Nestled into a woodland area, this small, fresh feeling cottage is small but anything but cramped. Instead, it’s space efficient in a way that eliminates clutter and calms the mind. Affectionately called Indigo for short, this ecologically sound structure follows a modular building concept. The intent of this project was originally to explore how small but effective “mass-customized” buildings might provide us all with healthier living solutions while still catering to individual needs and styles. Rather than adopting a “one size fits all” approach to housing, Woonpioniers prioritized green productivity, ease, and customization all at once.
In conceptualizing the extension, designers aimed to bring sharp contrast to the old building. The brick house, which hearkens back to older elements of Art Nouveau styles and the Amsterdam School, stands out masterfully agains the black and glass of the new section, outlining its stunning minimalism. The new structure is built from seamless glass with subtle framing, meaning that there are virtually no visible barriers between the house’s warmth and comfort and the natural space around the fig tree if one looks out from inside the house. This means that daylight is given free reign throughout the bottom floor, keeping spaces bright and cheerful.
Fig Tree House is a stunning example of how longstanding city buildings can be updated and modernized without losing their old fashioned, more traditional appeal. Located in La Haya, The Netherlands, this tall home recently underwent a small transformation in the back in the form of a beautiful open concept extension designed and created by by Bloot Architecture. Because the house is located in an historic area, namely The Hague’s Vogelwijk district, the style of the house extension was kept a minimalist, making it contrast sharply but beautifully with the slightly more rustic red brick of the 1927 house.
Besides the beauty of how customizable an Indigo home is, they’re also shockingly fast to build. They are made from pre-fabricated, bio-based elements, making them the perfect balance between “mass production” and eco-friendliness. As such, an Indigo can be installed in a single day! They’re not just convenient, however. The curved connections you’ll note between the wall and ceiling are resistant to weather based elements, making the structure incredibly strong, safe, and durable.
A new building project located in the mountainous lands of Jackson, Wyoming has wowed guests with its breathtaking views. Architect and design teams at Carney Logan Burke Architects nestled a fishing cabin amongst the rocks and trees, letting visitors breath in the fresh air as they absorb the surrounding beauty of the Teton Mountain Range. Rather than creating a stereotypical fishing hut that feels temporary and makeshift, this team decided to build a structure on 10 acres of rolling land that feels like a true escape from busy cities and routines. The aesthetic and shape of the temporary home is somehow both contemporary and classic, giving guests an upscale experience without losing that mountain fisheries inspired charm.
Walking inside from the porch is like traveling from a nostalgic mountain home into a sophisticated New York loft! The decor scheme isn’t the only thing that makes the cabin appear interestingly contrasted and wonderfully updated despite the strong remaining cabin atmosphere. Designers also installed solar power to the home, placing discreet but powerful panels on the roof to make it state of the art and energy efficient.
