That Tube Life.


There are various iterations of how urban dwellers will live in times to come, and of course, this is edged on by sci-fi films and various other architectural cityscape concepts. Above all, the vision of the future whether it be utopian or dystopian in your eyes is seemingly micro. One example of this is the OPod Tube Housing by Hong Kong studio James Law Cybertecture.

The OPod Tube Housing is low-cost, stackable micro-homes manufactured from concrete pipes. These pipes would be slotted in between building gaps rather similar to a game of Tetris. These concrete pipes are of course that of water pipes, transformed into a gorgeous 9.29 square meter home.

“OPod Tube Housing is an experimental, low-cost, micro-living housing unit to ease Hong Kong’s affordable housing problems,” James Law said, envisioning that these adorable homes be aimed at “young people who can’t afford private housing.” Albeit this ‘apartment’ is somewhat of an underground water pipe at heart, it’s hard to knock the fun-loving industrial interior. Compiling everything a young city-dweller needs, the OPod Tubes comes complete with a fold out bed, shower, toilet, fridge, microwave, cooker, microwave, and more neat add-ons.

The Windhover Contemplative Center is a spiritual retreat on the Stanford campus to promote and inspire personal renewal. Using Nathan Oliveira’s meditative Windhover Series as a vehicle, the chapel-like center provides a refuge from the intensity of daily life and a space for quiet reflection for the Stanford community. The extended progression through a long, private garden to the building’s entry allows visitors to shed the outside world before entering the sanctuary. Within, the space opens fully to the oak glade beyond while louvered skylights wash the 15 to 30 foot long paintings with natural light, unifying art, architecture and landscape. Rammed earth walls, wood surfaces, and water further heighten the visitor’s sensory experience acoustically, tactily, olifactorily, as well as visually.

California’s ‘Oak Pass’ House.

Build a massive house made of concrete in the middle of a grove of 130 beautiful protected old oak trees and you have an ugly disaster in your hands.  This scenario sounds likely but it was elegantly avoided in the Oak Pass Main House that Walker Workshop designed for a private client in Beverly Hills, California.  The house sits on a 3.5-acre site at the rim of a canyon, which is why the fantastic views were the main consideration of the house plan.

The ornate oak trees provide a contrast for the hard edges of the low-lying house – a delicate balance not easily achieved.  The use of glass allows for views and vistas over and through the house and makes the mass of the house seem much smaller than it is.  Structural concrete is the main building material as it lets large spans of space to flow into each other without columns or supports.  All of this leads to a calm harmony between the site and the elegant minimalist house.

The 8,000 square-foot (743 sq.m.) single-family residence includes four bedrooms on the lower level beneath the green grassy roof, two kitchens, a dining room, a living room, an office, a 900-bottle wine room, an exercise room, a media room, four bathrooms and a powder room, a foyer and an art gallery courtyard plus a garage.  This large residence is on the same property with the much written-about Oak Pass Guest House that Walker Workshop completed in 2013.

Solar-Powered Ecocapsule Allows You to Live Off the Grid Anywhere in the World


Slovakia’s  Architects recently revealed several exciting details about the Ecocapsule that will give you the opportunity to live anywhere in the world. Ecocapsule is a micro-shelter that operates off-grid by using sustainable technology such as solar power, rainwater collection and filtration, and wind power. In addition to this environmentally friendly aspect, the structure allows for worldwide flexibility and portability, since it can be easily transported and used as an independent research station, a tourist lodge, an emergency house, or even as a humanitarian-action unit.

Despite measuring only 14.6 feet in length, 7.9 feet in width, and 8.2 feet in height, the Ecocapsule can comfortably fit two adults and provide the same luxuries as a hotel room. A built-in kitchenette, running water, a flushing toilet, and a hot shower are now comforts that can be taken into the wilderness. For those that want to use this egg-shaped structure for scientific research, there is plenty of storage space for equipment and any necessary technology. When transporting this capsule, no special preparations are needed, since it can be shipped, airlifted, or even pulled by an animal.  

 

On May 28th, the Ecocapsule will be unveiled at the Pioneers Festival in Vienna and more details will be released then. By the end of this year, this innovative structure will be made available for purchase. 

The Netflix Workout Guide.


Netflix

When writer Jessica Catcher put out her TV show workout guide via Mashable.com, we felt fit to add just a little bit to it.  Watching TV doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to be a couch potato.  If one were to simply watch their favorite shows, and do some workout exercises while the shows were on, in theory the more TV you watch, the more of a workout you’d get.  Check out our improved list of Netflix shows that could give you some of the best workouts by just following a few simple rules.  Much like a drinking game, when something specific happens, you have a few actions to do… the more you watch, the better workout you get.

Contemporary House Maza In Mexico


Contemporary-House-Maza-in-Mexico-1

The contemporary dwelling was completed back in 2012, and features 5,263 square feet of living space. The home is situated in a natural setting surrounding the Lake of Valle de Bravo, and blends nicely thanks to the lush vegetation running all throughout the home’s facade. In fact it’s almost difficult to tell where the outside ends, and the inside begins due largely in part to the massive floor to ceiling windows and doors that open the interior up completely to the outside elements. The residence has been equipped with a multi-car garage in the basement, and a tour through the house reveals individual spaces designed as scenes – providing a unique experience for visitors and residents alike.

I don’t know about most but I would sure love to have a hammock in my place. I don’t have any outdoor space where I could put one but hammocks can also be installed indoors. In facts, there are all sorts of creative variations.  For example, did you know some people have houses where an entire floor is a huge hammock?  Check the method.

