Holiday Home Inspiration: White Villa at PGA Catalunya Resort

The luxurious building is actually a part of PGA Catalunya, a resort located close to Barcelona, Spain, and spread over 300 hectares. Developed by Catalan architects Damian and Francisco Ribas, this particular residence is structured on two levels. Large sliding glass doors open the living and dining spaces on the bottom floor towards the pool, also providing a connection with the expansive terraces and private gardens outside. A double-height vaulted ceiling floods the living space with natural light and a contemporary kitchen with a separate utility room makes it easier for the guests to mimic their life at home. The master bedrooms on the second level features large bathrooms and separate dressing areas with direct terrace access. A children’s play area is also integrated in the house plan.

Picturesque Rural Villa Outside Aspen

Project designed by architects Lipkin Warner Planning and Design Associates and located just seven miles outside Aspen, Colorado. The owners had specific goals: a warm, modern, luxurious ranch house with lots of entertaining areas, a horse barn and artist studio, capturing views of all four ski areas. Exteriors are of Pennsylvania lilac block cut stone, metal and pressure treated spruce. The interior is an open floor plan with Colorado sandstone and reclaimed Bavarian oak floors, acoustically designed wood ceilings and alder and wenge walls and built-ins, giving warmth to a modern design. The owner artists’ hand is reflected in custom furniture and wrap around fireplaces with mantles of glass, wood and steel provided by Andi-Le.

Dark Skinned Light-Flooded Lake House in Nevada

Ever thought about building a home dark on the outside and filled with light on the inside? The Lake House is a perfect example of how these two elements can be successfully joined to shape a fantastic contemporary residential building. Designed by San Francisco-based Mark Dziewulski Architects, the home was initially called the Cliff House, but the current owners refers to it as “The Lake House”. The 808 m² home is made out of three main building materials: concrete, steel and glass. It took four years to complete this stunning residence and the architects designed the five stories in such a manner that the light-flooded interior spaces get the best views from the nearby Lake Tahoe. The four bedroom, four bathroom home, resting on a half acre property benefits from exciting moments spent by the private pier. Exceptional details like the glass elevator and stairwell make the home more than a comfortable collection of modern spaces – they transform it into a breathtaking contemporary home. Located in Incline Village, Crystal Bay, Nevada, the luxurious waterfront home is offered at $43 million, but its architectural and design details offer inspiration for free.

Villa Ronde

‘Villa Ronde’ by Tokyo- and Paris-based design practice Ciel Rouge creation (Henri Gueydan, Fumiko Kaneko) is a circular residence with a private museum on a rocky coast by the sea in japan. Directly engaging with the natural elements of the site, the design features a porous facade that allows the interior to experience the wind and natural light as well as provide panoramic views of the surrounding landscape.

Partially plugged into the topography of the land, the circular form was driven by the presence of a dominant northern wind, resulting in an angle-less structure that will provide the least amount of resistance on the site. The underground portion of the residence benefits from thermal exchange, facilitating passive operations in providing an ideal microclimate within. Cross ventilation is achieved through an inner garden that serves as a convection system in attracting fresh air. A 40cm thick roof garden, which hosts 500 m2 of solar panels, serves as natural insulation in addition to blurring the physical boundary between architecture and landscape.

Circumscribing a central courtyard, the interior programs are arranged as a ‘wandering place’ with rooms connected freely in a fluid manner. Small and large apertures that puncture the facade provide views of the water, rendering the house as a ‘panoramic tower’ reminiscent of old fortresses by the sea. As a result, every room holds an intimate relationship with the site, utilizing the landscape as a constant backdrop to the atmosphere of the interior.
