Some more cute houses like Pretty pink
1. The 2+ Weekend House
Growing urban population and soaring real-estate prices have transformed the basic structure of modern homes in a huge way. Container houses and mobile homes have replaced spacious city homes, squeezing dwellers into smaller spaces. However, designer Jure Kotnik Arhitekt has come up with a new container house, named the 2+ Weekend House, which will change your mindset about compact homes.
The 2+ Weekend House is a compact and functional housing unit that can prove more than handy in emergencies. Moreover, you can move the house from one place to another.
2. House of Convexities
Just as it is named, the House of Convexities uses a lot of curves as the main part of its shape, both in its exterior and interior. Even its ceilings are part of the convexities. The inspiration for this design is from the rich cultural experience of Flamenco, the passionate rhythmical Spanish music, as well as its elaborate dance.
Furthermore, the curves in this poetic house serve to capture and portray the wonderful experience of Flamenco. Moreover, he bows and twists in the walls and ceilings give vibes similar to the feeling of watching those lovely ladies twirl their skirts and bodies. In addition, one of the picturesque aspects of this house is the waving effect of the lights and shadows as they move against the narrowly corrugated lines on the ceiling.
The emphasis on lights and shadows is used throughout the house, effectively augmenting the beauty it already derives from it beautiful curves. However, the architect of the House of Convexities, Antonio Cardillo, a lover of Flamenco sought to translate the sounds and dynamics of Flamenco into a structure and he succeeded in replicating the feeling of grace by artfully controlling the pattern of his convexities.
The house is located in an open range area near Barcelona, where it stands out in high contrast to its surroundings. But this choice of location is probably meant to ensure that no exterior shadows are cast on the building, thereby ensuring that it receives full sunlight to display its interior shadow effect.
3. Pump It Up House
You know what I hate most about camping? Not having the comforts of a house! Thankfully Italian designers Elio Ravà and Michela De Licio had a concept all planned up for an inflatable “emergency house” that ought to be good enough for people like me. Submitted at a design competition, their Pump It Up House claims to do away with the concept of prefabrication in the installation of emergency set ups while maintaining maximum functionality as well as respectability for its inhabitants. The concept uses a mould/house made from waterproof cloth that can be carried to any location and filled with resin to achieve the pre-projected shape.
The resin filling ensures a stable, sturdy and crash-resistant durable structure while the rubber-boat partitions and semi rigid transparent plastic windows and doors on tight lock hinges make the house look and feel more “real”. So how does the Pump It Up House differ from other emergency houses and camp set ups? Well for starters the thing seems to cost a fortune. And secondly they makers claim that this design lets the inhabitants choose vibrant colors unlike traditional camp material which is often dull. I think it’s a great concept but I’m just wondering why would someone who can afford that much resin, need to live an emergency house anyway. Maybe it could be something like summer ski cottages or lake houses that the rich maintain!
4. Tiny tumbleweed house
The Tumble weed house represents Jay Shafer’s philosophy by dreaming big and building small. In fact, the tiny houses have an aim to reduce our impact on the environment by occupying lesser space. Moreover, the design of all these beautiful free-standing houses shows meticulous attention being given to light, warmth, energy efficiency and proportion.
5. Mut House
The only message resounding from Mut Architecture‘s Z House is “back to the hillside caves”. The Z house conceptualizes as a dwelling in the rocky outcrop of Brentwood, California. However, the entire house has the support of a hill and has absolutely no false walls or even pillars.
One makes house entrance through the kitchen where the countertop is at the same height as the playground. It house has separate living room, dining room, kids’ room and office space. The design ensures enough recreational aspects such as a pool, tennis court and a gym with a roof deck to offer panoramic view of the cityscape. Furthermore, all the features are accessible through exterior stairs embedded within the rocky façade of the house. The house also has wooden and rock floor patios which lend an aesthetic appeal to the overall structure.

No other tree house in the entire world could be as beautiful as this one designed by Baumraum, a group of modern tree house makers. However, the group is popular for their extreme creativity to design complex tree houses that are modern, independent and completely sustainable. They constantly motivate people to create their own tree houses. Of course, the ones in which you can live.

Australia’s desert house designed by Undercurrent is a beautiful example of how trees can be a source of inspiration for modern day house making. The house has really unique and eye catching architecture where the roof panels in the shape of leaves give an entirely unique look and connects the house to the lush green plantation around it.
