House With a Swimmingpool on The Roof and Panoramic View of The Surroundings Can you imagine looking at the ocean during the day and up at the stars durning the night while chilling in the pool on the roof of your house? Sounds like a dream and those who own the Universe House located in Roca Blanca, Mexico live in this dream. The house was designed by Mexican artist Gabriel Orozco, and built by architect Tatiana Bilbao.
Overhead + Under Bed = Space-Saving Shelving & Storage Saving space is not something we do for its own sake – in this case, a cutting-edge media room was the goal, and cleverly lofting and concealing of books, CDs and DVDs provided the floor space to make this dream den a reality. Johan wanted to use ever spare bit of wall surface for a larger television and smaller wall-mounted computer screen – no dressers and few shelves getting in the way, nor objects behind the couch to cramp the distance between seating and screens. Wrap-around shelving features thicker top and bottom borders, creating a dynamic series of stripes that animate and decorate the space – being pushed out from the wall, these in turn allow for under-shelf indirect lighting in addition to a central overhead light fixture.
Lofted Living: Elevated Home Literally Sits on the Water Eat your heart out, Fallingwater. When most people talk about owning a nice house on the water this is almost certainly not what they have in mind. Most of the time, this elevated home sits comfortably on the banks of a river – but when it floods, all bets are off as shown as in these incredible images. Thin structural supports (that early modernists like Le Corbusier would be proud of) hold this unique house by John Pardey Architects high above the flood plain. Entrance staircases lead from the ground (or water) level directly up into the heart of the home on one side and to a front deck on the other.

Wholly Concrete Home! Foundation, Floor & Much More From its foundations and floors to columns, solid interior and exterior block walls, this house embraces concrete as a material in every possible way – yet manages to maintain a level of cozy comfort and respectful regionalism rarely seen in concrete home construction. The concrete is left uncovered in most places by paint or wallboard, save for the ceilings that were painted to reflect natural and artificial light throughout the interior spaces. Even bathroom, bedroom and kitchen areas feature walls of largely-exposed, solid- gray concrete. In key interior locations, green vegetation is placed in order to create contrast between man-made and organic elements – an effect also employed with infill furniture, cabinetry and other necessary furnishings (composed mainly of wood and plywood).
Yellow Brick House - Vilnius, Lithuania This residence in the Pavilniai Regional Park, near the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius, is one of those that we just have to point out, although it is neither brand-new nor unfamiliar to many readers.

Located by in the valley of river Vilnia that gave the city its name, the park and the city have a rich history with the oldest written records dating back to 1323. The Puckoriu escarpment in the park has rare rock formations from the Ice Age.
Space Saving Apartment, New York This tiny but highly sophisticated studio apartment in the East Village of NYC has made us very proud, thanks to JPDA. Not only was it built as a super efficient multi-functional unit but with the use of detailed mill work, the storage capacity was very cleverly executed and resulted in a super stylish studio with a decent amount of floor space. Shouldn’t all NYC dwellers aim to live like this? You decide… A schematic rendering demonstrates a realistic plan for this tiny apartment.
