Built in Karlsruhe, Germany by Christ.Christ Associated Architects, you can see this house just has a lot of what we’ve been feeling lately: that at-night glowy look; lots of big windows, green grass, modern furniture. There’s just a sort of “epic” feeling to the interior of the space. Like every inch of it was built to convey a feeling of grandeur. And of course that fun shape of the exterior really almost makes the whole rest of the interior feel very unique.
With all those beautiful windows that open so completely to let in light and air and scents of the outdoors, you can see how this isn’t so much a home to keep out the environment as it is a home to commune with your surroundings. So, so awesome. Love how the materials chosen are really kind of gray and stark. Almost like it doesn’t want to act too excited to be doing what it’s doing but believe us, it totally is.

“Owen Kennerly of Kennerly Architecture & Planning, an up-and-coming San Francisco firm, recently completed this clever renovation of an 850-square-foot San Francisco row house, built in 1949. (We were fortunate to get a sneak peek, but you can tour it in person at the AIA San Francisco’s Home Tours this Saturday, September 17.) Kennerly took a small, four-room house and added two new levels, including a graceful master suite that he describes as “a ship in a bottle, floating above the rest of the house.” More on the “boat” below.” Love it.

Built in a rural area between Amsterdam, Amstelveen and Ouderkerk aan de Amstel on the tiny island of the Kostverlorenkade, the architecture was really built to interact with the sights that folks inside the house would see. A lot of nature, yes, but also some of the man-made world in the distance, too. We like all the sloping inside walls and ceilings, how sleek everything is and just how we’d feel really safe, we bet, in there. Spotted on the Contemporist.
