When we think “contemporary houses”, our minds automatically go to a number of features. For example, we start to picture clean white surfaces and colour schemes, bright pops of accent colour, unconventional decor shapes, and lots of crystal clear glass. If that sounds like the kind of contemporary house you enjoy most too, then you simply must check out the photos of Turned House in Treviso, Italy!
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’!
In some uniquely designed contemporary homes, the signs that you’re in for a visual treat are very subtle from the street. The outside of the home might look deceivingly “normal” at first, leaving you to be surprised when you walk through the door and encounter the modern visual masterpiece that is the interior. EN House is the perfect example of what we mean!
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!
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.
Have you always dreamed, since you were just a little kid, of living in a tree house like Robinson Crusoe? We have too! We spent countless days wishing we had a massive tree house in our backyard so we could run around high up in the trees, enjoying the view from above and breathing in the fresh air. Well, some little kids grow up to be designers, and some designers aim to make their childhood dreams come true. That’s exactly what happened in 2016 when Mallinson Ltd and BEaM studio designed and built The Woodman’s Treehouse in West Dorset, England.
Have you ever witnessed a house that’s so breathtakingly modern and huge that you feel as though you could get lost just wandering its hallways and rooms to marvel at the aesthetic and decor? Well, that’s how we felt when we first saw pictures of Wind House, a private home in Bangkok, Thailand. The more we looked, however, the more we realized that there was something a little bit more unique about this particular home compared to others like it: it incorporates nature! More…
