Villa Rijpwetering is all about relaxed Dutch living at its elegant best with the lavish house opening up towards the water views outside thanks to the large glass façade. An expansive wooden deck and series of terraces connect the home with the boat docks and the dwelling seems to gently float above the water when viewed from a distance.
It is cast-in-place concrete and artisanal bricks that give the interior a modern industrial appeal even as they usher in ample textural beauty. With a wood screen at the front that hides the parking and entrance there is plenty of contrast at every turn.
Crafted using steel concrete wood and stone balance is the key element of design here in every sense of the word. One sees the open living areas flow into the luxurious terrace outside which overlooks the Jacuzzi and the vast green spaces beyond.
Jaw-dropping cantilevered structures are also pretty popular but this beautiful and cheerful home in designed by Randy Bens Architect went down the path of white brick glass and dark cedar. It is a combination that is distinctive exceptional and definitely brings the ‘wow factor’ to a contemporary space.
Another mega project from Arquitectonica and Related Group that is set to be completed in 2019 One Brickell takes luxury living in Miami to a whole new level with three giant towers that will contain 1400 residential units and 249 hotel units! Nestled on the bank of the Miami River and in the heart of downtown Miami this trio of towers is like a mini-city in itself offering you everything one could dream of. Residents at these futuristic towers will have access to everything ranging from private beach frontage to 24-hour concierge services and access to the very best that Miami has to offer.
It is hard to imagine that a home as splendid and extravagant as the in Texas was a dark and dingy structure from the 1980s until recently. It was only after its new owners turned to Miró Rivera Architects that the true potential of this fabulous Texas home and the lot on which it sits were fully realized.
These generous outdoor spaces extend the indoor living area and create an opportunity for al fresco dining and living even while promising complete privacy. The presence of a hot tub that overlooks the waterways and minimal seating add to the opulence of the setting.
