Wooden siding in a chevron pattern can be found on the first floor of this home but check out that tree bark that adds unforgettable flair to the second story! Metal planters on the ground mirror the dark tones of the bark. Ready to get traditional? Stucco can be found on the exteriors of some of today’s most charming homes like this lovely residence from Anne Decker Architects:
Designed by architect Flavio Castro Planalto Paulista is a residence in São Paulo Brazil whose structure is arranged across two perpendicular volumes where the top is projecting over the bottom. Bold and brash the home strikes an elegant and handsome profile.
The ground floor houses a large study along with a family room and a bedroom which open up towards the elegant courtyard. An open plan living area with a kitchen and dining space occupies the first floor while the top level contains the master suite and an additional bedroom.
Brought to life by Kim Alexander Builders the breezy home is spread across and comes with a gorgeous living area kitchen dining space and a cozy bedroom. The cantilevered structure of the home offers wonderful views of the landscape that surround the lot even as the large porches extend the living area outdoors. Plenty of greenery around the dwelling gives it the appeal of a relaxing holiday home and large glass windows and doors aid in blurring the line between the interior and the garden outside.
Do not be fooled by the name though as this secondary dwelling can be used by other members of the family as well and is often turned into a guest house or a home studio/office space. Located in the beautiful suburb of The Gap this lovely one-bedroom granny flat was designed by Baahouse + Baastudio.
Spread across the various levels of the house interact with one another to create a flowing interior that is both aesthetic and ergonomic. A large living area makes up the heart of the home and is connected with the balcony outside through sliding glass doors.
Fly Out House in Toyohashi Japan by architect Tatsuyuki Takag is a cleverly constructed timber-framed home raised on a cantilevered concrete slab. Located in a Santiago suburb at the foothills of the Andes 10 X 10 is a remarkable family home designed by Max Núñez Arquitectos. A severe concrete facade conceals a calm well-proportioned and judicious interior.
