Although the idea does not sound very friendly at the beginning, the things will immediately change if you happen to meet Japanese architect Takaaki Kawabat,  a senior associate at Janson Goldstein in New York. Growing up in a one-room farmhouse on the island of Ishikawa must have produced a huge influence on Takaaki’s interior design philosophy. The kitchen, the living room, two sleeping areas and even a large dressing area were built into the architecture of a 1,100-square-foot log cabin in Garrison, New York. Talented architect, Takaaki ended up doing much of the work himself on weekends with help from family and friends—”my father came from Japan to put up the siding with me, and my mother helped restore the chimney; we camped out on the property and neighbors brought us lunch.” Therefore, no need to worry if you have only one room to share with family and friends!

The entrance, featuring a custom-made backlit plasterboard wall, leads to the large living area.

Designed by Marco Piva, the plasterboard has been studied as opposed to the window, an artificial back-lit in contrast with a natural light source. The living area, very spacious and with access to both terraces, is designed to receive guests or relaxing with the family. The simple and functional design achieves a sophisticated and elegant finish, rich in details that emphasize the exclusivity of the overall project. Working closely with the client, the design team undertook a careful chromatic research, selecting contemporary but not invasive colors that would not lose appeal over time. An important element are the two hanging lamps, characterized by a descent of blown glass spheres in which is positioned the light source.

Just five bedrooms, this 10,000 living space has generous common areas. A large and open living, dining, and kitchen space spills onto an expansive terrace with outdoor covered eating and lounging areas with television, open air lounging and sunbathing by the generous infinity edge pool. All of this looking over the sunset views of the open Pacific ocean.  Casa Praia has 4 ocean view bedrooms with an additional 5th garden view bedroom.

New Post has been published on http://www.designrulz.com/design/2014/07/125946/Black And White Mix In Luxurious Penthouse by Ando StudioAre you ready to strip away the color? Then, you’ve come to the right place. Realized by Ando Studio, the rendering project below features a large open space that incorporates both living and dining areas. A clean, pure aesthetic dominates the interior that feels airy and organized. The designer started with a palette of white walls, creating a perfect background for the future black pieces: sofa, book shelves, pillows and chairs. If you are a big fan of such combinations, introduce grey and silver glittering now and there in order to moderate the heavy atmosphere and to add a pitch of glam. To keep things sophisticated, decorate with big size vases, sculptures, chandeliers and candle sticks. Last, but not least, continue the set-up outside, on a lovely terrace overlooking the entire city. Try the combination at home if you feel inspired, but pay attention not to fall into an impersonal territory!

The French have a good phrase: raison d’etre, or reason for existence. In the case of the new Benetti Classic Supreme 132, I discovered it on the main deck as I wandered. The Classic Supreme 132 is the newest of the Benetti Class yachts, which range from 93 to 145 feet (28 to 44 meters). The Class series is intended as a semi-production motoryacht that draws heavily on the DNA from the Benetti Customs and, I have to admit, she is both classic and supreme.

The interior was designed in collaboration with François Zuretti. The furnishings in the Petrus II are of natural oak and wenge, enriched with handmade leather inserts. One of the unique features in yacht are the diamond shaped panels in ivory colored natural leather in the owner’s and the VIP cabins, that rise from behind the head of the berths and continue up to the ceiling. As always the Benetti’s interiors are completely customizable.

Although the items may not be on the market at the moment, they can still inspire us to create something exciting. The space looks like a tube animated by various lighting objects, textures and volumes. Amazed by the fluorescence atmosphere, the visitors experience various combinations of colors and lights in a cafe that incite all the senses. The bar is a long counter top supervised by a shining disco ball, facing an alignment of white leather sofas. Blue, violet, red and pink were used to make the space dynamic and appealing for the teenagers. Although futuristic design may sometimes feel cold, there are theoreticians that find emotion in electromagnetic radiations, high-tech accessories and video games setups. If you are one of them, enjoy the project below!

New Post has been published on http://www.designrulz.com/design/2014/07/sustainable-impressive-looking-home-dune-villa-bergen/Sustainable and Impressive Looking Home: Dune Villa, BergenIn 2011 Bloem and Lemstra Architects won a competition for the design of a new villa in the dunes of Bergen aan Zee, a small town at the Dutch coast approximately 1 hour driving from Amsterdam.  We recently received some photos of this project, a contemporary house defined by an optimum indoor-outdoor connection. Here is the official description from the project developer: “On the ground floor a direct connection between the living room and the garden and the lounge area on the floor above exploits the great view at the dunes and the sea. A big void, with a tree in the middle, generates a connection between these two areas. Several terraces surround the villa to make sure the occupants can enjoy the sun during the morning, afternoon and evening. Natural stone walls arise from the dune valley and shape the guest residence in the basement. This part of the house, designed for friends and visitors, has its own charm and literally forms the foundation of the villa. The use of natural rocks emphasizes the idea of a base that evolves out of the hilly dunes. Due to the white plaster walls, the wooden shutters, the natural stone walls and the indoor three, the luxury villa gets an atmosphere alike an Ibiza residence.
