Can I live here PUHLEASE?!?!

I found this home on Contemporist and had to re-post it here because I am completely in awe of the architecture. It's mind-blowingly AWESOME. And inspiring because Jeff and I are in the process of researching architects for the work we want to do to my ok OUR home and I would love to something even one iota as creative as this. The space was created by Spanish architect Héctor Ruiz-Velázquez and is the attic space of an early 20th century building in Madrid. It's composed of several different levels and angles yet it's continuous which makes the space appear much larger than it is (it being all white helps too)....and frankly, WAY more interesting. It's just plain NEAT-O.

Jeffrey Gordon Smith landscape architecture

I love gardening and really appreciate decent landscaping when I see it. I nearly had a coronary when Jeffrey of the firm Jeffrey Gordon Smith Landscape Architecture contacted us and I had a peek at his website. His landscape design skills are incredible and so freaking creative. His firm is based in Los Osos, California, and 'he has a strong conviction toward a “regional style”, encouraging the owners of his designs to celebrate where they live and create a stronger connection through their landscape'. I have a slightly different mindset living so far up north (unfortunately) that I love to use tropical plants (succulents are my favourites) so I can pretend I live somewhere far warmer. LOL. In any case, I'm not sure how feasible that driveway in the photo above is for Canadian climate when it would be covered in snow at least half the year and require shoveling but I'd LOOOVE something that non-traditional.

Ramón Esteve Estudio de Arquitectura

The quest for harmony, serenity and timelessness, atmosphere, universality and context drives the creative processes of Spanish architect Ramón Esteve. Think modern, creative, innovative and dynamic. To me they are monumental works, at one with their cultural history and the land on which they sit while providing a defence against the harsh elements.  A fortress and a home. That's one way of justifying a spectacular pool ... it's the moat! So much more after the jump.

FMD Architects

Fiona Dunin is the driving force behind Melbourne based design firm FMD Architects. Trained as both an architect and an interior designer her work focuses on materials and their use within her spaces. It's a modern look that is not precious but honest and obvious. It's not about hiding with layers but being out and proud in a way. There are clever storage solutions and light, always lots of light streaming in ... perhaps not with the black bunkers after the jump ;) but these stand in stark contrast to the Australian landscape. Simple, clean lines making maximum impact.
