This beautiful residence is located on the peak of a hill in California, meaning that its key attractions include the gorgeous views that we can enjoy through the house’s numerous glass walls. At a size of 2,750 square feet, it was designed by Alan Nicholson Design Studio in 2014 for a retired couple, seeking to settle down somewhere where they could take in the natural environment.
When looking at this house, what we’re first struck by is its size, but there’s more – it was built with recycled bricks! It is uniquely wonderful for its residents to know that each piece of its construction has a previous history and, even better, that thanks to this the cost of assembly was heavily reduced. Located in Kharkiv, Ukraine, the home was designed by Drozdov & Partners.
This house, located in Boadilla del Monte, a calm suburb in the outskirts of the city of Madrid, Spain, was designed by MYCC Oficina de Arquitectura. Its objective was to create a practical and functional space with a constructive process that respected the environment.
Cioffi Architect built this beautiful home in Palm Springs, California, USA in 2016. The house is full of light and good taste, including a particular interest for the arts.

This cabin, located in the Boulder Mountains in Colorado, USA, has a total area of 2,760 ft2 and was constructed by Renée del Gaudio in 2013. One look at the spectacular vistas, which include a 360º view of the mountains, and we’re left without any doubts that this is a more than beautiful location.
Finding decent sized housing in the middle of a city can be difficult and expensive because many full sized housing options within the city limits are quite small but quite highly priced. Every once in a while, however, a designer comes across a lot where an old home can be transformed into something more contemporary. Have you ever seen, however, modern city homes that are so in line with stereotypical city living that they end up looking and feeling quite cold? Well, the designers of House Addition found a way to create a house with the perfect level of city contemporary in a decently sized, comfortable home!
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!
Do you come from a family of avid learners and scholars who are always looking for creative spaces to learn new things and grow their imaginations? Going out of your way to set yourself up somewhere new while you’re studying can be fun and productive, but sometimes you just need to hunker down at home and really get things done. Imagine, then, how awesome it must be to own a home that’s actually designed for things like studying, creation, and great productivity? The Study House is a perfect example of what we mean!
Out of the Box is a unique space; a quick glance and we’ll find that it’s rustic, while at the same time remaining airy and spacious.
