Oficina 3 Estudio de Arquitectura and Daniel Carrillo has designed this Casa López / Lujano located in Tijuana, Mexico.

“The owners were very concerned about the environment, specifically about energy and resource efficiency. They wanted to maintain their privacy, but also directed us to provide an open, light-filled design, that responded to the hillside site. The owners also wanted a more controlled garden-type of an area and a more natural landscape on the rear of the lot. Sensible green measures were to be included, although the project budget would not allow “Grand” measures”, the architects says.

The Black Desert House in California

The Black Desert House The Black Desert House The Black Desert House The Black Desert House The Black Desert House The Black Desert House The Black Desert House The Black Desert House The Black Desert House The Black Desert House The Black Desert House The Black Desert House

Stunning.

Architecture firm Oller & Pejic, in collaboration with Creative Director Marc Atlan, has designed the Black Desert House.

It’s a desert retreat with impressive views of Joshua Tree National Park in California. It’s not often that you see a black house, but the bold choice in color definitely offers a distinct contrast from the surrounding desert landscape.

The house is built around a central courtyard, which is set to a backdrop of black walls, midnight quartz, high-gloss anthracite and darkened steel.

The Pierre – Camouflaged Concrete House by Olson Kundig Architects

The Pierre The Pierre The Pierre The Pierre The Pierre The Pierre The Pierre

Growing up on the rocky island of Bornholm, Denmark, I absolutely LOVE this house!

Olson Kundig Architects created this camouflaged concrete house called ‘The Pierre’ (French for ‘stone’) in San Juan Islands, Washington. The owner’s affection for a stone outcropping on her property inspired the design of this house.

From certain angles, the house – with its rough materials, encompassing stone, green roof, and surrounding foliage – almost disappears into nature. Throughout the house, the rock protrudes into the space, contrasting with the luxurious textures of the furnishings.

Interior and exterior fireplace hearths are carved out of existing stone; leveled on top, they are otherwise left raw. In the master bathroom, water cascades through three polished pools, natural sinks in the existing stone. Off the main space, a powder room is carved out of the rock; a mirror set within a skytube reflects natural light into the space.

Modular Suburbia Wall Storage by Seletti

Modular-Suburbia-Wall-Storage-by-Seletti-1 Modular-Suburbia-Wall-Storage-by-Seletti-2 Suburbia - Seletti

I’m a huge fan of beautiful architecture and wood work. And this combination is awesome.

The Suburbia Wall Storage is designed by Note Design Studio. By Seletti.

Suburbia is a clever interpretation of the classic wall storage unit. When Suburbia is laid flat on a table or shelf, the architecture of small neighborhood complete with homes, fences, trees, and even a swimming pool emerges. Hang it on the wall and each building becomes a storage compartment, the trees become hooks, the swimming pool becomes a mirror and a paper clip and small cork memo board are revealed. This useful and versatile unit can find a home for all the sundries in kitchens, bathrooms and offices.

You can buy one for yourself right here.

The location of the villa affords pastoral views of the stepped terraces of an ancient hillside vineyard on one side and cityscape vistas on the other. The architects arranged a panoramic view over the city through large sized windows.
