The future of urban living
The story behind the house
Based on Bauhaus style, the HUF house MODUM 7:10 fascinates with its linear timber-frame architecture. The dark wooden frame traces out the clean lines of the facade, with alternating glass surfaces and wall panels. Style elements of purist architecture are present in the form of the large window fronts and clerestories along all sides. They flood the house with light and thrilling views inside and out.
An individual colour accent is provided by the entrance door in a fresh turquoise shade. The surrounding glazed surfaces in the entrance area reveal the stairway construction inside and make visitors want to come in and explore.
A welcome alternative to terraced living
The inside of the house beams with airiness and light. Past the foyer, the path leads into the open living, dining and kitchen area, which covers almost all of the ground floor. The light-flooded room with brushed oakwood parquet thrills with its loft atmosphere and effortless minimalist chic. The open-plan kitchen and dining area is dominated by the colour white.
The light designer dining table ensemble blends harmoniously with the open kitchen with high-quality, matt white fitted units. All of the kitchen’s functional details have been thought through precisely and are cleverly concealed behind the kitchen front or in the adjoining utility room. The kitchen island with hob and integrated counter-top area creates a central communication point for the entire family.
A new way of thinking.
Optimum utilisation of space
The house’s modular planning structure has made it possible to create a spacious living area, where it is easy to forget that the house’s external dimensions are rather compact.
With sophisticated coat rack fittings and cleverly planned utility rooms, the ground floor space is put to optimum use.
In this way plenty of high-quality living space is provided, where non-conformists have room to thrive.
This spaciousness continues on the first floor, which has space for three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The bedrooms that are open in the direction of the roof ridge, with their large glazed surfaces, show how compact rooms can be reconceptualised. The visible timber-frame construction creates a dramatic contrast to the light fittings.
It gives the rooms charm and atmosphere.
