Located in Holmby Hills, an exclusive neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, the Brody House is a 11,511 square foot residence displaying contemporary luxury throughout. The massive house was designed in 1949 by famous architect Archibald Quincy Jones and is defined as an essay of modernist glamor which “highlights the renaissance of two movements presiding over architectural thinking today: Mid-Century modern & Hollywood modern”.

Sculptural Showhome Pierced By A Central Courtyard

Casa De Flore by Arcadian Architecture Design 3 Sculptural Showhome Pierced By A Central Courtyard

A sculptural home in Taipei presents its facade with a play of light and geometry that mesmerizes passers-by. Spreading over 635 square meters, the surprising showcase house in Taiwan is known as Casa De Flore. Defined by the carefully designed transparent glass box presenting tall floor-to-ceiling windows shaping a lounge zone hidden behind greenery, the architecture plays with scale and depth to create a protective shield from the noise of the street. Imagined by Arcadian Architecture + Design as welcoming people with a receded facade adorned with a terraced landscape, this home in Taiwan features a special “heart of the home” – a central courtyard.

Casa De Flore by Arcadian Architecture Design Sculptural Showhome Pierced By A Central Courtyard

Casa De Flore is recessed from the road to provide a parking space and an open entrance. Past the massive doors, functional spaces are arranged around a central courtyard lined with pebbles. Bringing light deep inside the home, this interior courtyard is inhabited by a single plant making the whole house seem like a micro-cosmos. Three meeting rooms divided by shelves and an 8-meter-long reception table, together with a lounge zone accessible via sliding doors revolve around the central courtyard. Architects guide us through the spaces:  “At the rear of pebble courtyard, a doorway is leading to a residential unit for demonstration. The living room, dining room, studying room and master bedroom are displayed in sequence under a continuous curved ceiling to convey the idea of an open living plan.”

Photographs seen on Archdaily, courtesy of Shining Group,Inc., present the sculptural home from different vantage points, making it come alive. Do you like what you see?

Simple Geometry Revealing A Complex Interior Scheme: Teh House in Seattle

architecture modern house Simple Geometry Revealing A Complex Interior Scheme: Teh House in Seattle
Floisand Studio completed Teh House, a private residence in Seattle, Washington, USA. As you can see in the photos below, the exterior of the building displays a simple geometry, with two rectangular volumes placed one on top of the other in a black&white color interaction. The lower level protrudes inside the street-facing courtyard, hinting the existence of a garage. The opposite side of the house opens up towards a lush garden with water features. Generously-sized windows and wooden balconies provided an optimum connection with the outdoors.
design modern house Simple Geometry Revealing A Complex Interior Scheme: Teh House in Seattle
The simple geometry is brought inside of the home, where clear lines shape up the interior scheme. However, color is an important factor of the design, creating a positive vibe throughout and setting this dwelling apart from other contemporary houses usually displaying a sober modern look. The living area, kitchen and dining are all placed in an open layout; this particular interior probably overwhelms visitors with its tall ceilings, beautiful views and variety of textures displayed. We particularly like the bookcase merged with the fireplace wall, a major focal point of the social area. Feel free to explore the rest of the interiors and tell us what you think!

Villa Pruhonice by Jestico and Whiles Luxury 5 Bedroom Family Home Marrying Elegance and Technology

Located in a village near Prague in the Czech Republic, this luxurious five-bedroom family home is not only elegant and welcoming, but also eye-candy for tech-savy folk. Latest environmental design technologies were implemented by Jestico + Whiles to imagine and build the perfect family home for their clients. The amazing private luxury home known as Villa Pruhonice opens to the surroundings with a transparent south-facing facade shielded from direct exposure by balcony overhangs on the first floor and a cantilevered roof shading the private spaces upstairs. Cutting-edge intelligent home technologies and a showcase of  the owner’s impressive collection of cars make this custom home a fairy-tale piece of land built to exact specifications.

Villa Pruhonice by Jestico and Whiles 1 Luxury 5 Bedroom Family Home Marrying Elegance and Technology

Designed to merge indoor and outdoor living, the private luxury villa occupies 560 square meters. Ales Jungmann‘s photo lenses show us glimpses of this luxury family home. We see that the facade is decorated with light grey stucco and cement-based panels, while the interiors present a soothing mix of materials like marble, leather and timber. Awarded a high-level ‘A class’ European Energy rating, the luxury family home ” incorporates extensive smart features and uses the very latest technologies to allow the owners to control lighting, security and audio visual elements from their iPhones and iPads. Automatically optimized temperature control uses live data from the house’s weather station to provide maximum energy efficiency. ”

Villa Pruhonice by Jestico and Whiles 2 Luxury 5 Bedroom Family Home Marrying Elegance and Technology

According to the architects: “The entrance to the villa is through a wide glass doorway, with recessed, sumptuous leather seating and generous storage spaces. A direct view through the depth of the villa reveals the landscaped garden beyond, blurring the connection between indoor and outdoor spaces. As one enters the living room, a series of open-plan living spaces reveal the owner’s African artwork and are connected to a recessed, polished-lacquer finished library with a large fireplace. The kitchen and dining spaces are located next to the living room and designed to be a warm heart to the family home whilst providing the house with a contemporary feel. The hi-tech kitchen uses button-less technology and carbonated water runs directly from the kitchen tap.

One of the home’s show-stopping features is a natural oak staircase that connects the three levels of the house and appears to float in the naturally-lit triple-height space. Downstairs a gym and spa (featuring a state-of-art-sauna and Jacuzzi set in marble) offer beautiful views of the landscaped garden through large windows. Upstairs, bedroom and bathroom spaces look on to the south-facing garden and private terrace that features subtle LED lighting cleverly integrated within the rain-drip detail along the edge of the roof.”

