Portable concrete house by ÁBATON

This portable concrete house by ÁBATON is pretty amazing. I could see dropping one of these just about any where, cabin, beach house, lake house or even a pool house in the back yard. It could be a guest house/mother in-law house. I know the uses are endless, I really love that you can close everything and make is fairly secure and just walk away.

The outside is covered with grey cement wood board. Ventilated façade with 12cm thermal insulation around the building. Solid timber structure manufactured through numerical control; Inside timber panels made of Spanish Fir Tree dyed white. ÁPH80 has been designed and manufactured fully in Spain.
Manufacturing time:6-8 weeks. Assemby time: 1 day. Transportation by road.

Open plan living, London

The newly built Open plan living home is elegant and minimal. This home is truly minimal and filed with natural light which gives the feeling of a “greater” space. The cabinetry is amazing as it makes everything disappear when not in use. The wood work on the stairs is beautiful. The bathrooms, which are not shown here are pretty great a well. The highlight, Artichoke Lamp, Copper Designed by Poul Henningsen.

Simple architecture by Doisamaisv

I love the simple architecture of this home by Doisamaisv. I use the term simple to describe the shape of the home. The long house with glass ends is a great concept, I may have to put this one in the mental archive for the next house. I bet this could be done with a metal warehousing structure as well. Everything is so clean and minimal inside and out. I want to live this way.

Mid century modern by George Matsumoto

This house listing was popping up all over Facebook yesterday and I just had to share it. George Matsumoto is the genius behind this amazing mid century modern house that is for sale in North Carolina. To me the actual structure feels current, maybe because it is not so much post and beam. The inside and furnishings are a 100% magical mid century modern paradise. “Designed in 1954 by renowned Modernist architect George Matsumoto, the iconic Poland-DeFeo House is a classic example of Matsumoto’s genius. Built in Raleigh, overlooking Crabtree Creek” Could you imagine living there?

Living a more minimal lifestyle

Christina and Takaaki left Brooklyn for a more minimal lifestyle. They found and renovated an older home in Putnam Valley, NY. What they did with the home is pretty amazing. I am captivated by the truss work, it feels as thought the trusses are holding together the roof line. Takaaki fashioned some of the features to echo the ancient dwellings of rural Japan, 17th century, and his home as a child. The juxtaposition of the exterior and the interiors are beautiful and at the same time, linked by color.

Modern beach house by Decus

This modern beach house by Australia based Decus would be an amazing place to get away and take a vacation or maybe just live in it. The stairs in the second picture are amazing as the seem to extend right out of the wall. I love the bathroom, I think of it as more of a room, it is so big, I need that. I couldn’t help but notice the built in lounge chairs by the pool, pretty nice. Lets not forget about my favorite color combinations, black, white and wood all over.
