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 ]

Breathtaking Bathroom Design in Sofia,Bulgaria

The twin Bulgarian designers,Desislava Ivanova and Branimira Ivanova, together with Gemelli Design, a studio located in Bulgaria’s capital, Sofia, have not recanted in creating another startling design. All their former performances proved to be stunning, and the following designs respect the algorithm. The first configuration, “An Oasis in a Sandstorm” bathroom combines the yellow and purple and merges the lavatory with the bedroom. This daring prototype frames a statuary modern bedroom divided by an evenly fabulous restroom by a glass surface and a fireplace.For a smooth shift between the two rooms, the inventors prefered to utilize glass instead of an opaque material. Furthermore, they have also chosen to carry an identical geometric range of shapes in both arrangements. The contrasting pigments of each space also concur to assure the mild progression between the spaces. The second design,” H20 in Geometry” aims to call attention to the vital bond between the [ 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.

A New Concept – UFO Floating House

With the sea level rising as a result of global warming, the low-lying, peolple found an alteternative for the conventional houses on the ground. The floating house is not a new concept, but some architects took it at a new level – The UFO Floating House. While you can always head for the hills to wait out the apocalypse, a more stylish option could be a fully sustainable floating home from Italian mini yacht-maker Jet Capsule. The company has drawn up a concept for a saucer-shaped UFO, or Unidentified Floating Object, which offers a completely off-grid existence floating on the ocean. The  company’s co-founders, Pierpaolo Lazzarini and Luca Solla, the UFO is intended for “living in a floating house and moving slowly around the world.” “Slowly” in this case means a leisurely maximum speed of 3.5 knots (6.5 km/h, 4 mph), using a waterjet-propelled Torqeedo Deep Blue 1800 electric motor.

Brick houses-interior

I promised you in a previous post that I will talk a little about the interior of a brick house. As you know, at the exterior all is made from brick. Surprise: the walls at the interior are just the same! But they look spectacular though. I always wanted to break a wall and leave the bricks out. If you don’t want your all to be made from true brick, you can find someone who can paint it for you. I assure you it will look exactly the same, even better. When you have a brick wall, or more, you can also place a fireplace and you will feel as you are in the mountains,
