Some Really Cool Modern Homes...
Really Cool Homes
Sometimes while searching old files, pictures, books I find home design ideas that really are spectacular.. Long forgotten and tucked away they re-energize my style, spirit, and love of design and finding new and interesting things as I continue to work on projects, speak with other designers, or simply look around for fun..
Here are a couple of these old designs I happen to find recently..
Enjoy the pics and Post..
Here are the modern Rota house by manuel ocana – cool swimming pool on the first level. the Rota house is refurbishment of a house between party walls, Madrid, cool and unique swimming pool floor decorating inspiration. accouding the architect: dream was to have a swimming pool at home, commissions us the refurbishment of a dark dwelling between party walls in the center of Madrid.
The demands: satisfying her desire of having that pool, a loft with an elevator, and abundant natural light. Rota house of 8×8 meters on two floors and an attic, has a single facade in a narrow and dark street facing north and a tight corridor of 2×2 at the end. And it is in that area at the end of the plot, at the height of the attic and facing south, where one can find the ‘the best’ part of the house: wonderful and bright views of the roofs of Madrid’s historic center. That will be the spot from which to bathe the house with sunlight; arriving from the street and into that space will be the reward. In this way, from the dark entrance one reaches a luminous lookout with privileged views.
The lower level is waterproof (floors, walls and ceilings are painted with white chloride rubber and the sheet staircase is treated with marine varnish), which permits creating unusual comfort conditions in a domestic environment like, for instance, submerging in the warm water of the pool while it rains or snows. now Look the Rota House by Manuel Ocana – Cool Swimming Pool on the First Level with picture below:
