5 Smart Apartment Designs That Maximize Space

One of the key design solutions for a well-designed tiny apartment is multifunctional spaces. Assigning several functions to an area minimizes wasted space and maximizes every inch of space. Hiding unused components also declutters the area, making it appear larger than it looks. These are just some of the clever solutions designers implement to create beautiful and efficient interiors. Below are seven well-designed tiny apartments that will capture your interest.   1. 24 in 1 Transformer Apartment Designed by: Architect Gary Chang Area: 24 sqm / 258 sq. ft. The concept for the apartment is a time-based design that uses shared space one function at a time. Several movable walls hide everything out of sight, decluttering the space. Everything slides against the wall to open up center space. By layering several movable walls, the apartment has abundant storage space hidden within the wall. Shifting the center wall panel to the center allows access to the hidden bathtub, which also has a

Stunning Living Paintings by Alexa Meade

Painters usually project what they see in a canvas. They create art by painting and interpreting what they see. There are some who create realistic paintings and others who create abstract paintings. Each artist has his or her own preference for how they want to express their art. One artist I've found is doing something unique compared to what most painters do.

Unique Interiors - Bathrooms

Bathroom designs with pocket gardens and skylights have always fascinated me. The merging of interior and exterior spaces gives an open, relaxing, and bright ambiance from these spaces. Even though people spend less time in these rooms, the design of these spaces is just as important as any other space in the house. We usually use this space at the start of the day and our mood during these hours will affect how the rest of the day will turn out.  Image Source:  http://multimedianimasi.blogspot.com

Small Apartment Transformer

The common problem of urban centers is the scarcity of space. Most people live in tiny apartments due to the expensive cost. Gary Chang An Architect from Hong Kong has designed his apartment in such a way that it will revolutionize how we can maximize small spaces.

Modern Tree Houses

Some of the most interesting designs I've seen are the ones that veer away from the norm. They create unique designs by creating unusual solutions. Treehouses are one of the interesting types of buildings we need to explore. Green architecture is gaining popularity with the public. Building a structure around a tree instead of cutting it down is becoming common. It is one-way architects can help preserve the environment.

Exceptional Digitat Art

Art is the expression of a person's emotion through the medium that person chooses. It may be through music, literature, photography, oil in the canvass, or other means. The medium is only the artist's instrument, which allows him or her to share his creative thoughts with others. Technology has provided us with more tools to express ourselves. I have always been a visual person, and most of the art that I appreciate is visual. Most of the excellent artists that I know can create works of art in whatever medium they provide.

Amazing Future Homes

I was browsing through Forbes for some interesting article about investments and found this interesting article about future homes. This was the last place I thought I could find architecture and design related articles but the slides really caught my interest. Tornado-Proof Home Designed by Ted Givens of 10Design

Glass House

Every culture has their limits when it comes to the privacy of their home. In some places people don't rely on fence to secure their home and privacy from prying eyes. In other areas people put up tall concrete walls which are sometime even taller than the house. A lot of circumstances are considered which determines how open people are with their homes. In my country most people usually put up fences around their houses to prevent others from entering the premises of their home. It also serves as a way for them to prevent others from seeing what happens inside the premises. Since the majority of the homes here have small lots, almost all homes maximize the lot for their home which in turn lessens the easement between the house and the road. Designed By Architect Philip Johnson I always wanted to live in a house which has a lot of glass. I've made a lot of conceptual designs but most of these designs are too expensive and are inapplicable here in the Philippines. Asi

Incredible animation of Superman Vs Hulk

A while ago I was browsing Youtube for a trailer of the new superman movie. I bumped into an animation created by  mhabjan . I watched the entire animation, and I was very impressed by its quality.  I assumed the animation was done by a team of 3d artists. It was only when I read the description that I discovered that mhabjan  was the only one working on this project. This has made it even more impressive. It took him about eight months to finish the animation. It must have taken him a great deal of patience to accomplish this feat. You can visit his channel here: http://www.youtube.com/user/mhabjan

Extreme Cantilever Homes

Every time I see an extreme home I always wonder why architects go out of their way to achieve these feats. It must have taken guts on the part of the client to go with the daring designs of the architect.  I usually get inspired looking through their designs. Designed by  Natkevicus   Lately I've been fascinated with houses designed to have extreme cantilevers. I've browsed through a lot of houses with extreme cantilevers and each one of these have their own approach on solving the long spans of their cantilever.
