Ruffey Lake House by Inbetween Architecture

Description by Inbetween Architecture To make the most of its privileged position, overlooking Ruffey Lake Park, this 1970s double brick home is undergoing a complete transformation. To take better advantage of its stunning outlook and north-facing frontage, the previously dark and compartmentalised interior is being opened up to embrace natural light, stunning views and a greater connection between kitchen, dining and living spaces, the heart of the modern home. Quieter, more private spaces, such as the music room and TV den with sunken pit will nestle snugly into the sheltered, more segmented west side of the existing floor plate. Clever reworking of existing stepped floor levels and the strategic placement of skylights bring the airy beauty of natural light through the house and down to the ground floor, and when combined with dramatically raked eaves to the north, the result is unique focal points which will inject variation and personality [ Continue reading ]

Miller’s House by asdfg Architekten

Description by asdfg Architekten The history and special situation of the building was a big challenge, but we also saw a high potential in it to become a very unique single family house with a garden in the center of one of the most popular neighbourhoods of Berlin. As it is the oldest building of Prenzlauer Berg, the authorities requested us to reconstruct the facade of the heritage-protected building precisely as depicted on an historical drawing from the year 1844. We wanted to show the history of the old building without pretending that the facade would be 170 years old. Our concept was to interpret the lines in the historical drawing as differences in the height of a stucco facade using ancient techniques and materials. In an architectural drawing a line could be interpreted in different ways; as a gap in the wall, a section line or a difference in [ Continue reading ]

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?

A boring deck or a cool outdoor kitchen?

Imgur user RogerBennett55 was getting no use out of the patio in his backyard, so a change had to be made. He decided that eating and drinking were a few of his favorite pastimes and so that became the genesis for building an outdoor kitchen of his own. Brilliant. After watching a few online tutorials and doing some research on how to design his own kitchen he began to build his dream. And only several weeks of work later he did just that. In his own words, this is exactly how he pulled it off… Building out the U frame. Bar and footrest attached. Starting the Durock installation  Supports for grill and framing for doors. And more Durock Drop in ice chest cutout and door framed Here’s to hoping the grill fits…fingers crossed. Durock nearly done…just need to cutout spot for the Big Green Egg grill in corner.  Grill fits!! Nearly–a little [ 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.

DIY Home Décor- RECYCLE

We know how important is recycling these days, and how good it is this for our health and economic status. I personally recycle things by doing something new from it, I don’t usually recycle in the ‘traditional way’. So, I want to show you some great and simple home décor ideas made from recycled things. 1. Flower bulb For this project you will need: -1 bulb; -Fake or natural flowers; -Twine.   Take the interior of the bulb out, wrap some twine around the end of the bulb and fill it with water. Then, put your flowers in it and you will have an original flowerpot. As simple as this! Personally, I like it in my kitchen because it gives a natural appearance to it. 2. Container holder You know those annoying meat or fish containers which we throw out immediately, because we cut our fingers in it or they [ Continue reading ]
