The Oak Project apartments, for Gindi Holdings, was designed by Rani Ziss Architects with interior design completed by the impressive team at Ando Studio. The spaces are streamlined, “less is more”, contemporary interiors; characterized by clean lines and a minimalist look.
Contemporary homes feel modern, fresh, and functional — while still feeling warm and welcoming. Neutral colors are used in abundance as the backdrop for contemporary rooms. With a toned-down background allowing shapes and textures to take the spotlight.
With a largely monochrome palette, interior styling provides the perfect backdrop to infuse any new homeowners personality. Structural design as beautiful as this needs a “less is more" interior to accomplish balance.
More neutral wizardry waves its wand over the rooms of these apartments, where neutral has a result far from insipid, but instead appears gutsy and sharp in its approach, using the perfect amount of dark base notes to ground the light walled scheme.
Even the outdoors exemplify the clean monochromatic palette of the interiors.
The apartments are indoor/outdoor living.

For a streamlined, "less is more" home, a contemporary style is the way to go. Characterized by clean lines and a minimalist look, a contemporary home feels modern, fresh, and functional — while still feeling warm and welcoming. Neutral colors are used in abundance as the backdrop for contemporary rooms. With a toned-down background, shapes and textures take the spotlight. Expansive windows, open floor plans, and lots of natural light are key characteristics of contemporary home design.
White may be simple but it’s never dull. White reflects light and ultimately, a white palette can open up a room, create an inviting space, and provide a platform from which furniture, art, and accessories can really pop.
There is something so refreshing about an all white room, so crisp and clean. When we come across images of white rooms they can seem so appealing – an antidote to our busy lives. These rooms convey a feeling of simplicity and calm.
