Bowden House

Nestled into a spectacular clifftop in New Zealand with stunning sea views, this curved house celebrates the native bush and outdoor living. Designed by architect Belinda George the holiday home features a distinctive semicircular form, making outdoor living a key part of the concept. The unusual layout allows a casual lack of internal connection between living, sleeping and bathing space, and guests are forced to engage with nature when moving from one space to another. There is a living wing, with a kitchen, dining, and living room, and a sleeping wing, with three bedrooms, bathrooms, and a utility room. These are connected by a covered courtyard that separates the living and bedroom wings and provides a connection between the bush behind and the bush below. With a relatively small 162 square meters, the house is surrounded by 235 square meters of deck, making outdoor living a key part of the concept.

WARDELL SAGAN APARTMENT

This original open-space living/work loft is the creation of two San Francisco art and travel addicts, Jeff Wardell and Claudia Sagan. They bought a 3,200 sq ft former Chinese laundry and restored it as a living space. They also wanted to include a home office and a guest bedroom without cluttering the space, so they came up with the idea of stacking two shipping containers on top of each other to create private space within the open-plan living area. source Like...
