House TTN is Ideal for an Urban Extended Family

The TTN House on view here has been designed to accommodate three urban families into one single environment which were previously living as nuclear families. Miyahara Architect Office had a tricky task up its sleeve as it had to come up with a design that accommodates the need of modern nuclear families which are going to reside in a joint family set-up.

Hence, they had to, in a way, separate three families in a collective space and Miyahara resorted to take a semi-independent sharing approach.  This implied that each family will have an independent kitchen, bath and toilet but the homes will be adjoined through the ground floor with an extremely independent main room.

Yellow Treehouse Restaurant from New Zealand

I do not want to dig deep into the details of how the permission for a tree restaurant was granted in Auckland, New Zealand at all. The purpose here (as always) will remain to admire the architectural brilliance and in this case, Pacific Environments Architects take the laurels.  It is like reviving the childhood dreams and here is an opportunity to live the dream by dining in the tree house. The access to this amazing tree restaurant is through a 60m tree-top walkway which in itself is an adventure. The tree restaurant appears like a brimming beacon of light and comparisons can also be drawn with a sea shell.

This is truly unique restaurant. We’ve seen underwater restaurants, so it’s only natural to see tree house restaurants too.  It’s a very original idea, hard to make it become reality but the design is just amazing. The atmosphere must be really special. It’s an experience that those who were in there will never forget.

The Division Knoll Residence is for Real

There are certain structures on this planet that the sheer admiration for them renders a feeling of disbelief- they do not exist. The Division Knoll Residence by Sagan Piechota architecture located in Big Sur, California is one such structure.

The residence uses an entirely different choice of materials for instance, glass for the walls, stone for the flooring, copper for roof and concrete merely for support. It is because of the simplicity of these materials that this Division Knoll residence appears almost invisible. There are certain angles which make you feel that the house does not exist at all.

T Residence from Japan overlooks the Beautiful Pacific

The T Residence finished by Kidosaki Architects Studio chooses a lot of organic material to take form after a renovation attempt that was aimed at reviving the structure after 20 years. The T Residence is the ideal location to enjoy a captivating view of the Pacific and its owner did not reside here permanently before the renovation.

It was only after Kidosaki worked its magic that the owner decided to shift permanently to Japan and enjoy staying in this residence. The residence has been purposely given a dynamic feeling of floating by pushing the house out towards the ocean, right atop the sloping site. The architects have managed to incorporate elements like serenity and calmness in the overall design.
