I fell in love with Kerferd Place the minute I saw it. With its strong rectangular shape, simple geometry, black elevation, and beautiful, clean interior, it's a house I would move into in the blink of an eye.
It was built for a family, but features many masculine accents. Apart from primary shape of the main structure, it has a sleek black elevation with narrow windows and pitched roof. The bottom part of the house is made of red brick, which blends harmoniously with dark surface of the upper floor. Due to the simplicity of its shape, from the outside Kerferd Place reminds of a child's drawing of a house (like the ones we used to portray in kindergarten).
The inside, on the other hand, has the appearance of a charming cabin house in Scandinavia. It is mostly white, with some furniture and kitchen floor being the only darker elements. I particularly like the look of the bedroom, where white hues meet toned-down grays and blacks. Whiting Architects, the studio behind Kerfard Place, did a great job. The architects wanted to create an intuitive, transcendent space, but the result must have exceeded their expectations.
