Chantrell Meunier Exterior, 2017-09-05 02:25:08. This house from Brissago, Switzerland looks incredibly simple, like a concrete monolith with cut out windows from place to place. It looks as if it’s been on that slope all along and only recently carved into a home. It’s a great look managed by Wespi de Meuron Romeo Architects. Because it sits on a steep slope, the houses has the entrance on the top floor and the parking lot up on the roof level. Its raw concrete facades are minimalist and intriguing and the interior matches this look.
Celesse Legrand Exterior, 2017-06-02 14:44:47. This forest house is located in Mar Azul, Argentina. It was built by BAK Architects on a site full of challenges. The owners wanted it to be away from the sea and the populated areas so it can serve as a private, intimate and remote refuge. At the same time, they wanted to be in contact with nature and the landscape. To these requests the architects responded with a single level design for a structure that has a concrete shell and vast openings. It sits on a flat section of the site and it offers uninterrupted views of the surrounding landscape.
Fawnia Leroux Exterior, 2017-05-05 09:08:29. For a house that tries to close itself off as much as possible in respect to the street and the neighbors, this family home has surprisingly open spaces and facades. This unusual combination was achieved by moarqs + OTTOLENGHI architects by combining two contrasting materials: concrete and glass. The design strategy was to have a more open ground floor while the first floor is closed and private. Both floors have full-height glass walls but the difference is that there’s a concrete shell which wraps around the upper floor, framing the spaces and blocking the views but at the same time allowing them to be fully open to the courtyard.

The innovation is the choice of materials which is quite unusual: shipping containers. This is not the first time we see shipping containers being repurposed into something else. You should check projects like the Containhotel or Dock 45 to see how inspiring the idea can be. With so many unique and interesting projects to be inspired by, nothing seems unusual anymore, not even a pool made out of a shipping container.
Chantay Clement Bathroom, 2017-06-07 14:44:00. Who doesn’t need more space in their bathroom? Shower curtains are a great option for bathrooms that don’t want to install glass enclosure doors or don’t have enough room for the swing of the door. Many shower curtains install on low profile tracks on the ceiling to enable the curtain to stay open while making your bathroom feel larger. Also consider adding a valance or hang a decorative fabric for a formal approach to your bathtub/shower area. These curtains can also have a liner placed behind the fabric curtain to ensure water doesn’t damage the valance and decorative curtain.
Huguetta Pasquier Exterior, 2017-05-19 08:56:35. This is the Jellyfish House, a residence built by Wiel Arets Architects in Málaga, Spain. It’s an interesting house for several reasons. First of all, it’s an inspiration for other projects because of the way in which it deals with its neighbors that are blocking its view to the sea. The house was designed on four levels with a rooftop pool that cantilevers 9 meters to the South-West. It was designed this way so that views of the sea can be admired while relaxing on the terrace or swimming in the pool which, by the way, has a glass bottom.
Lealia Lesage Exterior, 2017-05-13 08:56:50. The idea of living in a fortress can sound pretty awesome. You’d definitely have plenty of privacy and security but how would such a structure have to look like so it could more or less fit in a usual urban or rural setting? An answer to this question can be the house designed by Anako Architecture along the Rhone in Switzerland. The project uses concrete as a primary material and the house looks a lot like what would be a modern and stylized version of a fortress. It has an unusual form which mimics the silhouettes of the Alps visible in the distance. Walls of raw concrete define the facade and set a border between the interior spaces and the surroundings.
Fleur Prevost Exterior, 2017-06-01 15:03:06. When dealing with a lot of concrete, it’s often nice to balance out its coldness with some warm wood elements. It’s what studio Clauwers & Simon did when designing this residence in Belgium. The building is organized around a courtyard and its design is a tribute to Belgian architect Juliann Lampens who is known for the extensive use of concrete both inside and out the buildings designed back in the 1960s. The impact of the concrete in this particular case is softened by the timber and the views of the large garden.
