On the impressive Lago Maggiore, in the northern regions of Italy, plans a visionary architectural proposal: The K-House. The unmistakable masterpiece was created through the collaboration between a talented young Polish architect, Kacper Niezabitowski and renowned Belgian interior designer Inge Lagae.
The U-shaped pavilion is the heart of the K-House, with its natural elements such as the inviting facades of lime plaster facing an impressive landscape. The reception hall leads you into an open space with the kitchen on your side and the living area on your other. The living room is where the award-winning Labyrinth cabinet shines elegantly and ornately; the piece belongs to KĀNA's exclusive collection.

The project aims to maximise space, efficiency and embrace natural light. The ceiling-high sliding doors made of solid oak create a smooth transition between the private and communal areas. What makes the bedroom so powerful is the choice of pure minimalism, where an organic element reinforces the connection between outside and inside. The repetition of natural elements, such as tree trunks, also shape the mezzanine that separates the dining room from the entrance. The warm atmosphere is achieved by combining the wooden hand-brushed furniture with the sleek interior architecture in high-quality organic materials. The pavilion surrounds itself with a beautiful Japanese garden and patio between lounge and entrance hall. This pavilion exudes an air of timeless elegance and tranquillity. It is a kitchen seamlessly integrated into the living space, bringing together dining, cooking, entertaining and relaxing in a single space. Thanks to their shared passion for noble organic and raw materials, artist-painter Alexandra Yan Wong and artist Isabelle Yamamoto brought this masterpiece to life in such a sophisticated way. This understated atmosphere, harmonious was created thanks to the choice of high-quality organic materials, providing timeless elegance and tranquillity. As a result, The K-House is not simply an architectural proposal. It flows into the symphony of craftsmanship, refinement and a harmonious union of art and design.
