You can see on photos all of exterior is glassed, that creates a feeling of lightness and provides magnificent views everywhere. The interior is designed in modern style, bright colors are dominated there, but dark accents like columns, fireplaces or textiles add some originality.

Architects and designers from EXE STUDIO have completed the apartment design for a young business school student in Belgrade, Serbia. The total area of the flat is 69 square meters. All surfaces are painted in white with bright accents of black and green elements. Centerpiece of the design is a big black block placed between the living room and kitchen, that separated two zones. This item is a godsend in terms of functional – on the one hand, it is used as a stand for the TV, and on the other – it hides kitchen furniture. There are lots of hexagons in the interior; these designed elements are placed on the wall, at ceiling and at the box. They have three functions: shelves, lighting elements and masks. In general, the design is very creative and I think the young lady will feel herself comfortable there.

Villa G is an interesting house with a white facade, which was designed by Saunders Architecture company in Norway. It seems the house consists of multiple volumes interconnected randomly and looks futuristic. In the interior decoration advantage has been also given to the white color, which is well-complemented by individual accents of brighter colors. So the interior of the house is quite contrasting and modern. Description from architects: The house is large yet not dominating, modern but not pretentious. The house has a futuristic form but is built with traditional Nordic materials and architectural elements with a good basis in Norwegian building methods.
