I think it should be exciting to live in an ancient tower. The architects from De Matos Ryan presented such unusual project. The Round Tower is an ancient tower in England, which was reconstructed and turned to contemporary family residence. An underground extension, designed around a fully glazed courtyard, was added to the tower where an open living room, pool and terrace are situated. There is also a guest house and garage there. The main living areas are equipped in the tower, which became a modern dwelling with four bedrooms. The roof of the tower features a viewing platform for relaxation, with a magnificent view of the surroundings where you can enjoy privacy.
This original project was realized in Copenhagen, Denmark by PLOT. Despite the problem of a polluted site the architects found an original decision. They covered the entire site with a wooden deck (1600m2), so it wasnt necessary to clean the plot and some money for project was saved. And even more, the building looks unusual and really amazing due to wooden curves. Maritime Youth House combines two different purposes. Its a sail club and a youth house at the same time. Thats why the places where the deck rises, are designed for boat storage underneath and become an exciting play areas for the kids. The common room, where most of the daily activities take place, youll find in the front house, the workshop and storage are located in the back corner building.
Egg House is a mobile home on wheels that can be parked anywhere. The basis of the structure is a bamboo carcass, which is covered with bags of grass seeds. They protect the dwelling from different weather conditions. Moreover, these bags are able to ensure good sound insulation. The owner of Egg House, a young architect from Beijing, doesnt care that his house can accommodate only one bed, 2 bedside tables, lamps with solar batteries and water tank. He is a creative person and appreciates time that he can spend at work or with friends. For him, this lodge is a real paradise. At that he has spent only $1000. Via
