What is a Tulou?

tulou or “earthen building”, is a traditional communal residence found in Fujian Province South China, usually of a circular configuration surrounding a central shrine. Some were constructed out of cut granite or had substantial walls of fired brick

The Fujian Tulou is probably the last one, built in 2008 and it looks like this:

The Fujian Tulou is including Chuxi tulou group, Tianluokeng tulou cluster, Hekeng tulou cluster, Gaobei tulou cluster, Dadi tulou cluster, Hongkeng tulou cluster, Yangxian lou, Huiyuan lou, Zhengfu lou and Hegui lou, and it is considered  as “exceptional examples of a building tradition and function exemplifying a particular type of communal living and defensive organization in a harmonious relationship with their environment”.

 

really like the concept of these buildings, and I heard that it were also made to deposit things, which means they are very spacious. The relationship between people living in that area should be very strong.

Two Greek architects have created a striking house design called ‘Casa Brutale’ that perfectly complements the powerful concrete style known as brutalism – they’ve embedded their luxury brutalist home into a cliff, creating a severe yet inviting structure with an at once beautiful and terrifying view.
Architects Laertis Antonios Ando Vassiliou and Pantelis Kampouropoulos, who formed OPA Works together, envisioned the building concept as a “poetic homage to pure Brutalism.” The roof-top pool (at ground level) and underground walls help insulate the building and keep it cool.
There’s clearly something about cliffs that excites architects’ imaginations, because the architects at Modscape Concept also created an amazing cliff-face house concept.

This is amazing, isn`t it?

Geometry, art and talent are the base of this beautiful concept-geometry-inspired hammock sofa. I promised you in my previous post that I would talk to you about this type of hammocks.

These hammocks are designed by Richie Duncan and they were supposed to be suspended above the ground. They are outdoor ‘accessories’, but I think that they would look even better indoor, because they would give your house that arty vibe and I think it speaks a lot about the owner.

If you liked this post and this kind of hammock, please let me know in the comment section where would you place the geometry-inspired Hammock Sofa? I will pronounce myself for indoor and above a river.

When you have an organized and well-designed house, you really want your garden to be the same. So, what should you do?

I am here to help you with some ideas for decorating your garden.

 

  1. Plant a lot of threes and plants (in a few years you will live in your own forest);
  2. Surround your garden with vintage lamps;
  3. An handmade turret which looks like a Indian tent;
  4. Decorate your garden entrance with colorful flowers;
  5. Place a table with some chairs in the most peaceful corner and take dinner there;
  6. Build a birdbath;
  7. Create an outdoor walkway for your cat;
  8. Create a hammock designed only for you (I will show you some interesting ideas of hammocks designs in the next post)

Architects that bring nature to your house

Wondering which design is the greatest for your new home? Pure nature! No, I am not wrong! The nature is the best home ‘accessory’.

Frank Lloyd Wright was one of the most influential architects of the first half of the 20th century. Lloyd Wright died 50 years ago, but his designs are still alive. ‘Fallingwater’ is just one of his amazing houses.

The team at Swat Miers Architects transformed a vision into reality, designing the three tea houses as perfect observation spots.

We can notice that the principal idea of this houses is the big windows, and the raw material used for almost every object in house.

Besides these two major innovations of the architects, there are many houses that bring nature inside them.
