We stumbled across this beautiful vacation residence designed by TMS Architects and situated in a scenic town in New Hampshire, United States.The nearby lake is one of the many factors that probably influenced the position and design of this home. Its exterior made me thing of a typical suburban house, with white picket fences and friendly neighbors. At the same time, the residence lets out an impression of elegance and sophistication, due to the traditional details it exhibits.
Walk the rocky steps towards the main entrance and be amazed by the generously-sized living room, with a classic fireplace, large floor-to-ceiling windows framing the lake and an overall cozy atmosphere. Even though the style employed throughout is traditional, the interiors are spiced up by vibrant colorful decorations, making each functional space alive and alluring. How would you describe the feel of this house? Do you like its design more or less than that of the modern homes we usually feature on our site?
These days, a building doesnt just have to look good, it should ideally be good for the environment too. A great example of sustainability spliced with style from the past few years is the M&S store at Cheshire Oaks Retail Park in Ellesmere Port, designed by Aukett Fitzroy Robinson.
A good building should make you want to look at it. Even if not always liked by passers-by, it should always make them feel something. Manchester Metropolitan’s University’s business school is a building that effortlessly fits this criteria. Indeed for many, the building by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios is their first taste of the architecture of Manchester as they travel along the arterial road, Mancunian Way. With its distinct ski-slope roof, and glittering mirrored appearance, it provides a flash of silver, and a dazzling break from the dull greys of the motorway, greeting motorists in a slightly space-age way as they enter the city
