Designed by Lynx Architecture, this modern Munich architecture really invites the outdoors in, and you're sure to follow. The U-shaped floor plan encircles an amazing outdoor entertaining area – ideal, whether your idea of “entertaining” is lounging by the pool and soaking us some sun solo, or hosting the party of the season for the whole neighborhood. As you enter the open-concept home design, you’re welcomed by the kitchen, living and dining area, all blending into one another but each offering a distinct style and function. The kitchen has an industrial-chic edge, with concrete and crisp, straight lines setting the tone. Another contemporary feature, floor-to-ceiling sliding glass walls are really cool, offering eternal views of the lovely landscaped outdoors and pool area. That’s not to imply this house is “cold” – the warm, honey-colored wood, both inside and put, really warms us the look and feel. An amazing two-sided fireplace feature gets things downright hot in the kitchen and living room. Upstairs, the L-shaped floor plan overlooks the "view-only" rooftop garden of the house. Larch wood slats (fully functional and operated electronically!) offer privacy while softening the contemporary aesthetic. Visit German architects Lynx Architecture for more info.

AppliancesDining and EntertainingHome AutomationModern OutdoorsHome Design Ideas Modernist Swedish Architecture over Sea and Sun



This modernist Swedish architecture is an ode to the simple (but beautiful!) things in life. Designed by Sweden architect John Robert Nilsson, this glass wall house was built on a limestone-covered concrete foundation that serves as an outdoor deck encircling the modernist house, sheltered under the overhanging roof. The glass walls actually end between the limestone slabs, offering a true “barely there” effect. Behind these floor-to-ceiling glass walls, minimalist interiors are crisp and contemporary – a stark contrast to the rough, rugged outdoors. Situated 23 meters above sea level, views of the sea and sun are ever-present from any point in the raised house plan. John Robert Nilsson
