Raumhochrosen's woodland cabin in Austria provides respite for life coach Austrian architecture studio Raumhochrosen designed this compact timber cabin as a wilderness retreat for a life coach and songwriter. Tom's Hut is located in a patch of woodland in Austria's Wienerwald municipality, where it provides its owner respite from his busy urban life. Raumhochrosen prefabricated the angular, timber structure offsite before slotting it into its sloping, tree-covered plot. "If a mental coach is also an Austrian songwriter, living his life between extremes, he needs a woodland wilderness hut as a balance to his life in the middle of the town," said the architects. "This simple house refers intensively to its environment, follows the contour of a previous, decaying building and was really drafted around a man and his passions." Vertical lengths of timber clad the walls of the hut, while metal sheeting covers its mono-pitched roof and chimney.

Kombinat designs kitchen-style workplace for Vienna apartment This Vienna apartment, renovated by Slovenian architects Kombinat, features a hybrid living space with room for both cooking and working. The firm demolished a partition wall to create the space in the 96-square-metre apartment, which overlooks a street in the Austrian capital. To enable this area to serve as a kitchen, office and meeting place, Kombinat installed a long counter that functions as a dining table but also a workstation when required. Wooden storage adjacent to the front window forms both a kitchen counter and a place for readers to perch. "This is the place to cook, eat, read and write, but first and foremost, it is a place to gather and meet," said the studio, which previously converted an Alpine chalet into a house with timber shutters like a sliding puzzle.

Welcome To "Bestie Row": Lifelong Friends Build Row Of Tiny Houses In The Middle Of Nowhere. Some friendships last forever. You hear of lifelong friends often living in the same towns just so they can socialize whenever they wish, be a part of each other’s family lives, and finally grow to be the grey-haired besties who rock on the porch and talk about the “good ol’ days”. Four couples who had been best friends for 20 years decided they were going to trump living in the same town.

Willem Dudok: Meet the Father of Dutch Modernism Willem Marinus Dudok (6 July 1884 - 6 July 1974) was one of The Netherlands' most influential Modernist architects. Formally trained as an engineer, Dudok spent his formative years designing military barracks for the Dutch forces, and his time with the military has been credited with the development of his early linear style, though he was known to borrow elements from Frank Lloyd Wright's prairie school of architecture. Dudok's architectural legacy is undeniable: with a career spanning several decades, his portfolio encompasses nearly all civic buildings in Hilversum, along with a series of projects in Rotterdam, Utrecht, and Paris, among others.
