The house is situated on 3.5 acres, overlooking Oak Pass. The house itself measures 8000 square feet (743 square meters), though its hidden design makes it appear smaller. The property is home to more than 130 oak trees, which were an integral part of designing the home. Not only did the architect and homeowners want a space that could easily look out upon this spectacular private forest, but they wanted an exterior that itself did not draw attention away from the beautiful natural surroundings.

An Upside Down House in the Woods Flips the Architectural Script

Surrounded by Oak Trees, this Oak Pass house is truly modern and ultra sleek.

The first space is bright cheerful but not too busy. Colorful furnishings live in the same color family, giving a unified feeling to the living area, while a few contrasting elements add interest. A simple home office with extremely sleek furnishing options is truly a retreat for a creative - yet industrious - occupant while a bit of whimsy in the way of nautical elements and round, bubbly light fixtures keep the space warm and welcoming.

In order to make the home comfortable as well as beautiful, it was constructed with two main areas: one that mimics a more traditional house with solid walls and foundations and another that more closely resembles the Farnsworth aesthetic. In the front pavilion, an elevated, glass enclosed patio is made of sliding doors that can open for ventilation and columns that keep the building up off the ground and allow water to flow underneath.

The main living area and open kitchen are a welcoming introduction to the home. A stunning butter yellow sofa is just about as cozy looking as any couch with lots of space to stretch out for a long nap. The bright pop of color certainly stands out but it lives in a subdued hue that isn't garish. And of course, regular visitors to this blog know how timeless and stylish an exposed brick accent wall can be.

In the living room, we are immediately struck by the accent wall where the television hangs. It is a constant struggle as a designer to find places for things like a television that are so necessary (for many people) but not always so beautiful. Here, the TV is mounted to a marble wall and flanked by wood accents and growing moss. Of course, in this visualization, the reality of this construction is a bit hard to realize but the visual impact is certainly gorgeous.

Sophisticated Kiev Home Makes Creative Use of Natural Materials

This sophisticated home in Kiev uses marble, wood, and indoor plants to create a beautiful atmosphere and sleek look.

At 1424 square feet (132 square meters), this apartment presents a unique solution to a ceiling problem, in which there was a height difference that threw off the interior's aesthetics. To correct, the ceiling in the living area as given a beveled design, in addition to a sloping ceiling shape. This created a space that looked - and felt - longer and wider. Designed by Huang Yi Feng and Li Yuzhi, this apartment is located in the Taichung area of Taiwan and features a modern design, including a living room, dining room, kitchen, guest suite with bathroom, study, and master bedroom with bathroom.

The next home we are featuring is certainly a bit more spacious, but when you consider that these 60 square meters (645 square feet) are home to not one, not two, but three children and their parents, it starts to look a little more, well, little. Luckily, designer Anastsasiya Kashira is skilled and has used the idea of multipurpose spaces to create a home that works for this particular family. This is largely accomplished in the children's room. Two year old twins and a 10-year-old girl share the room, which is divided with  curtains. This way, the children can have their privacy while still sharing their play space in the center of the room.

As with many beachfront neighborhoods, the architects were forced to deal with the reality of many homes packed closely together as well as clients who want to feel like they have their own private ocean. By including tall walls that separate the house from its neighbors but still have gaps and glimpses, inside the home can really feel like its own private island.

The second home we are featuring has its similarities to the urban palace, also creating a distinct comfort and luxurious peace even within the bustle of a big city. The team has subscribed here to the idea that the more white and blank space they leave in the initial design, the better able a homeowner is to add their own ideas, whether that means art, color, or furniture.

The first project is a restoration of a hotel. By using FIBROTRANS concrete, designer Albert Abutov was able to create a unique separation between the main space of the room and the bathroom. The material allows sunlight to pass through into the bathroom during the day and lighting from the bathroom to illuminate the bedroom at night. These images give you a sense of how warm and almost otherworldly this material can be.

The first home is a four bedroom space in Taipei that measures 2562 square feet (238 square meters). The two story home is quite spacious and manages to incorporate both sleek, Asian-inspired design and a bit of playful whimsy. This tongue-in-cheek style is immediately evident in the living room where, in lieu of a coffee table, we find a few hewn tree trunks on a grassy area rug, accompanied by a lemon-esque love seat. It's the perfect place for children of any age to relax.

The main living area is the "day" area of the apartment, proving space for entertaining, relaxing, cooking, and eating. The design here is the height of simplicity, even going so far as to avoid hanging anything on the walls. Instead, art is propped up on the ground and the television is hidden in a custom wood cabinet. The sofas are arranged around the entrance to the home, making the flow from visitor to guest seamless.