Vertical Glass House In Shanghai


Vertical-Glass-House-in-Shanghai-1

The Vertical Glass House in Shanghai by Chinese firm Atelier FCJZ, the entire house has glass floors instead of windows, so one can peer directly into the downstairs bathroom from the upstairs dining room. Concrete walls are paired with wooden formwork, and each glass floor fits into a pair of narrow horizontal openings in the walls. Extra lighting along these slots generate stripes of light on the building’s façade at night. Designed by Yung Ho Chang as an urban housing prototype for a competition in 1991, the concept was taken to reality as part of the West Bund Biennale of Architecture and Contemporary Art. The Vertical Glass House now serves as a guesthouse for visiting artists and architects.

While it’s designed to look like a futuristic canopy bed, it’s in the gadgetry where this thing really shines. The bed comes with everything you need to waste the day away, including built-in blinds for privacy, state of the art surround sound system for watching the built-in projector – yeah the one that’s connected to a built-in game & entertainment console.

Elegant Villa F in Greece


general 03 04

Check out this stunning private holiday residence Villa F located in Rhodes, Greece. It was completed by HORNUNG AND JACOBI ARCHITECTURE, with a very unique architectural design that sets it apart from its rocky landscape. The site of the holiday home in Rhodes/Greece yet possess characteristics and outstanding qualities, which we only attempted to frame with our design. The site is located three meters above a coastal road, which is bordered by a natural stonewall that has been equally continued for our proposal. On the one hand the continuation of the found wall generates a high level of privacy, while on the other hand it relates to the given situation, which we were tempted to preserve as much as possible. The holiday home was designed for a couple. They wished a separate area for guests, which we mostly embedded in the given topography by integrating the shady tree population and without generating an equally visible volume.

05

The challenge in this design lies in construction and the involved climate technology. The construction of the building above ground is planned as a prefabricated timber structure finished with white plaster, which generates an abstract link to traditional old buildings close to that site. The lightweight construction was chosen because it will be mainly used for spontaneous short-term visits. Massive building parts were avoided to reach a quick cool down. Through a mechanically controlled opening in the roof a well-known chimney effect will be activated, which starts at the massive base plate in the garage from where integrated cable ducts lead cooled air through the building. An additional cooling effect will be provided by the evaporation of the pool. The triangle-shaped photovoltaics on the roof provides the building with energy and enables a self-sufficient living.

Smart Mirror 2.0


01 04

From the kitchen to the bathroom or living room creative and useful furniture and home decor help us create a house to love. And it’s much more interesting than ordinary products make unordinary things. For example, designer Robert Grynkofki created the Mirror 2.0, which uses voice command, face and gesture recognition technology. Two LCD displays are placed behind a one-way mirror with a camera for face recognition, sensors for motion control and a microphone for voice control. To keep you entertained the mirror plays your music or movies, displaying your e-book or streaming the news. If that is not enough, it even communicates reminders or gives you updates on the weather; it can moderate the room temperature and dim the lights.

“Pyramid House” by Juan Carlos Ramos


01 03 06 07 08

The simple geometric shape of this conceptual pyramid-shaped home creates a clean aesthetic, while remaining extremely eye-catching due to its iconic though rarely applied form. Some highlights of this design are the multiple windows cut out of the four large triangular facades that allow natural light into the home. An enormous window covers one entire side of the structure that visually exposes and lightens the design. Viewers also get to see inside the modern multi-level interior which features a library, balcony, two bedrooms, and even a recording studio that have all been cleverly sectioned to fit inside this unconventional concept.

To obtain privacy and tranquility in these surroundings, we placed a garden and optical glass façade on the street side of the house. The garden is visible from all rooms, and the serene soundless scenery of the passing cars and trams imparts richness to life in the house. Sunlight from the east, refracting through the glass, creates beautiful light patterns. Rain striking the water-basin skylight manifests water patterns on the entrance floor. Filtered light through the garden trees flickers on the living room floor, and a super lightweight curtain of sputter-coated metal dances in the wind. Although located downtown in a city, the house enables residents to enjoy the changing light and city moods, as the day passes, and live in awareness of the changing seasons.

Juan Carlos Menacho Durán has designed the Chinese Coin House in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. “The sky is round and the earth is square. The supreme manifestation of the universal dialectic is the sky and earth, paired as a couple. In between both, lies man. This house inspires security and balance through its square form. Immersed in a round base, it inspires creativity and harmony from the sky. These two shapes -sky and earth- are present in the Chinese coin. The main shape of the Chinese Coin House relates to prosperity.”

The first floor is the main living level, with a large living room and dining room opening to a covered and uncovered pool terrace.

Australian interior design practice G.A.B.B.E have completed the renovation of the Brighton Escape project. The expansive, serene and textured luxury family home can be found in Australia. According to the interior designers: “A contemporary design with resounding vibrations to sooth the urban family. Like a seashell carrying the sound of the ocean, or a mirror reflecting sunlight, this space was specifically fashioned to capture and exude the warmth of the environment which surrounds it.”

Contemporary-Architecture-Design-Brighton-05 Contemporary-Architecture-Design-Brighton-06

The space was treated from its genesis, with the same respect for design as a museum. Carving of ceiling, walls and floor not only creates sculptural partitions throughout the residence, but with the spirit of a rock pool, provides channels to flow through and delineates ample space in which to dwell together. The space also lends opportunity for personalisation to the clients aesthetics and lifestyle through decorative items and furnishings. The result is a harmonious sanctuary that stands as a finished work of art on its own, and is yet constantly evolving with its inhabitants.
