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.

In our experience, there’s a certain level of excitement that comes with being able to tell that a home is beautifully modern and contemporarily decorated before you even step through the doors. This is usually evident from the inclusion of big, gorgeous windows, clean, industrial materials, and unique angles on the home’s exterior. Abeel House is a stunning example of what we mean!

Are you a nature enthusiasts with years of camping under your belt but you’ve been looking for a way to enjoy the relaxing outdoors without living rough? Some people build woodland shelters that give them a little more coverage when they need to escape but some of these structures are beyond rustic. In recent years, designers have been taking shelters like these as an opportunity to get creative in minimalist ways and try their hand at creating beautiful micro-living spaces. Ark Shelter is a stellar example of the kind of little woodland haven we mean.

For some homeowners, architects, and designers, it’s all about interiors. Perhaps you’re quite pleased with the structure and design of your home on the outside but the inside could use a facelift? In our experience, these make for some of the most unique living spaces, particularly when there’s wooden finish involved. We’re always obsessed with the inclusion of gorgeously glossed or textured wood in home decor, but there’s a specific kind of style that we’ve been crazy for lately: unfinished chic. We find this aesthetic particularly intriguing when it’s combined with wood that has, in fact, been stained and finished in other areas of the house.

Have you ever seen extended roof home designs where the edge of the roof hangs lower than usual, bringing the top of the house down so that it forms part of the front facade as well. These houses aren’t uncommon but some designers take a much more modern or artistic approach to the angles and the way the roof extends downward. For some designers, this is a great way to set the tone for the style that might be built on the inside. That’s exactly the story with this gorgeous overhanging ceiling home called ETIE!
