Unidrain – Selected for top chef’s new home
Unidrain are the selection du jour for the bathrooms created for Jesper Koch’s dream home.
Jesper Koch, one of the key judges for Masterchef Denmark and driving force behind the top restaurant Syttende, has designed and constructed his dream home. Located in Sønderborg, and surrounded by both the beach and forest, he has ensured the essence of these amazing surroundings reverberates inside the house. This unique and bespoke project has been curated by Interior designer Kira Staugaard, owner of Kira Design: she worked with the family to create a house full of quality materials and exciting solutions – not least the elegant Unidrain products.
“It was important to incorporate nature into the home, which is why the surrounding landscape has been invited inside with materials such as marble, brass, linoleum, and lots of wood. With its warm tones, the wood features throughout the house, and the brass details in the bathroom really catch the eye.”
Brass brings an element of glamour and an extra flourish in the bathroom
The vision for the bathrooms, were quite specific, as with the rest of the house any of the installations must enhance the overall look and should not just be functional. As such each item was carefully selected to blend with and enrich the house’s overall style.
“In the bathroom, the brass elements were selected to created a delightful contrast to the muted colour scheme. The golden tones are present in the linear drain and shower shelves by Unidrain.”
The installations visually meld and blend together adding to the overall appeal and elegance of the speace; when you step into the bathroom, you enter a serene environment enriched with exclusive details whose overall appearance calms the mind,” says Kira Staugaard.
The bathroom is equipped with several brass coloured Unidrain elements, including their luxurious HighLine floor drain, blending well with the large tiles and creating a contrast without being too ostentatious. The shower cubicle includes the stylish soap shelf from the Reframe Collection with an accompanying magnetic shower wiper. For this project the warmth of brass shone through, however, the complete Reframe Collection of accessories including shelves, towel hooks and toilet brushes all exquisitely crafted are avaialble in five different colour options allowing them to enhance any bathroom setting.
For Jesper Koch and his family it was important to incorporate nature into the home, and the surrounding landscape has been embraced inside by including materials such as marble, brass, linoleum, and lots of wood. Wood features heavily throughout the house, but for Koch the statement in the kitchen is the beautiful green marble countertop.
A home with wow factor
When designing the interior, the emphasis was definitely on creating a wow factor, no matter what room you were in. It was about providing unique experience, but this also needed to embrace a quiet indoor environment for a family with busy lives:
“The home has been designed in a way that is both calming and stimulating. The natural materials and the bright but subdued tones create an atmosphere where there’s room for tranquillity and relaxation, which is important for a busy family. At the same time, the home is packed with exciting solutions and bold choices, such as a steam oven and a meat-ageing fridge, hand-built furniture and exqusite yet practical bathrooms,” concludes the interior designer.
