Aiglentine Dupont Exterior, 2017-09-07 10:20:17. 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.

Benefits of this storage system are pragmatic – the toys are also given plenty of air space to dry out after a bath, and if they do leak water, it goes straight into the tub. Also, children are given easy access to the toys before and after bathtime, so they can choose their favorites and help put them away. And bonus: This method requires a finite number, so your bathroom won’t be overrun with entire flocks of rubber ducks!

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.

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.

(Of course, roll-out drawers are a bonus for accessibility, like those seen here, but not always a possibility.) One of the reasons this is a good idea is because your kids can access the toys they want to play with prior to playing in the tub, and they can also help put them away after bathtime.

The overall décor and style are important but, most often, the little details make all the difference.Here are a few ideas of elements that could help you give your bathroom a fresh new look for the next year. Carpets are very common in bathroom. They are practical as they prevent your feet from getting cold and they are also beautiful décor elements. A bold carpet with a nice pattern or an interesting color could definitely stand out. Make sure it matches with the rest of the decor.
Chantrell Meunier Exterior, 2017-06-04 14:44:30. 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.

Architects from all over the world are making the most of the wonderful locations they work with by including full-height windows in their designs. They get to connect houses to their surroundings and to immerse them into nature in the most beautiful and inspiring ways. Get ready to be inspired.
