#1. The most popular Freshome post in August was a fascinating tropical island yacht project envisioned by the UK based company Yacht Island Designs. The floating tropical island will be made out of steel and will measure 90 meters in length, plenty of room to build a luscious and luxurious environment that would sail away in the sunset.
#2. Laranjeiras Residence was designed by Fernanda Marques Arquitetos Associados and is a fascinating 10,225 square foot summer retreat located in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. According to the architects, wood was used as a way to protect it from the sea air and make it more familiar-looking amid the green Mata Atlântica. The designers don’t say anything about the stunning visual effect this approach had on the overall design, though.
#3. Stunning by design, the Armada House compresses a world of possibilities in its fascinating architecture. Created by award-winning Keith Baker Design, the residence located in Victoria, BC, Canada, displays an important feature of construction: the necessary relationship and collaboration between the designer and the client. The Canadian designer created a home where volumes intersect and shapes unite to form a specific design, dreamed by the owner and implemented by the architect.
#4. Here is a home showcasing a faultless modern design. Dinesh Mills Bungalow comes from atelier dnD and is located just outside the city of Vadodara, India. The exterior is absolutely fascinating, as the house seems to float on a spectacular pool, enriched with a lovely decorating fountain.
#5. We’ve seen quite a few works of ingenious architecture, enough to state this is one of them. Keret House is a project envisioned by Jakub Szczęsny of Centrala, soon to be developed in a narrow void between the buildings on 22 Chłodna Street and 74 Żelazna Street in the district of Wola, Poland. Keret House is said to have an interior that will vary between 122 centimeters and 72 centimeters, making it an extremely narrow crib.
#6. Welcome to an apartment that inspires joyful living. Invaded by color, this place features so many beautiful details that we found it hard not to enjoy each and every photo in detail. Having a privileged location in the attic of a downtown building, this apartment in Madrid was organized and decorated to accommodate a couple in a bright, sophisticated and refreshing environment. The author of this excellent makeover was the architect Charlie Diaz, who opted for a loft that is both aesthetic and fun.
#7. The Residence Zanzibar was designed by design firm HBA / Hirsch Bedner Associates and is a fascinating resort located on a remote corner of the island of Zanzibar. According to the architects, all pieces of furniture at The Residence Zanzibar are a mix of cultures reflecting the various influences in Zanzibar’s history.
