By • May 14, 2018

This elegant house, done in a contemporary style, covers an area of 700 square meters and was designed by the architectural firm MY Group Architecture. The project was completed in 2017. It is located in Dar Essalam, a new luxury suburb in Rabat, Morocco.

The design was focused on creating an open area full of light with a very clear separation between the private and public areas, as well as employing a very modern architectural style. The villa consists of three levels where the architects’ main goal was to create a wide and functional space.

The ground floor contains the reception area, as well as a kitchen, a guest room, and an integrated bathroom. There is a smart mix between a modern and traditional Moroccan style in the living room, which stands alongside a glass wall leading to the swimming pool. This allows natural light to seep into the room, flooding the entire space.

On the second floor we find two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a parental suite. The underground level contains a wet kitchen, a bar, and a multi-purpose area which opens on a courtyard. The villa is surrounded by a beautiful garden of typical vegetation, with tall palm trees that shelter the place and the entrance, giving shade and providing privacy for the swimming pool area.

The modern black and white structure contains an elegant interior within, also done in a modern style. We’ll find a gorgeous kitchen, brought to life with a minimalist style, as soon as we walk in. The glass walls allow natural light to illuminate the interior throughout the day, all the while allowing us to take in the beautiful vistas while the corresponding tasks are carried out. All the social areas (kitchen, dining, and living room) are located on the last floor.

The bedrooms are on the ground floor, creating intimate spaces that safeguard the privacy of its inhabitants. The neutral colors used in the décor help create a coherent and consistent style between the various areas. On the roof, a terrace has been built. From there, the fresh air is sure to accompany us as we take in the sights.

Wooden Hut Designed by Interior Design JCC in Italy

By • May 3, 2018

This cabin undoubtedly has an interior that is marked by the rustic quality of the materials used – mostly wood in its rawest state, brick, and stone, a combination that always gives us as a result a warm and cozy atmosphere, as it almost automatically grants spaces a feeling of home and comfort.

Dining room in rustic wood and brick ceiling

It is located in Limone PIemonte, in Italy, and was designed by Luca Soave of the firm Interior Design JCC. The ceiling, which is built in waves that form arches, is completely made out of brick, giving the space a marked sense of character without making it too dark.

For me, and I am sure that for many other people, a rustic atmosphere is welcoming, as it brings a feeling of belonging to the place, and feeling like we can relax completely in them. Nevertheless, in its furniture we see a touch of a very current style. In the dining room, the chairs keep a modern touch that perfectly fits with the table of thick wood and creates a cozy space.
The kitchen, made completely out of wood, was equipped with modern appliances to provide all the imaginable comforts.


Stairs made of thick wood that form a single piece from beginning to end seem to float in the air. We find the same in the bedrooms, where contemporary beds with modern lamps in platinum metal illuminate the spaces without subtracting for a second the charm that the rustic details give them.

A Simple Exterior that Shows a Different Appearance Inside

By • May 1, 2018

Although the exterior of the home is simple and austere, the interior is completely different, and our first impression is that of a vast and open space. From there, the patio is followed by a complete room with two floors. The ceiling that continues to rise from the entrance is interrupted once in the part of the patio, and descends slowly from the top.

In a rectangular site with a long, perfectly adaptable depth in urban areas, the building, at first glance, looks only like a one-storey warehouse from the side of the road. In reality, however, it is a perfectly planned house.

Front view of the exterior

The entrance door was designed on one side, where a roof and a wall were also fixed, which allows ingeniously to maintain a perfect balance between privacy and storage space.

It covers an area of 137 square meters, which are distributed in an elongated manner, so the internal spaces have been designed following this direction.

Wooden Clad House on a Hillside of Mount Wellington in Australia

By • Apr 30, 2018

The Little Big House is located on the eastern slope of Mount Wellington in Australia, 450 meters above sea level, within a wooded landscape. During the cold months of winter, this is delicately covered in a beautiful show of glistening snow.

House on the hillside surrounded by greenery

It was designed in 2010 by the architectural firm Room11 Architects with the help of its professionals Megan Baynes and Thomas Bailey and has an area of 160 square meters.

It was constructed to be in the shape of a box. A clean volume with two exceptions; a service core and an air lock input. The walls, floors and ceilings in the main space are treated uniformly, in white, to create a simple light interior. The entrance, kitchen and bathroom spaces are designed in small sizes and finished in black, in contrast to the larger white volume.

The house is designed to be intensely private. Given the cool climate, the house has two essential strategies: keeping warm and finding light.

The Little Big House is lined with vertical unfinished woods that continue the traditions of local construction in southern Tasmania.

Each piece of wood is handmade to guarantee longevity.

