When asked to built a house on a narrow and small site in Kyoto, Japan, Atelier Boronski knew exactly what to do. The team managed to give their client the perfect home, exactly as expected: a 230 square meter house on three floors, squeezed between the road and the river.

It stands on a site that overlooks Loch Dunvegan and it has floor-to-ceiling windows in every room, including the bathroom. Every window captures a different part of the view and together they frame the whole panorama beautifully. The view is definitely important but so is having a comfortable place from where to enjoy it. Architect Olga Freiman designed this beautiful retreat in Moscow, Russia and made sure to have a cozy lounge area facing the panorama framed by the full-height glass wall.

Several such structures were built on the shore, with areas that extend outwards over the water. Also located in Norway, this summer house designed by Marianne Borge and Kjetil Saeterdal manages to somehow make its inhabitants feel like they’re outdoors when they’re actually inside. It’s all about the openness of the spaces and the fact that the house has huge panorama windows.

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.

While you may be restricted in this sense, it is worth considering whether you can make any alterations to create more window space. To make the most of the light you have, neutral colors are the best choice for the walls. You can add a splash of color on the wall around the window for impact, but opposite the window you should use neutral colors to reflect light back into the room.

It’s what studio Clauwers & Simon did when designing this residence in Belgium. The building is organized around a courtyard and its design is a tribute to Belgian architect Juliann Lampens who is known for the extensive use of concrete both inside and out the buildings designed back in the 1960s. The impact of the concrete in this particular case is softened by the timber and the views of the large garden.
Chantrell Meunier Exterior, 2017-04-15 08:00:33. For a house that tries to close itself off as much as possible in respect to the street and the neighbors, this family home has surprisingly open spaces and facades. This unusual combination was achieved by moarqs + OTTOLENGHI architects by combining two contrasting materials: concrete and glass. The design strategy was to have a more open ground floor while the first floor is closed and private. Both floors have full-height glass walls but the difference is that there’s a concrete shell which wraps around the upper floor, framing the spaces and blocking the views but at the same time allowing them to be fully open to the courtyard.

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.

It’s small yet tall stature will get your plant up in the air so you can easily place it in the best and brightest spot possible. How about something that will hold more than one pot? Because that’s what you really need when it comes to plant stands. Line up your greens on this pretty white stand. This would be perfect for a kitchen herb garden.

Architect Guido Costantino wanted this two-storey modern residence in Ontario to be complemented by the views of its surroundings which become an important part of the interior designs thanks to the glazed walls. House Holman is an award-winning project by Durbach Block Architects. It’s a single-family home that stands on the edge of a cliff in Dover Heights, west of Sydney. The views of the ocean are breathtaking and they can be fully enjoyed from inside the house thanks to the full-height windows.
