An ecological home with a whole lot of soul
We present this ecological home, whose interior ambiance is extremely comfortable, with almost no energy consumption. A single-family home located in Ciempozuelos (Madrid), of a modern family that enjoys spending time together and also loves to cook. A family that whenever possible selects sustainable options, picking Neolith® for the main rooms of their home.
The skin I live in
A house is a custom solution that reflects the needs and preferences of those living in it. For Steven Littlehales, designer and owner of the house and of Línea 3 Cocinas, "you must adapt all designs to the needs and lifestyle of the client" and to do so you must "know their desires, ambitions and concerns extremely well, in order to truly understand the personality of the people living there, simply by strolling through their private home."
Spaces you live in with Neolith®
The kitchen of this inviting and cozy house has been created as the hub of the home, the space with the most significance, which is why Steven chose a sustainable—as well as highly versatile—material like Neolith®. For the breakfast bar, Arctic White was chosen as the color, with Nanotech Polished finish, adding maximum gloss and a more sophisticated image that combines perfectly with the rough texture of the kitchen island in Strata Argentum Riverwashed. The countertop, backsplash and shelves are all done in the same pattern.
Attention to the little details can be appreciated in the rounded edge of the countertop and in the white frame of the breakfast nook and around the sink. A play of finishes more than of tones, in which the different textures of Neolith® blend perfectly, creating a warm and lived in environment, with the whole family gathering around this space to cook.
A space for living, in which the practicality and convenience in daily life were sought, but never sacrificing design and excellent taste in the small, albeit big, details, with natural materials like Sintered Stone, a wonderful product that requires almost no maintenance.
Outside of the kitchen, order and precision are reflected in the separate space for the laundry room with a counter, wall and sink in Neolith® Calacatta Gold with a Polished finish. For the bathrooms, the model Blanco Carrara was chosen for counters and the bathtub niche, an elegant combination that contrasts well with the color of the furniture and walls.
Everything comes together when you see the end result. Natural tones with select green accents, forest prints for the décor, a lot of wood, Neolith, subtle contrasts, and great care given to every detail and the workmanship.
On the top floor of the home, Neolith® Zaha Stone was selected for the counter and backsplashes of both the inside and outside kitchen with barbecue. This nature-loving family, who loves design and is deeply concerned about sustainability, have created this lovely home with very different and pleasing environments that makes them want to relax and spend time with the family.
