The additions, alterations and renovations of House Mosi required the architects to create a single-storey home with an urban feel to substitute the 1950’s feel of the original design, converting it into a timeless modern house, with a layout suited to a contemporary lifestyle.

The architect created a plan with four bedrooms and large entertaining areas. Large double volume spaces and flat roofs were included in the additions and alterations to make vertical expansion easy for the home owner at a later stage.

The house is divided into public and private spaces, the internal water feature and bridge is used as a natural division, while the entrance hall and a study are separated from the private home.

Fulfilling the home owner’s wish for an urban and open feel, the indoor and outdoor and entertaining areas are blurred by frameless sliding stacking doors that open up the whole facade and into a central atrium.

M Square Lifestyle Design created a harmonious balance between warm textured finishes and vast colour planes. The natural wood elements articulate texture and depth; while essential to the welcoming ambience of the home. The correct styling enhances each room and brings the architectural design to a full and complete circle.

M Square Lifestyle Necessities ensured that an effortless and simplistic interior space was created to complement both the design of the house, as well as the family that lives in it, using Italian furniture which they import, such as Molteni & C and many other brands.
