Unbelievable Modern House Designs


I am a big fan of cool things and one thing I love to see is some modern and luxury house designs, it makes me so jealous but it's such a great inspiration at the same time. These houses are unique and very specially made so pay attention to the details and enjoy the view.

Created by Tighe Architecture Located in Los Angeles, California. A series of buildings are configured on a 10,000 square foot lot creating a protected inner court-yard. Folded planes define the roof and walls of the two story main house. Strategically placed windows frame views and perforate the building in a seemingly haphazard way. The pool house and guest wing offer restrained counterpoints in the form of modernist boxes mirroring each other at either end of open outdoor space.


Created by Isay Weinfeld This luxurious home in Sao Paulo, Brazil, was designed as a live-work space, and by “live” we mean entertain, relax, enjoy and create, for the graphic designer who calls this contemporary building “home." The modern design makes the most of its small lot and height restrictions by delving below grade, providing for three living levels in a two-storey design. The basement level is a bright and open space, and enjoys direct access to a rear garden, eliminating the feeling of being underground. The home’s main floor is slightly raised above ground, and is enclosed in glass for a bright and airy interior, home to a sitting room, dining room and the kitchen, with access to a larger outdoor area. The second floor boasts the bedrooms, a ballet area and swimming facilities enclosed by the cool grid that characterizes this modern house from the outside. Topping off this awesome design is a rooftop deck for entertaining guests or simply taking in the spectacular city skyline.

Vila Berkel

Created by Paul de Ruiter On the site of Villa Berkel, in Veenendaal, Netherlands. The dark woods, making it important to get the most possible light to create. But the more a glass house holds, the more difficult the border between inside and outside - between private and public - to monitor. The plot is at odds with the road divided into three long strips. The bottom strip to the south is reserved for the garden, the middle strip is home to the villa itself and the most northerly stretch includes the opening of the house: there are the driveway, the parking and the entrance. This land classification is the view of the parts of the house that we prefer to keep private limited.

Beach Chalet

Created by Studiomama The 388 sq ft structure is built on galvanised steel stilts to prevent flooding. The outside of the chalet is clad with cedar shingles and the inside is clad with sawn softwood. Because the land slopes away from the breach, both internal and external steps were constructed to create a level surface inside. Adding height to the rear of the chalet meant that the was space for a mezzanine level that now serves as a sleeping platform. With an oblong-shaped window above it providing lovely views over the country side. Behind the kitchen is the children's bunk beds and the bathroom. The sea view is the focus of the simple living space.

Wall-less House

Created by Tezuka Architects Located in Japan, the house supported only with a central core and a pair of extremely thin columns. There is no wall on the ground floor level and the internal space are extending 360 degree out to the garden. The lack of walls on the ground floor allows the interior living space to open up to the outdoors, with 360-degree garden access. Rising up three storeys, this spacious 2,582-sq.-ft. home boasts steel shutters that can be opened by day to flood the space with natural light, and closed at night for privacy. A gorgeous rooftop patio offers panoramic views of the surrounding city.
