Rocky Seaview Show

A'tolan House by Create + Think Studio

Perched on a rocky outcrop on the eastern coast of Taiwan overlooking the Pacific Ocean is a low slung villa which combines a strong masculine design with naturalistic touches which fits in with the landscape perfectly.

Designed by Taipei-based architects Create + Think Studio, the three-level building is carved into the rocks, leaving a sleek and discrete presence in the landscape.  The metal structure of the exterior projects a robust, almost industrial character, complemented by extensive floor-to-ceiling windows which frame the ocean views beautifully.  Walls made from local boulders provide a visual link to the landscape as well as a nod to traditional construction methods.

The dark wood floors, neutral colour palette and low furniture inside the house makes it feel cosy and minimises distraction from the stunning ocean views.  An extensive outdoor entertainment area complete with an inviting infinity pool adds to the appeal of the house, which looks just as suitable for quiet contemplation as for wild parties.

Industrial Style

Product Inspiration

Sleek wood furniture and neutral colours go really well with industrial style spaces.  Use the Koila lounge chair from Alki as a compact sofa, team it with the Longlegs shelving system from Frederik Roije and a Golran Lake rug in grey to create a stylish and understated design scheme.

 
 

Use low key, subtle floor and table lights such as the concrete floor light from Lyon Beton, the JWDA concrete light from Menu and the Mr Ed table light from Functionals to create an atmospheric warm glow.

 
 

Create your own "textured" wall surfaces using wallpaper from NLXL, which have no repeats within the roll which makes it great for creating unique designs.  We particularly like the gold marble, silver bricks and plywood effects.

Shutter House by State of Kin

Japanese zen style goes far beyond minimalist white spaces. It is about thoughtful spaces which encourage the contemplation of light, colours, textures and shapes - the building blocks of nature and beauty. The Shutter House in Perth is a great example.

Terrazzo Things from Lick My Brick

There was a time when the use of marble was largely restricted to floors, posh kitchen counters and grave statutes. And then, at some point around the mid-noughties, marble was everywhere. Could the same be happening to terrazzo?

Curves - they are organic, playful, comforting and sensual - what's not to like? The architects at Toronto-based Partisans certainly agree, and they are masters at applying curves in their projects.
