In such situations make a virtue of the necessity and accentuate what you would normally prefer to hide, like down pipes and waste pipes. Select brushed stainless steel faucet fixings and a towel rail that matches your basin’s waste pipe. Why not extend the idea and use metalwork for your basin, too? Chrome works well as an alternative to stainless steel. If your powder room is located under a stairwell it can be even more pushed for space than elsewhere. Don’t be put off a clear design ethos just because the ceiling may slope or because the room has an awkward corner to negotiate. Site the toilet at the place where headroom is most restricted. Keep the color scheme light in tone and hang a large mirror to give the feeling of more space. Another good tip it to install a hand wash basin that sits in a corner, so guests don’t have to squeeze past it.

The design presents multiple advantages such as the fact that the structure can be relocated and transported to pretty much any location worldwide. In addition, a shipping container pool can be set up in minutes and it can also be enjoyed throughout the year thanks to the built-in heater. The heater can increate the temperature of the water to 30 degrees Celsius even in a -10 degrees Celsius temperature. A divider can be added if desired to transform a section of the pool into a hot tub. The installation of the pool is simple and can be done by local professionals or by the clients themselves. The ground needs to be prepped and Mudpools suggests two common and effective methods that can be used: a concrete slab or 8” of compacted gravel. Of course, lots of alternatives also exist.
Huguetta Pasquier Exterior, 2017-05-19 08:56:35. Somehow, the idea of living in a concrete house doesn’t sound that appealing and that’s because of the cold nature of this material. Concrete is not warm or soft or pleasant to the touch like wood is for example and that gives it a bad reputation in a certain sense. But what we don’t take into consideration in those cases is the versatility, durability and in a way also the beauty of concrete. All of these are characteristics which can be exploited in great ways by architects and designers and these dream concrete houses are perfect examples.

It’s a series by Vo Trong Nghia Architects developed in Ho Chi Minh City. The main idea behind the project was to reconnect the city and nature and to bring more greenery into the residential area. This is the Binh House, one of the structures in the series. It has several terraces that act as small gardens and you can also see that vegetation has also made its way inside the house.
Aiglentine Dupont Exterior, 2017-05-01 09:33:16. For a house that tries to close itself off as much as possible in respect to the street and the neighbors, this family home has surprisingly open spaces and facades. This unusual combination was achieved by moarqs + OTTOLENGHI architects by combining two contrasting materials: concrete and glass. The design strategy was to have a more open ground floor while the first floor is closed and private. Both floors have full-height glass walls but the difference is that there’s a concrete shell which wraps around the upper floor, framing the spaces and blocking the views but at the same time allowing them to be fully open to the courtyard.

The owners of this house approached Bestor Architecture with the desire to ultimately be able to enjoy a private getaway outside of the city, a place where they could become closer to nature and to find the balance between modern design and organic simplicity. Their wishes came true. It’s cozy and humble but this charming retreat is designed to make the most of its location and to transform the views of the forest into a source of freshness of color for the interior decor. This is a retreat designed by Lang Architecture in Kerhonkson, 100 miles from New York.

At the same time, a high ceiling also means that there’s a possibility to have tall windows that go all the way up, like this residence that architect David Jameson designed in Maryland, United States. With stunning full-height glass walls that define an entire facade and even wrap around the corners, this residence gets to offer unobstructed views of the gorgeous landscape that surrounds it. It’s a house designed by REX and it’s meant to serve as a shared home for three generations.
Celesse Legrand Exterior, 2017-06-02 14:44:47. The magnificent view of the ocean which can be admired from the bedroom but also from the living areas make this residence a dream home. 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. When designing this retreat in Anguilla, in British West Indies, duo Frank Alfred Hamilton and Cecconi Simone chose to use a palette of simple and neutral materials and colors and to let the views become the focal point and the main attraction. They enter the house and they complement the interior decor while also opening up the spaces.
