The Urban Tree House

Living up amongst the branches. Eating breakfast with the birds. Sleeping in your own tree house. Pander to your adventurous inner child next time you need somewhere to stay in Berlin. That's right. You can rent out your own Baumhaus by baumraum. The Urban Tree House designed by Andreas Wenning.

Haptic Architects

London and Oslo based Haptic Architects have reached into the unused loft above this top floor Olso apartment to create a light filled home. Vertical lines heighten the space while positive and negative space define the areas in otherwise open plan living. File away the staircase in your inspiration folders. Yes I know not to code in many countries but a work of art, a domestic sculpture. Inspiration doesn't always have to be practical. A dream, a fleeting thought. A joy. Like the fireplace in the kitchen. The true hearth in the home.

Light wells delineate space within the open plan and clean, minimal lines allow the narrow space to appear so much bigger. The Bondi House by Fearns Studio.

Railway House

I love a well-executed conversion. This one is a former railway cottage situated between a railway line and a national park in Velsen, The Netherlands. It was designed by ZW6 Interiors and is such a beautiful marriage of old heritage and modern aesthetics. Steel, concrete & glass blend magically with greenery, crumbled brick and wooden beams. What a dream house.
