You have to admit this is an original why to find out what time it is. Aside from showcasing a collapsing digital clock, this Osaka water fountain displays plenty of other patterns (some of them quite artistic), made up of a variety of shapes.

Offering expansive 360 degree views of Manhattan, the Hudson River and the Statue of Liberty, the penthouse also features 14 foot ceilings in a successful attempt to match the grandeur of the panoramic view.
#4. We are extremely proud to see this project that was completed in Timisoara, Romania (aka the city where most of the Freshome team is located) on number 4 in the monthly Freshome “most popular posts” list. The photos below were taken in the X3 offices, an international web design company. The people responsible with the interior design were Stefan Lazar si Alexandra Avram from Ezzo. The X3 office in Timisoara has a total area of 250 square meters, two levels and a design that is fresh and rewarding in itself.
#5. The collaboration between German architectural studios Karl Dreer and Bembé Dellinger Architects gave birth to this amazing residence that borrows its name from the natural acrylic stone used in its construction. The residence located in Bavaria, Germany, very close to the Ammersee Lake and overlooks the green forests of Upper Bavaria displaying a contemporary architecture spread over 395 square meters on a 1,200 square meters property.

#7. Pitsou Kedem Architect completed a home restoration above the harbor in Old Jaffa, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel. One could easily resemble its exterior with a medieval fortress, as inspired by its centuries-old facade. But the similarities stop there. When redesigning this home, the architects kept its mysterious stone exterior, but combined it with state of the art modern details. Just click the photo below for more.
#8. We found this Scandinavian apartment that is quite different from the Swedish cribs we usually publish. With a total living area of 185 square meters, consisting of four rooms plus kitchen, you could say this crib is addressed to those used to an opulent style. And did you notice the silver stag?
#9. With a total area of 98 square meters and a beautiful terrace, this two bedroom apartment found on Oskar-Makleri displays quite a few inspiring details. The most spectacular part of this crib is the attic, where a bedroom, bathroom and roof terrace are located. Exposed beams enrich the design of the upper duplex level, creating a feeling of warmth.
