Congratulations to IDEA International shortlisted for Residential £1-2.5 Million (Project by Value) Award in The International Design & Architecture Awards 2019

design et al are delighted to announce that IDEA International has been shortlisted for Residential £1-2.5 Million (Project by Value) Award in The International Design & Architecture Awards 2019. 

Creating the ultimate bachelor home by blending the luxurious chic aesthetic of the Modern Man and the comfort and functionality in the space. IDEA International were inspired by the powerful yet gentle character of the client, combining graphic shapes with earthy tones and textures.


IDEA International were enlisted to design this luxury property, located in one of the most prestigious neighbourhoods in the heart of Sofia, Bulgaria.  The first observation the visitor has over the property is the complex geometrical forms in the entrance and it’s the timeless outlook. Echoing the past whilst preserving its contemporary flow. Going inside, the interior decor reveals itself through the chic aesthetic of the stunning dining area. The pendant lights hanging from the ceiling underline the shape of the 8-person dining table creating a spacious transition area between the various zones of the space.

The custom made kitchen follows the organic shapes and forms of the rest of the interior creating a surrounding veil of timelessness throughout. The marine blue undertones shine through the earthy warm hues creating a sophisticated ambient that satisfies the senses. The gaze of the spectator follows the hand-carved fireplace made from one whole piece of marble framing the living room. The master bedroom suite consists of a custom made wall panelling following the whole periphery of the room. The centrepiece of the master walking closet is a self-standing hot tub followed by the glossy shine of the bathroom.


The key aspect of the project is the blend between hues of blues and structural forms in the living room area, which allows the magnificent fireplace to stand out and underline the shape of the ceiling above.  The design in the project works well with the whole ambient and structure of the space throughout the timeless yet contemporary interior decor and architectural elements.
