.

The kitchen is a crisp contemporary line of travertine and metal.

Mood lighting brings the luxurious kitchen to life.

The designers packed the entire layout with edge lighting to instil a cosy atmosphere in the evenings.

A mini inner garden grows a bonsai tree by the staircase.

In the bedroom, an illuminated art installation makes up a striking headboard wall.

The large wall art spans the width of a modern upholstered bed and a unique bedside table with a designer table lamp.

A floating vanity table runs off the wall of wardrobes. A frameless custom cut mirror makes the small vanity area feel much larger and lighter.

This dramatic grey bedroom is textured with ridged rock wall panels, which are spotlighted under a modern floor lamp and warm perimeter lights.

A freeform bedroom rug edges out from under the upholstered bed.

The sculptural bedroom chair is the Serie Up 2000 chair by Gaetano Pesce for B&B Italia.

A luxurious square bathtub is sunken into a deep platform with steps leading up to it. Wide windows open the bathing area up to spectacular lakeside views.

A wall hung grey toilet and bidet set are situated within the screened shower area. A recessed shelving unit stores toiletries and rolled towels.

Subtle mood lighting creates a relaxing shower ambiance.

Freeform wall mirrors form an artistic trio over the basin. Bronze wall panels hug the edges of the contemporary bathroom vanity.

In the powder room, a rock face feature wall boldly backs the bathroom vanity area.

A black toilet and flush plate quietly camouflage against a shadowy black cistern concealment wall. Stem bathroom vanity lights descend upon the modern stone basin and countertop. A bespoke horizontal mirror cleanly cuts across the rugged backsplash. See more inspiration for vanity mirrors here.

The final bathroom on the property takes on a much lighter decor aesthetic, with all-white sanitaryware and pale concrete walls.

A Luxurious Terraced Villa With Pool In The Mediterranean [Video] Mon, 02 Aug 2021 14:45:00 +0000 Linear concrete volumes build this sleek and luxurious 1,260 square metre home design, located in Son Vida, Palma, Spain. Created by Osvaldo Luppi Architects, the deluxe villa features extensive terraces, which include a large outdoor swimming pool to enjoy under the Mediterranean sun. Outdoor living areas make the most of long days and warm nights on the south-facing multi-level terraces, which are stepped to follow the topography of the hillside. Walls of glass retract to adjoin the exterior with interior volumes, where clean white & grey walls and golden wood tone meld in marvellous spaces. Be sure to check out the walkthrough video of this spectacular Mediterranean villa at the end of the tour.

The modern facade slices crisply into the rolling hillside of this sought after residential area, which is referred to locally as the ‘Beverly HIlls of Mallorca’.

In this elevated position, Villa Marola boasts fabulous views over the capital city of Palma and the surrounding countryside.

The luxury house exterior comes alive at night, issuing great lengths of light from its glass fronted volume.

Inside the luxurious property, clean white & pale grey walls colour a fresh feel, whilst golden wood tone adds a mellow warmth.

The living room is an airy space with a simple yet stylish composition of modern lounge furniture. An L-shaped sofa gently hugs the perimeter of a rounded rectangle coffee table, opposite a couple of swivel armchairs. A modern fireplace and log store cuts darkly into the back wall, setting a stripe of contrast against the matt white paintwork.

The contemporary tufted sofa and chic lounge chairs pale into insignificance against the spellbinding view of Palma. Retractable glass walls let in the blissful breeze.

At night, the surrounding hills twinkle magically with the lights of the capital city. Inside, recessed spotlights distribute an even glow, whilst perimeter LEDs highlight the texture of a wood slatted TV feature wall.

Great wooden columns separate the lounge space from the dining area. Two modern dining room chandeliers hang low over a luxe white marble dining table and stylish upholstered dining chairs.

Built-in units float a few inches above the floor tile to maintain the perception of open space in the clean layout. A planter is bedded into the top to create a run of greenery through the dining room, all the way to the fireplace in the lounge.

Another bed of plants is cut right into the floor of the hallway, which creates a sense connection with the green hillside location. Textured concrete ripples a cool backdrop, whilst wood wall cladding offers a counteracting smooth finish and warmth.

Outdoor chaise lounge chairs pull up poolside, introducing a pastel pink accent that playfully contrasts with the cool blue pool.

The rectangular pool shimmers across the front of the interior lounge and dining space, whilst the outdoor lounge aligns with the kitchen.

A modern outdoor sofa is positioned for comfortably taking in the views.

A huge white marble and wood grain kitchen island faces toward the wide pool terrace and the sweeping panorama. Unique kitchen pendant lights fall at varying heights to create a sculptural installation of lustrous copper.

The luxurious white marble and wooden finishes continue across the back wall of the kitchen, where a deeply recessed planter is built into the backsplash to simulate a mini landscape view in the windowless wall.

A sculptural staircase design connects all three levels of the villa, rising from the access area at the base of the property, through the main living level and up to the private bedrooms.

Solid wood balustrades carve out a rise of asymmetrical geometry.

Wood slatted feature walls bring texture to the stairwell, which is exaggerated under concealed LED ribbons.

Upstairs, a master suite and three bedrooms each have their own ensuite bathroom and balcony area. The door to the ensuite and closets are camouflaged within a wall of smooth wood panelling in the master. A glass balustrade allows the majestic hillside views to be enjoyed from an outdoor chair, from the cushioned end of bed bench, or when enjoying breakfast in bed.

A generously sized double sink bathroom vanity sweeps along one whole wall of the large master bathroom.

A built-in bathtub fills the adjacent wall, positioned perfectly for gazing out at the vista.

Floor vases fashion a pretty moment in a blank hallway.

The property also has an indoor pool down on the access level.

The long driveway that leads up to the home enters the shade of a carport before turning into the garage.

A skylight fills the deep cover with natural light.

Plant beds grow a welcoming entryway.

The restricted palette of materials enhances continuity between interior and exterior areas.

Public floor plan with social living areas, including the main sun terrace, swimming pool, and the outdoor living room. We can also see the long and dramatic driveway approach to the property here. A tall outdoor staircase provides a pedestrian entrance.

On the access floor plan, we can see where the car parking garage is bedded beneath the main living room, and where the indoor swimming pool is situated beneath the sun deck.

The private floor plan illustrates the layout of the master bedroom suite with large ensuite bathroom and private terrace. We can also observe the even distribution of space between the remaining three bedrooms, ensuite bathrooms, and terraces.
