What can be better than to have a house on the seashore enjoying beautiful sunrises and sunsets and seeing the waves running to the shore? Thomas Phifer + Partners presented the project of the beach house in Long Island. It has very interesting architectural concept. The roof is curved and undulating as the waves in the sea. So this house perfectly matches the surrounding sceneries. The decor and exterior design is kept minimalistic in order to emphasize the home’s shapeliness. The space is rather subtle. Its free flowing nature embraces the landscape. As the architects say, it is a house with calligraphic flourish, writ lightly yet vibrantly in the sand.

This house wasn’t designed... it was sculptured. The Dancing Living House was designed by Junichi Sampei of A.L.X. in Yokohama, Japan. It was a request of a married couple the passion of which is dancing. The house perfectly combined the dancing studio with the living space. This three-storied reinforced concrete building is private and open to the sky thanks to the big glass corner that invites a lot off sunlight inside. You can even park a car under it due to a concave mass of the house situated on the street side. White styled futuristic exterior enhances the dynamic mood and brings in fresh energies all day long.
