This home, built by Kenta Eto Atelier in 2016 is located in Bungotakada, Oita, an area of Japan in which the summer rains are rich and plentiful. It should be highlighted that the extensive roofing is made up of just one unit, and its inclination is convenient when battling the slaps of the rain as it falls in curtains on its surface. As there is a considerable amount of space between both sides of the external corridor, residents can continue with their daily activities under its shelter even if it rains.

When you picture your “dream house”, does your mind automatically drift off to somewhere warm and surrounded by water so that you’re always ready for a sunny swim? That’s certainly the kind of house we would build ourselves if given the chance! These features alone already make up for a beautiful, enjoyable home, but some designers take it a step further by including several novelty features. Cielomar Residence is the perfect example and probably the house of our dreams!

Have you ever thought about what a house made entirely from concrete might look like, or perhaps about what kind of decor scheme might suit something as unique as a concrete house? Personally, we’d never actually seen a house made of concrete and when we imagined such a thing, we pictured it being cold, dark, and not necessarily pleasant for making a home in. The moment we saw pictures of Concrete House, however, we completely changed our tune and saw the beauty in such an unconventional idea!
Built on a sloped landscape, this wonderful home of wooden walls and ample gardens was designed by the architectural firm arches and is located in Vilnius, Lithuania. The home is surrounded by terraces and its walls are made of glass, which allows us to have a broad view of the grand gardens that envelop it, whether one is inside or outside.

Why choose one of these things, though, when you can have them all? Just check out B.A. Apartment if you don’t quite believe us!
