Surprising architectural developments are easy to spot – an unusually shaped home immediately catches your attention. This is the case with the Beam House designed by Uri Cohen Architects – a single family residence that seems to have been folded onto itself. Divided in three different parts – private semi private and public – the house bearing the name of its defining feature is a mixture of traditional inspiration and clean modern design.
Belgian studio Cocoon Architecten started from an existing farmhouse in Genk Belgium and constructed a modern oasis of comfort prepared to take on a new lifestyle. The Framework House now displays the existing building and an additional black volume facing the street.
Tatarko tells that the renovation of their house is an ongoing project and that inspiration from Houzz and its large collection of images was a key aspect in all of it. (And we are not surprised at all!)
Decorated with a fine collection of South African accessories the house is also dotted with many antique accessories and paintings from the owners’ collection. Further the awesome abode ensures a splendid view of the city of Istanbul. The sleek design of the will definitely leave you spellbound. The three level apartment of three levels in Sun Valley Idaho has a design just perfect for such a resort town.
All these for an unbelievable $21.8 million price tag which makes it (perhaps) the most expensive one-bedroom apartment in the world. So let’s say money aren’t a problem do you think such large single bedroom houses — 4434 sq ft (that’s roughly 412 square meters) — are a disadvantage or are they really good to live in? I reckon the building is monumental and highly appealing.
This glass concept home is created by Italian design firm Santambrogio. Carlo Santambrogio and designer Ennio Arosio have said that it was the desire of the client to build it completely out of glass. Located in Milan the house sits in the middle of a wood clearing.
This is truly an art lovers’ abode. In the South Park neighborhood of San Francisco dotted with art galleries and studios designer has done a makeover of a 1916 landmark warehouse and the efforts she has taken is worth every bit of it. See the vast wall space meant for displaying the exquisite pieces of art collected by her over the years. The best part is that the interior does not look crowded despite putting so much stuff together.
