Tormented Aksakova. Outdoor. November 28th , 2017.
Sitting next to an infinity edge pool, the spacious pool house contains an informal dining space along with a full-fledged kitchen and other private spaces. The dining area flows into the terraced garden and pool deck outside thanks the use of large, sliding glass doors that seamlessly connect the interior with the outdoors. As far as the green roof itself, architects had to request the city for special permissions as existing construction and water drainage norms simply did not permit for the lovely addition. A curved wooden roof also plays into the overall schematic and cleverly hides the project’s equipment and additional support even as it allows natural light to flood indoors. Additional rainwater simply drains away from the green roof and flows to a natural creek nearby while a large fireplace provides a warm and striking focal point as the sun sets and dark Texas nights take over.
A white picket fence is a timeless feature. Even when it loses its initial glistening white look, it will still feel just as charming as ever, giving the home’s outdoors a traditional appeal. For a classic suburban home, a white fence is almost a necessity! It has a gorgeous design that isn’t very pointed and looks super classy. Any home’s outdoors can benefit from contrasts and in the example of this house, the white picket fence and the house’s white exterior really bring out the surrounding greenery to life. For a house that already looks magical, a white picket fence is just a cherry on top. A soft pink color of the house is an amazing background for a white fence. A white picket fence creates an enchanting setting, surrounding a house and allowing the space within to be a mix of different colors, all connected by the beautiful fence.
A picket fence is very versatile. It’s an amazing addition to a rural, countryside home that is surrounded by nature and needs to stand out among the greens. The entrance onto your property has a lot of value. It can be cute and subtle, or it can be majestic and grandiose. Pair a big entryway with a classy white picket fence to create an unforgettable exterior that embodies glamour and elegance. Even when the picket fence is not in the center of attention it’s hard to imagine the yard without it. The focal point is undoubtedly the house and the fence may be hidden among the tall flowers, but just catching a glimpse of it can be felt upon the ambiance of the whole home!
Another Norwegian lookout, Seljord Watchtower was designed by Oslo and Bodø-based Rintala Eggertsson Architects. The watchtower was partly conceived and installed as a tribute to ‘Selma’, a legendary sea serpent living in the adjacent lake. The Seljord municipality is often visited by tourists, locals and avid bird-watchers. The twelve-metre-high tower has a periscope-like appearance and three lookout points: one at the tower’s apex, looking across Seljord lake, and two en route to the top. Also designed by Saunders Architecture, Stokke Forest Stair in Øye Sculpture Park, Norway, was completed in 2012. A clever woodland installation, the stairway provides the visitor with an elevated vantage point above the forest’s floor. The Stokke Forest Stair was transported by helicopter, and a careful analysis of the site meant no trees were felled in order to accommodate the structure.
