“Energy-conservative appliances were installed, as well as new windows that are energy efficient,” continues Carnemark. The appliances include a gas range from Thermador.
Other elements pivotal to the design include fittings from Dornbracht, Silestone perimeter countertops and large-format floor tiles from Porcelanosa.
“The bottom line for us is that good design usually ends up being green design, too,” says Carnemark of his company’s vision for the design process. “CARNEMARK’s approach to designing and building relies on systems that work. Saving energy, time and money works. Reducing waste and mistakes works. Improving the flow, the comfort, the quality of life – that’s what we’re working for. And sustainability flows naturally into all of these goals.”
Similar materials find their way upstairs into the master bath, where limestone, heated floors, glass and neutral paint tones lend a sauna-like atmosphere with all of the comforts of home. A spacious master closet and ample yet cozy bedroom complete the updated master suite.
Design details create practical solutions and visual connections throughout the seamless whole-house renovation. A re-oriented powder room offers more privacy. Large windows maximize garden views. A former window becomes a striking arched opening, allowing sight lines from the living room to the outside.
“Together, practical design solutions and innovative product details combine to open up the once-cramped, outdated kitchen, offering a favorite garden view in the clients’ daily lives,” Carnemark concludes.