A Pleasant Place as a Couple’s Refuge”

By • Apr 27, 2018

A couple of fashion designers felt a powerful attraction for this construction and, thinking that they could enjoy a pleasant life-style in this place, decided to build their new nest here, so to speak! It was love at first sight, from the different recreational options offered by the area, to the pleasant spaces where they knew they could enjoy a pleasant walk with their cute dog.

The architecture firm Cho and Partners, led by its team of excellent professionals Hyeonjin Cho, Haewook Jeong and Kyuhwan Kim, were in charge of carrying out this significant project in 2017. It is located in Yeonnam-dong, South Korea and has an area of 277 square meters.

The couple, whose children have all moved out to start their own lives away from the nest, wanted to have a set-up where the living room and the bedroom were united instead of making them each separate spaces. Their goal was to make the entire house feel closer to itself, eliminating any unnecessary barriers that could stand between them.  To carry out this unique idea, an equally unique space was made taking one space and creating two rooms by placing one of them (the bedroom) above the other (the living room).

House of Wide Open Spaces and Full of Light

By • Apr 26, 2018

This house of open spaces and full of light is located in the city of Thành phố Nha Trang, Vietnam and has an area of 445 square meters. It was designed in 2016 by the architecture firm MW arch studio under the direction of the architecture professionals Le Minh Quang and Nguyen Ai Thy.

Pool area

It is a project of individual house and is close to a noisy environment, a densely populated area with many polluted emissions of motor vehicles with very large volumes, very typical in the urban zone of the city of Vietnam.

This area usually lacks natural light, so they use a lot of artificial lighting to counteract the lack of light.

However, this house is designed in such a way that it makes use of wind and natural light, so it does not need artificial lighting during the day, as well as air conditioning. At night, it is lit using LED bulbs, which are ecological. It also takes advantage of clean wastewater and recycled rainwater to irrigate green plants. Therefore, the house greatly minimizes its waste for the environment.

In the living spaces, the openings with lots of natural light between the floors, the wind and the green trees are organized smoothly extending inside the house. Together with the sliding glass door system, the space is tightly connected, but still can provide privacy total when necessary.

Wonderful Cabin Surrounded by Thick Vegetation

By • Apr 25, 2018

This project, designed by the architectural firm of Lorena Troncoso Valencia, is located in the area of Pinto, Chile, an area recognized by tourism in extreme high mountain sports such as sky. It was carried out in 2016 and has an area of 105 square meters.

Views of the snowy mountains

The area has a lush vegetation of native trees overlooking the Andes; in the center, there is a small ravine with a depth of 15 meters, on which the project is located. The cabin is posed in an asymmetrical triangular shape in its upper part, inspired by the iconic shape of the mountain that can be seen behind. You can also observe from its terrace the landscape of the ravine in its maximum splendor.

The project is conceived as a large space with two levels, communicated with each other by a double height and a bedroom area on the first level. In the central space, we find the kitchen and living room that is connected spatially with the second level bedroom and at the same time this is connected through a bridge with a desk area. All these spaces are projected towards the main terrace that looks at the ravine.
The window of the main façade is retracted diagonally to generate shade during the period of greatest sunlight.
The glazed walls welcome the abundant foliage of the trees inside the hut, fusing the exterior and interior.

Residence with Marked Rebellious and Restless Style

By • Apr 24, 2018

This project is marked from start to end by the personality of the owners, who, with their rebellious, restless and nonconformist character, made the design of this house add personal experiences and dreams. The responsible for carrying out such a precious project was the Mano de Santo architecture studio in 2014. A project that has 400 square meters and is located in the beautiful city of Valencia in Spain.

View of the modern entrance with concrete walls

Its development supposed a challenge and a stimulus at the same time, since the plot presents a very steep slope and an orientation and spectacular views towards the sea and the city of Valencia. The house is located at the highest point of the plot and consists of two volumes, one embedded in the ground and the other placed on top of this slightly separated and light appearance using in this case materials and prefabricated dry execution systems and light (prefabricated concrete).

House Surrounded by a Quiet and Natural Environment

By • Apr 23, 2018

Forest and House is a contemporary home designed by Jung Hyowon of JHW IROJE architects&planners, a firm based in Seoul, South Korea. The home covers a total ground area of a little over 1,200 square meters, and was completed in 2016. It is located in Sunchang, South Korea.

View of the construction among the vegetation

The home was designed for a client who is both a professor and an engineer, and who will be retiring in three years’ time. This home is intended to be a space for him to spend his “second life,” and enjoy the peace and quiet of a home surrounded by a natural landscape.

From the perspective of the architectural firm, the plot of land on which the home sits is borrowed from nature, and so they decided to disturb it as little as possible in order to remain respectful. The end result is that the home is finished without a yard, as it was a mere human pleasure that would further intrude unnecessarily upon the natural landscape that surrounds the structure. This also serves to make the connection between the home and its surroundings all that much stronger, since, almost as soon as one steps outside of its walls, one finds oneself surrounded by raw nature.
