Mell Lawrence Architect’s Mod Cott

Would you love to see a view like that as you turn the corner of your home, headed for your front door? We sure would. This is only a guest house and weekend retreat, but with sexy lines like this, our arms could be twisted to stay here year around. — Continue reading

Sauvie Island Tiny House (Of Our Dreams)

Sauvie Island Tiny House (Of Our Dreams)

If you’ve ever been on this blog before, you know how much we love a good tiny, modern cabin-like structure tucked away somewhere somewhat remote, still connected to the world through technology but just not surrounded by so many darn humans (this round-up of eight should be sufficient evidence). Well, — Continue reading

Owhanake Bay House by Strachan Group

Life MUST be difficult for whoever lives in the Owhanake Bay House in Waiheke Island, New Zealand designed by Strachan Group Architects. It’s like they’re living in some desolate prison yard. Yuck…NOT. “Located on Waiheke Island, a 19km ferry journey from down-town Auckland, the Owhanake Bay house hunkers-down below a ridge — Continue reading

1940s Retreat by Rick & Cindy Black Architects

1940s Retreat by Rick & Cindy Black Architects

We love modern. Like, real modern that is sleek and kind of looks like the interior of a space ship. We also like modern in terms of Mid-Century Modern. Retro modern. Shapes and lines that hearken back to that awesome period of design time. So when the two mix? Whoo — Continue reading

Tarrytown House by Webber + Studio

Bright, fresh and airy. That’s all we’re really looking for in a modern space (well, except when we’re looking for something cozy and dark…or something else…we like a lot of stuff, okay?!) and the Tarrytown House remodel by Austin-based Webber + Studio delivers like a mofo. We’re fainting over those — Continue reading

Summer House by Judith Benzer Architektur

Maybe it’s the light. Maybe it’s just the great angles that the architectural photographer used in the shots. The Summer House by Judith Benzer Architektur located in Burgenland, Austria is simply stunning. “The project Summer House in Southern Burgenland (Austria) describes a sharp-edged cubature which fits into its surroundings through its — Continue reading

Casa 8×8 by Marià Castelló, Arquitecte

Tiny tiny. That’s what we like when we’re searching for cool modern homes. Anyone can do something amazing with an unlimited amount of square footage to play around with, but we like seeing what hurdles a designer has to overcome when he or she is faces with a small space — Continue reading

House in Senri by Shogo Iwata Architects

House in Senri by Shogo Iwata Architects

If the M.C. Escher-like scene in the brilliant 80s movie “Labyrinth” had a baby with modernism, it would be this house. Architecturally speaking, there are a lot of stairs in this house. Now we’re in no position to say whether there are a gratuitous amount of stairs in this home, — Continue reading

Stunningly Simple Wood Details in Titus Bernhard’s House 11×11

Titus Bernhard‘s House 11×11 is quite simply, stunning. It absolutely sings with gorgeous yet simple details. Like the wood framework around the windows and doors. In the dining area, the large picture window’s sill is extended to create a bench for the dining table. In an upstairs bedroom, a wonderful — Continue reading

Casa da Ladeira by Oficina de Arquitectura

More stunning architecture standing in contrast and complement to a startling landscape, this time seen in Casa da Ladeira by Oficina de Arquitectura, located in Serra da Freita, Portugal. Set among rocky, well, rocks, the gray of the concrete certainly makes the sleek architecture fit more naturally with the organic shapes of — Continue reading

Clean lines and good materials: Casa oZs0

Such a sucker for stunningly simple architectural forms set against controlled yet natural surroundings. Love how Casa oZs0, designed by Martin Dulanto and located in Lima, Peru, seems to have a different personality at every angle you view it at. You could walk around the whole structure and think you were — Continue reading

Blair House by Bruce Bolander Architect

The Blair House by Bruce Bolander Architect, built in Malibu, California in 2009, might be an oldie, but boy is it sure still a goodie. Maybe we can just feel the weekend coming, but all we want to do is look at gorgeous modern architecture with breathtaking views. This sure — Continue reading

Purple Hill House by Iroje KHM Architects

“Angles is not something this house is lacking in.” “Sheesh, leave some angles for the rest of us!” “If a transformer and the mom from Beetlejuice built a home together, it’d look like this.” These are all possible first sentences we wanted to start this post about the Purple Hill — Continue reading

Skirt + Rock House brings the outside in

Skirt + Rock House brings the outside in

There’s this cliche phrase in house design that architects and interior design professionals throw around a lot and it sometimes makes us cringe: “Bring the outside in.” Cringe not because we want such a harsh and distinct division between the outdoors and in, but because oftentimes it’s misused due in — Continue reading

Pabellon en Lamina by Parque Humano

You know what the cool thing is about building a small modern place? You can totally get wild with it. As seen in the Pabellon en Lamina project by Parque Humano. In this tiny home — which seems like it’s probably a weekend house or some other non-permanent sort — a — Continue reading

Weekend House by David Jay Weiner

Hooray for tiny modern homes! Well, okay, if the title of this home is any indication, then this is someone’s weekend home and that means they probably have a bigger, even more gorgeous home somewhere else. But, what this architectural design by David Jay Weiner, Architects proves is that you don’t — Continue reading

House in Kohoku by Torafu Architects

This is gonna sound weird, but if gnomes were real and they had gnomes that really dug modern design we feel like this is the kind of home they’d live in. Maybe it’s that gorgeous green grass, but probably it’s the neat shape, and definitely it’s the cute and quirky — Continue reading

Live Modern: Orange Grove

Live Modern: Orange Grove

Though creating architecture that looks differently than the surrounding neighborhood is usually a bummer, the folks at Brooks + Scarpa in Los Angeles, California did more than an alright job with the Orange Grove project in West Hollywood. Love the industrial hints that carry throughout the home that in of themselves — Continue reading
