House in Inglewood by Alair Homes Chilliwack

  Description by Alair Homes Chilliwack This was a challenging project for very discerning clients. The home was originally owned by the client’s father, and she inherited it when he passed. Care was taken to preserve the history in the home while upgrading it for the current owners. This home exceeds current energy codes, and all mechanical and electrical systems have been completely replaced. The clients remained in the home for the duration of the reno, so it was completed in two phases. Phase 1 involved gutting the basement, removing all asbestos containing materials (flooring, plaster), and replacing all mechanical and electrical systems, new spray foam insulation, and complete new finishing. The clients lived upstairs while we did the basement, and in the basement while we did the main floor. They left on a vacation while we did the asbestos work. Phase 2 involved a rock retaining wall on the [ Continue reading ]

Gothic Cottage by Daniel Contelmo Architects

  Description by Daniel Contelmo Architects When the homeowners approached Daniel Contelmo Architects to design their new home, they knew they wanted something different. Daniel Contelmo sketched several options for them, but quickly realized that a modern style was not suitable. Inspired by the gatehouses of local estates, many of which were stone cottages, Daniel Contelmo settled on a gothic cottage design, seamlessly blending the two styles. The result was unique, an organic and whimsical home that perfectly reflected the clients’ wishes. The exterior is dominated by steeply pitched roofs and clover windows reminiscent of the carpenter gothic style, which was predominant in the area. The metal roof reflects the sky, lending an airy feeling that contrasts the stone at the base of the main entrance. Graceful arches soften the roofline and, to the right, a swooping fence lengthens the front elevation. The surrounding landscape influenced much of the design; [ Continue reading ]

Loft F5.04 by SMLXL Studio

Description by Boysplaynice Photography & Concept After a long search of an apartment offering both interesting and atypical elements, and located in central Prague, this proved to be an ideal choice. Time management was perfect, and the arrangement with the developer was that the apartment would be made over as shell and core, meeting only the most basic approval standards. The owners also addressed our studio ahead of time, providing us with enough time to think about the project in detail. As soon as the owners were handed the keys to the apartment, we were ready to begin with the changes. Upon our first visit of the apartment, we faced an unpleasant surprise – the windows. The industrial design was replaced with plastic windows, although the developer had committed to keeping the original design. Since this was a corner apartment and windows played a key role in the interior, the [ Continue reading ]

Hotels To Stay

Every time I travel somewhere I like to be near the nature, and when I choose a hotel to stay I like it to be as simple as possible, where nature inspires everything, fresh. Hotels are meant to make you feel like home, but they have a lot to do to make you feel cozy and like home. Don’t you ever think that it is easy to decorate/design a hotel.  A personal restaurant it is also a great idea, and so it is the pool. Here are some ideas that I loved about hotel:  

Big Family House

When you have a large family you need ,fore sure, more space, but not everyone seems to need a huge house , so many of us swich the big house to an economic version .   What is this version about? 1.In short , children’s rooms can be converted into a single room where 2 children can live , and will be shared equally , but decorated differently in each part . 2.The kitchen should not host the table where they eat, it can be placed in the livingroom , which is usually the largest room of a house ,where the family will gather at the end of the day .   If you know how to arrange, the house will not look at all crowded and it will be small and with a great taste .   !! Greater attention should focus on the courtyard , which will be [ Continue reading ]

Yellow Rooms

Yellow is the warmest and expandable color. It is also the symbol of youth, the color of gods. This color stimulates the central nervous system, increases the digestive capacity, and it makes us feel in shape. So, painting your walls in yellow or buying yellow room décor it is a good choice for you. Not only that it looks incredible, but it will also make you feel physically and mentally. If you want to hear the symbolism of other colors and you need some help deciding which one is better for your room, please let me know and I will make a post about the color you need.

The lot is located in a gated neighborhood near the central area of the city of Córdoba and it showed great contrasts … .an irregular exposing corner lot that challenged us to preserve home life … .an ancient dense forest of native trees occupied half of the land, opposite to a plain stripped of vegetation. The challenge and exploration of the work aimed to amalgamate the light of the land with the programmatic needs of housing … the forest, its shadow, its intimacy … and the plain, its light, its expansion as a vacuum to overturn in architecture. A serene family life of four members with an active social life. Thus, the skin is the [ Continue reading ]
