Architects Collective’s Spaceship-like L-House

We never really pass up on a chance to post about a home that has a distinct, spaceship-like feel. Why? Because we love the future and we love spaceships, duh. This home in Burgenland, Austria by the Architects Collective definitely has a futuristic feel with lots of angles, but it also — Continue reading

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

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

Tiny metal modern box: Summer Cabin 4:12

The folks behind Imanna Arkitekter Architecture, who designed the Summer Cabin 4:12 project in Ingarö, Sweden, must really understand that while we love walking around and enjoying nature, we’re both terrified of bears and prefer a soft place to lay our heads down at night. What appears to be a — Continue reading

Mutation by Maarten De Ceulaer

What’s with this trend of posting design-y things that are kind of cool but also kind of creepy we’ve got going on this week? No comment. Just came across designer Maarten De Ceulaer’s “Mutation” furniture series. Kind of looks like he stuck a bunch of plastic furniture into a giant — Continue reading

Quirky modern furniture by Curtis Micklish

The delight that washed over us when we come across a designer that, even among all the amazing designs out there, is able to create modern furniture that we’ve never seen before is extraordinary, and it’s happening today while looking through the portfolio of designer Curtis Micklish of Micklish.

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

Optical illusions for the home are good, we think. Or at the very least kind of fun! Digging these shadow chairs and shadow rugs by Duffy London, helmed by witty idea-maker Chris Duffy.

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

Live Modern: Summerhill Residence

Live Modern? More like Dream Modern. This house is huge and magical. These are the two words that first came to mind when we looked at it. By it, we mean more like a compound than an actual single-structure home, considering this residence by Edmonds + Lee Architects in Kenwood, California, — Continue reading

Live Modern: Southampton Residence

The Southhampton Residence by CONTENT Architecture in Houston, Texas certainly doesn’t seem like the sort of architecture you might find in the “everything is bigger” state. We mean, sure, it’s a large house, but it’s also got the amazing ability of feeling really intimate inside. Really rich with textures that are — Continue reading

Live Modern: eco-PERCH

Yes for eco-friendly design! Yes for modern! Yes for adorable little modern pods for living. Seriously, could anything be cuter than this eco-PERCH, located in the UK, designed by Blue Forest Architecture (who have built an awesome amount of eco/adorable/treehouse like structures). Though it seems to be designed more as — Continue reading
