Atelier LAVIT has designed an eco-hotel comprising a series of structures that float on a lake in south-eastern france. located on a marine reserve near the city of avignon, the hotel is made of up ten suites — each clad with wooden screens that ensure both privacy and shelter for guests. in order to protect the unspoiled region from obtrusive structures, the architects sought to camouflage the buoyant buildings with the existing landscape. all images by marco lavit nicora appearing as primitive structures within the reeds, the hotel rooms float on the water like rafts and offer sweeping views across the lake. guests access the suites via wooden walkways that extend from the banks of the lake. rooms contain an area for sleeping, a lounge, and a hot tub. each unit is wrapped with an external deck, which is protected by a tall timber screen that defines the external appearance of the structure — either circular or square. the ten structures float on a lake in south-eastern france.

Minimalist Multi-Family Flat With Plenty of Light + Space: Design Milk

I mean, it’s super dreamy with tons of sunlight and flexible spaces for different functions. Back to reality… It was designed for an extended family of multiple generations from South East Asia that travel to London regularly for work and play. At any given time, there could be two entire families staying there for two weeks or just two adults there for two days, so it was important that the home accommodate as many functions as possible but be simple in design. The Kensington Street flat was divided up with an awkward layout and dark bedrooms and bathrooms. VW+BS came in to bring the home back to life and they did with warm woods, clean white walls, and clever ideas. The open, double height living area offers various functions, like being the living room, dining room, and kitchen. a8W3WZ1_700b.jpg (600×10571) Secret Doors, Hidden Doors, Safe Room, Panic Room, Hidden Safe & Bomb Shelters.
