The minimalist home as the name suggests still adheres to the idea of sleek and well-defined lines but it does so in a unique fashion. The central hall of the home is a seven-sided polygon and the perfect use of white concrete ambient shades wooden flooring and glass windows that allow for plenty of natural ventilation have made the home as aesthetic to look at as any other modern home.
Researchers and designers based in London and at the Technical University in Munich are responsible for the design of m-ch which mirrors the scale of a Japanese tea house. Functional and sleek the micro compact home makes efficient living a reality.
But architect Antonino Cardillo has gone in a completely different direction by creating a home in Hyōgo overlooking Ōsaka bay Japan that takes the shape of an irregular polygon. While we are not sure if it was space constraints that led to the design or just the zest to try out a new form factor the end result seems pretty cool indeed.
Not to mention the abode is named for the hemlock tree around which it is built. Check out the details at The HemLoft. In the meantime enjoy these images which show the truly stunning views from this Whistler Canada home as well as the practical yet stylish side of small-space living. Let your childhood tree house fantasies live on…
The designed by studio Bohlin Cywinski Jackson uses many natural elements which make it a part of the western oaks Douglas fir and the lush green yards that are part of this lovely creek. The 10200 square foot home seems to use mostly wood to ensure that the aesthetics of the interiors remain modern and yet ‘natural’ at the same time.
However underground houses are known to have excellent natural insulation and climactic regulation in all seasons. Situated partially beneath the tower the home opens through 4 fully glazed walls toward a sunken central courtyard.
In fact these contemporary dwellings can serve as ideal housing options for first-time buyers students military personnel and many others. You have to give snaps to designers who prioritize making cutting edge housing available to all. As the L41 website states “Small is beautiful.”
