Advent Fournier Bathroom, 2017-03-26 02:37:21. Tiled walls are very practical in any bathroom or wet room. Break up the monotonous nature of some tiling designs with a few splashes of red here and there. A simple waist level band of red tiling, set against white, is a good look to go for. This will complement other red elements in the room no matter where they are positioned. Alternatively, a vertical stripe of red tiles behind your shower fitting can create a similarly dynamic look.

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.

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.

The U Retreat was designed by IDMM architects on a steep site overlooking a sharp vertical cliff and nature and the surroundings had a lot to do with its unique design. The forms of the cliff and the trees that surround the building were inspiration for the forms and layouts that define the concrete structure.

This three-story family home in Pliezhausen, close to Stuttgart, is one of those cases. The house was designed by Steimle Architekten who gave it an unusual crystal-like shape. The unusually angled concrete facades offer an unexpected advantage: wonderful views of the surroundings. It’s a design that opens the house to the outdoors in an unusual but great way.

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.

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.
Fawnia Leroux Exterior, 2017-04-21 07:59:52. It’s a bit tricky sometimes to choose a site for a new house. The views might be beautiful but they can’t always highlighted so before they bought this site in Särö, Sweden, the owners of this house wanted to make sure they could make the most of the location. The end result was just as envisioned: a beautiful house that opens to the views. It seems that everything is mirrored in the case of this residence designed by MU Architecture in Canada, everything except for the views that make each space feel like a natural part of the landscape, like an extension of the panorama that can be admired through the floor-to-ceiling windows on the ground floor.
