Kalkin´s container houses!

7 Apr

You all know how i love unique design/architecture, when someone uses something normal and changes it to something brilliant! The architect Adam Kalkin, took an ordinary shipping container and made beautiful houses out of it.

“The beautiful home stretches the boundaries of modern design and is truly a work of art.  It was created by stacking a dozen orange “reclaimed” shipping containers in a T-shape while replacing some of the steel pannels with large windows looking out over the rocky peninsula to Blue Hill Bay. ”

It´s possible to rent the “containers” for $6000-$10000 a week. I just LOVE  the playfulness of the spaces.  It feels as if they really were houses and courtyard. There are so many details to catch your eye! Amazing!

Quotes and some of the pictures are from: Jetson Green , Waveavenue and from

The Tree Hotel!

18 Mar

Ever wanted to live in trees? Well in Harads, Sweden you do have the opportunity. Maybe not the “Tarzan style”,  but I wound not mind living in these really creative, unordinary “tree houses”. These rooms are created by the really unique architectural firm Tham & Videgård Arkitekter. The Treehotel is a hotel situated in a Boreal forest! Not only can you live in an amazing room, you have a wonderful view of a beautiful forest. It´s located at the far north of Sweden close to the Arctic circle!

“The functions included provide for a living for two people; a double bed, a small bath room, a living room and a roof terrace. Access to the cabin is by a rope bridge connected to the next tree.”

“To prevent birds colliding with the reflective glass, a transparent ultraviolet colour is laminated into the glass panes which are visible for birds only.”
