I’d gladly take any one of these homes (34 Photos) : Modern Concrete House (15 photos) When you first think about the words concrete house, you might imagine a cold, sterile environment, perhaps something similar to a prison. If that's the case, this one story house designed by architecture studio A-cero will likely change your mind. Located on the outskirts of Madrid, Concrete House II features a façade that boasts a spectacular view of the whole house.

The first impression that visitors usually get is that the building seems to be hidden between concrete walls and ramps that extend up to the roof. Upon further inspection, they find a vegetation area that climbs towards the sky! The back of the house opens up towards the garden where the lounge, dining room, library, study, and bedrooms are found. Outside, the plot includes an elegant garden and small lake, while the roof features solar panels and a renewable energy system. A-cero. Bates Masi Architects - Award Winning Modern Architect, Hamptons, New York. Lot size: 1.6 acres Building size: 3,200 sq. ft.

Location: Montauk, NY Program: Single Family Residence Photographer: Bates Masi Architects Landscape Architect: Coen + Partners The house occupies a hill in Montauk with a distant view of the ocean, a site that the owners, a couple with two young boys, spent years to find.

The living area, a double height space with kitchen, dining and living area, has thirty-six feet wide glass doors that pocket. Wooden kitchens. We have an open plan living room and kitchen area with a wooden floor. It would have been to much (wood on wood) to have a wooden kitchen as well so we opted for a white kitchen. But I do love a kitchen made from wood. The kitchen below is actually made from a single elm tree.

It is gorgeous don’t you think? Today’s post is the last one in this week’s series about kitchens. (image source: 1. 19th Century London Water Tower Transformed into a Unique, High-Flying Home. The eight-story water tower was designed for the nearby Lambeth Workhouse and Hospital, and it was the tallest water tower in all of London when it was completed in 1867.

But the tower fell into disuse in the 20th century, and it became home to thousands of pigeons. “There were 2,000 dead pigeons in there, and poo that went up to the top of your wellies!” Osborne told the Penarth Times. Converting a structure that was built to hold water into one that’s more conducive to human activities is no small task. Workers had to remove a great deal of brick to create enough room for living spaces, and Osborne and Voce also added a modern kitchen, a living room and a home gym. Incredibly, the entire build-out only took eight months. Via the New York Times, Penarth Times and TreeHugger Photos © 1st option. Extreme Modern Hillside Home with an Amazing View. True to its name, the Open House by Xten Architecture is incredibly spacious inside and has innumerable amazing views out onto the surrounding landscape from its luxurious Hollywood Hills vantage point.

Sharp angular lines define the house in space from the outside but also direct viewers to look back out once within the structure, past the pool and deck and to the cityscape below. Comfortable interior spaces give way to narrow circulation areas that, in turn, open back up to the broader outside world. Deeper within the house, spaces become increasingly private – tucked between the building itself, retaining walls and the hillside behind. This is yet another example of taking a strangely sloped site and making the best of each of its site elements – the hillside behind the house, the vista out the front and everything in between. Sky Garden House. I think one of the reasons that many are skeptical about environmental design is because they think its terribly complex and costly. It does take a bit more effort on the front end, but it's definitely not rocket science.

This architecture by Guz Architects is a wonderfully developed minimalistic design with a curvilinear flare that really brings out the organic coverings. I'm most impressed with how design facilitates the needs of the plants and shrubs located throughout the house. See more at Guz Architects. Pretty Beach House. The Armada House.

Old Barn Turned Into A Modern House With Unusual Architecture. Aug 08 Dutch design studio Kwint Architecten has recently completed a barn in the countryside, a residence integrated into an existing vernacular structure south of the city of Eelde, the Netherlands.

An old barn was changed into a cool residence with a layer of horizontal wooden blinds, allowing air to ventilate into a transitory covered space before entering the interior. Concealed and integrated into the cladding, large barn-style doors may remain closed for privacy or swung open for additional daylight. The inside is minimalist combined with traditional; there are two levels. The living room is more traditional in furniture and design, while the kitchen and bathroom is minimalist. This is a cool sample of an unusual architectural solution, that is also functional and brings much fresh air and light in. via Similar Posts: Modern House Designs.
