There's a certain Swedish home furnishings retailer that inspires millions with their clever lifestyle solutions. You probably know who we're talking about, so if you've visited one of their stores you've felt it--that buzzing, electrical hum of people getting psyched up about living in a well-design, tidy space.
That's the same thing we feel about getting to design and build ideaboxes for our clients. We get high on outfitting the modern, active, smart lifestyle that so many of our clients live.
So, we brought the two together. The AKTIV is all about the efficiency of clever kitchen, storage, and bathroom systems exemplified by that certain Swedish retailer, and we designed around them. That effort became a new ideabox cottage utilizing a European influenced palate of design and finishes. It was an instant hit, practically a classic. The ultimate cottage. Efficient, clever, and now, everything ideabox!
The AKTIV is like a loft... that you can put anywhere!
Euro influences include:
- Smart use of cabinets
- Introducing Induction cooktop
- The ease and convenience of convection ovens
- Counter-depth refridgerator
- Cabinet-faced dishwashers
- Clever cabinet systems
- Durable laminate flooring
- A clever new master closet complete with laundry!
As you'd expect from us, everything is pre-assembled and move-in ready upon delivery.
The New AKTIV: A clever cottage
Simple, straight forward, designed around an active lifestyle, the AKTIV is a wonderful space. The living room opens up, extending to the landscape via the large sliding glass doors. The kitchen/dining is functional efficient space personified - it really works well as a cooking/dining/entertaining space. The dual access bath adds separation from the living space. The bedroom with its big sliding glass door is a retreat from the public spaces both inside and out. And the new closet/laundry space provides storage and function.
