March 3, 2015 Home Improvement


Water leakage in our home is a common problem that most of us faces. This can happen because of a lot of reasons. If a house is quite old and proper repairing or maintenance work is not done, it can lead to water leakage. It can also happen that because of a crack in the pipe the water is seeping through the walls thereby making the walls damp. It is often said that the bathroom is one of the most common places where water leaks takes place.

W-House in IJburg, Amsterdam by VMX Architects

March 2, 2015 Modern House Design


Description from the Architects :
The Walta-Elmers family commissioned VMX Architects to design their house on ‘Kleine Rieteiland’, one of the islands of IJburg. The client wanted a spacious, open house with plenty of light. The plot measures 8 by 30 metres. By studying several models, the concept of ‘woonlandschap’ (living-landscape) was chosen.

The ground floor, containing the living and kitchen, in a split level typology, has the possibility to completely open to the outside and thereby create a partly covered living-landscape of 8 by 30 meters. This landscape is articulated with a higher and lower level. Under the higher level a multifunctional cellar is placed. The bedroom level is accessed by a spiral staircase. A round roof-light above the stairs brings light into the living-landscape The facade on the first level is completely closed with patio blocks. This suggests a floating box over the open landscape on the ground level. [ VMX Architects ]

Office Interior Design by Rottet Studio Office Interior Design by Rottet Studio

Are you looking for for your office interior, or want to make a one of room in your house to become a office room?

Rottet Studio has collections about it, like this Artis Capital Management Office Interior. The office was conceived as a “white box.” As the white planes peel away, the materials, textures and colors behind are revealed resulting in a “visually quiet” space which counteracts the constant visual stimulation of multiple computer screens. No walls touch the perimeter and service areas are located around the core, allowing clear views throughout the space of the entire city. Custom carpet emulates water lapping on the shore. A dark gray cleft stone surrounds the entire floor between columns to reinforce the notion of rippling tides at the water’s edge. Along the Bay side, incisions are cut into the white box in the ceiling in a pattern that emulates barges in the Bay. These incisions are carved away to reveal a warm wood material beyond and provide ambient light. The city side is more rigid and orthogonal mimicking the city’s grid pattern. The six small offices double as mini art galleries. A giant door conceals the work area and, when closed, the room is void of visual elements allowing the impressive art collection to be the feature. The lounge-style chairs with matching ottomans allow employees to retreat into their “home” and relax. Source
