Nature Inspired Charming Family House in Ukraine

Located in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine, this 21,500 square feet family house is the dreaming house for most of people. Designed by Yakusha Design, this large house is made from concrete and glass outside, which might sound cold and something we want to get rid of. However, its nature embracing interior makes you feel fresh and freedom. Lots of plants, beautiful garden which can be seen clearly through the glass window, lots of river stone decoration and its shaped stool and mat. Most surprisingly, it has several live trees inside the house. Besides all the nature elements, children’s area and the corridor is a special honor, because there are an interesting mix of materials and colors, lawn grasses and colorful squares. In all, much of this interior is built on contrasts, cozy and warm wood and glass, living plants and ceramic tiles. I would love to live there.

Flotanta House: Exotic Wooden House Floating Above The Hillside

Designed by Benjamin Garcia Saxe Architecture, this beautiful wooden house is located in Puntarenas Canton, Costa Rica, having an incredible view overlooking the ocean. The house is built on a site with very steep slope and the the view of the ocean was captured only at the mid-upper portion of the site. To conque this constraint, architecture floated the house up in the air and allow the slope, the earth, the vegetation, water, and animals to flow underneath the house. This clever decsion created a very light touch intervention that allows the terrain to breathe whilst providing a spectacular view to the ocean from the key location on the site.
