The builders wanted her renovate old house and commissioned the Dos Architects with the task of designing a modern and cozy single-family home. First the house facade was renovated and painted white, then new, larger windows were installed. The living room was combined with the kitchen. In the end, a bright and spacious living area has been created that looks out onto the small, but comfortably designed backyard. The white walls make the rooms appear larger and create a visual connection between the first and second floors. Plus, the neutral colors are a perfect backdrop for the eclectic decor.

The architects of DOS have opted for an eclectic interior – they have restored the old colonial-style furniture and combined it with brightly colored modern pieces of furniture. The red leather armchair in a minimalist look gives the living room a kick, posters decorate the walls in the hallway, modern works of art on the shelves spice up the white fitted kitchen. The absolute highlights are undoubtedly the blue two-seater sofa made of plush toys on the ground floor and the pink double bed in the bedroom.
