View Lake Sales Center by One Cu Interior Design Lab

Henry David Thoreau once praised Walden Lake as a teardrop of the God, and hence evoked numerous people’s yearning for lakeside living. Everyone has a lake in their mind, which brings them serenity, poetry and purity in the bustling city.

Lakeside living, ideal life
Living beside lake is amazing, which enables people to get close to nature and enjoy a peaceful life. As embracing the first light of the sun in the morning and overlooking the rippling waterscape, the mood is refreshed.
The project is a residential development sales center in Xi’an, China. With Yanming Lake on the north side, it enjoys favorable site conditions. In addition, it’s situated at the transitional zone between the densely populated area and the outskirts, providing a perfect place for conceiving ideal lifestyles for urban elites.

Mini Loft with a View

Belgian architecture studio DMOA is dishing out inspiration for small apartment dwellers through the 164-square-foot penthouse studio above their new five-story office building in Leuven, Belgium. The apartment features an open-floor “mini loft” layout with a terrace that overlooks the city. DMOA partnered with Belgian furniture brand Ethnicraft to furnish the apartment with space-saving ideas that could be implemented into any small living area.

The entrance is at the top of a staircase that leads through the all-concrete office building. To the right is a living area with a modular Ethnicraft N701 sofa, table, chair, and shelving unit. Careful placement of modular furniture throughout the apartment is key to keeping the studio light and spacious and allows for easy reconfigurations.

Pacific View Point House by Luigi Rosselli

Docked into the steep rocky strata of the Pacific Ocean coast, this home in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs is a place for contemplation; a place to observe and absorb the shimmer of the water, each fold and fall of the waves, the serene passage of cetaceans and cumulus, the infinite permutations of textures and hues that form a welcome diversion from our urban and global concerns.

Arranged in an offset layered composition, the geometry of the main frontage reflects the complexity of the front boundary line, both of which are generated by the irregular geology of the site. The angles of each level of the house are precisely positioned to optimise the views for the occupants whilst maintaining neighbourly harmony by ensuring the lines of sight for the adjacent residents are not impacted.
