You’d definitely have plenty of privacy and security but how would such a structure have to look like so it could more or less fit in a usual urban or rural setting? An answer to this question can be the house designed by Anako Architecture along the Rhone in Switzerland. The project uses concrete as a primary material and the house looks a lot like what would be a modern and stylized version of a fortress. It has an unusual form which mimics the silhouettes of the Alps visible in the distance. Walls of raw concrete define the facade and set a border between the interior spaces and the surroundings.

Look at Konieczny’s Ark, a project developed by KWK Promes in Krakow, Poland. It’s a house that was shaped by the site on which it stands in the sense that given the remoteness of the site, security was an issue so the architects found a clever solution: to design the house in such a way that only one corner touches the ground while the rest of the building hands over the edge of the hill. This solution also reduced the risk of landslide as rain water flown naturally under the house. So, you see, even if this concrete box doesn’t really seem to blend in at first, it’s actually very well adapted to its location.

It can take years to find the ideal location but when you do everything falls into place. For this residence designed by Hassell, it was the site and views that shaped the building. What better way to enjoy a spot in the mountains with views over the tree tops than from inside a cozy home that has a floor-to-ceiling window positioned just right…This seems to also be the idea that Fearon Hay Architects had when they designed this retreat in Queenstown, New Zealand.

This is a modern family home located in South Africa. Its design is a collection of rectangular volumes placed on top of each other. Some of these volumes cantilever to the sides, forming terraces. A stone wall contrasts with the concrete, adding texture and diversity to the design. Other contrasting elements include the brass front door which was custom designed and all the glass surfaces.
Advent Fournier Bathroom, 2017-03-26 02:37:21. Bathrooms should be one of those places that you can luxuriate in for a few hours without feeling guilty. No other color gives a sense of opulent luxury in the same way that red does. So, if you want to give your bathroom, or en-suite facility, a little extra try out using some deep red to bring a touch of glamour to bath time. Most bathrooms stick to white, chrome and occasionally blues. By going for lipstick reds your bathroom will stand out from the crowd. The key to incorporating red into your bathroom is not to overdo the use of the color.

It’s a series by Vo Trong Nghia Architects developed in Ho Chi Minh City. The main idea behind the project was to reconnect the city and nature and to bring more greenery into the residential area. This is the Binh House, one of the structures in the series. It has several terraces that act as small gardens and you can also see that vegetation has also made its way inside the house.
