At the same time, a high ceiling also means that there’s a possibility to have tall windows that go all the way up, like this residence that architect David Jameson designed in Maryland, United States. With stunning full-height glass walls that define an entire facade and even wrap around the corners, this residence gets to offer unobstructed views of the gorgeous landscape that surrounds it. It’s a house designed by REX and it’s meant to serve as a shared home for three generations.

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.
Advent Fournier Bathroom, 2017-03-26 02:37:21. If you like red, but think it won’t work in your bathroom, try using it within horizontal plane so that it does not catch the eye fully in a way that an upright surface, like a wall, will. A bright red counter top, in to which your basin is sunk, makes for an ideal starting point with crimson colors. Indeed, you could stop just with single red counter top. But, to set it off nicely use matching light fitting or two or, alternatively, buy some bright red towels to fit in with the look. If you know anything about interior design, it will be that red works well with both black and white. If your want to combine the three strident colors in your bathroom stick to some simple rules. Allow white to be the dominant color, covering the ceiling and most of the walls. Use black and red together, set against the white. Black floors look good in bathrooms. Use red and black next to one anther in a busier arrangement than you would for the white. Mosaic style red tiling with black grout looks good, as does red and black wallpaper set against a marble white decor.
Celesse Legrand Exterior, 2017-03-17 07:00:08. Instead of transforming the landscape, this house in Wicklow, Ireland, embraces the site and its slope with its sculptural form and eye-catching design. It’s a house designed by ODOS Architects with cantilevers and bright spaces that open to the landscape and invite the outdoors in. Every project has its own set of challenges. In the case of this home in Chile, the challenge was to position it at the center of the plot and to give it the smallest possible footprint and a low height. Mobil Arquitectos came up with the idea to shape the house like a croissant and to give it large windows and glass walls so it feels open and connected to the exterior.
Fleur Prevost Exterior, 2017-04-07 08:00:55. The geometry of the City Villa is a very interesting one, being the defining feature of the design ARRCC created specifically for this project. 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.
Aiglentine Dupont Exterior, 2017-03-11 07:10:54. It was designed as a weekend getaway for visitors and it has a pond and a series of open spaces which communicate seamlessly with the outdoors. What we love the most about this guest house designed by Desai Chia Architecture is the scale of the windows and how they wrap around corners to capture the most amazing views. The whole idea behind this cozy although pretty big house in Valle de Bravo, Mexico, was to offer the owners the opportunity to enjoy living in the middle of nature, surrounded by trees and tranquility. The design direction chosen by Weber Arquitectos includes a lot of glazed walls and floor-to-ceiling windows while the house as a whole was designed around the existing trees, preserving the environment as much as possible.
Chantrell Meunier Exterior, 2017-04-15 08:00:33. The monochromatic palette of concrete, brick and neutral color tones is intentionally kept simple. 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.
Irene Arbore Exterior, 2017-04-01 08:56:16. A beach house isn’t really complete without floor-to-ceiling windows or some other design strategy meant to connect it to the views. This house designed by Martin Gomez Arquitectos is a very good reflection of this idea. It’s located in Punta del Este, in Uruguay. In order to be able to frame these beautiful views, studio Element Arkitekter AS designed this house in Rogaland, Norway with a rather odd-looking top floor that’s partially cantilevers and resembles a periscope. Up here, a glazed wall overlooks the water and the land in the distance.
