Silver House by Hyde

With an older land rover sitting out front, sits another gem a Delorean saw in the 80s movie – back to the future. The Silver House by Hyde is the ideal home for a bachelor with friends and family to host. The house was built from solid wood beams and stone walls making this the perfect manly structural design. Honey wheat colored wood floors throughout the house with a deck wrapped in glass railing. You would love this home as much as I would if you had a chance to sleep overnight.

Breac House

Located on a little cliff where the land joins the sea, the Breac House is a lyric to its Irish origins. Individually the rooms are filled with custom-crafted king beds dressed in pure Irish wool duvets and hand-woven Donegal tweed throws. Oak-cased windows fitted by local joiners frame in views of the surrounding landscape, while a private terrace immerses you in it. Breakfast is served in bed through a private hatch and features a mix of homemade items and local produce. The house has a library, lounge, and garden for some laid back entertainment or a number of beaches, lakes, and mountains are just a bike ride away.

DD16 Floating House


DD16 Floating House






BIO-architects are a Russian firm who has recently revealed their freshest contemporary modular cabin—and this one floats on water, believe it or not. Prefabricated off-site, the DD16 house was dropped on a lake near Moscow and is lightweight and strong enough to float and withstand severe winter heights. Designed for remote locations, the off-grid cabin uses solar energy for electricity, draws fresh water from the lake, and uses a composting toilet for waste.

Self-taught designer Fernando Abellanas designs Urban Cabin


Self-taught designer Fernando Abellanas designs Urban Cabin


 

Seldom we feel like we have nothing when we have no capital to back our projects, but we do, we have our talents, skills, and determination to be the creative genius. Self-taught designer Fernando Abellanas proves that talent meshed with hard work produces greatness with his Urban Cabin he built beneath the energetic city bridge of Valencia. Abellanas, who designs furniture and lighting under the studio name Lebrel, formed the tiny timber- and metal-framed cabin in a matter of two weeks.

By designing a set of wheels that allow the studio to be moved using only a hand crank along the preexisting concrete columns of the bridge, Abellanas is able to move the studio as he wishes.

Abellanas is able to hide from the hectic city pace without having to hide away somewhere nestled deep in the forest for peace.

Seaside Residence overlooks the Jersey Shore

The architects of Jeff Jordan used a cladding material to compliment the beach house living characteristic. The most significant slice of this house is the second-floor living space that extends out to the sun deck to allow this couple to soak in the sun and the vast ocean views surrounding this home. Zoning was important in this neighborhood so the architects had to respect the zoning laws while building a beach house that accommodated the sea view, while not building higher than zoning allows.

Home in Holland shaped like a Giant A



The house by Ruud Visser Architects features a two-tone brick facade that looks like an enormous letter A, while its posterior is a three-storey wall of windows to offer views of nature’s sanctuary.

Architects designed the front of the building to coordinate with masonry of its traditional neighbors, yet adding a lighter colored brick to outline and highlight its existence.




The studio said,

“The main challenge was to blend a new, contemporary, house into this complex historic setting. We decided to adapt the local ‘messiness’ into our design.”

The homes sides were left all white to give that contemporary broader appeal.

Humble Cabin

Moxon Architects design humble cabin close to Scotlands National Park area which creates a lovely mountain view backdrop inside the scenic serene atmosphere that will calm anyone’s soul that dwells in such a forsaken spot. The plan was densely inspired by innovator works of the 20th century. The architects also took visible sources from humble structures located near the cabin for its creation. The snow sacredly shelters the hut and makes its existence even more unimaginable.

Cabin Jesper

The volume of the construction is quiet and has a strict expression that works as a contrast to the soft curves in the open coastal landscape. The building was planned to function like a windscreen around an indoor atrium. The rooms open up towards a screened outdoor area and this in turn communicates with the sea and the view.

The constructive parts have been executed in laminated wood, dressed with cover boarding of untreated pine. The wood will turn grey over time and be more in harmony with the surroundings regarding colour.
The interior includes refined details that are in contrast to the tough landscape.

Arkitektene Einar Hagem og daglig leder Svein Lund, begge fra Lund Hagem Arkitektene har tegnet denne hytta pŒ ¿ya Jesper i Krager¿skj¾rgŒrden innenfor Jomfruland. Matrialene er sedertre, slipt betong og sink. Utsikt fra stua.

Pine Cabin

Finding the time to rest without the task to fall asleep, I’m not saying you shouldn’t ever sleep but if your surroundings don’t make a peep then those weary thoughts that leave you stressed out, trembling so deep in thought, you have to release them through some type of outlet. Cabins have always done the job for me. Usually, in the fall I rent out a cabin for my family and me to relax and unwind. Architect Jon Danielsen Aarhus designed this pine-clad shelter in rural Norway for his family, forming a large glazed living area with mountain and lake views. Located between Oslo and Bergen, the cabin named Hytte Ustaoset is situated 1,066 meters above sea level at the foot of Hardangervidda – one of the largest mountain plateaus of its kind in Europe.
