Posted March 09, 2018 07:13:59 Manhattan architect and design center design director Lutz Zielinski has a vision for the minimalist home: design by the book.
Zielinski, who has designed for architects such as George P. Gillett, David Hockney, and Richard Meier, said the center wants to create an “un-designed house.”
The goal, he said, is to create a “home that is simple, that is not built for the world.”
“It has a very simple and elegant feel,” Zielinks said.
“It is a house that doesn’t have many furniture or accessories.”
Zielinsky’s center plans to create 10 to 15 houses a year and hopes to create at least a dozen by the end of 2019.
Zilinski’s center will be a joint effort between the Manhattan design center and the New York City Home Design Center.
The center has a team of 30 designers, and its goal is to help design the homes that are the “lifestyle home” that Zielinskys is looking for.
Zichal is a member of the architecture group at New York University and currently lives in the New Jersey suburbs.
He said he hopes to inspire people to “make a change” with their homes.
“If you are in a house with a large, central window, you can’t be in a small house,” Zichal said.
Zichl said that when he first moved to New Jersey from Switzerland in 2003, his apartment was on a very narrow hallway.
But after moving back to the Hudson Valley, he says he found a new space and is now living in a three-story house with five bedrooms and three bathrooms.
