Casa Los Algarrobos. Perched on the moutains of Puembo, Ecuador, this 8,966-square-foot (833m2) house is yet another dream home to live in and have peace, food, and sex forever. The views, the materials, the distribution—I like it all. But it's that bedroom that took my heart away. I want to wake up there so badly.
I've always liked watching home improvement shows because the idea of rebuilding and renovating and creating with your own hands is so interesting to me. But this time lapse of an apartment being completely remodeled is better than any of those TV shows because it scrunches 120 days of work into one video.
A reader sent us this amazing animated short film he did. It tells the story of a suburban house put up for sale that one day decides to leave everything behind and hit the road to see the world. A quirky story with a heart-melting ending.
This is the House of the Infinite in Cádiz, Spain, designed by architect Alberto Campo Baeza. It looks like the sand actually solidified into the house itself. Simple straight lines, simple use of materials, large windows to watch ocean and make the breeze of the Bahía de Cádiz circulate through its interior. Just…
I want to move to any of these Villae Minimae—small villas—a collection of five isolated single-family houses perched in beautiful, hard to access places created by the Italian studio LAD. Then I want to become a Bond villain.
What's your wall doing right now—holding up your posters? Being leaned against by the bookshelf? What about storing the energy that powers all your kitchen appliances? New research into structural supercapacitors, which can withstand the stress and vibrations of bearing weight, could eventually inspire such an…
If you think small is beautiful, this is the perfect London home for you: thought to be the narrowest house in the entire capital, the Denmark Hill residence is on sale for a cool $750,000.
A home in Brentwood, New Hampshire, exploded today live on TV as an ABC News helicopter was flying over the area, filming as it was burning.
Some people move entire houses with cranes and trucks. Not the Mennonites. They just get 80 men inside a house, lift it off its original foundation, and move it into a new location. That's how Mennonites roll, folks.
What would you like in a house? A roof. Central air is nice. Some insulation probably. Maybe a fireplace if you like that. A yard for the kids with a white picket fence for your dreams. What about a freaking rideable scale train that goes completely around the entire property? Yeah, you know you want that. You want it…
If you're just strolling down the street or driving in your car, you'd never notice anything weird with this house in Raleigh, North Carolina. It looks like a house is supposed to look. You can imagine the family that lives there and the weekday dinners they throw for the neighborhood. You can imagine the kids in the…
Your eyes aren't deceiving you, this house was actually built upside down. The roof is on the floor, the Mini Cooper is parked in the sky and every fixture in the house is flipped around. But when the house is upside down it's actually right side up, if that makes any sense, because the interior is flipped too.
Here you have it! The perfect mix of two of the most iconic culture objects in the history of mankind: Lego, perhaps the most popular toy in the world, and The Simpsons, perhaps the most popular TV series of all time. And it's only $199. We got a ton of high resolution official images and a video:
The ÁPH80 prefab houses are made at a CNC (computer numerical control) mill factory located in Northern Spain. Designed by architect Camino Alonso—one of the owners at architectural firm Ábaton—is a compact 29.5 by 9.84 feet (9 by 3 meters) home that can get carried in a truck and deployed in 20 minutes.
Look, nobody said being a fashion idol was easy. Glamorous and well-compensated, definitely, but not easy. So surely there must be a better way of telling your manager that you need a few days vacay than by flat-lining all of Neo-Tokyo.
This has to be the cutest, most hilariously pointless PC case mod in history. I look at this and I just want to live in this cozy PC. In fact, my house looks pretty much like this—with a brick wall instead of circuits. And being in New York, it's about this size too.
There's something about secret doors that makes my spine tingle. The excitement! The mystery! But most secret doors are on the inside of a house—pull that book to reveal a hidden chamber! push that wall through!—this one, amazingly, is on the outside. It's so good you don't even see it.
Last night in Saltsjöbanan, Sweden, a young woman decided to try her hand at driving a train. It didn't end well: she careered off the end of line and straight into this house.
I love this house, built in Rotterdam by Dutch architectural firm Shift. What a wonderful and perfectly executed idea: to build an entire four-story-high house around a gigantic bookshelf that goes across all floors. It really looks beautiful—and useful too.
