A Garage Was Converted Into This Comfortable Living Space

The home features a material palette of black steel, recycled brick, concrete, and wood. An abundance of natural light from the interior courtyard that fills the living, dining and kitchen area. Next to the living room is the kitchen, that features a concrete countertop, wood cabinets and black hardware. Small holes have been used to create an artistic pattern on the light wood upper kitchen cabinets. Opposite the wall of kitchen cabinets, there’s a large kitchen island with concrete pendant lights hanging above and plenty of room to seat four people.

Thornton Model Home by Cecconi Simone. Interior designers Cecconi Simone have completed a model home in Orlando, Florida for home builder Ashton Woods. Project description This contemporary model home gently pushes the envelope of progressive design in Orlando, Florida’s residential marketplace. From the earliest stages of its design, the homebuilder, Ashton Woods Homes, engaged both architects and interior designers to maximize its livability and personalization.The floor plan is the basis of the three-storey model, which has been fully customized with only the window openings left in place.Everything flows from the floor plan. It extends sightlines, captures light and locates focal points and feature walls. It is unobtrusive and retractable or expandable based on homeowners’ needs.

Interior design: Cecconi Simone Inc. Winchester - Architecture in the Country - Padstow, Cornwall. We approached from the south along a track through fields and eventually the burnt out ruin of the original house began to emerge from behind the leafless field hedges. As we got closer a sense of desolation descended. The house, having suffered such a malicious arson attack, was totally devoid of any picturesque quality. Turning away from the building, the site displayed a wonderfully wild quality, with piles of disused slate and dramatic views beyond. It is set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, but its recent industrial past is plainly evident. Situated in the wonderfully desolate, old industrial landscape of Camel Quarry on the shores of the Camel Estuary in Cornwall, this new build house, sited over the footprint of the original building, is a unique and distinct response to the site.

Timber House M-M by Tuomas Siitonen wraps around a sheltered garden. This wooden home in Helsinki by Finnish architect Tuomas Siitonen has a roof that dips in the middle to allow views across it and a kinked plan that wraps around a secluded garden (+ slideshow). Constructed on a sloping plot in the garden of a house occupied by the client's parents, the building was designed by Siitonen to provide two separate apartments - one for a couple and their two children, and another for the children's great-grandmother. The ground floor contains an accessible apartment for the great-grandmother, while a larger apartment for the family occupies the two upper storeys.

"The brief was to design an inspiring and environmentally sensible house incorporating a separate flat for a grandmother, or for example to be used by one of the children in the future," Siitonen told Dezeen. On the other side, the building presents a closed facade to a nearby road and railway, while its height allows views from the upper floors and balcony. Exterior photography is by Tuomas Uusheimo.
