Golden View Residence is the modern redesign and completion of a semi-constructed home by Workshop AD, located on the Upper Hillside in Anchorage, Alaska. The 5,000 square foot home had begun construction of the underlying steel structure five years prior, but in order to finish the design process there had to be technical and organizational issues that needed to be worked out. Emanating an extended tree house, the platform of this fascinating pad is perched high above the landscape via a steel structural system. With walls of windows, the interior atmosphere gets drenched in natural lighting. Inspiration for the interior design scheme was drawn from the surrounding environment, making the house “become part of that landscape and to feel at home in its surroundings.” Surfaces throughout the home showcase sophisticated living with walnut panels, concrete and stone. The culmination of these refined details results in the blurring of boundaries between indoors and out.
The structure is raised high up on a hillside taking full advantage of the surrounding rugged landscape, soaking up the phenominal views. The surrounding terrace wraps itself around the home so the owners can spend time outdoors enjoying the natural environment and enjoy life high above the trees.

INT2 architecture have recently completed the Interior TR project, consisting of a cozy studio apartment that maximizes living spaces, located in Moscow, Russia. We have presented to you many inspiring ideas on decorating small apartments here on 1 Kindesign, here is one more that will hopefully give you some great DIYs! This tiny space is comprised of just 430 square feet (40 square meters), designed for a young couple to live for a few years until they can save money to move to a larger space. A lot of us can identify with this, so why not embrace it and make your small apartment a home, not a temporary space, give it some personality. This is just what was done in this contemporary project, with the main principle to create a comfortable atmosphere, by zoning spaces into the needs of the inhabitants. The main functional areas were isolated, the bedroom and a working area, living room, dining room, kitchen and even a bar area on the balcony. There is a walk-in closet situated in the hallway, bathroom and even a small laundry space. That is a lot to fit into just 40 square meters! This project was an impressive division of space and came across very successfully.
Although small, the interiors feel spacious and cozy, what do you think? Could you live here?
Clever storage ideas are everywhere you look in this great studio design. Well appointed interiors are soothing on the eyes with a very clean color palette. Small furnishings help to make the space feel bigger while at the same time create divisional spaces with the separate arrangements.
A magnetic chalkboard wall is the perfect solution to housing a wall of spices. These magnetic spice containers can be found at places such as World Market and IKEA.
Tip: To help create more space for your washing machine, take out the door and install a curtain. You can purchase either a tension rod from a hardware store or a piece of cable from IKEA or West Elm to install the drapery curtain.
