Modern Houses for the Weekends
What’s black on the outside, red on the inside and located down under? This awesome house on the outskirts of Melbourne, designed by Australian firm Judd Lysenko Architects, draws its inspiration from American-German architect Mies van der Rohe – considered a pioneer of modern architecture. We think this home would make him proud.
Prefab Cottage “Crib”
This cottage home dubbed “The Crib” was designed with eco sustainable responsibility in mind. The 2011 Custom Home Design Award winning project by Broadhurst Architects may be small, but there’s lots to this little design.
Brick Countryside Home in Italy
Italian architects Park Associati designed this fresh countryside home with a nod to tradition, but its modern aesthetic is definitely the shining star. This brick exterior home welcomes residents and guests with an outdoor entertaining area we just love. This central courtyard provides the perfect spot for an alfresco meal or sipping a grass of vino while admiring the lush landscape here in the foothills of the Val Tidone, in the Piacentine countryside of Italy.
A Triangular Frame House
The award-winning architecture firm was tasked with designing an addition to modernize and extend the previously built vacation house and transform it into a contemporary style residence, while still respecting the existing structure and the environment surrounding it. According to the architects, “The architectural concept is based on a dialogue between old and new, coziness and openness, glass and wood and linked by materiality and details.
Iceberg Inspired Coastal Cottage Design Looks Surreal
The Squish Studio designed by Canadian architect Todd Saunders (his practice is based in Norway) brings Canadian and Nordic architectural styles here to the humble hotspot of Fogo Island, Newfoundland. As one of the stops along “iceberg alley,” this coastal community, though small, clearly had a big influence on the cottage design. With jagged, majestic icebergs as part of the coastal landscape, it’s clear what the inspiration was for the shape.
House Clad in Wood Lamella
German architects Titus Bernhard Architekten designed this cool wood clad house in Munich, Germany as a livable sculpture. The asymmetrical roof is clad in prefabricated vertical wood lamella that makes its way down the walls for a homogenous overall look.
Rustic stone home with country kitchen
Austin, Texas-based architecture firm Mell Lawrence Architects designed this rustic house right in their own backyard. Designed as an earthy sanctuary, this stone home design follows the lay of the sloped site with a layered layout both indoors and out. Regardless of where you are, the overall feeling you’ll get here is one of peace and serenity, achieved through the neutral materials, color palette and easy-going flow of living spaces.
The Maryland Architecture
They say salt is just the thing to bring a little flavor to the everyday, case in point – the NaCl House designed by architecture firm David Jameson Architect, Inc. Located in Bethesda, Maryland, this interesting home appears to be pieced together, like a jigsaw puzzle, with multiple volumes rising and falling within its single form. Dubbed the NaCl House (NaCl, the scientific term for “table salt”), there is definitely something scientific about the look and feel.
Curved Wall Architecture Framing
The home’s signature rounded facade curves around a circular pool, hugging its every curve and defining the stylish outdoor entertaining area as an apt introduction to the modern indoors. Lining this arching exterior, a curving glass wall separates the outdoors from minimalist interiors, which are clean and simple – utterly modern. A palette of white plays wonderfully against the dramatic views, which as expected, and surely as intended, remain the foremost focal point of this home. Mario Martins
