Fleur Prevost Exterior, June 01st , 2017. This residence in Big Sur, California doesn’t only have glass walls but also a glass ceiling. Even though it;s not entirely designed this way, these elements give it a lot of character. The house was designed by Fougeron Architecture and is composed of two rectangular boxes linked by a library entirely wrapped in glass. It’s always interesting to see how each architect deals with their clients’ requests and how it all starts to take shape little by little. Gogl Architekten designed in 2012 a house in Kitzbühel. The client wanted it to include an open room filled with light and with a connection to the garden and views of the mountains for the rest of the spaces. This is the result.
Huguetta Pasquier Bathroom, June 08th , 2017. Another reason why freestanding bathtubs are so appreciated is because of the large variety of materials used to build them. A stone bathtub is a very beautiful choice. It has a unique texture and usually rich colors. It would be a perfect centerpiece for the bathroom.
Chantay Clement Bathroom, June 17th , 2017. If replacing your bathroom’s suite is a little too much to take on straight after the Christmas frenzy, why not bring a little fun to your washroom by updating your choice of wall coverings. Add a selection of random tiles to your walls, and floor, so that you get a vibrant look. Alternatively, use a novelty bathtub and link it, visually, to your wall with a mural or by having some bespoke wallpaper made, like this wonderfully strange cow design. Alternatively, use the tiles themselves as a mural. Many tile manufacturers will be able to give you a range of tile finishes that will suit your mural design ideas. If you don’t have the budget for an extensive makeover in the New Year, update your bathroom with a few well chosen accessories. How about a simple wooden bath tub caddy? They are ideal if you like to have a drink or a book with you when you bathe and great if you want to balance a mirror to shave. There are some cool bath mats available these days which will update your washroom with a minimum of expenditure, but choose one that matches your towels.
Lealia Lesage Bathroom, June 09th , 2017. Vintage furniture always gives a room a certain unique flair. A vintage vanity would make your bathroom feel more inviting, cozy and intimate and it would also feel like a part of the home instead of being just a cold small space. This vanity, for example, also has a very nice color and a unique finish.
Chantay Clement Bathroom, June 07th , 2017. When you are living in a small space, designing your bathroom becomes a huge challenge because you have to do it in a way that you will be able to make the most of the bathroom, especially when it comes to storage purposes. It even becomes more worrisome if you have a washing machine and dryer and yet you do not have a laundry room or space to conveniently keep these appliances and make use of them. In this case, your bathroom becomes the safest bet. No matter how small your bathroom might be, yours is not a hopeless case because with the right space saving ideas, you will be able to create roomy and functional storage units under and beside most of your bathroom fixtures including sinks, cabinetry and bathtub. Here are some of the creative ideas that will help you save space in your bathroom.
Fleur Prevost Bathroom, June 12th , 2017. Having a bathtub in your small bathroom means taking up more space but if your tub is such that comes with empty surrounding areas by both sides, then it can ultimately serve as storage for most of your toiletries. Even washed and dried towels can be folded and kept in the spaces beside the bathtub. There are also customized designs that come with recessed handles by the sides of the tub which if pulled down, exhibits out-of-sight chrome baskets where you can keep a good number of your toiletries, bath supplies and other items needed in the bathroom. Have it at the back of your mind as you remodel your bathroom that the more storage ideas you are able to create from the fixtures in your bathroom, including sinks and bathtubs, the more convenient your bathroom will be. Apart from being functional to the core, these designs are also aesthetically pleasing and will help you enjoy you bathroom that much more!
Aiglentine Dupont Exterior, June 16th , 2017. Instead of transforming the landscape, this house in Wicklow, Ireland, embraces the site and its slope with its sculptural form and eye-catching design. It’s a house designed by ODOS Architects with cantilevers and bright spaces that open to the landscape and invite the outdoors in. Every project has its own set of challenges. In the case of this home in Chile, the challenge was to position it at the center of the plot and to give it the smallest possible footprint and a low height. Mobil Arquitectos came up with the idea to shape the house like a croissant and to give it large windows and glass walls so it feels open and connected to the exterior.
Celesse Legrand Exterior, June 02nd , 2017. The geometry of the City Villa is a very interesting one, being the defining feature of the design ARRCC created specifically for this project. This is a modern family home located in South Africa. Its design is a collection of rectangular volumes placed on top of each other. Some of these volumes cantilever to the sides, forming terraces. A stone wall contrasts with the concrete, adding texture and diversity to the design. Other contrasting elements include the brass front door which was custom designed and all the glass surfaces.
Huguetta Pasquier Exterior, May 19th , 2017. We conclude our list with a gorgeous concrete and wood house located in Southern France. It’s a project by Pascual Architecte who designed it with large glass doors that open up the living spaces to the garden and also with a large circular skylight carved out into the terrace roof. The skylight is an unexpected and unusual detail. It opens the outdoor spaces to views of the sky and it also brings more light into the kitchen, which is welcomed especially in winter. What’s especially beautiful about this house is the dialogue between the concrete and the wood, two materials that complement each other in a really great way.
Chantrell Meunier Exterior, June 04th , 2017. Adding a swimming pool to your back yard has never been easier, now that Mudpools came up with a very versatile and easy to implement concept. The innovation is the choice of materials which is quite unusual: shipping containers. This is not the first time we see shipping containers being repurposed into something else. You should check projects like the Containhotel or Dock 45 to see how inspiring the idea can be. With so many unique and interesting projects to be inspired by, nothing seems unusual anymore, not even a pool made out of a shipping container.
