This two-level penthouse with 295 m2 is located in one of the most important streets in the city of Rome, Italy – the Viale dei Parioli. Its owners have the privilege of being able to see the dome of the Basilica of Saint Peter from the comfort of their own terraces, every single day… We could not imagine a better view!

Cioffi Architect built this beautiful home in Palm Springs, California, USA in 2016. The house is full of light and good taste, including a particular interest for the arts. We are welcomed to the house by a large dry garden with cacti and stones that borders the house creating an impressive natural scenery.

When many people think of modern housing, their minds often go to brand new buildings that have only just been constructed. On the contrary, however, some of our favourite contemporary homes have actually already been standing for generations and have simply been recently refurbished. We’re huge fans of any design and decor scheme that makes an otherwise outdated building into something modern but comfortable. That’s exactly the story with House Four!

This modern and wonderful studio, covering an area of 500 square feet, forms part of an extension added to a home by Carney Logan Burke Architect in Jackson, Wyoming, USA.
The home uses adobe – a natural and sustainable construction practice that consists of a mixture of moist earth, sand, gravel, and clay – for its walls, concrete for its floors, and copper for its roofing, creating a unique space that perfectly combines textures and materials in its interior.
For some architects and home designers, the art of building a house is just that; an art. In fact, when a designer creates a beautiful apartment or house that they feel really encompasses the essence of a style or aesthetic, they often give the home a name that communicates that for the world to see. That’s the case with this breathtakingly unique home in Manhattan, New York City, USA!

If you love the idea of living in a quiet place, far away from the bustle of the city, this is the perfect house for you! It has a wonderful view to the lake, which we can enjoy sitting from the terrace or just sitting from home looking through the glass walls. Can we ask for more? This was the idea that SBM Studio had when they built this house in Kharkov Oblast, Ukraine, to create a space where the owners could enjoy the relaxing views over the lake and mountains that its privileged location offers. With a decorative style appropriate to its location, this singular home brings us the same sensation in its interior as on its exterior. A rustic air, a nature that floats in the atmosphere and transports us.

In cities where historical buildings have stood for decades, it can be difficult to create a new space among the homes that already stand. Even when designers aren’t worried about matching the aesthetics and facades of the other homes on the street, they still have to consider their space carefully and, in most cases, they have to build upward! That was the case with this CAS 48 House and the final product, though wedged between two very different buildings, is simply stunning.
Have you ever looked at a house and, even just from standing on the sidewalk, you can just feel a thoroughly modern vibe from it building? Well, we think that’s what you’ll feel when you check out the pictures of this gorgeous private residence as well!
