Welcome to our gallery featuring the Ljubljana House, designed by GAO Architects.
For this family home, GAO aimed for a design that felt gentle yet sophisticated, expressing a dynamic and brightly optimistic character.
The entryway is unassuming, yet perfectly sized for the functional needs of the occupants. You can see fingerprint designs on the wall, symbolizing the entrance into a personalized space.
Within the central open space, the design made way for an open ceiling that covers the combined living, dining, and kitchen spaces. The fully open central area of the home is divided visually by carefully crafted visual cues.
The kitchen centers on a large island with built-in space for bar stool dining, while the nearby ample dining table features standard seating and a cushioned bench resting against the main wall. An oak partition between the kitchen and living room areas of this space doubles as a small spice garden.
You’ll notice beautiful tree motif wall prints and extraordinary light fixtures that are subtle yet not recessed. The private space of the home, including bedrooms, follows the same neutral color scheme with organic shapes and patterns. This consistency of vision grants the home a holistic and fresh appearance.
Viewing down the center of the large open-plan space, we see the bespoke grey kitchen island with white countertop standing across the rich hardwood floor from the light, natural wood dining table. The entire space glows with sunlight via expansive windows and sliding glass doors.
The kitchen is flush with sleek, hardware-free cabinetry in white, contrasting with the natural wood panel backsplash that matches the flooring. Stainless steel appliances and the sharp, modern style informs the contemporary look.
Here’s a close-up of the oak partition bars, with a series of cubic container gardens housing spices. The mixture of style and function exemplifies the design of this home.
Moving into the living room space, we see a large contemporary grey L-shaped sectional hugging a matching circular coffee table. The bright walls act in contrast to the deep toned furniture.
The sectional sofa sits directly across from a massive sliding glass panel, which can be opened to truly connect the living room with the outdoors. We can see the dining room space in the distance.
The dining room sees the large natural wood table flanked by contemporary white curved chairs on one side, and green bench seating on the other. Above, a pair of copper globe lights hang.
Behind the light fixture, we see the subtly elegant tree prints on the wall, adding a splash of detail and texture to the white surroundings.
With this wider view across the kitchen countertop, we see the fingerprint details flanking the entryway. Pieces like this, the tree print, and other artwork throughout the home add personality and style to the neutral hued home.
In this space, we see a pair of red cubic ottomans beneath a built-in key rack and sun-framed mirror. Sleek white storage panels at right flaunt their hardware-free appearance.
The guest bedroom boasts a daybed with hidden storage, standing beneath a set of gear-themed clocks and a large wall print of Machu Pichu.
The master bedroom showcases detailed yet subtly textured wall designs and more of the elegant hardwood flooring seen throughout the home. The bedding consists of grey and white tones, with a splash of color added by the purple throw blanket.
