Are you intrigued by the concept of micro-living but you’re not one for big city life? We’ll admit that, even though we scour the world over for unique home designs, most of the micro-living homes we’ve seen have been located in the heart of thriving cities and busy neighbourhoods… until now.

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 of living in a lovely, clean home that lets you wander in and out to a gorgeous outdoor space from just about any room?

When we think of stone walls, we usually think of little stone cottages where the rocks are featured on the outside of the house, making it look like it was made with rocks found right on the country land. This particular house, however, changes that conception of “stone walls” a little bit because these designers decided to feature their stonework on the inside of the home!

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!
When it comes to sleek, angular home architecture, Japan is certainly the place to look for inspiration. Countless homes across the country feature beautifully streamlined decor schemes and both interior and exterior designs. NT House, for example, is a veritable poster home for the kind of clean, angular aesthetic that immediately jumps to our minds when we think “modern living”.

Few things are as beautiful as an open concept home. That is, perhaps, except for an open concept home with so much architectural personality that it actually compels the owners to give it a beautiful name to match its whimsical appearance.
