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.

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.

“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.

Mack Maine – Windows Half Way Down.


Mack Maine is one of the most instrumental members of YMCMB, and has been for a while.  Not necessarily because of his lyrical prowess, or the numbers of records he’s sold, but because he provides a strong business backbone to the label.  This doesn’t mean however he’s not capable of putting out a surprising track here and there.  I’ve never particularly been a huge Mack Maine fan, but when I heard the song ‘Windows Half Way Down’, I was impressed.  Check the method below.
