Complementing the nature, the San Lorenzo Residence adds a touch of value to the surrounding landscapes, without "stealing" their glory. Ideal for a family that seeks an airy lifestyle and overall, peacefulness, the house located in Los Angeles, USA, nearby a golf course, responds to the needs of the clients: it is spacious and it promotes the idea of open (and transparent) living space.

Designed and developed by Mike Jacobs Architecture, the residence is an uncluttered home environment, with a spectacular interior private garden. "The large open living space is central to the organization and performance of the house; the space of exchange. Pocket sliding doors open the south wall to the garden and north facing windows unfold to view the fairways create direct connections to the exterior. These large openings passively cool the house and draw fresh air deep into the residual spaces to naturally ventilate the home."  The house is perceived as the intersection of two L-shaped blocks uniting: one accommodates the social living space with the living room and the lounge area, that can be used for different outdoor activities and the other one, wrapped in cedar and stucco, the bedrooms.

Singapore Loft Industrial Expressive Design Showcasing Geometric Shapes and Volumes

Meet the work of Farm, an award-winning design studio that always looks to innovate and re-invent the familiar. The Brick Loft used to be "a dingy looking office unit", in Joo Chiat, Singapore, but it has suffered drastic changes, becoming a chic loft, that preserves its industrial expressive design elements. From the very beginning, the designers put the focus on bringing more light into the apartment and create a comfortable and cozy home.  The brickwork and the concrete details became the main d├ęcor elements, showcasing the loft's industrial-like character. The illusion of space was created by replacing the doors with playful, geometric steel details, painted in white. The white furnishing completes the picture and enables people to feel good about the surprising design.

Probably the most impressive element around is the spiral staircase, all white and with interesting rectangular cut outs. There's a serious contrast between the concrete floors and the bright clean-lined furniture, but after all, these elements, altogether, make the loft appealing and different. The bedroom and the living room are divided by a white rectangular block, which in fact, accommodates a small bathroom. The sea of white elements induces you the feeling of calmness. Ideal to escape from the city rush, The Brick Loft is a tidy retreat for those who are daring enough to experience the industrial-like environment.

Poland based architect Dagmara Obluska sent us images and information about a very interesting architecture project. The unusal design and shape of the Swing house in Warsaw, Poland were the result of the strict guidelines given by the owners.Here is more from the press release we were sent:  "To avoid confined spaces with onerous slants, which often become a nightmare roof, the roof is designed with numerous extended dormer windows and niches. This kind of roof allows for a large use without a significant increase in volume. Raise the ceiling in exactly the desired point. Such a solution is suitable for functional reasons, but also has aesthetic values.

The ground floor has been designed primarily as an open-seating area. The bright and spacious atmosphere in the living room is enhanced by the natural colors and shiny materials including mirrors, marble, granite, which reflect both the light from the large windows and artificial lighting point spread in many places. One of the most interesting features is the window in the living room – glazed bay window with height reaching to second floor illuminating not only the ground but also a mezzanine. The attractive balustrade is a smart combination of plasterboard reinforced with steel frame. The column design, which supports the stairs, is another interesting highlight. Decoration placed on the shelves, repeats the theme of stair railings". So…would you enjoy living in a place like this?
