Avalon is our personal favorite on the list both for its sheer simplicity and the way that it makes green homes an affordable concept. Timber from sustainable forests and metal sheets fashion its exterior even as the green roof above stands out visually during the daytime. Nestled on lovely Avalon Beach and promising wonderful ocean views this modular unit was crafted by ArchiBlox and provides a delightful living space of 106 square meters.
From the practical we move on to the exceptional as we step into the mesmerizing in Ostional Costa Rica. This captivating retreat is green in more ways than one as even the amazing natural forests that surround it leave anyone who stays here spellbound. Developed by Kalia this three-bedroom villa can be rented for around $600/night. A bargain considering all you get at this exotic hideaway.
Masterfully designed by Specht Harpman Architects the rooftop garden and hangout is a perfect idea for those looking for something more than just a simple green roof. Both practical and planet-friendly the idea creates an urban oasis even in a concrete jungle!
This smart sustainable module was crafted by ArchiBlox using locally sourced wood milled from sustainable forests and metallic panels that protect the home from the harsh ocean wind. But it is the gorgeous green roof of the house that truly steals the show and gives it an inimitable and exciting look.
It is hard enough to design an ergonomic and aesthetic modern apartment in limited space but the task becomes trickier when you need to also incorporate a design studio within the limited confines. Add to this the need to transform it into a safe and kid-friendly setting that a six-year old can also enjoy and you have the Brandburg Home and Studio in Poznan.
Nestled in a tranquil neighborhood of London there was plenty of space on offer for Scenario Architecture to give the classic home a smart makeover that connects the interior with the gorgeous green garden outside.
When thinking of a quick home renovation or a makeover the bathroom is not a space that springs to the top of our wish list. That spot is often reserved for the kitchen or the bedroom. Get past those two and you tend to focus on the living room or even the dining area before you work your way towards the kitchen.
