Edouard Brunet and François Martens Design a Private Residence in Flanders, Belgium

ETIE by Edouard Brunet and François Martens (1)

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!

Neumann Haus by ITN Architects (12)

In our coverage of freshly built and redesigned homes, we often come across architectural projects that involve updating older homes to give them a fresh lease a life. Occasionally we find that contemporary changes and additions can detract from the older charm of the building or look out of place in an older neighbourhood, but designers who really invest in the project and take care in creating contrast between the old and the new often create homes that are absolutely stunning in their update. One such example is Neumann Haus, a private residence in Hawthorn East, Victoria, Australia.

Ström Architects Design a Family Holiday Home in England

Woodpeckers by Ström Architects (8)

England is often commended for its unique city homes, proudly showing off old historical buildings crammed together with character in the streets of London and boasting old fashioned exteriors that contrast well with the modern makeovers the apartment has received inside. We wouldn’t be doing the country’s residential architectural feats justice, however, if we didn’t also take a look at the breathtaking homes creative designers have built and refurbished in the English countryside as well!
