Designers at E. Cobb Architects have outdone themselves with this luxurious Graham Residence. A consistent grey pattern — rather stylish I must say — broken with warm shades of wood and bold colors beautifully complements the amazing ocean views that are only enhanced by the huge floor-to-ceiling windows. Windows which actually define it as a ….glass house. Funny how a strong powerful material like concrete can mix ever so nicely with glass don’t you think?
Located on a 2500-square-meter property on the hillside near the historic center of Brasov Romania the impressive concrete and glass residential construction designed by Romanian architect Horia Reit is partly covered in zinc exploring the unique versatility of this material. Designed for a young successful entrepreneur and his family the expansive luxury residence was carved into the hillside extending toward the breathtaking landscape.
Nestled at the foot of the imposing Badger Mountain and overlooking the beautiful Columbia River this elegant modern residence is all about blurring the lines between the indoors and the scenery outside. Designed by First Lamp Architecture the lavish residence tries to blend in with the beautiful countryside while clean well defined design and plush decor give it a sleek and posh appeal. Located in the quiet little town of Richland Washington the was designed with the primary goal of fulfilling the needs of a large family while bringing some urbane style to a rustic setting.
There’s a reason why they call it the Box House — it’s really as small as a box. But there’s also a reason why we’re left drooling — its design makes the most of the space while remaining uncluttered and elegant at all times. To balance the textures of concrete the house incorporates plenty of glass which also serves to create a visually spacious and well-ventilated interior. Concrete and glass a winner again!
The extravagant home features a two-level swimming pool with waterfall and a sleek minimal outdoor fireplace that is flanked by plush modern seating options in pristine white. A large glass railing offers safety without blocking the breathtaking scenery on view while a stylish pergola on the far side offers ample shade on a sunny California day.
Dare to be bold with your interior design?. While they may seem like unfinished business for your home decor concrete walls break up the form and accentuate a room with their sheer elegance and their unique personality. The raw unfinished look of concrete is inimitable while the trendy industrial style of having it adorn your walls — though hard to believe — is nothing but inviting.
The entry hall is filled with contemporary decor in cool cream and white as the entire house seems to be drenched in warm inviting and placid neutral tones. Smart elements like the Shoji-style sliding doors and Isamu Noguchi decor further elevate the authentic oriental vibe inside the pool house.