Ultra-Modern Country House Design in Ukraine: Riba House

Riba House by SVOYA studio Ultra Modern Country House Design in Ukraine: Riba House

Located in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine, this ultra-modern country house was re-imagined by Ukraine based SVOYA Studio starting from the idea of adding insignificant changes to the space. A full-blown design challenge was born as the plans changed. The homeowner is fond of beautiful floors, so this became the starting point of re-decorating what later became known in the studio’s portfolio as the Riba House.

Keeping only the planning concept and some carpentry items, the design studio constructed a unique atmosphere just as their client requested:  modern and cozy. Placing the emphasis on the floors, designers decorated the spaces with balanced masculine and feminine elegance. A green wall lines the living space, creating a beautifully modern vertical aesthetic.

Riba House by SVOYA studio 1 Ultra Modern Country House Design in Ukraine: Riba House

The main idea was based on the combination and the interaction of color, material and texture contrasts. Black gloss kitchen and a moss panel, bright polished marble and dark matte wood, prominency and perfect smoothness are harmonized with eco-design elements. The interior concept can be identified by architectural design element “izdereva”, created by “SVOYA studio” – three columns, where concrete is enchased in wood. Unusual combination looks very harmonious and reveals ideologically interconnection of natural origins and urbanism.”

SVOYA studio also designed this eclectic apartment with mirrors expanding the already tall space and this remarkable family apartment embellished with luminous vertical gardens, both in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine.

Luxury Mountain Home Flashing Mid-Century Modern Appeal

Flight House by Sage Architecture  Luxury Mountain Home Flashing Mid Century Modern Appeal

California-based Sage Architecture re-imagined the aesthetic values of a mountain home with their work on the Flight House – a luxury mountain home in the Martis Camp development in the high Sierras. The architects give some insight into the fantastic story behind the architecture: ” Our client were long‐time lovers of modern architecture, with a particular affinity for midcentury modern design. This home was meant to be a place to get away from the city life, get back to nature, and “play together” as a family. We named the home, “Flight House” to reflect the concept of escape but also because of the curving roof lines.” Cross-ventilation and an abundance of windows create the desired effects, giving depth and a dynamic flow to curved design lines.

Flight House by Sage Architecture 1  Luxury Mountain Home Flashing Mid Century Modern Appeal

As Vance Fox photographs the space, Sage Architecture explains how the home took shape: “the home is graced by two large arching wing‐shaped roofs to shelter the main living space and bedroom areas. The two wings of the home offer very different experiences with the surrounding environment. In the main living space, the great room is slab‐on‐grade with a polished concrete floor that extends to the outside and feels “grounded”.

The bedroom wing “takes flight” off the land – as the terrain gently slopes down, the building gradually steps up, culminating in a floating 3‐sided glass box in the master suite for a tree house experience. The entry to the home is defined by a third smaller curved roof structure, sheltering visitors and creating a softly defined separation between the outdoor courtyard space situated on the front, sunny exposure side of the home and the street beyond.” So you see, this home was built on dreams taking flight and eventually became a mountain dream home.

Flight House by Sage Architecture 2  Luxury Mountain Home Flashing Mid Century Modern Appeal

Clad in stained cedar siding and Corten steel, the mid-century modern luxury mountain home was a successful attempt of sculpting a modern life in the forest.

This home puts a modern twist on what a mountain home should be. We were fortunate to work with clients who could see the sculptural beauty in the design and wanted to create a piece of art in the forest. Flight House was the result of marrying modern design with a mountain environment, with a little drama thrown in for good measure.”

Inspiring River-View Home as Prelude to a Happy Family Life

Mooloolah House by Gerald Smith Inspiring River View Home as Prelude to a Happy Family Life

Imagine raising a family in a home like this River House – a place where family and friends get together to enjoy amazing water views from the open space living area on the first floor. Designed by Gerald Smith, this single family residence in Minyama, Queensland, Australia, offers a living experience like few others. We can see from the photos how this home can be considered a bliss: it holds the key to amazing days by the 25 meter lap pool and nights overlooking still waters just a few feet away.

Inside, the double-height living room seems to be drawing in natural light. Polished concrete, natural stone tiles, hardwood timbers and wool carpet were used inside to create a welcoming atmosphere.

An outdoor living room and grill kitchen makes the delight of warm evenings and set the tone for cozy parties by the infinity-edge swimming pool. And who wouldn’t dream of raising children in such a beautiful location? A rumpus room on the lower level ensures children’s happiness and the upper level also boasts a fun-size children’s play area.

The master suite upstairs is a recreational space for the parents, with a generous ensuite, walk-in wardrobe, coffee and tea station. A balcony opens from the master bedroom towards the river, offering the perfect background for romantic nights.

Mountain Rustic Look Tastefully Displayed by Rock Copper Glass Residence in Canada

Considering the flashy nature and the innovative designs that rustic contemporary houses are commonly displaying, it is not easy to fabricate a home that can showcase a mountain rustic look with just the right touch of contemporary. “Rock Copper Glass” is a remodeling project carried out by cdrg+RedTeam in Canada. The moment you lay your eyes on this residence, you are drawn into its well-defined plan, sleek look, inspiring use of natural stone and integration of BC fir and raw metal. The house is a direct design response to its site, to the form and utility of the building materials, which combine to create a solid, robust structure.

Disclosure of the stone work, expansive art glass windows and timber frame accents creates a visual impact. The front entry and facade is aligned with the midday sun. The long side of the triple garage acts as a retaining wall. Inside this house, rooms slide into each other, dissolving the problem of further enclosure. The plan is unrestricted by the geometry and a sense of infinite space is achieved. Materials are reduced to a palette of metal, concrete, glass and timber, underpinning the desire for a rustic but still contemporary home to be basic and creating an embedded modesty.
