While steam rooms are filled with humid air and mist, saunas are clean and clear and thus a better options if you have greasy skin or if, for example, you want to be able to read a book while relaxing inside. The Ovola model is a very stylish option, featuring a rounded glass front and being finished completely in walnut and alder wood. Some health benefits are distinctively related to steam rooms. For example, using a steam room helps clear the throat, sinus and lung congestion and provides a relief for dry throats and nasal passages. On the other hand, dry saunas are often believed to make you sweat more so if that’s your goal you should go in that direction. However, in general, both saunas and steam rooms offer similar benefits.

This three-story family home in Pliezhausen, close to Stuttgart, is one of those cases. The house was designed by Steimle Architekten who gave it an unusual crystal-like shape. The unusually angled concrete facades offer an unexpected advantage: wonderful views of the surroundings. It’s a design that opens the house to the outdoors in an unusual but great way.

The design presents multiple advantages such as the fact that the structure can be relocated and transported to pretty much any location worldwide. In addition, a shipping container pool can be set up in minutes and it can also be enjoyed throughout the year thanks to the built-in heater. The heater can increate the temperature of the water to 30 degrees Celsius even in a -10 degrees Celsius temperature. A divider can be added if desired to transform a section of the pool into a hot tub. The installation of the pool is simple and can be done by local professionals or by the clients themselves. The ground needs to be prepped and Mudpools suggests two common and effective methods that can be used: a concrete slab or 8” of compacted gravel. Of course, lots of alternatives also exist.
Celesse Legrand Exterior, 2017-03-17 07:00:08. It was designed as a weekend getaway for visitors and it has a pond and a series of open spaces which communicate seamlessly with the outdoors. What we love the most about this guest house designed by Desai Chia Architecture is the scale of the windows and how they wrap around corners to capture the most amazing views. The whole idea behind this cozy although pretty big house in Valle de Bravo, Mexico, was to offer the owners the opportunity to enjoy living in the middle of nature, surrounded by trees and tranquility. The design direction chosen by Weber Arquitectos includes a lot of glazed walls and floor-to-ceiling windows while the house as a whole was designed around the existing trees, preserving the environment as much as possible.

Several such structures were built on the shore, with areas that extend outwards over the water. Also located in Norway, this summer house designed by Marianne Borge and Kjetil Saeterdal manages to somehow make its inhabitants feel like they’re outdoors when they’re actually inside. It’s all about the openness of the spaces and the fact that the house has huge panorama windows.

Benefits of this storage system are pragmatic – the toys are also given plenty of air space to dry out after a bath, and if they do leak water, it goes straight into the tub. Also, children are given easy access to the toys before and after bathtime, so they can choose their favorites and help put them away. And bonus: This method requires a finite number, so your bathroom won’t be overrun with entire flocks of rubber ducks!

It stands on a site that overlooks Loch Dunvegan and it has floor-to-ceiling windows in every room, including the bathroom. Every window captures a different part of the view and together they frame the whole panorama beautifully. The view is definitely important but so is having a comfortable place from where to enjoy it. Architect Olga Freiman designed this beautiful retreat in Moscow, Russia and made sure to have a cozy lounge area facing the panorama framed by the full-height glass wall.
Irene Arbore Exterior, 2017-04-01 08:56:16. The street facade is covered in fireproof timber and has a very understated and simple look. There’s a small private courtyard in front, sort of like a buffer zone between the internal spaces and the street. The wood on the facade is stained and has a rich finish which contrasts with the galvanized steel elements. The North facade, the one facing the river, has a totally different structure. This is an all glass facade which doesn’t exactly give much privacy but, at the same time, exposes the internal spaces to the expansive views. The glass also contributes to an overall look that’s robust on one hand but also open and airy on the other hand. Such contrasts are actually quite common with this project.
