This stunning kitchen offers a beautiful island with causal seating for four. The countertops are a premium honed black granite, which contrasts nicely with the light wood cabinets and the lovely backsplash made by Heath Ceramics, with the color shade name of “olive gloss”.
The open plan living and kitchen area features a double height ceiling with an open mezzanine level above that hosts a home office. This helps to diffuse light into the space from above, especially with the white walls reflecting the light. A comfortable seating arrangement features leather chairs from Crate & Barrel and a Noguchi glass coffee table from Herman Miller.
The dining room is bright and airy with floor to ceiling picture windows that feels like your are immersed in nature. The furnishings are comprised of a custom table and bench designed by the architect and made by a carpenter out of a clear vertical grain fir and plywood. Fabricated steel pieces have been incorporated into the furniture pieces. The chairs that compliment the table and bench were picked up from Design Within Reach, the “Salt” chair.
This stunning staircase leading up to the more private areas of the home features a warm wood with varying striations of color and steel stringers.
The cozy sleeper sofa from CB2 in the office area is dual purpose, when lying flat it can be used for overnight guests, but not too comfortable that they will stay too long!
The master bedroom retreat is a tranquil oasis decorated in a soft color palette with bedding from CB2. A door leads to an outside terrace to enjoy the beautiful surrounding landscape of trees and mountains in the distance.
The roofing material is comprised of corrugated cold-rolled steel. A cozy patio space is a perfect area to sit and enjoy nature and enjoy the stunning landscape that surrounds the home.

Casa Planalto is a magnificent modern house demonstrating seamless integration of indoor-outdoor living, completed in 2013 by FC Studio in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Designed as an urban house for a family, the interiors are comprised of 6,458 square feet (600 square meters) of living space. The home has been oriented so that the homeowners can enjoy the open space in the summer and winter but be protected from the elements by being under cover. Two large volumes run perpendicular to each other to demarcate territory as well as determining functions and usage of the spaces of the residence. “A rectangular prism perpendicular to the street contains private functions of the house, which occupies half the ground and releases other half for leisure and landscaping. another rectangular prism, but in different proportions, it contains functions and social service of the house “, states the architects. The upper volume seems to rest on the lower volume, generating a series of projections which reinforces the concept of this project. “The vertical movement is the point of contact between them”. All spaces seem to link together through doors and walls that move, which makes the home feel completely open to nature. This makes the home feel light and airy, showcasing crisp and clean interiors.
Earthy colors, textures and the transparency of materials were purposefully selected. “While transparency integrates concrete separates. The concrete walls divide the space, while the large sliding glass doors bring the landscape into the house. The materials are sincere. The concrete, glass, wood and steel are shown in its essence, without intermediaries,” explains the architects.
The home serves as a wonderful example of contemporary Brazilian architecture, where concrete and modernity go hand in hand, but connected with the environment, with the trees and the amazing natural surroundings.

Monument Channel Cottage is a wonderful post and beam vacation retreat designed by Core Architects, located in Monument Channel Georgian Bay, Ontario, Canada. The structural wood and cedar shingle clad home is nestled on a rocky outcropping just above a lake offering large expanses of fenestration to provide the homeowners with unparalleled views. Designed a a four season home, the 2,125 square feet of interior living spaces offer plenty of function with a welcoming atmosphere, inviting you to stay awhile. Wood is used as a primary material throughout the home and is left untreated and natural on the interiors and finished with oil sealer on the exterior facade. On the outside of the home Ipe wood is used as a decking material as well as for the handrail. The home offers a lot of privacy due to its remote location, which made it tricky to bring in all the building materials, which had to be brought in by a barge. The cottage is self-sustaining, producing its own electricity with solar panels and there is a bio-filter septic system to treat the wastewater.

Trama Apartment was recently designed for a young couple in a natural and neutral color scheme by Semerene Interior Architecture, located in Brasilia, Brazil. The apartment is comprised of 753 square feet of living space with contemporary interiors and a unique design plan that meets the needs of its owners.
Description from the architect:
The apartment of 70 square meters (753 square feet), located in a newly built building in a new district of Brasilia, was designed for a young couple. Originally, the property was distributed into well-defined environments, including living room, kitchen, laundry area, two bedrooms and a toilet in the social area.
The new design should address the residents’ needs for fluid multipurpose spaces and at the same time, should translate into the lifestyle and emotional references of the couple. Thus, priority was given to free areas, integrated and multi-functional, adaptable to different scenarios of everyday life.
Upon entering the apartment, the barriers between TV room, dining room, kitchen and service area, dissolve from a permeable central layout. The metal frame unfolds in different roles: bookshelf partition, desk, and dinner table. An element that embraces the kitchen island and becomes the heart of the project.
The kitchen and the service area had their functions reduced to the essentials and brought together in one volume arranged linearly. The service area is easily camouflaged and converted into a background panel to the dining room.
The desk acts as a reversible environment through sliding panels, and can open up to the living room to fuse with other environments, or remain closed for more privacy.
We chose neutral and natural materials such as concrete and wood. The central metallic element brings an industrial character, typical of large cities, which contrasts with the vibrant colors present in objects, furniture and walls of the living room. The result is the freshness of an urban beach, so present in the memory of the residents.

Can Frit is a modern property developed by BOX3 Interiores for an English family from an existing finch, located on the Spanish island of Ibiza. It had an unusual layout and strange proportions due to the topography of the land.
We used natural materials to complement the existing period elements in some areas, while the retro-modern cement tile flooring strikes a balance with the sandblasted juniper ceiling and central pillar of the main room. The full width opening of the sliding doors allows for a complete inside-outside experience.
The reception space of the house was a decorative challenge; it was unusually large and seemed not to have a definite function in the house’s original design. The remodelled result is a wide entrance hall with high ceilings from which hangs a large cast iron fireplace. Together with a golden console, they give the room a welcoming warmth.
The kitchen’s central island becomes, both visually and functionally, the focal point around which life takes place. The rear kitchen, with sink and a working counter, can be easily hidden behind sliding doors to turn the dining and living room area into a reception area.

This family treehouse can be used year round for a variety of activities. The upper deck, with stunning views, is perfect for summer picnics, while the side deck is more suited for a quiet spot to read or relax. The interior has a couch for napping, a desk for writing and working, a kitchenette and small dining area. The initial inspiration for the room was a cozy spot for hosting lunch and dinner parties… in a unique and rustic setting.
The tiny getaway is anchored to a 90 foot spruce tree on the owner’s property, and has been stabilized by several fallen/dead pine trees for extra support. The spiral stair case leads right to the front door, where guests are welcomed with an open living space. To combat the cold temperatures in Colorado, Missy installed an electrical baseboard that will help keep the timber tiny home warm.
