The lower concrete zone of the sky-high wall is made out of a patterned mold to separate it from the ground an create an intense color contrast. The raw wood panels match perfectly the texture of the dark colored render and the projecting metal slices around the window openings.

An utterly stunning creation: working & living space combined together in a hybrid building with a fully traditional front facade, a contemporary nature-inspired backyard and an emerging underground level.

Unusual design combining the typical house proportions with super modern & minimal features on its patterned facade concept as well as on the monolithic interior. The designers have cleverly mixed the white colored interior of the windows’ frames with dark colored parts on the outside to create a highlighted pattern over the window opening slots.

Plus One Berlin hotel room by Spamroom

check @ freshome | Plus One Berlin hotel room by Spamroom

The kitchenette/storage room is made of revamped panel doors and old parquet floor boards, alongside new plywood pieces, as we find out from Designboom. The shape and orientation changes according to traveler’s needs, making it easy to use and occupying as much space as possible. This multi-functional unit can also be used for storing clothes and its undecided composition is reminiscent of today’s creative displays of old and new materials.

The above residence has an amazing roadside shot due to the sophisticated styling of its facade. The concrete fence, the garage entrance, the giant pebbles across the polycarbonate panels, are all designed in a subtle but functional way.

The hand crafted wall styles balance the formality of the space basically driven by the strict shapes of the minimal furniture, the kitchen’s cupboards and the additional wooden or plasterboard creations behind the bed or at the ceilings. The coatings has been applied in a way to originally express roughness and incompleteness.

The earthy tone of the facade makes a nice subtle contrast with the odd & full black window frames that allow for the shutter’s layer to be on the same surface level with the facade’s wall. The square shaped glazed surfaces inside, on a neat concrete background feel like membranes. Interesting ceiling recessed lights and an awesome plain railing.

A really interesting project with many points of interest for someone passionate with design. The facade at first looks awkward but then you realize the expression of its dynamic, natural and balanced character. The garage lies in the ground level behind an extraordinary door mesh system, a giant concrete column runs up high to the last floor while the glazed surfaces slightly subside to leave space for some green points. The stairway and the floor of the hallway is made of a metallic mesh and is painted black to fit in this serious old school modernism environment. The interior is just another surprise..

Several interesting highlights from the classy mid century modern furniture and fireplace to the wall-to-wall custom created cover patterns. Skylight windows separate walls from the ceiling while the floor-to-ceiling glazed sides highlight the two layer roof plate standing out as the main volume.
