Like a gemstone in the middle of the city Reflection of Mineral is an angular abode that measures 480 square feet. Located near the center of Tokyo this home proves that a little bit of geometry goes a long way! With the definition of a carefully cut crystal Reflection of Mineral is a neighborhood standout yet it enhances its surroundings rather than fighting them.
The home is surrounded by beautiful forest area and to give its denizens the best possible view along with complete privacy (which is not to find in this part of the woods) the architects have used glass and wood extensively to create a sustainable and stylish structure.
Elevated using steel poles and sporting an ‘all wood’ floor the HP Tree House ensures that you wake up the lovely sights and sounds of life on rainforest canopy… Something that is both rare and hard to replicate elsewhere.
Designed by design studio Johnson Chou this beautiful house seems to offer two entirely different worlds packed into one. The ground floor sports the kitchen living dining study and guest quarters which are all clad in some old-world charm with the use of ebony wood veneer panels.
The idea here is to try and incorporate traditional Japanese architecture and natural lighting principles along with modern minimalism to create a truly one-of-a-kind structure. And we can confidently say that Antonino Cardillo has succeeded at that.
Modern architecture and design is not just about minimalism and bling. Contemporary homes go a lot beyond stylish interiors and sleek lines and this ambient house in San Mateo County California is an example of how one can expand the interiors a lot beyond the four walls and ensure that the serene surroundings seem like a natural extension.
The entire living space here is designed to emphasize on the ‘openness’ of the penthouse and the lavish use of floor-to-ceiling glass windows ensures that you have a panoramic view of the sea no matter where you turn. While on one side the penthouse offers some beautiful views of the blue on the other you can take a look at the city lovely city skyline even if it pales in comparison.
