Binh House

Binh House

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.

Cat Hill Barn

Cat Hill Barn

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.

De Markies Mobile Home

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.

Downley House

Downley House

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.

I know it’s not a home, but the website is called The House Tours after all and this is a house, so we’re touring it. The curved roofs and the fact that there’s a infinity pool going right through the middle of the house is what makes it so great. This is that kind of house that you keep looking at instead of the sea that’s right behind it.

With that kind of money per night, you also get a driver, a chef, a maid and a butler.

House at Mols Hills

House at Mols Hills

I’m going to break some news to you: in Denmark it rains a lot. As a consequence, most of the houses have big windows and no curtains, for the danes to get every sunshine they can in a year. This house takes it to the next level with walls made out of glass almost all around the house.

The result is a breath taking living space with the view you’ve always wanted. See for yourself!

Chateau Artisan

Chateau Artisan

We’ll start off strong with a french style house build in 2007 in Miami. This 14 acres worth of proprety is exactly how I imagine past french people lived. A house surrounded by water, perfect landscape job and a staircase entrance.

Chateau Artisan has a pool with a fountain in the middle of it, a terace jacuzzi, koi pond and I would guess plenty of storage.
