Half of this floating house by +31 Architects is submerged below the waterline of Amsterdam’s river Amstel, while the other opens out to a buoyant terrace. Watervilla Weesperzijde is connected to the quay by a wooden bridge, which flexes as the residence rises and falls with the tide. Sliding glass doors added to the lounge and kitchen maximize views of the river. They also provide access to a floating terrace, which is moored alongside the villa and spans the length of the living space. Floating steps descend into the windowless basement, where a pair of bedrooms and bathrooms and a small lounge are located. The quay-facing side of the structure is sealed with perforated aluminum sheeting that displays the house’s number and are illuminated at night by a panel of blue.

Italian designer Daniele Cristiano has created a multipurpose storage unit that is shaped to look like a vintage ammunition chest. Its name Calibro is derived from the word calibre, which refers to the internal diameter or bore of a gun barrel. The long, low sideboard has spaces cut out from the center and at each end for storage. Three orange leather belt straps wrap around the ends of the chest, which are designed to look like the buckles found on old wooden ammunition trunks that were used in the First World War. It can be used as a sideboard, a TV stand or as a table. Calibro can be a media unit, a storage bench or a sideboard for any space you want, and simple lines and strong contrasts between materials give it a character.
What used to be the family’s campsite on Lake Superior in Wisconsin is now a fascinating family retreat.

Its unusual shape is framed by a storage building and woodshed made of aging cedar. Upstairs, a master suite, two bunk rooms and an additional guest room provide plenty of space for the family and their guests. Sheltering the front entrance, a cantilevered screen porch elongates the upper floor and extends the views to the lake. Everything in the home invites you to enjoy the surroundings; its cozy, inviting atmosphere includes an indoor terrace and a fireplace.

Zoomorphic designs are a cool way to make a statement and draw attention, and Markus Oder of Leanter considered it when creating this Giffy lamp. The idea for the Giffy Table Lamp came to Markus after looking at a photo of giraffes standing next to Acacia trees surrounded by the colors of the sunset on the Savannah in Central Africa. Standing 45Hx17xWx34Lcm the body is made out of 18mm thick birch plywood so as to bring a little bit of nature into the lamp. The beautiful pattern on a giraffe’s body has been reinterpreted as voids within the birch plywood and the 1.5m long color matched fabric covered chord casually winds through it. A simple on/off toggle is positioned on the chord where it would meet a tabletop.
When buro5 was to renovate this 527 sq ft in Moscow, Russia, the strategy included taking the existing defining elements and integrating them in the new design in a natural fashion. The apartment features exposed pipes and tubes, which the designers chose to highlight by adding even more such elements instead of trying to conceal them, and so they saved space. The mezzanine area functions as a workspace. A metal and wood staircase offers access to a small platform where a desk with a simple industrial design can be found. Black and red are the two main accent colors used in the new interior design. Better organization and cool space-saving solutions made this home much more spacious and trendy.
