This home, located in Uruguay and built by Colle-Croce and Mariana Kusenier, has as its main selling point its impressive views of the ocean. Built with this objective in mind, the home was constructed over columns that place it 10 meters above sea level, and being first in line in front of the beach, the views can be enjoyed in its entirety.
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 welcoming mountain resort is located in Megève, a small skiing village in the Alps of southeastern France. Because of its proximity to Mont Blanc, one of its primary attractions is the beautiful views of the nearby mountain range.
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.
Have you always dreamed of owning a home that’s quite on the minimalist side, but doesn’t quite cross the line into the world of industrial decor? That’s a gorgeous aesthetic, but it’s also quite particular because there’s a fine line between the two when it comes to furnishing, fabrics, materials, and accessories. Adding a few pieces in more traditional textiles but including modern shapes or choosing one nearly-industrial feature and keeping the colour scheme light can help you strike a balance between the two. A transformative design project called Interior Renovation of a House in Mas Nou is the perfect example of how architechts and interior designers can work together to hit the mark!
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.
When many people think of modern housing, their minds often go to brand new buildings that have only just been constructed. On the contrary, however, some of our favourite contemporary homes have actually already been standing for generations and have simply been recently refurbished. We’re huge fans of any design and decor scheme that makes an otherwise outdated building into something modern but comfortable. That’s exactly the story with House Four!
When you live in a climate that’s pleasant and warm all year round, you’ve got the perfect scenario for a stunning open concept home. With every building that adopts an open concept, however, the challenge is to find innovative ways to still provide the residents with enough privacy to make them feel comfortable and safe in their daily lives. As with anything, a license to get creative in one feature opens doors for unique decor and design elsewhere in the home as well. KAP-House is a shining example of what we mean.
This home, built by Kenta Eto Atelier in 2016 is located in Bungotakada, Oita, an area of Japan in which the summer rains are rich and plentiful. It should be highlighted that the extensive roofing is made up of just one unit, and its inclination is convenient when battling the slaps of the rain as it falls in curtains on its surface. As there is a considerable amount of space between both sides of the external corridor, residents can continue with their daily activities under its shelter even if it rains.
