Tiny Steel And Glass Desert Shelter With Room For Only A Bed

Have you ever been in a place so beautiful you wish you could stay there longer? All you wanted then was a bed, four walls and a roof and that’s exactly what you would have gotten if you were to choose this tiny house. It’s a project created by a student and it’s called the Miner’s Shelter.

Each year, students are assigned o create a temporary shelter in the desert near Taliesin and each year they come up with all sorts of interesting ideas. This one, however, stands out and inspires them year after year.

For this interesting project, Frazee, the one who designed this whole thing, used the concrete ruins which were already existing there/ The stone chimney and the concrete walls were used as a base for this tiny structure. The actual shelter is a steel and glass box so small that there’s only room for a bed inside. The oxidized steel allows the tiny house to blend in and to become a part of the desert.

Flexible And Modern Community Center In Shanghai Made Of Shipping Containers

Shipping containers introduce a whole new dimension to architecture as we know it. They are affordable and they allow for flexible and easy-to-build designs to be created. It’s why they are currently used in a variety of projects, from residential spaces to playhouses and public structures. A very interesting project in this sense was the Shanghai Gucun community center.

Designed by the architects from INCLUDED, the center was designed to be affordable, mobile, scalable and highly flexible.

It serves the marginalized migrants of Shanghai and it can be easily moved around with the community in case they are forced to move. The project was completed in 2013 and it used shipping containers donated by OOCL.

Egg-Shaped Floating Home And Research Station

The Exbury Egg is one of the most unusual and most interesting things you could ever see when exploring the waters of the Beaulieu Estuary. It’s a very mysterious structure. Obviously,it’s shaped like an egg. That much is clear. But you can’t even guess its role or function simply because it doesn’t give out any clues.

This egg-shaped structure is both a floating home and a research station for Stephen Turner. He specializes in long-term artistic explorations of environmental settings and he worked with the designers of Space Placemaking and Urban Design (SPUD Group) to create this unusual project. The Egg is floating in the Beaulieu Estuary for a year, during which the artist will examine the changing patterns of its marine ecology. He’ll also occupy this time with a series of artworks inspired by the surroundings.

Mirrored House Facades Reflect The Beautiful Worlds Around Them

We often use mirrors in interior décor in order to make a room seem more open, more bright and more spacious. They allow us to do that by reflecting the décor around them. It’s this characteristic that has inspired some architects and designers to create houses with mirrored facades. It’s definitely a very interesting concept and no better way to make a house blend into the landscape.

House in Denmark.

The Mirror House was designed by MLRP architects and it’s located in Copenhagen, Denmark. The house has mirrors mounted on the gabled ends and behind the doors.

I have my doubts, though, that any similar thoughts even cross the minds of those lucky enough to spend some cozy wintery days in La Muna, a gorgeously natural renovated house in Aspen, Colorado.
