Located in Singapore, the Willow House is a private residence designed by Guz Architects with a young family in mind. Since there is litter wind in Singapore, the architecture took advantage of its hilltop position and opens up the building plan to make the most of the prevailing breezes. Not only is nature being allowed inside, it is a large part of the building’s aesthetics. Moreover, to relatively dense urban environment of Singapore, designer tried to draw nature in as much as possible – rooftop grass lawn, in-house plant and beautiful garden. Such a nice and fresh place for living!
This unusual roof park house is located at a vacant lot with a very steep down-slope from the street in Los Angeles. Due to its location and requirement of a parking lot for two cars, Anonymous Architects came up with a daring architecture concept – put the parking lot on top of the living spaces and create an open-air “garage”. It is a logical design due to the steep terrain. With the house floating over the hillside, the structure successfully reduces the amount of foundation required. It also means the only way to access the house is over the bridge, which brings a truly a unusual floating structure. Really smart and daring architecture design.
This beautiful penthouse located in a historic Edwardian building, near London’s financial district, on the Leman Street. The whole place is built on top of a refurbished building. However, when you look at the photos, you probably can’t find any trace of old time. Exuding color and spontaneity, the living environment is perfect for a young person. The view around is pretty magnificent and the careful chosen furniture make the place warm, cozy, yet with a strong contemporary and organic character.
This colorful loft apartment located in the central region of Belo Horizonte, Brazil, was re-modeled by Gislene Lopes who reinvented the personality of the home by applying some really strong color and intriguing textures. Eech piece of interiors is carefully chosen and make sure they keep their own feature and can transit smoothly from one to the other. The best thing I love about this place is its fabulous view which can be enjoyed from every room.
