This elegant open and modern home designed by Zen Architects relies on passive solar design to cut back on energy consumption and carbon footprint of the structure. Keeping the house warm in winter months and cool during the summer it is the form of the house that ends up being its biggest asset!
A vacation in the woods is always a magical experience. The peacefulness of the nature and the sense of being away from our fast-paced life is refreshing but one thing that truly makes the experience what it is is staying in a wood cabin.
Exposed brick wall in the backdrop an open self with steel frame and wooden planks along with the general ambiance of the kitchen give it a smart industrial look. The rounded island edge offers safety in a high-traffic area while the white worktop combined with dark island and bar stools paints a picture of captivating contrasts.
Another one by German-based Baumraum. Neutral tones are always a great option to pick when we’re working with nature! They have a sleek look and matte surface that allows the rest of the home to be illuminated with warm yellow lights. Different styles of wood pair with each other really beautifully and have the power to create a fairytale-like wooden treehouse that will be adored by children and fully appreciated by adults!
An antique cottage has a strong historic appeal and rocks the shabby almost abandoned look. It’s truly an off-the-grid paradise for those who are happy to trade luxury for nature’s delight. Sometimes the exterior of such a tiny hut almost loses itself amongst the matching trees. The dark and shabby state of the wood makes it an outstanding piece that embodies the concept of nature as the main building element.
A fully wooden cabin is lovely and traditional but it can become a monotonous sight if all sides of the house are exactly the same and there is no variety. Big windows are an important piece to include into the design as they will create not only an illuminated interior but also an innovative exterior!
Ever looked at a home and wondered how great it would be if you could also find space for an exclusive TV room study library family room or even a relaxing hangout in general. With space being the biggest issue most of us simply do not have so many rooms to spare.
