Dazzling white is the first impression that comes to mind when you enter the House G6 in Zurich, Switzerland. Architects Gus Wusteman and stylist Aliya Knightly stand behind the amazing design of the modern interior which is in contrast to the exterior originally from 1920's. Interior is as white as snow with original features, from the time of the house, such as arched windows and wardrobe fittings. The most outstanding element of this house is the sculptured frame of the floating kitchen that floats freely in space and can be hidden with sliding screen. And what is most beautiful: The cook can always talk to his guests, or simply enjoy the views of the lake.
The idea of the sculpture in space is particularly evident in the kitchen, which at first glance hardly recognizable as such. Here there are no shiny tiles still cold stainless steel surfaces, but also no unnecessary bells and whistles: The kitchen is quite simply the room is the view to a large arched window and the dining table with the Jean Prouvé chairs "standard" free. The French designer has already designed the 1934 and still today they are produced by the furniture manufacturer Vitra. They harmonize perfectly with the white and beige tones of the institution, including the chair "Egg" by Arne Jacobsen, who has skillfully combined with rough wooden tables.
