Contemporary countryside house with two pools and a luxurious interior

Located on a slope close to the hills of the Czech Republic, this countryside house is surrounded by green vegetation on all sides. The beautiful landscape is overwhelming and this becomes noticeable especially because the house wasn’t designed to blend in and to become part of the landscape. The house stands out with its white facade but this doesn’t make it any less charming.

The contemporary countryside house was designed by Orak architecture and the team managed to offer it the charm old and rustic houses usually have by burying it in the green environment. The house has three levels. A large gate situated on the ground floor directs the visitors towards the entrance. The interior is luxurious and modern. Besides the usual facilities, inside you can also find a spa and a snooker table designed to relax you and to get you in the mood for admiring the magnificent beauty surrounding you.

Stability and innovation represented in an unusual manner in Montreal

When you envision a structure designed to represent stability you don’t picture something suspended or asymmetrical which is why this residential complex is so unusual. Dubbed Habitat 67, the complex is located on the Saint Lawrence River in Montreal. Initially, it served as pavilion housing for the Expo 67 and it was built in 1967.

Although it’s an old structure, the complex still manages to impress and even to compete with contemporary designs. The concept of this structure was based on the cube which is a symbol of stability. However, it wasn’t used as some would have expected it.

The redesigned Adega Casa da Torre winery, now more charming than ever

I don’t know about you but I don’t know a lot about wineries. I imagine them as spaces surrounded by a lot of wood and with a rustic and charming feel. In fact, I pretty imagine a winery looking like this building. This is the Adega Casa da Torre winery. It’s located in Portugal and it recently went through a series of changes.

The changes were due to the legal regulations and were meant to make the place more hygienic and favorable for creating amazing wine. The winery went from shabby to upscale. Its design and structure had to be recreated and the designers had to rethink the whole thing. This is a case where new regulations and the need to follow new rules made the place better and created an enthusiasm for producing even better wine.

Life close to nature and in perfect harmony captured by Bjarko|Serra Architects

This is not the first house that we see and that’s located in the middle of nature but it’s definitely a house that has something special. Located close to the Washington Hood Canal, the house captures the spirit of the surrounding landscape and incorporates it in a simple design meant to make the most out of its location.

The idea behind this project was to create a house that allows its users to admire the views from every possible space. In order to do that, the architects decided to create a series of open spaces with huge windows and with glass walls that let nature get inside. The house is surrounded by trees so, even though it’s very open towards the exterior, it doesn’t lack privacy.

Modern Loft Interior Design Adoring the White Color Theme

White interiors are difficult to balance out because they can either seem sterile and lacking essence or they can be very fresh and delicate. This loft is very attractive and it has a lovely interior. The white color theme chosen for the design is simple but sophisticated at the same time.

The loft measures a total of 120 square meters so it’s spacious enough to seem airy regardless of the colors chosen. However, because white is a shade that makes any space seem bigger, the apartment has a very airy and open feel and it looks even more spacious. The loft is a part of a beautiful Italian house. The ground floor measures 81 square meters and the first floor only occupies 42 square meters. Given these numbers, the layout was chosen as it follows: the living and dining areas are on the ground level and the bedroom is on the top level.

House situated on the top of Queen Anne hill in Seattle, Washington

The Raye Street House is situated on top of the Queen Anne hill in Seattle, Washington. It was a project by Ryan Rhodes designs and it’s a modern residence characterized by an open and spacious interior, with huge windows and marvelous views. The views played a very important role in the whole project. The designer tried to incorporate them in the project as much as possible and to allow the inhabitants to admire and enjoy them from all areas of the house.

As far as the structure and layout of the house goes, this place can be broken into a series of combinations of rectangular box-like spaces. The house features clean and simple lines and this gives it a sophisticated and minimalist modern look. Also, the flexible interior is another characteristic of most modern spaces which are usually very versatile and functional. Further more, the color palette and the materials were chosen beautifully and they harmoniously interact in order to create a balanced and inviting space.

City View Residence House Located in Austin Texas

The Austin skyline is a pleasing view and it can get even better when admired through a beautiful city view residence house. Dick Clark Architecture has come up with such a house in Austin, Texas and responding to the clients demand, large windows have been used to make the city view more appealing.

There is a glass box living area which has sliding doors from the dining and pool room to invite guests to enjoy the panorama.   Also, there are visual connections between the living area, the dining room and the kitchen while a see through oak separates the stairs from the kitchen.

This residence is perfect from my point of view because it offers both all the benefits of living near or in the city, but it also allows you to stay a bit far from it, too, away from all the smog and pollution, noise and other shortcomings of city life. Plus the living area is huge and you can see the city from the living room windows. The outside pool reflects the lit house in a nice way and the modern design and furniture complete the scene.
