Contemporary architecture is all about amalgamating sensuous forms with flowing functions, and it would be real hard to find a designer home that does that better than this beautiful adobe. With a special ability to maximize the available space and fill it up with a host of designer art and furniture, it’s a creative design exercise that amazes with its shapes. Despite all the money poured into the accessorizing, it is still the simple, stylish and almost magical stairway that grabs your attention and holds you enchanted. Work of Kjell Ramström, the two lowest steps are left free while others are held together by protective glass – visually speaking you’d be tricked to think it’s levitating. Intelligent design with creative brilliance makes the staircase a part of delightful little heaven. – via
