The large roof overhangs the decks and also protects the large glass walls from winter weather and sun during the warmer months. Bedrooms and bathrooms are recessed into the back of this Washington State cabin (by Balance Architects) for coziness and privacy.
Currently under construction The Quest is a stunning midcentury-esque single-story dwelling designed by Ström Architects for two retired clients. Sited in Swanage UK the cantilevered home is a nod to contemporary modernism.
Don’t forget the appeal of mixed materials! Just as wood and stucco is a powerful combination with grey homes this blend is equally stunning when it comes to white stucco homes. This next abode is modern through and through from the clean-lined structure to the patio featuring slabs that were individually cast in place.
Bringing the past and the present together in a truly captivating fashion the house uses decor in diverse styles ranging from contemporary and Asian to midcentury vintage and even salvaged! It is this imaginative approach towards eclectic design that turns a seemingly mundane old structure into an inviting fun and exciting home that showcases the personality of its own and their wide art collection.
This two-story house by Architekten Innauer Matt named after the clients as “Haus für Julia und Björn” (House for Julia and Björn) has a steep roof and structural elements that include roof cantilevers. The roof’s pitch allowed for loft spaces to be added to the smaller bedrooms.
Even though the house adopts a distinct loft-style look modern elements and warm lighting help create a softer more inviting living space that is not a bit too edgy. With wonderful views of the city skyline from the top level and custom decor and accessories the smart conversion creates a clever balance between the past and the future!
