Vitoria-Gasteiz Home by Patxi Cortazar Arquitecto

The Vitoria-Gasteiz Home is a contemporary private residence located in Vitoria-Gasteiz in the Basque Country, Spain. This luxurious dwelling was designed by Patxi Cortazar Arquitecto and it is characterized by a minimal exterior with a white facade with contrasting features.
Its monochrome interior gives it an air of peace and tranquility while also providing its residents with stunning views of the surrounding countryside.

Vitoria Gasteiz Home by Patxi Cortazar Arquitecto in Spain

Single-family home built essentially in the ground floor, leaving at the first floor only a little studio at the double height of the room and a guest room with bathroom.

The plot has a leaning slope towards the direction North South, so that the construction is located at the North of it, leaving as much space as possible in the South direction.

The project of the building obeys to a fragmented architecture, in a composition of several volumes, with flat or leaning roofs, depending on the direction and the spaces they cover.

The elevator, connected to the chimneys, formalizes the highest and slimmest volume for its functional necessities, which stands out by fitting around itself the rest of the volumes.

The building is covered by white limestone and black pre-patinated zinc at the leaning volumes.

The orientation of the day spaces is at midday and the night spaces at the orientation North and East.

The design of the building has been made following eco-design criteria. When writing the project, the environmental aspects have been evaluated and we have defined actions for the achievement of the goals, having checked their compliance afterwards.

The building conditioning is accomplished through a system of geothermal heat pump with a radiant and refreshing floor. It has mechanic ventilation with heat recovery, the gaps have solar protection with different characteristics depending on the orientation, and the materials used have sustainability certificates; most of them are recyclable.

Treldehuset – Summer House by CEBRA in Vejle, Denmark

Summer House – Treldehuset by CEBRA

CEBRAa Denmark-based practice renowned for their high level of architectural ambition, were challenged to design a small-scale house. The project called Treldehuset or Summer House in English, goes beyond all expectations.
The compact, modern dwelling takes the idea of a traditional pitched roof house and completely reinvents it, defining an architectural interpretation of the Russian babushka doll. What this means is that the design of the Summer House is effectively a double house, or a house within a house.

Treldehuset   Summer House by CEBRA in Vejle, Denmark

The summer house is located right next to Vejle Fjord on a scenic site with distinctive trees. The view of the fjord, the coastal atmosphere and the nature that encourage an active outdoor life had an important influence on the design. At first glance, the house is traditionally designed with a pitched roof paralleling the long sides of the site and a gable facing the view. However, at a closer look, we are dealing with a kind of double house – a house inside a bigger house. This idea evokes thoughts of the Russian babushka dolls.

The effect of a double house is achieved by placing the thermal envelope beneath and inside a bigger house. In this way, a roofed outdoor area occurs between the thermal envelope, the actual house and the larger shell, which give access to a protected area – a continuation of the interior which allows you, even on rainy summer nights, to eat, grill or maybe clean a newly caught fish. This transitional zone between indoor and outdoor constitutes an interesting space between the characteristic trees with a view of the fjord.

The heated part of the house is divided into two parallel spaces running along the narrow site. To the west, the common rooms of the house, including kitchen, dining area and a living room, are placed corresponding to the widest part of the outdoor area.

The smaller rooms, such as bathroom, utility room and guest room, are placed on the eastern side. All the rooms are regular and private, but the bedroom with a view of the fjord can be opened towards the living room.

The house is covered with dark slate on both roof and facades and is thus experienced as a frame in a single material. This exterior shell is lined with larch and is outlined by aluminium profiles. The interior is characterized by a white finish, concrete and sheathing of larch making a strong connection between the roofed patio and the interior. On warm summer days, the large sliding doors of glass can be pushed aside connecting the living room and the terrace.

20 Splendid Modern Hallway Designs Your Home Interior Needs

The modern home is a symphony of spaces that coexist in harmony. This includes the often overlooked area that connects the various rooms in the home – the modern hallway interior. For some reason, a lot of people simply ignore the amazing potential that the foyer has. It is a whole lot more than simply a route between rooms in your home.
If you are short on storage, you can expand it into the hallway. Alternatively, your hallway can be your private gallery in which you can display pieces of art or family photographs. There are plenty of opportunities, yet so many people are unaware of them. That is the biggest driving point that made us gather inspirational ideas today.

15 Imposing Scandinavian Dining Room Designs You’re Going To Adore

The Scandinavian dining room is the part of the Scandinavian home that gathers the entire family together for lunch or dinner just like in any other home. The difference, however, is that when it comes to the Scandinavian style, the dining room too is a minimalist space that can either be grand or small. Either way, it doesn’t take much space because it focuses on including only the things that you need the most to have a functional dining room. This makes it great for smaller spaces, especially when you have to combine it with another room such as the kitchen or the living room.

Welcome to a new collection of interior designs in which we are going to show you 15 Imposing Scandinavian Dining Room Designs You’re Going To Adore. The designs that you are going to see below are a great example of the minimalist features that the Scandinavian style is built upon. As you’ll notice, the accent is put on the functionality on the room while still making it look nice as well as fitting it in the overall design of the house.

16 Lively Scandinavian Kids’ Room Designs Your Children Would Enjoy

Every room that is meant to satisfy the needs of a kid regardless of its age needs to be carefully planned and designed because it is this room that the kid will grow up in and develop hobbies, interests and skills. This is also going to be the room that the children will use to play, study, rest and invite friends over. All of this makes the kids’ room a place that requires a lot of care and attention during the design phase because it is highly likely that the design chosen then will be the design that will remain over the years with slight changes to it. This means that you need to make sure that the design you choose will suit your children’s needs throughout many different periods of their childhood where their interests and preferences might change a lot of times. This is also what makes designing and decorating the kids’ room quite a difficult task.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || ).push({});

The Scandinavian kids’ room interior design on the other hand is quite simple. It is based on the practice of minimalism but also includes a lot of natural light, neutral colors and wood accents. You might think that this is not the right choice for a kids’ room because of the minimalist decor and neutral colors but the designs that you are going to see below will change your mind.

Welcome to a new collection of interior designs in which we have featured 16 Lively Scandinavian Kids’ Room Designs Your Children Would Enjoy. This collection is a new part of our showcase of the Scandinavian home design style which so far has brought us designs of the Scandinavian kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, living room and dining roomEnjoy!
