Miller’s House by asdfg Architekten

Description by asdfg Architekten The history and special situation of the building was a big challenge, but we also saw a high potential in it to become a very unique single family house with a garden in the center of one of the most popular neighbourhoods of Berlin. As it is the oldest building of Prenzlauer Berg, the authorities requested us to reconstruct the facade of the heritage-protected building precisely as depicted on an historical drawing from the year 1844. We wanted to show the history of the old building without pretending that the facade would be 170 years old. Our concept was to interpret the lines in the historical drawing as differences in the height of a stucco facade using ancient techniques and materials. In an architectural drawing a line could be interpreted in different ways; as a gap in the wall, a section line or a difference in [ Continue reading ]

Ceramic Tiles

This is one of my favorite options for a contemporary approach. Ceramic may be an expensive material, but if you know where and how to look for it, you can find it a great price. I recommend you an outlet for this. They look great in every colors, but especially white, black or grey. They are amazing for offices, for living rooms, for the balcony and also for the bedroom. Keep in mind that they will keep the house a little bit cold, but that wouldn’t be a problem in the hot days of summer.

Dark Rooms

 Christopher Leach once told us, ‘be brave and decorate with dark color. It doesn’t mean you will end up with a room of Stygian gloom. If a space doesn’t receive much natural light, there is no jolly yellow or bright white on earth that will remedy it.’ Black was always my go-to color, my favorite one, so that’s why I thought about talking about dark rooms, black walls. Cause why not? If you are stylish enough, and you know how to make it work, your room won’t look grungy,but intimate,romantic.    

Nirvana Bathtub Design

This more-than-modern bathtub design was inspired by the intention of reproducing the nightsky into the small “universe” of your restroom. This very model is one of the winners of The Red Dot Award 2009. The following design was conceived by Bathroom Tomorrow, a Thai company from Bangkok. The “Nirvana” Bathtub succeeds in merging the state-of-the-art technology only to offer you a memorable bathing experience. Because of its bizzare shape, this bathtub only uses 40 % of the water that an average bathtub does, aspect that makes it sustainable too. LEDs all over the surface establish the wonderful effect from the pictures. An i-Touch system controlls the lights that the company promotes. What else could be said about this allurign bathtub ?! Care to comment?  

Ceramic House

The ceramic House was the idea of the Spanish architect Hector Ruiz – Velazquez and it is not an actual house, but rather a small apartment in Madrid. These apartment doesn’t have any entry from room to room, no doors. The idea of the architect being to ease the communication between family members in different rooms. Although I used the term ‘family’, the architect Hector says that this apartment is dedicated to those who live all by themselves, because the apartment itself it’s not big enough. The interior is all white because almost everything is made with cerami, and I suspect that the apartment temperature is lower (because of ceramic wall and floor).

Feminine apartments

Women are defined as sensitive, fragile human beings and these qualities can be reflected in the way they design their own home. I can imagine that the perfect space for a woman is a clear and spacious one with white, light pink or purple furniture, carpets and wallpapers. As home decorations they would probably love to fill the house with flowers, mirrors, gold or silver vases and photo frames. Another innovation can be a romantic corner where she would like to stay with her husband/boyfriend, like a fireplace in front of which she can place a fur carpet. The Victorian style is also something that women choose when it comes to decorate their home. It is this possible because the Victorian style it is also represented by a woman? (The Queen Victoria)
