The Mobile House You Can Take With You On Vacations

I don’t know about you but every time I have to go on vacation or on a weekend getaway and I see how much stuff I want to take with me I wish I could just take the whole house with me. It would be so simple. Of course, it sounds crazy when you think about it but it’s not that unusual once you learn that some houses can actually do that.

This, for example, is a transportable home. This means that you can basically take it with you wherever you go. It’s a home concept by Ábaton architects. Not only that it gives you the possibility to just pick up the whole house with a truck and take it with you but it also has a very nice interior.

Three Storey Extension To A Lakeside House Featuring An Open And Asymmetrical Design

We now go to Carinthia, Austria where we found this beautiful lakeside residence. But it’s not the actual main residence we’re interested in. We want to explore and take a closer too at the extension that was added to it. It was a project by Spado Architects and it’s quite interesting.

The extension has three levels which is a little unusual. But when you look at the whole picture, you see that, despite its size, the extension blends in beautifully and it matches the main residence perfectly. Because the original structure had a contemporary design, the extension was designed in the same way.

Heritage Home Renovated And Transformed By Contemporary Standards

Located on a site in a heritage conservation area, this residence can be found in Sydney, Australia. Since the site was protected by Leichhardt council, making changes to the design was not exactly a simple option. The renovation was a project by Rolf Ockert Design.

Alterations and additions were an almost impossible option for this project. However, after long negotiations and thanks to the direct influence of the mayor, the design the team had planned was finally approved. The main problem with the original design and size of the house was that it was too small to be a family home these days. But instead of extending the ground floor, the designers decided to add a second story instead.
