To understand why the majority of clients remain so tied to their “traditional” homes. You must understand that, for the typical homebuyer, a modern home seems “cold” and “austere” - even “clinical.” HOLA hopes to redefine the stereotype mindset of a ‘clinical’ modern home.

The existing pitched volume, columns and beams of this 30 years old, 1075 SQFT private residences were formerly hidden behind panels. It is now exposed forming part of the featured clean interior architecture lines, pure functionality special layout, and minimal simplicity. This brings an ambiguous quality to the wall: it is solid but at the same time feels like fabric. This design feature detaches the wall from the original elements, allowing the beam structure to retain openness.

One of the biggest revolutions in modern home design was the “liberation” of the kitchen. By moving the kitchen into the open living space, it becomes a part of daily life, and the heart of the home. Moreover, since they’re so visible, modern kitchens feature the state-of-the-art equipment (to show off).

Open plan layout is meant to maximize space so you never feel cramped. Plus, the airier a home is, the easier it is for natural light to illuminate it. The relative simplicity of an open floor plan means that the space can be adjusted spontaneously, perhaps with movable furniture or storage. Just as the open plan gives you more flexibility, it also gives you more room to show your personality. The true charm of a Modern Home is all in the details - the art, the furniture, and the personal touches -, which means it, is a true reflection of you.

The calm stillness of the interior space contrasts but at the same time co-exists with the subtle movements, sounds, and rhythms of exterior landscape. The white canvas interior space act as a three-dimensional screen for capturing the daily projection of natural lighting, ‘dancing shadow’ of the green and unrehearsed orchestra conducted by the nature. It’s almost akin to amplified effect of the high volume cathedral space. Inhabiting the 5 senses of the surrounding, involves trust in the environment. It brings one nearer to nature through an almost cinematic experience of the daily changing landscape, and with no presence of sophisticated technology, the experience becomes even more intense and authentic.

"Living is all about positivity. Each day begins with a sheer whiteness that engulfs me; its purity rejuvenates. Pastel colors emerge to soothe and calm me; retro elements shape up, reminding me of rebirth. No matter how beaten, this heaven always refills me hope and strength to continue cycling down the path of life."
