MF+ Arquitetos Designs a Private Residence in Franca, Brazil

Casa MCNY by MF+ Arquitetos (1)

In places with gorgeously warm weather all year round, open concept homes are a popular option so that climate and nature kind of become one with the decor and lifestyle. There are plenty of ways to build gorgeous open concept living, but some designers prefer to make homes that easily transform into private spaces in minutes. This way, residents have the option of open air or shady, cool rooms no matter where in the house they are, rather than traveling around the house to seek what they’re looking for.

Casa O' by Despacho Arquitectos HV (6)

When you’re looking for home inspiration in preparation for building a house, it’s easy to scroll through all different homes, styles, and decors in search of aspects and features you like best. Sometimes, however, it’s nice to find a grand and impressive “super home” where the designers have gone all out and incorporate just about everything you could possibly wish for in one place, just to see how people have incorporated different awesome ideas in the past. One such glorious home is the beautiful Casa O’!

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!

Parihoa House by Pattersons (3)

If you’ve never been to New Zealand then you only need to ask a friend who has or read even the simplest tourist review to learn about its reputation for gorgeous sprawling green space, luscious nature, and waters fit for some of the best surfing around. It makes sense, then, that designers and architects in the area would be intent on building homes that take advantage of the views and the space available.

ITN Architects Complete a Renovation and Extension to an Old 1880’s Victorian Brick House in an Old Suburb of Melbourne, Australia

By • Jan 16, 2017

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.

The Hermitage by Refuge (7)

Often when we see residences and homes that are heavy on wooden decor, we think of cottages, lodges, and beautifully rustic chic aesthetics. Every once in a while, however, a contemporary designer comes along and changes things up, putting a twist on rich wooden features that comes off modern above all else.

Sebastián Irarrázaval Designs a Cozy Woodland Home in Chile

By • Jan 13, 2017

2Y House by Sebastián Irarrázaval (19)

When we think of large lakeside homes, our minds automatically picture a few things. We imagine either small, cozy cottages where nature is the experience rather than the decor, or sprawling woodland lodges that make a distinct but beautiful claim on the countryside. 2Y House in Colico, Chile, however, puts a new spin on hillside lake homes that’s breathtakingly unique and actually quite environmentally friendly. The final effect is nothing short of gorgeous.

M12 architettura design Creates an Elegant Apartment in Corato, Italy

SG House by m12 architettura design (5)

When we’ve lived in smaller spaces in the past, we’ve often gone out of our way to furnish and decorate them in as modern a style as possible. We find that the more clean and contemporary a smaller space is, the more organized and less crowded it looks. This isn’t why all small, modern looking apartments are styled to look very contemporary, but it sure explains our love for them!
