Semi Detached Home in Leuven by Rob Mols Architect (6)

For some homeowners, architects, and designers, it’s all about interiors. Perhaps you’re quite pleased with the structure and design of your home on the outside but the inside could use a facelift? In our experience, these make for some of the most unique living spaces, particularly when there’s wooden finish involved. We’re always obsessed with the inclusion of gorgeously glossed or textured wood in home decor, but there’s a specific kind of style that we’ve been crazy for lately: unfinished chic. We find this aesthetic particularly intriguing when it’s combined with wood that has, in fact, been stained and finished in other areas of the house.

Turned House by MZC Plus (41)

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!

Casa O' by Despacho Arquitectos HV (6)

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’!

ETIE by Edouard Brunet and François Martens (1)

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!

Summerhouse-T by Krupinski/Krupinska Arkitekter (3)

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.

Parihoa House by Pattersons (3)

If you’ve never been to New Zealand then you only need to ask a friend who has or read even the simplest tourist review to learn about its reputation for gorgeous sprawling green space, luscious nature, and waters fit for some of the best surfing around. It makes sense, then, that designers and architects in the area would be intent on building homes that take advantage of the views and the space available.

ITN Architects Complete a Renovation and Extension to an Old 1880’s Victorian Brick House in an Old Suburb of Melbourne, Australia

Neumann Haus by ITN Architects (12)

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.

The Hermitage by Refuge (7)

Often when we see residences and homes that are heavy on wooden decor, we think of cottages, lodges, and beautifully rustic chic aesthetics. Every once in a while, however, a contemporary designer comes along and changes things up, putting a twist on rich wooden features that comes off modern above all else.

Sebastián Irarrázaval Designs a Cozy Woodland Home in Chile

2Y House by Sebastián Irarrázaval (19)

When we think of large lakeside homes, our minds automatically picture a few things. We imagine either small, cozy cottages where nature is the experience rather than the decor, or sprawling woodland lodges that make a distinct but beautiful claim on the countryside. 2Y House in Colico, Chile, however, puts a new spin on hillside lake homes that’s breathtakingly unique and actually quite environmentally friendly. The final effect is nothing short of gorgeous.
