At first glance, the modest composition of Maison Hiltiti's three simple wooden-clad volumes might not reveal the true complexity and unity that lies within. Designed by Atelier Ordinaire, this retreat surprises visitors with its thoughtfully crafted spaces and intricate details.
Embracing the beauty of nature and simplicity, Maison Hiltiti stands as an example of how an unassuming exterior can conceal a world of intricate design and a celebration of natural materials. Upon stepping inside, one can truly appreciate the vastness of the space and the richness of its design details. The precise arrangement of windows, complete with wide windowsills and plush cushions, frame the horizontal views of the town and lake, immersing the inhabitants in the serene beauty of nature.
The landscape outside is beautifully integrated into the interior, which is adorned with spruce wood (CLT panel construction) on every conceivable surface - from floors and stairs to ceilings. Even the bathrooms, especially the showers, are fully clad in wood, barring the shower tray.
The interior design of Maison Hiltiti is marked by a multi-layered and well-thought-out program, aimed at providing comfort and convenience to the inhabitants. Intimate spaces are cleverly placed in unexpected locations, such as a cozy work area tucked under the staircase and inviting window nooks in the upper bedrooms and corridors.
The craftsmanship of Maison Hiltiti is evident in the intricate wood joinery and the consistent use of natural materials throughout the retreat. Furniture pieces are carefully selected to blend seamlessly into the design narrative. The minimalist sofa, for instance, features a wooden base complemented by handmade cushions and upholstery, ensuring that no element disrupts the symphony of design gestures.
Maison Hiltiti is a testament to the artful union of modesty and complexity in design. By masterfully weaving together nature, simplicity, and intricate details, Atelier Ordinaire has crafted the retreat into an unforgettable experience that celebrates the beauty of design and its ability to connect us with our surroundings.
