A tight budget can definitely limit a project. But even so, there are ways to focus on what really matters. In the case of this residence in Barcelona, Spain, the most important element was the landscape and thus the views. The house was built by Isern Associats on a very steep site which allowed it to frame magnificent views of the valley. A limited budget was also one of the challenges that the architects at JRKVC had to overcome when designing this house in Slovenia. The client wanted the house to be small and to have a design inspired by traditional rural architecture but with an ultimately modern character. The glazed facade with two tiers of windows is a defining element of the design.
This is view from one of the cantilevered cabins that architect Snorre Stinessen built for an island resort in Norway. Several such structures were built on the shore, with areas that extend outwards over the water. Also located in Norway, this summer house designed by Marianne Borge and Kjetil Saeterdal manages to somehow make its inhabitants feel like they’re outdoors when they’re actually inside. It’s all about the openness of the spaces and the fact that the house has huge panorama windows.
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.
