The house specs for this home design are as follows:

3.5 Baths
Trophy Room
Entertainment Areas
Beverage Bar
Office
Fireplace
Double Staircase to Second Level
Storage Areas
Balconies
Galleries
Courtyard

Rural House Design

Rural House Design

As a blackbird spread its wings in the sun to dry, this black house landed in this rural area. The open side of the house beneath the wings is designed to view the closed side is on the north and there also is the house’s entrance. In the black paneling of the north facade is a work of art machined from the timber.

Under the wings, the natural tones of the interior differ strikingly from the wooden exterior, as the orange beak of the blackbird. There are white and even yellow painted rooms.

The warm natural tones are nurtured under the wings. The black exterior must defy wind and weather. The house has a barn-like appearance which suits the rural setting. The house can accommodate a work space, bed and breakfast (it was designed with BNB in mind) and kitchen on the ground floor. On the upper floor, under the large gable roof, are the living room and bedrooms.

To seem more tiny houses and some modular / prefabs by Onix (the designers of this house), find them in our directory.

The Mountain Chalet House Gets a Modern Update with This House

Houses June 18, 2016

We have here a contemporary reinterpretation of the traditional alpine chalet style of architecture. The structure has that interesting exterior you see in the photo, and the interior is a two story dwelling broken up into three sections — master bedrrom, living area, and other bedrooms — plus an underground elevator that goes down into a parking garage.

These four levels (including the garage) have 4 entrance levels for the house design. The house is the work of architects SeARCH for a Dutch client on this steep hillside.

The size of this villa is 400 meters square. How it fits into the line of chalet architecture is the chalet (“shepherd’s hut”) is basically a solid wood house with shutters and a gabled roof that rests on a stone base. The term originated in the Swiss Alps, where there were many of these shepherds. Over time, the chalet was made more elaborate with multi-gables and any luxury addition home buyers could think of over the past few hundred years of wealthy mountain homes.

Many of the chalets currently in the Alps are summer houses now, and aren’t used throughout the year.

The underground garage was designed the way it is out of necessity. They had to go through the mountain to create it. It’s just a part of building on a limited plot of mountain land.

The first floor (above the garage) is the “guest area” with several bedrooms. Then above that is the living / socializing area, then finally the master bedroom on the highest floor — kind of an “attic.” To see more of SeARCH’s work, find them in the Building Homes and Living directory.

How Concrete Homes Can Look Stylish INSIDE

How Concrete Homes Can Look Stylish INSIDE

You can feel safe and secure in a concrete home knowing that its exterior can stand up to the test of time, and weather, while still enjoying a stylish interior that is stunningly beautiful and cozy. Bedrooms can look as warm and inviting with specific style and color choices in a concrete home as in any home. Take your time to choose the right decor that makes you feel at home.

When you think of a concrete home, it may not sound warm and cozy, but these sturdy homes can be comfortable and stylish inside. Don’t allow the durability to fool you, the interior can be softened with colors and style. You can make the home warm by using traditional furniture and colors that are neutral and earth-toned or bright colors like brick red and yellows. The minimalist look is displayed in this particular home, which keeps it white and neutral and a great pairing for any style of furniture.  A minimalist look also gives the illusion of a more spacious environment.
