The idea in this series is to show beautiful and inspiring houses. Houses that are remarkable for its design, elegance, elements, concept or simply because they are beautiful. So if you like architecture, interior design and beautifully designed houses, you are at the right spot. Check out this week beautiful house and stay tuned for more...
This Apartment Building in Luxembourg is a project by Metaform Studio. The project presents itself as a unique object characterized by the juxtaposition of simple and pure volumes. In this construction the use of a unique material, black shiny extruded metal, gives it its monolithic and sculptural character. During the day, when the weather is nice, it delivers a warm and intense color, which, with its sharp corners, creates a strong contrast with the absorbing materials of the neighboring buildings (such as the plaster of the facades). During more bleak weather it merges with the color of the sky. At night, it is more discreet, as it allows itself to be illuminated by the city lights and the passing cars, and sometimes it illuminates the artist's artwork itself. Sliding panels allow the residents to be in relation with their environment.
The mix of colorful murals and white walls and elements create a modern and interesting place. The apartment has a nice mix of art, colors and beauty, it's pure style. Definitely a great place to live. ;)
Check out Metaform Studio website for further details about this and other projects. See you next time.
We found this house at Freshome.
