Century-old Barcelona Residence With Lots Of Personality

This is Casa Jes, a house located in Barcelona, Spain which has been restored and partially redesigned. It’s a century-old building with lots of character and personality. Designed by Nook Architects, the house still features most of its original architecture which has been preserved intact during the restoration. The building has a double façade. One is facing the street while the other is oriented towards the interior courtyard.

Everything except the kitchen and the bathroom was kept intact. These two spaces have been updated to the 90’s, so the styles are not that different. The layout of the house had to be reorganized a little.

Bright And Transparent House Perched On A Small Site Over The Ocean

This stunning house was built in 2012 in Sydney, Australia. It was designed and built by Rolf Ockert Design for a client that wanted a place where every day would feel like a holiday. The site on which the house is situated is small and surrounded by neighboring buildings. However, it’s perched high over the Pacific Ocean and this allows it to offer stunning and panoramic views.

Even though the site is tiny and has buildings around it, the house feels like there’s nothing there but the sky and the ocean. It’s a feeling given by the design and the openness of the structure. When designing the house, the architects were restricted by the conditions on the site.

A Narrow Home With A Small Courtyard

When there’s very little space to work with on a site, most people wouldn’t even think of adding a courtyard to the design of their home. It’s why we were so surprised by this tiny residence from Melbourne, Australia.

The house is very small but, even so, the site still had room for an internal courtyard. The project was designed by Edwards Moore and the residence is constructed in such a way that the courtyard connects all the rooms in the house.

Named Dolls House, the structure is the smallest house on the street. It used to be a workers cottage until it got transformed and converted into this tiny and cozy private home.
