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 ]

The Staircase

Come and see how people have turned this architectural lynch pin in to a thing of beauty which, that can set the decorative tone of an entire house. Come and scale the dizzying heights of staircase design. To me, it seems a beautiful,inspirational,creative idea, one that I would adopt if I had a house.  Jessica Doyle has a guide to staircase in which she give you lots and lots of ideas and she is the one who inspired me to write this article. 

House in Mexico by Bernardi + Peschard Arquitectura

The architectural design begins with a central volume that is bigger than the rest; it dialogues with, divides and denotes the uses of the surrounding spaces. It was built as fragments that become a series of independent pavilions, and turn the complex into a beach villa. It leaves behind the massive house constructions in the surrounding area. In a palapa made of natural parota wood, over 10 m high, you find the living/dining room, which makes the transition to the semiprivate and private spaces. This element has a first plane looking into the private beach on the Pacific coast. This area was designed with the idea of making it the common area, the heart of the house, and so it is close to the sea, and has an imposing height and size. Next to this you find the other spaces in rock blocks mixed with wood elements and a palm [ Continue reading ]

Small Spaces Inspiration

Sometimes, pictures say more than words. So, that’s why this post it is only about picture, about finding your inspiration just like I do, by looking at some ideas in picture. This post is about small places, about how to make it to appear bigger.

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.

Unit 315 or A Wonderful Loft

This apartment combines the modern and classic elements in a suitable way. I consider that this offers a wonderful view both to an architect and an unintitiated. The designers used very clever the entire space and succeeded in arranging the entire space for everything. Unit 315 is a residential project created by the Canadian builder Dennis Dorion and his wife Dorion Scott and the project is located in a former Wrigley’s chewing gum factory in Toronto, Canada, which was converted into apartments during the late 1990s. The interior of the apartment is contemporary and rich in details, integrating artistic elements with industrial ones. The predominant color on the walls and ceiling is white and a dark reflective floor offers contrast along with the dark tones of the side walls that are painted black. The overall neutral tones create a very elegant ambiance with long white curtains adding privacy and large [ Continue reading ]
