Have you always been intrigued by historical cities and the way they were surrounded with habitable fortresses for protection! We have too, but we actually prefer an interior decor style that’s far different from the fortress style; one that’s clean, concise, and ultra modern in its uniqueness. As far as we knew, however, the two styles aren’t exactly complementary, so they aren’t commonly blended together in one home… until now! Mask House is a stellar example of how architects can break style rules in beautiful ways.
For some architects and home designers, the art of building a house is just that; an art. In fact, when a designer creates a beautiful apartment or house that they feel really encompasses the essence of a style or aesthetic, they often give the home a name that communicates that for the world to see. That’s the case with this breathtakingly unique home in Manhattan, New York City, USA!

When you hear that a home is nestled into a valley, what do you picture? Our minds automatically go to a green expanse filled with lovely sprawling trees, with a modest wooden house in the middle. We also envision open concept spaces that don’t just embrace a wider indoor construction, but rather incorporate the wondrous outdoors space right into your living space. Imagine how pleased we were, then, when we came across pictures of Carmel Valley!

Usually when we think about the concept of “wide open spaces”, we think of lovely green areas, big plots of land, and nature everywhere. When your field of expertise is building homes, however, you might start thinking about how that kind of concept applies to the indoors as well as just the outdoor world around us. That’s exactly what happened in 2014 when TA Dumbleton Architect designed and built a spacious private home in New York, USA.

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? Perhaps you love modernly styled homes but you’re careful about which pieces you pick out so that your home doesn’t become modernized to the extent that it feels cold or unlived in? Then prepare to be inspired by a home that fits this very description to a T.

We’ve always loved the unique aesthetic that architects establish when they build a home that differs greatly in style from the other buildings around it, or from what you’d expect to see in a particular area or neighbourhood. For example, there are few things quite as cute as a home built with traditional style and decor to make it look like an old fashioned structure nestled among contemporary buildings on a modern street. The appeal goes the other way as well, though!
