Aiglentine Dupont Exterior, 2017-03-11 07:10:54. We conclude our list with a gorgeous concrete and wood house located in Southern France. It’s a project by Pascual Architecte who designed it with large glass doors that open up the living spaces to the garden and also with a large circular skylight carved out into the terrace roof. The skylight is an unexpected and unusual detail. It opens the outdoor spaces to views of the sky and it also brings more light into the kitchen, which is welcomed especially in winter. What’s especially beautiful about this house is the dialogue between the concrete and the wood, two materials that complement each other in a really great way.

It has this very simple and appealing look and a well organized structure, with each of the three floors serving a specific function. The ground floor is a guest area, with an entrance lobby and other welcoming spaces. The first floor is where the main bedroom suite is situated and that leaves the second floor which houses the living, dining and kitchen area. On top of it all there’s also a roof garden and a glazed hatch that lets one access it.
Fleur Prevost Exterior, 2017-04-07 08:00:55. But not all concrete houses look like compact boxes or fortresses. This residence in Mexico City proves that a concrete home can also be open to the surroundings. This was a project by JJRR/Arquitectura. The architects made sure that the house takes full advantage of its location and in particular the views by elevating the building 1.3 meters above the ground. Full-height windows and a green roof terrace allow the house to blend in naturally and to open up the interior spaces to the views and the vast outdoors.
Celesse Legrand Exterior, 2017-03-17 07:00:08. Somehow, the idea of living in a concrete house doesn’t sound that appealing and that’s because of the cold nature of this material. Concrete is not warm or soft or pleasant to the touch like wood is for example and that gives it a bad reputation in a certain sense. But what we don’t take into consideration in those cases is the versatility, durability and in a way also the beauty of concrete. All of these are characteristics which can be exploited in great ways by architects and designers and these dream concrete houses are perfect examples.
Irene Arbore Exterior, 2017-04-01 08:56:16. The street facade is covered in fireproof timber and has a very understated and simple look. There’s a small private courtyard in front, sort of like a buffer zone between the internal spaces and the street. The wood on the facade is stained and has a rich finish which contrasts with the galvanized steel elements. The North facade, the one facing the river, has a totally different structure. This is an all glass facade which doesn’t exactly give much privacy but, at the same time, exposes the internal spaces to the expansive views. The glass also contributes to an overall look that’s robust on one hand but also open and airy on the other hand. Such contrasts are actually quite common with this project.

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.
Advent Fournier Bathroom, 2017-03-26 02:37:21. An on trend look for modern bathrooms is to expose the brickwork. Why hide all the surfaces under tiling, especially if the room is large enough that you can avoid splashing. This look is especially great in apartments but will also work well in regular homes. Keep your shower away from the exposed walls, and use an enclosure so that your brickwork does not become stained. The bath tub is at the heart of most bathrooms. For the coming year, why not replace your existing tub and replace it with one that has some more presence? There are plenty of novel approaches that bathroom suite manufacturers are taking to tempt you. From bowl baths, with overhead shower attachments, to one off bespoke boulder baths, you will find something that can make your bathroom unique. And if those bath tubs do not offer sufficiently glamour for bathroom makeover plans, why not order a mosaic shoe bath, which should be outlandish enough for even the most adventurous of tastes.
