The images below show you a Fovea Architects creation, the Crooked House, which seems to be a regular Swiss home that just happens to have tumbled over. But the Crooked House isn’t upside down, and looking at it from a closer angle we discover its magic. We have at a two-story home that has an interestingly shaped second floor. The floor in question is inclined at a 40-degree angle but thanks to those huge windows the views upstairs are incredible. Those large windows will let in plenty of light during the day, while also guarding your privacy in the process. And we also assume the inside of this unusual home is filled with out-of-the-box furniture ideas, although the images that we currently have mostly focus on the exterior. Via Fovea Architects

I love the multiple uses of this piece of furniture from French manufacturer, Ligne Roset. You can see from the lady lying across that it can function as a day bed. The back on the opposite side would make for a nice sofa back upon which to sit upon. Then there is another seat back available on the other side. I think it is great that this sitting piece can offers so many features for its owner. The shade of red is not too overpowering and would complement many rooms. The simple lines and shapes are influences from its contemporary design.

Thinnest House In the World Needs Its Own Alley

Thinnest House In the World Needs Its Own Alley
I’ve seen my fair share of tiny apartments and smart furniture concepts conceived with small places in mind, but this following concept will blow your mind. We’re probably looking at the thinnest house ever conceived as it’s supposed to be built in a very narrow space, an alley if you will, between two other buildings. This particular apartment concept comes from Polish architect Jakub Szczesny and the 4-story alley home in the images below will offer you one bedroom, a lounge, a bathroom and a kitchen. In total we’re looking at a 40-feet long house, but it’s not the length that worries us but rather the width of the house. If you’re claustrophobic, then such a living arrangement is definitely out of the question. Via Daily Mail

New York based architect and designer Antonio Pio Saracino will be exhibiting his works at the Industry Gallery 1358 Florida Avenue, Washington DC from September 11 onwards till October. The highlight of the solo exhibition is no doubt the sculputuristic two large-scale models of triumphal arches which represent Italian immigration to North and South America. Saracino is not new experimentation and majority of his works stems from nature. This its no surprise that in the past has also worked wonders with materials like wood, metal, carbon fiber and synthetics which give an illusion of molecules, leaves, blossoms, and natural crystal formations.

Fireplaces no longer need to be archaic or traditional as these days the design continuum is flooded with modern contemporary incarnations. The Mauna Kea wall fireplace from Antrax instantly catches the eyes since it is the perfect blend of modern aesthetics and quality craftsmanship. Made of painted steel and glass, the Mauna Kea has been inspired from the Mauna Kea volcano in Hawaii and hence the dramatic firepit. The off the wall appeal (pardon the pun) of the Mauna Kea Fireplace will definitely appease the design connoisseurs who are always on a lookout for minimalist and trendy products.
