This interesting sophisticated living on Downshire Road in Newbury in England was conceived by the architecture firm Mim Design. The layout of the house is quite simple. On the first floor there is a kitchen, living room and other rooms for socializing through which the garden can be entered. The second floor offers space for relaxing. There is a sense of lightness to the house, from its linear form and pale colors to the heavy use and transparency of glass doors and light-toned wood floors. The dominant material is metal which was also used in the house’s structural framework but also served as the inspiration for the gray and steel-toned color upholstery fabrics in the house. The interior with its contemporary furnishing is enlivened by large-scale abstract paintings. The rear of the house is anchored by a covered terrace and swimming pool, which are visible from the living and dining areas sided by floor-to-ceiling glass. The light enters the house also thanks to the well arranged skylights which noticeably influence the atmosphere of the interior.
