Taking modern and tantalizing contemporary design to a whole new level, global boutique design studio Kolenik pulled out all the stops when they renovated this Rotterdam villa to be more sustainable. They also went all out to make it look like a scene from a twisted bohemian fairytale.

Inspired by gothic designs, designer Robert Kolenik was given a carte blanche to entertain all his darkest fantasies. This chic and contemporary design with a touch of sexy elegance was his answer.

Designed in a way to highlight both the concept of comfortable living and sustainable living, the renovated house uses electronics automated by Bits & Bytes and the latest techniques in water supply and management.

From illuminated tabletops made from pure white onyx and a lychee tree trunk in the kitchen to black onyx bathroom accessories, this eco chic house really does have it all.
