Aiglentine Dupont Exterior, June 16th , 2017. Would a concrete house look out of place in a forest clearing or on a plot where the only neighbors are the trees and grass? Well, yes and no. Look at Konieczny’s Ark, a project developed by KWK Promes in Krakow, Poland. It’s a house that was shaped by the site on which it stands in the sense that given the remoteness of the site, security was an issue so the architects found a clever solution: to design the house in such a way that only one corner touches the ground while the rest of the building hands over the edge of the hill. This solution also reduced the risk of landslide as rain water flown naturally under the house. So, you see, even if this concrete box doesn’t really seem to blend in at first, it’s actually very well adapted to its location.
Chantay Clement Bathroom, June 17th , 2017. If you are pushed for space in your home’s smallest room, install some storage units on the wall above your toilet. Shelving units, placed one over the next, are the simplest idea. However, a simple closet, which you can close the door on, will hide away any untidiness. Sinks and basins, that are recessed into a counter top, are quite commonplace and look just as good in a kitchen as they do in the smallest room. However, if you have sufficient space, why not go for a product that is both a counter top and a basin in one, a sort of shelf sink. These units give a very clean line that is pleasing to the eye and are easy to keep clean.
Celesse Legrand Exterior, June 02nd , 2017. It’s hard to pick a single great element about a house that’s as beautiful as the one that Bohlin Cywinski Jackson designed in Los Altos, California. The feature that we like the most about it would have to be the sunken tub and the floor-to-ceiling windows that connect the bathroom to the garden. There are numerous great examples of floor-to-ceiling window integration into outstanding designs and outstanding architecture meant to complement the location and the views.
Lealia Lesage Bathroom, June 09th , 2017. Bathrooms don’t really stand out usually. They are often simple and feature neutral designs. But sometimes it’s nice to add an accent. In the case of the bathroom, that accent can be the sink. Whether it stands out with its color, shape, texture or design, the sink can become the focal point of the bathroom without much effort. Sometimes the best way to make something stand out is to go back to the basics and use simple materials in a unique way. For example, this stone vessel sink has a very interesting design. Its natural, organic shape along with the use of natural stone as the main material make this sink a wonderful accent feature for any bathroom.
Chantrell Meunier Exterior, June 04th , 2017. When dealing with a lot of concrete, it’s often nice to balance out its coldness with some warm wood elements. It’s what studio Clauwers & Simon did when designing this residence in Belgium. The building is organized around a courtyard and its design is a tribute to Belgian architect Juliann Lampens who is known for the extensive use of concrete both inside and out the buildings designed back in the 1960s. The impact of the concrete in this particular case is softened by the timber and the views of the large garden.
Chantay Clement Bathroom, June 07th , 2017. Bathrooms should be one of those places that you can luxuriate in for a few hours without feeling guilty. No other color gives a sense of opulent luxury in the same way that red does. So, if you want to give your bathroom, or en-suite facility, a little extra try out using some deep red to bring a touch of glamour to bath time. Most bathrooms stick to white, chrome and occasionally blues. By going for lipstick reds your bathroom will stand out from the crowd. The key to incorporating red into your bathroom is not to overdo the use of the color.

The building is located in Carmel, California and was designed by Sagan Piechota Architecture. It’s a contemporary, two-storey home placed on a remote and extraordinary site.

They enter the house and they complement the interior decor while also opening up the spaces.
