17th May 2023 | IN PROJECT OF THE WEEK | BY SBID ShareTweetPinterestLinkedIn This week’s instalment of the Project of the Week series features a contemporary family home design by 2022 SBID Awards Finalist, RS Interiores & IDA SRL. The inspiration of this Project came from the very first call with our clients, it’s a design inspired by Mid century décor. In Marba Haus we implemented much warmth of the environment to instill peace and serenity within the design. The use of wood is shown in the many elements of the design, for example, the wooden ceilings, or in the many modern pieces of furniture. The color coordination of the greens and terracotta inspires organic design. We used textured techniques for the wall finishings creating different dimensions and earthy sensations. All these combinations in the design have created a warm, peaceful and serene home, a true space for a family to live. SBID Awards Category: Residential Apartment Under £1M Practice: RS Interiores & IDA SRL Project: Casa Marba Location: Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic What was the client’s brief? The clients wanted a family home that reminded them of nature. What inspired the design of the project? The inspiration came from a phone call when discussing the project with my clients, they were speaking about how they loved to be outdoors and nature. Colors like greens and earthy tones, textures all came into place. What was the toughest hurdle your team overcame during the project? The toughest hurdle for this project was creating new texture techniques on the walls with plaster and sand. We used a brush in order to create arched movements and patterns on the walls. After completing this process we decided to paint over it. The overall aspect of this organic creation was a true work of art. What was your team’s highlight of the project? The highlight of this project has to be the combination of the materials and finishing and how they all come together in design. We were able to mix furniture, textures and fabrics to mesh the mid century feel with contemporary design. Why did you enter the SBID Awards? As a SBID Member and past winner of the 2020, I believe in sharing and competing in design. It makes us stronger as designers and inspires others in our field to grow as professionals.
