20+ Beautiful Modern Staircases

So much of the time, stairs look as if they were ignored until the last minute of the design process, but not in these cases. Check out some of our favorite staircasess that we’ve come across: Let’s start out with a staircase we’ve talked about before: Ribbon Stairs. Designed by HŠH Architects to mimic a delicate rippling ribbon, these stairs are beautiful but maybe a little scary to run up and down when you’re in a hurry.

Another focus element is water, found here and there throughout the layout, be it in the pool or the waterfalls decorating the small oases around the house. The house is a clear blend of simple volumes complemented by flawless lighting and natural elements. Opulent spa residence in South Africa.

Opulent spa residence in South Africa

Designed by Nico Van der Meulen architects, this , believe it or not, 2 floor residence features a stunning open entrance layout that makes the inside spaces seem like outdoor spaces or terraces. The inside pool, prolonged outside, contributes to this impression, as does the stunning 2 story height living room. The choice of materials is minimalist to brutalist, with marble and strip stone on the inside and a gigantic, very arguable freestanding concrete frame the size of the whole structure, on the front terrace and attached to the residence by 2 beams.

Aside from looking massive and even science-fiction-utopia/dystopia-like, this kind of concrete frame is the architects’ trademark. Urban Cabin by Fábio Galeazzo.

Motivos florais estão longe de ser uma novidade em matéria de papéis de parede, mas a designer sueca Camilla Diedrich descobriu uma forma de inovar: em uma homenagem ao músico americano, que perdeu a visão durante a infância, sua linha "Nature Ray Charles" traz luz para a decoração de paredes. O diferencial fica por contas das fibras óticas, utilizadas por ela para tecer delicados arranjos de linhas resplandecentes, com um resultado é belíssimo. Disponíveis em diversas cores como ouro, bronze, verde, azul e framboesa, os papéis de parede vêm em rolos de 135 cm x 260 cm que podem ser aplicados repetidamente conforme a área desejada.

12 Feet Wide Family House in Barcelona by Ferrolan LAB

Completed in 2010, the 12 feet by 82 feet home is located in Barcelona, Spain. Family House in Barcelona by Ferrolan LAB: “The house is situated in the heart of an old town district in Barcelona. The urban grid of the area is characterized by small, narrow and long plots. This house is probably situated in one of the narrowest spaces around the neighborhood, as it measures only 3,7m wide.

The dimensions of the plot (3.7 m wide x 25m long), its location (between neighbouring walls) and its orientation (N-S) dictated the development of this housing. Our proposed architecture attempts to take these shortcomings and try to turn them into positives. In addition, because of the pre-existing features, we decided to explore developing the house vertically, putting in different floors to meet the different needs of our project.

Therefore, the layout is distributed as follows: The first floor. Modern art - nova68 modern design.
