What is a Tulou?

A 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”.   I 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.

See Beyond Your Limits

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-Inspired Hammock Sofa

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.

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.

A Simple House with Style

Christian Street House by James Russell Architect: “We are fortunate to live with a benign subtropical climate. Christian Street House in Clayfield, an inner north suburb of Brisbane, sits on the east side of a rolling hill, opening its face to the morning sun and bay breezes. It’s back is buried in the hill, protected from the harsh summer sun, storms and winter westerlies. High gables make a patio to street, a covered arrival and gathering place with barn doors to living behind. Cars participate without becoming a barrier between street and life within. There are many ways to move around this place. Journey from street can take you across patio, down outdoor stairs and around garden to meals, living and water. The boys can sneek in from street via a grungy service lane, they can come and go independently. Their rooms have a more public side to garden and [ Continue reading ]

Feminine apartments

Women are defined as sensitive, fragile human beings and these qualities can be reflected in the way they design their own home. I can imagine that the perfect space for a woman is a clear and spacious one with white, light pink or purple furniture, carpets and wallpapers. As home decorations they would probably love to fill the house with flowers, mirrors, gold or silver vases and photo frames. Another innovation can be a romantic corner where she would like to stay with her husband/boyfriend, like a fireplace in front of which she can place a fur carpet. The Victorian style is also something that women choose when it comes to decorate their home. It is this possible because the Victorian style it is also represented by a woman? (The Queen Victoria)

Lightbox House by Edwards Moore

The midget single-storey terrace house, dwarfed by the surroundings makes a splash in the encompassing borderlands. Aiming to exploit the modest space, the designer ofthe Lightbox successfully harnessed the scope. To sweeten the atmosphere, wide windows have been introduced in order to let the sunbeam accompany the ambience of the dwelling. The desire to enhance the quality of the living spaces within contributes to increasing the hospitality of the crib. The second floor should only be seen as a horizontal plane within the home, but as a vertical space, having considered the feeling of unity that its existence contributes to creating the impression of spaciousness. The see-through skin boasts the medium with natural light and the strategically installed openings provide an inner landscape. The fully-white painted walls empower the effect of wideness, inducing a flavor of tastefullness and roominess. The minimalistic features and wood inserts construct a breezy ambience and [ Continue reading ]

Modern Bathrooms

The bathroom is the place where we can relax and put the things in order in our mind. For me, the bathroom should be a clean and luminous space which will calm me whenever I open the door. I always imagined myself having a shower/bath surrounded by plants and bright colors. I don’t know why, but I always wanted my bathroom to be in black and white, if possible more white. I will show you some pictures with bathrooms that I like and I want to know if you like them too, or what kind of bathrooms would you like? My choice, as I said before, is a clean, white with plants bathroom + a big mirror!!
