Inserting a whole new living space in the existing one can be a great idea and this BUAMA house owned by a young couple from Istanbul is a good example. This renovation project has been completed by GAD, a famous name with offices in New York and Bodrum other than Istanbul. Interestingly, the new project maintains the existing heights yet offers a more organic alternative. What is amazing to note is that there is no clear distinction between the floor and the walls or between the walls and ceiling. The organic surface disperses light so limitlessly which gives the renovated facility a very radiant outlook. The furniture has been precisely chosen to combine many different styles.

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.
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.
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.
