Collector Loft by UNStudio – Interior Apartment Design

September 14, 2010 By: archinhome Category: Apartments Design

Description of Collector Loft from UNStudio :
The design for an existing loft located in Greenwich Village in Manhattan explores the interaction between a gallery and living space. The main walls in the loft flow through the space, and together with articulated ceilings create hybrid conditions in which exhibition areas merge into living areas. While the walls form a calm and controlled backdrop for the works of art, the ceiling is more articulated in its expression of this transition. By interchanging luminous and opaque, the ceiling creates a field of ambient and local lighting conditions, forming an organizational element in the exhibition and the living areas. In addition the former windows in the South wall have been replaced by floor to ceiling glass panes that frame and extend compelling views, over a full glass balcony, toward downtown Manhattan.

Villa Johansen, Luxury Villa by Willa Nordic

September 08, 2010 By: archinhome Category: luxury home design, Modern House Design

Villa Johansen, designed by Willa Nordic, is a great example of functional and practical design combined with Asian serenity. Starting from the garden that features an amazing pond it took its inspiration from the Japanese and Chinese cultures. The black and white facade provides the character to the house. The interior also features very light colors with black and dark brown splashes. Although there are some elements of luxury as inside as outside of it. Marble floors, decorative stones, generous glazing and stunning staircase make that possible. [ Willa Nordic ]

Openhouse in Hollywood Hills by Xten Architecture

September 07, 2010 By: archinhome Category: Modern House Design

Description from Architect:
The Openhouse is embedded into a narrow and sharply sloping property in the Hollywood Hills, a challenging site that led to the creation of a house that is both integrated into the landscape and open to the city below. Retaining walls are configured to extend the first floor living level into the hillside and to create gardens on two levels. The front, side and rear elevations of the house slide open to erase all boundaries between indoors and out, connecting the spaces to gardens on both levels. [ Xten Architecture ]

Glass, in various renditions, is the primary wall enclosure material. There are forty-four sliding glass panels, each seven feet wide by ten feet high and configured to disappear into hidden pockets and allow for uninterrupted views and access to exterior terraces and gardens. There are also fixed glass walls, mirror glass walls and light gray specular glass panels which lend lightness to the interior spaces.
