Contemporary homes are as much about the view outside as they are about the warm and inviting atmosphere inside. The Wallace Ridge home in Trousdale Estates Beverly Hills is a charming blend of both these elements as Whipple Russell Architects employed lavish décor and striking color palette to bring in a unique look to the house.
A curved staircase features a slatted rail that mirrors the corrugated lines of the wall. Once again metal and wood combine to create a look that is rustic yet industrial at the same time. Perfect for a space that used to be a silo! Below we see a bedroom that features a “Bed in a Box” concept. The best part: each one of these beds includes stereo sound and a flat screen monitor!
The next featured collection of dwellings is a series of modular apartments located in Japan. Built by Sankyo Frontier Co. Ltd. these residences are constructed from units that have been subjected to strength and water tightness tests. Not to mention wall ceiling and floor insulation and soundproofing have been enhanced in compliance with the Revised Building Standards Law.
Set in the city of Lima this beautiful contemporary house showcases the current urban side of the nation. This 136 square meter residence is dubbed as the Seta House. Designed by Martín Dulanto Architect the modern home is a flowing amalgamation of spectacular style and lavish lifestyle.
The presence of wood is felt even indoors as the flooring and sporadic presence of the material in exclusive corners gives the home a warm and welcoming appeal. Spacious living and dining areas are separated by a courtyard allowing for ample natural ventilation.
Rather than consisting of a silo converted into a home this next dwelling features silos that have been cleverly integrated into the architecture. In fact this amazing house by Hudson Architects is a converted 16th century Essex barn.
