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.
Voorsanger Architects created a stunning home in Aspen Colorado. The Wildcat Ridge residence – as it was named – sits atop a 9200 feet elevation overlooking beautiful natural surroundings. The fragile nature of the site challenged the architects to design a home that would follow the contours of the land but display a stunning modern architecture.
Beautiful chairs like the Corona chair by Poul Volther and the unique Flag Halyard Chair designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1950 found their place in this home ever since Sara bought the Corona chair when she finished high school. In the living room hanging from the ceiling over the creative corner and behind the stainless steel and flag line chair is the Verner Panton Globe pendant that brightens up the space through its design and light.
The kitchen has a wonderful and ample red hanging shelf unit that separates the cooking area from the dining area. the cooking surfaces are arranged so the hose can converse with the guests while the food preparation in happening. A red couch adds a continuation of the accent color as well as a demarcation between the living and dining areas.
Schnieders is but not satisfied with the small size of the bathroom and the style of the kitchen. He also does not like the ceiling fans. But we feel that the fans are just alright in terms of the traditional accessories the house has been adorned with. Well he is a man who believes that even if a space is very temporary it should feel like our own otherwise we will be miserable. May be that is why he is so cynical about certain aspects of the house. We wish him and his family that their house under renovation would truly be a dream home.
Vibrant colors for your house you say; here’s this incredible residence in Ankara Turkey — the Going from red to orange and violet at night and having almost all shades and tints for the interiors this three-storey wonder is surrounded by urban buildings and the Middle East Technical University forest hence offering a cool sight all around. Add to all these that it’s been built on a steep surface with a floor plan of over 1050 square meters and you’ll agree with us saying that this is an amazing dream house.
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.
