We have often talked about how the topography of a site and its unique features are becoming an integral part of contemporary homes and this audacious house located within an abandoned quarry is another amazing case in point! Located on the edge of Wales this spectacular home was designed by Hyde + Hyde Architects to meet the needs of a photographer.
The last stop on our renovation ride is the beautiful Tower Suite in Italy that turns a Renaissance watchtower into a luxurious modern apartment. While the apartment is spread across just it makes up in style what it lacks in size!
Offering a bird’s-eye view of the historic neighborhood of Florence the exterior of the tower is left unaltered while smart space-saving solutions in each room use the available foot space to the hilt. Dark wooden floors exposed beams and smart decor create a relaxing atmosphere indoors. Designed by by Luigi Fragola Architects it captures the spirit of Tuscany to perfection!
It is that time of the year again when we all long for a fun-filled memorable holiday trip to a lovely cabin or mountain retreat. With the chill in the air well and truly here the image of a woodsy cabin surrounded by a scenic landscape is comforting indeed. Located in the renowned Martis Camp in and close to the attempts to bring a touch of “Texan personality” to the region.
The mood of the airy and modern living room swerves in a slightly different direction as the floorplan moves into the more traditional study. Lined with bookshelves the cozy space can be closed off with heavy curtains to become a private performance area. A small nook serves as a contemplative desk area to compose music and french doors reveal a small balcony for when a break is needed.
