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

I always compared brick houses with grandparents houses and I don’t even know you. I didn’t have the luck to have grandparents living in the countryside so I always wanted to go somewhere where I can feel at grandparents. Brick houses are designed from raw materials and they look amazing! They give you the feeling that the architect worked so much placing every singe piece of … there. They are common for London architecture, they look vintage. I also think that a brick interior would look stunning, but I will do some research and I will talk soon about it and I will show you picture for ideas. Have you ever seen a brick house? How did you like it?

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).

Casa Xixim by Specht Harpman Architects

Description by Specht Harpman Architects This residence, on a narrow lot fronting a protected bay in Tulum, Mexico, was designed to be fully self-sufficient, and to immerse the occupants in the range of environments that the site offers.

Four bedrooms, above and adjacent to this space, can also be fully opened to the exterior. The transparency of the house allows prevailing winds to flow through and provide cooling while maximizing views of the site. The house is powered by a photovoltaic canopy that shades a large rooftop terrace. This terrace also collects rainwater that is filtered and stored for use. Other roof areas are planted with native species that provide insulation and screening. All waste is processed through a digester and artificial wetlands system. The [ Continue reading ]

How to choose the perfect chandelier for your house

Designer lighting is back in vogue!? YES, IT REALLY IS! Contemporary and traditional designs of chandeliers are available in the market. I recommend buying a chandelier only for houses or very big apartments, because having a chandelier in your small room can agglomerate the space. A chandelier is one way to change the lighting in the bedroom while also adding some vintage vibes to the decor. While chandeliers are most commonly used in dining rooms or foyers, many people are also choosing to add them in other rooms of the house. Finding the perfect chandelier for a bedroom can be a little bit tricky. Before shopping for a chandelier, the room will need to be measured, and the appropriate size of chandelier will need to be determined. After you’ve measured your room and chose the size of the chandelier you can think about the design of it. There are a [ Continue reading ]

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.
