When a talented artist selects a unique architect to construct his private residence while he designs custom and monumental items for the interior, the outcome is nothing less than spectacular. In this case the private residence belongs to the artist Jonny Detiger and the architect is Markus Dochantschi (studioMDA). This project does not fall short of high expectations.

The construction of this loft like interior, follows the great phrase ‘Less is More’. Sharp and clean lines with screed flooring, sample of natural light entering through the large windows and the prime colour white fulfilling the whole interior. The columns are a strong element in the interior space acting as a prime focus giving it character, presence and a historic element of reinterpreting a classic symbol in a modern space.

One of the features that make this house so unique is the items that have been created solely for this residence. All of the paintings, the light installations and the mirrored furniture have been designed by the proud owner Jonny Detinger. Simplistic forms with luminous materials expressing detailed glamour, artwork with different concepts and themes created for each space as custom pieces and luminosity through shapes and forms. Looking at Detiger’s pieces is like looking at priceless jewels through a boutique window. They poses a glamour and a unique quality.

All of these fixtures have been combined carefully together to create a residence that speaks out loud for itself. A residence that portrays modernism combined with luxury and art. Something that always grabs our attention.

    Hmmm...I do love the flooring. And that mirrored seating situation (I don't think I can dare call it a sofa?) is kind of magnificent. But it seems they ran out of steam and creativity on the kitchen. I feel it could have been so much more..

    I can describe this place in one word - ugly. Even the mod designers of the sixties would hate it. I actually like the kitchen and bedroom and bathroom...but that front room, with its gold plated faux modern furniture (and those rediculous pod chairs) is a perfect combination of gaudy and gauche. Uncomfortable. And what retard would want to make any music in a place that reflects 100% of the sound created - unless that musical equipment is just more furniture? ridiculous...

    A pool of barf is more appealing than this played out and dated lameness... When will young designers ever learn to be original?

    Love this space! I love that white retro looking stereo piece. I also dig that metallic looking "globe sculpture" on the wall (what is it?) All very original..

    I love it. It's not my personal style, but it's got fabulous style. Great art too. I'd love to know how the floor was done.
