Designed by Michael Katz and Janet Korne the L41home is a sustainable energy-efficient house that truly puts the style in compact living. In fact these designers are committed to providing modern architecture at an affordable price. The best part: L41 homes can stand alone as single units or they can be configured as multi-bedroom houses or high-rise structures!
On the other side of it are a relaxing porch and an infinity pool for a cool dip on one of those hot and humid African days. Interiors were kept simple stylish and are mostly clad in monochromatic colors while green seems to have been added in some of the places just to give the décor a feel of freshness and keep it in sync with a ‘nature-centric’ theme.
The small house movement also known as the tiny house movement celebrates minimalist living and the beauty of well-built compact spaces. Eco-friendly materials are often used and the small scale of these residences encourages clutter-free interiors. A large number of compact homes built in recent years have been modern in style as the simplicity of these small structures blends seamlessly with contemporary design.
Of course in the quest for finding that bold new look one cannot go too far and needs to find the absolute right balance. The Penthouse at the in Toronto Canada does exactly that with its combination of the classic with the modern.
But this wonderful penthouse designed by Domb Architects in a residential tower on top of a sea-facing cliff truly offers you some amazing sights and if you do call this your home then you are sure to be privy to some amazing mornings and stunning evenings.
One of the best things about smart renovation of an old home is that you not only get to have a brand new home that suits your latest needs and meets to your current taste but it also allows you to keep the spirit of the original home intact and the memories (if any) attached with it alive. And that is precisely what FINNE Architects have tried to accomplish with this gorgeous home set among secluded woods about 25 miles north of Seattle.
To ensure that it does not cause a detrimental effect on the panoramic natural surroundings the home uses various eco-friendly measures like a solar panel rooftop that allows it to go off grid and low energy lighting installations that save up on power.
