Some Great Modern Gate Ideas

Modern Architecture September 21, 2016

Amazing Modern Gates

The gate to your home is partly constructed as a protective element, but it is also meant to be a welcome mat of sorts, an architectural piece that stirs your imagination and invites you to see what lies behind it. Most gates these days bespeak the owners’ aesthetic sense, and give a kind of preview of what you might expect to see once you are inside them. They can also play a little joke on the arriving guests. A modern gate might easily hide a Tudor style home, and a fancy vintage gate might hide a very modern home.

Gates can be used as sculptural artwork  and not necessarily as an imposing protective piece of architecture, and they are made of a wide variety of materials. Nowadays, many artists and sculptors spend their time designing gates and they can be made of metals, fiberglass, wood, and concrete.The gallery below is but a small sample of the many different styles of gates. And don’t they just entice you to take a peek behind them?

Look at this Tiny House Interior! This Is How You Can Add Onto Tiny Houses

Modern Architecture June 6, 2016

With a tiny house, you can divest yourself of unused and useless “stuff”. There are so many things humans can really do without – you’d be amazed at how much clutter we can get rid of and still be happy.

The cost of living in a tiny house is often much more reasonable than living in a large house. Utilities are all less, and you spend much less time cleaning and maintaining your tiny house. And buying or building your own tiny house costs but a fraction of what living large does. You no longer need to live paycheck to paycheck with an exorbitant mortgage.

This one is a modern L-shaped design (400 sq ft main house plus 160 sq ft “amplified” structure” made of Brazilian Abaco hardwood and corrugated metal siding, and it’s built on wheels for easier transportation. It’s by architect Brian Crabb.
