A Good Look At The Kitchen Of The Future.


cut_02 cut_03 cut_04 cut_05 cut_06

Why should a kitchen be a permanent fixture? The Cut kitchen reimagines this hub of the home as a sculptural piece with personality – a place to both entertain and adapt to the needs of its users. The basis of the kitchen is a 3D figure that’s been cut in two pieces. The two parts then rotate and fix into position to present configuration choice to suit the aesthetic of the space and user needs. A line cuts through the top block creating the slot for a table surface.

The table can slide horizontally and rotate. The user can ultimately decide the final configuration of their kitchen. Additionally, the ceiling space becomes completely functional. A sequence of rhythmic profiles with inset LEDs create a changing configuration of elegant hanging space and incorporating units that gently slide down from the framework for use as both display and storage. Reminiscent of dancing piano keys, the ceiling system accentuates its ability to play different tunes depending on use, mood and audience.

Apartment in Stockholm Encapsulating A Glass-Walled Bedroom


interior-modern-apartment apartment-Swedish-design ideas-modern-apartment modern-apartment-2 modern-apartment-6 modern-apartment-8

This small apartment in Stockhom, Sweden impressed us with its original layout and stylish decorating scheme. Discovered by Freshome on Svensk Fastighets, the 34 square-meter crib displays comfortable living spaces with a powerful aesthetic appeal. The first interior you are likely to observe upon entering this apartment is the bedroom, creatively separated from the rest of the project through glass walls. Pebbles under the bed, a giant mirror and framed graphics contribute to the Scandinavian personality of this space. A series of accent items such as the coffee table, the candles or the fireplace give the apartment a mixed ambiance, a touch of rusticity and  traditionalism, connecting the crib with the historic character of the building. The living zone, kitchen and dining table are organized in an open layout. And when it comes to Scandinavian apartments, an irresistible terrace is a must. In this case, the small balcony extends living spaces, creating a charming venue for having coffee and breakfast during warm summer mornings.

Dracula’s Castle Up For Sale


Draculas-Castle-Now-Up-For-Sale-2 Draculas-Castle-Now-Up-For-Sale-3 Draculas-Castle-Now-Up-For-Sale-1

Now picture this, the Craigslist ad for Bran Castle, commonly known as Dracula’s Castle, which is now up for sale. It can’t be an easy one to write, but it’d be fun to read:

“New listing: 8 Bed/4 Bath castle near Transylvania… Built in the 13th century, but renovated in the early 90s… plenty of space… lots of old world charm… previous owner Prince Vlad III of Wallachia, aka Vlad The Impaler, was known for excessive cruelty, but the stench of 80,000 impaled souls is long gone now due to a newly remodeled kitchen and lanai… great play room for kids… asking $80 million or next best offer.” While we’re not exactly sure of those room details, that asking price is actually legit.

San Francisco Loft by Lineoffice Architecture

The aim of this project was to meet the functionally separate domestic requirements of the owner in a space that would feel completely open and uninterrupted. After the existing space was cleared two programmed sculptural elements were inserted into this multi-sided ‘spine’ that moves from one end of the loft to the other and  also a solid form that contains the necessarily enclosed bath and laundry areas. The spine houses everyday domestic components like storage, dresser drawers, kitchen cabinets, etc., while navigating the subtle boundaries between the entry, sleeping, kitchen and main living areas. The solid form is carved away using steel and walnut doors and panels to reveal points of access to the bath and laundry room. These impressions on the otherwise blank plaster walls of the solid echo the materials and proportions of the more articulated spine. The material character of these elements like blackened steel, painted and walnut veneered casework, black granite and translucent glazing was selected to complement and showcase the existing doug-fir columns, beams and ceiling without overpowering the space.

Sustainable Floating House Concept


Sustainable-Floating-House-Concept-2 Sustainable-Floating-House-Concept-1

Designed by Singapore-based architect Dymitr Malcew, the sustainable floating house is the perfect way to get away from all the daily stresses one experiences living in an urban environment. This house literally floats on the water, and thanks to the floor to ceiling windows adorning the dwelling, residents get to fully enjoy these 360-degree ocean views from sun up to sunset. The home was created for French firm H2ORIZON, and was constructed from sustainable materials. The residence is quite spacious with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room kitchen, and terrace. The home also features luxury finishes throughout, and with the ability to gently float through the water, you’ll be able to enjoy everything nature has to offer without causing any disruption.

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.

29 Square Meters


29squaremeters_00

As the name suggests, “29 square meters” is an apartment which covers exactly that amount of space (roughly 312 sq ft). Located in Wroclaw, Poland, the tiny home has been efficiently maximized by local architecture firm 3XA, who added a semi-mezzanine (an entire second floor level was not possible due to the restricting 12ft ceilings) above the bathroom and hallway, allowing for a rather spacious sleeping area. Below, the living room, kitchen and dining area were all knocked into one open-plan space, giving a sense of freedom and airiness. Additionally, to deceive the senses, a door leading to nowhere was added to one of the walls.
