The Courtowers by Hashim Sarkis Studios (1)

In our time as great appreciators of all things home and design, we’ve come across plenty of homes and residences that bear “towers” somewhere in their name. Often these buildings are simply inspired by the structure of a tower or named after a tower that once stood on the land or somewhere closer. Occasionally, however, we come across a building that, despite being a private home, actually does have its very own tower!

Sunken Bath Project by Studio 304 Architecture (1)

Sometimes the best way to update an old home is to choose an area of the house that needs refreshing, leaving the rest of it to stand in all its historical splendor. Many professional designers and architects choose to do this on older streets that have strong consistency of style all throughout the neighbourhood, like countless historical lanes and roads throughout England do. This gives the family a fresh start inside the home, and maybe outside a little bit in the form of an addition, but still keeps the valuable historical aesthetic on the outside in tact.

Casa MCNY by MF+ Arquitetos (1)

In places with gorgeously warm weather all year round, open concept homes are a popular option so that climate and nature kind of become one with the decor and lifestyle. There are plenty of ways to build gorgeous open concept living, but some designers prefer to make homes that easily transform into private spaces in minutes. This way, residents have the option of open air or shady, cool rooms no matter where in the house they are, rather than traveling around the house to seek what they’re looking for.
