The Sublimely Refreshing Los Limoneros in Spain

 architecture

Los Limoneros is a oil and minimalist private residence in Marbella, Spain.

 architecture

Barcelona-based Gus Wüstemann Architects have created a bold plan with ingenious sun filtering.

 architecture

A series of cubes captures attention as an intriguing design – but also functions as a cooling element.

 architecture

Almost every window cleverly prevents direct access from Spain’s blazing sun.

 architecture

Oblique openings offer the sense of freedom of wide open windows while keeping the interiors – like this open air bathroom – cool and calm.

 architecture

The generous bathtub is a cooling relaxation spot entirely open to one of the outdoor courtyards between the cubes.

 architecture

Where glass does enclose the interior a screen of concrete bricks first deflects the direct sun.

 architecture

The effect is to create a series of cool cavelike interior spaces.

 architecture

The back of the house has larger open courtyards pulling in cooler air from the north.

 architecture

A moat-like lap pool encircles a grass lawn.

 architecture

Starkly minimalist, cool stone throughout also acts to passively chill the heat of the region.

The result is a refreshing, private and tranquil home.

Scrumptious Cedar Treehouse is a French Spa Retreat

 architecture

The Cabane & Spa treehouse is literally in a treehouse.

2 architecture

A tree, a cabin, a dream…

 architecture

The natural cedar getaway is in the Midi-Pyrénées region in southern France, 31 miles north of Toulouse.

 architecture

Its freshly starched white sheets, linen drapes and warm cedar-clad walls… What a far cry from the spider-infested tree houses of childhood!

 architecture

Canopée Construction built the sturdy spa as one of a series of cabanas aux arbres.
 architecture

It is set in the tree canopy 12 feet above a grassy lawn.

 architecture

They rent the treehouse by the night – and serve a French breakfast of coffee and croissants.

 architecture

The luxury of a hot tub as you step out of bed!

Bliss!

Classicism Meets Minimalism in a Gracious St Petersburg Studio

 architecture

Architect and interior designer Natalia Ozerova uses thick slabs of bas relief work to shape an elegant space.

 architecture

Lovely bas relief work in faux stone is used throughout each room.

 architecture

The extremely modulated colour palette surrounding the ecru bas relief has a calming effect.

 architecture

The same severely restricted colour palette is used throughout.

 architecture

A mirror doubles the tiny space in a continuation of the ecru and blue-gray of the bedroom.

 architecture

The St Petersburg apartment gracefully blends classicism and minimalism.

 architecture

Even in a tiny toilet, classicism breathes its sense of perspective.

 architecture

Miraculously a gracious space is created from a very tiny apartment.

 architecture

The vertical lines of a bookcase emphasise the apartment’s one gracious proportion in the entry.

 architecture

There is barely room for a fireplace.

 architecture

Yet as you step out of the bedroom, a calming sight greets you.

 architecture

And turning and looking back at the bedroom wall, a shiny black TV and classical sculpture is flanked on each side by a pair of mirrored doors that reflect the few windows, with no hint of the bedroom beyond.

 architecture

Blending modernity and a classical aesthetic, even the stark black of TV screens acquires an ancient elegance!
