The Glamping Tents Turn Camping Into A Luxury Activity

Camping is not what it used to be. Now, whenever people go camping with their tents they take their whole house with them. They have tables, chairs and even portable kitchens. Sometimes it all seems to get out of control and camping becomes Glamping. It’s the case of these unusual tents which were designed by ArchiWorkshop for a remote campsite in Yang-Pyeong, South Korea.

The tents are entitled Glamping for Glampers and it’s where you want to be if you wish to try something adventurous without giving up the glamor. Here you get to sleep in tents shaped like worms or doughnuts which take care of all your needs. In other words, you’ll have everything you need here, including a toilet and a kitchen.

Glass And Steel Contemporary House Built As A Tribute To The Past

This is house Varanda, a building located in Barra da Tijuca, in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil. It belongs to the granddaughter of architect Sergio Bernandes. She wanted the house to be reminiscent of Casa Lota which het grandfather designed in 1950 so certain elements from that original project were incorporated into the new project (the ceilings for example).

There are also other challenges that the team had to overcome. For example, the client wanted to preserve the old trees on the site so the house had to be designed in such a way that it doesn’t interfere with the trees. The house occupies an area of 140 square meters on a site that measures 1,123 square meters.

Modular Library Studio With A Flexible Design And A Prefab System

Lately there’s been a trend that involves building annexes separate from the main house in places such as the garden or the backyard. It’s the case with this interesting library.
