The Binh House is a Vietnamese project, with the purpose of reuniting the urban cold and boring concrete appearance, with the energy and alive feel of nature. Basically, this vertical leveled building, takes the concept of urban gardening to a whole new level. No matter the angle you watch this building, your eye will always catch several spots of vegetation. Hosting three families, this house is able to provide them with enough privacy and connection, so everyone of them would feel comfortable.
Although form outside the house looks rather interesting and, let’s admit it, quite plain, the indoors are absolutely stunning. The big glass doors and walls ensure a great ventilation and luminosity, as well as keeping the inhabitants connected to the green space. Large palm trees, stepping stones, even fruit trees can be found at different levels.
With a study space, a spa room and an outdoor Jacuzzi, there is no way you couldn’t feel drawn to nature in an urban environment such as these.
Would you live in a barn? We are sure that, after reading about the Cat Hill Barn project, you will never look at your barn the same again. A team of architects, Snook Architects, managed to keep alive a barn that dates up to the eighteenth-century, by turning it into a full and functional living space. The project was a challenge as the team had to rebuild the roof that was about to collapse, and redo the framework, as well as figuring out a way to combine the old and raw aesthetic of the barn, with the crafted appearance of a utilitarian interior design.
One of the main points of attraction is the center of the house, where the kitchen and the dining space can be found. There is no floor above the kitchen, yet the house has a few rooms at the floor on it’s sides.
The bricks inspired theme can be retrieved in the interior design and decor of the home. Actually, there is a neat balance between the cold modern functional design and the old rustic elements in all the rooms.
Ever wanted to build one or two extra rooms in your home, just to enjoy the extra space, but you gave up because it takes a lot of time and resources? What if I told you there is a home that allows you to “build” two extra rooms in seconds with little to no effort? Well, the De Markies Mobile Home is all about that. This unique trailer house concept is meant to help you enjoy your outdoor trips at a whole new level. At a first glance, this trailer house looks as a normal RV, measuring 6 x 15 feet. Everything changes when the two extensive parts are installed.
The house is meant to provide enough space on the move, but even more space once the RV is parked. The two extensible parts resemble two awnings, in fact the name “De Markies”, means “The awning”. The opaque part serves as a very proper space for sleeping, while the transparent part, works as a great living area on a rainy day. This way you will still be able to enjoy your destination no matter the weather. We are definitely looking forward to see this concept approached by much more peoples.
How about a house with an unique design, located on the land where the most romantic writer of England, Jane Austen, was born: Hampshire, United Kingdom? This country house is stunning regardless of whether you watch it from the front or the back. The most impressive part is the entrance, with a design inspired by the old French wine barrels. The wine theme influences can be then retrieved in the house interior design. In fact, the home owns a special room that serves as a space for a wine bottles collection.
The house architecture was thought in such manner so it would blend well with the landscape. Therefore, when you watch it from the back, it appears as if the building is dramatically rising from the ground.
Crafted by a team of handy and talented architects, this home combines the dramatic and cold modern touch with the warmth of a romantic and medieval concept.
