What floats your house boat, or would motivate you to live life up in a tree home? This collection features classic, contemporary, ultra-modern and futuristic houses that are innovative in both form and function – at once visually compelling and technically progressive living spaces. From DIY adaptive reuse to compact green design, simple and portable to prefabricated and offbeat, here are some of the most interesting homes in the world.
A complex layout with unlimited views of the landscape was the main idea for the design: “The Mirador house rises from the ground ascending to the main floor by a ramp, and is comprised of a large meeting space connected to two terraces that open to the sea and the countryside respectively on opposite sides, and two departments on both sides. The center of the great space is a double height area through which sunlight enters during the morning and the evening, and through which you may exit via a spiral-staircase to the roof terrace from which dominates the entire area.
Breeziness, both spatial and sensory, is experienced from the functional and personal spaces located at the periphery: “The study, kitchen/pantry, bathroom and bedrooms are tightly composed-like extensions or fragments of the Victorian house plan. In opposition to the dynamic space at its centre, the views from these rooms are aligned towards the more intimate spaces at the edges of the site. In this way, aspects of the existing dwelling are reinterpreted in the new and used to provide different kinds of space over a small area. This allows the substantial brief of a young family of 5 to be accommodated without a large footprint.
The work of this outdoor professional includes most everything surrounding a home’s exterior. A landscaping architect can even work with the home architect to choose the right spot for your house. From there, he or she will develop preliminary concepts for your front or backyard design based on individual needs, including the climate and activities that will take place, as well as layouts and planting plans. Landscape architects will also design any structures or outbuildings that will be added to the space. Any grading changes that will be added to the yard are also the responsibility of the architect. This includes any drainage modifications. An engineer can also be responsible for these tasks, but a licensed professional is fully capable. Like building architects, they will produce preliminary concept drawings, as well as detailed construction documents and planting plans. Three-dimensional renderings and illustrative plans are all supplementary
