Interiors: Courtyard House Somers

It feels like all our favorite interiors are coming from Australia lately! Seriously, gorgeous stuff. We’re loving the interiors (and exterior, when we think about it) of the Courtyard House Somers by Opat Architects. It’s got a pretty crazy exterior architecture with lots of different visual elements, but it’s the interior — Continue reading

Live Modern: Yo

Gray on gray on gray. Before you think this a too sad and gloomy piece of architecture, let us prove to you that it’s actually quite lovely and cheerful. Called the Yo House and located in Kanazawa, Japan and designed by ICU Architects, the home has a pretty futuristic, stark exterior — Continue reading

Live Modern: Page Road Residence

Ooh what a cheery house! We bet even on a gray day a house like this would still be full of people with the most pleasant of personalities and moods. Why? Well that gorgeous yellow-tinted exterior probably wouldn’t hurt. And all the gorgeous multitudes of wood tones, bold colors, soft — Continue reading

Live Modern: The Lanes

Say what you will about modern homes not fitting into the aesthetic look of an existing neighborhood, but sometimes it’s fun to see a structure that is just so original it excites and delights. There’s no way that you’d miss this house if you drove by it; the pointed roof — Continue reading

We Like What They Do: The Design Pallet

If there’s one thing we love a tad bit more than awesome modern design it’s awesome modern design made with reclaimed materials. It’s just impressive when you can take something that used to be something else and still see the potential in it (as opposed to just seeing potential in — Continue reading

Live Modern: Stealth Barn

Okay we know we say this about almost every piece of architecture we showcase on the 2Modern blog, but mark it: this really is our dream house. Actually designed to be a guest house or studio next to a larger (equally as awesome) structure, we love the layout; simple, almost — Continue reading

Live Modern: Casa Pocafarina

If you have a physical or visual allergy to concrete walls and ceilings, big picture windows, beautiful wood floors and hip furniture, you might want to avoid the Casa Pocafarina home in Girona, Spain designed by Hidalgo Hartman. Of course, who would want to avoid a sort of modern floating-esque house? — Continue reading

Live Modern: MYZ House

Oh we love tiny houses and we love houses made out of affordable materials. This MYZ House in Nagano, Japan designed by no.555 fits the modern bill, alright. We love that it seems to be a thin, narrow rectangular shape that goes from public to private spaces. Love the mix of — Continue reading

Interiors: Gartner Residence

You know, modern often means having to pack a lot of personality into a small space while not using a lot of elements to avoid clutter. We just haven’t seen a better example in awhile like this Gartner Residence in Venice, California by Bruce Bolander Architect. Wow it’s so gorgeous! Using — Continue reading

Live Modern: Architect’s House

What would a modern architect’s house in Finland look like? To a modern lover? Basically heaven.

Live Modern: House in Eifukucho

We happen to think a large part of modern design and architecture is helping people create a home oasis where they can retreat, relax, feel their most comfortable and creative and recharge before having to go back out into the world. Not all architecture has to do that, but it — Continue reading

Live Modern: House-DT

Last week we showcased a few beautiful modern homes from Japan and we’re bringing you another house from that region today. Called the House-DT (again, with the letters in house names?) we’re really enjoying the jewel-box effect we feel like this home has. In other words, isn’t it kind of — Continue reading

Live Modern: Row House in Goeblange

Just enjoying the open, colorful feeling of this home in Luxembourg. It’s a bit big, kind of quite big, actually, but just like how we enjoy and appreciate in modern design, it’s also quite cozy and homey inside. We enjoy those huge wall-to-ceiling windows that overlook beautiful outdoor areas. We — Continue reading

Live Modern: Shou Sugi Ban

What’s up with our obsession with modern additions to more traditional homes lately?! You know sometimes we start looking for something that appeals to us (remember that barn trend we were on for awhile?) and it’s all we can keep on our minds. With so many structures that already exist — Continue reading

Böwer furniture at imm cologne

We’ve been keeping our eyes focused on the international furnishings show in Germany, imm cologne, for any new or cool or awesome stuff when we came across the New Impressions 2012 line by German interior design and furniture design company Böwer. We’re digging. It’s kind of like a modern retake on — Continue reading

We like what they do: BDDW

A new aesthetic trend started growing a couple of years ago…a sort of look that’s one part traditional, one part masculine, one part hunting lodge, one part French country house, one part trip to the desert, one part girly and a bunch of other things. We’re not sure if anyone’s — Continue reading

Live Modern: Casa Codina

With so many modern conveniences that enable us to live in perfectly comfortable houses year round, it’s easy to forget that for a very long time, a comfortable interior existence depending on an architect or builder’s ability to situate a structure just so in a landscape so that sun, shade, — Continue reading

Live Modern: Schiller residence

We didn’t think we’d ever find a home with architectural photography that would rival that of our favorite home we featured of 2011, the House in Cadiz, but the Schiller Residence located in Israel is vying very hard for our affections. We must have a real love of rust-colored red — Continue reading
