Greja House: The house out of the floating box in Singapore

Designed by Park+Associates Architects, the Greja House looks like a white translucent box from outside. The translucent glass is used to create a permeable skin that not only dissolves the boundary between inside and outside but also brings filtered daylight while maintaining a degree of privacy. This seamless fluidity is also extended vertically by connecting all floors with a beautiful central spiral staircase that is carefully positioned above a water feature which is carefully designed to be the main focal point for this house. Besides the water flow under stairs, huge living wall is also an eye-catching feature of the house, which cleverly blurred the boundary between outside and inside, making the house a living garden.

Unusual Transparent Loft in Kiev, Ukrainian

Designed by MARTINarchitects, this unusual loft makes you re-think about the privacy in home design. Belonging to a dynamic young lawyer, this bachelor pad was designed with his owner’s lifestyle in mind. The first thing you will notice is the unusual feeling follows the transparency between living spaces, dining spaces and the bedroom. Yes, there is no wall, no curtain, just some steel grid to separate living space and bedroom. Besides that grid wall and the eye-catching green wall in the dining space, all the other wall is made out of brick. Moreover, the light fixture and furniture selection are another highlights of this place. The wooden box in bathroom is quite interesting choice. Not sure is that just for decoration or it is actual storage space. But anyway, this 115 square meters loft just gives us a new perspective of home design.

Colorful and Fresh House in Southern Ontario, Canada

Designed by Prototype Design Lab, “The Aldo House” is an impressive residence located in Southern Ontario, Canada. The house is punctured by an atrium that runs the full-length of the house, topped with an equally long skylight. The rest of the building is developed around this central axis, continuing the game of harmonic volumes. Next to this architectonic path appears the most public area with the living room, dining room and kitchen, which opens directly onto a large, expansive back patio. The sculptural staircase leads to the second floor, which is again divided by the naturally-lit atrium. On one side are three identical children’s bedrooms, and on the other side a master suite complete with sitting area and library that overlooks the back yard and space below. A living moss wall and a bamboo garden is visually pulled into the inner spaces through a wooden deck, thus blurring the indoor-outdoor boundaries.
