UK-based architect Antony Gibbon just unveiled his latest nature-inspired design , the Ventt House. Designed to integrate into the rocky coastal landscape, the minimalist black-roofed home is surrounded by glazed walls that offer stunning views of the surroundings. The Ventt house is a minimalist retreat for those wanting to disconnect from the world. Designed to be embedded into the landscape, the contemporary volume cuts into the rugged cliffside , mimicking its rocky surroundings. An exaggerated chimney soars dramatically out of the home’s base, creating a modern take on a lighthouse beacon.

On the interior, minimal furnishings were used to create a clutterless living space. Further fusing the home into the outdoors is the marble flooring, which runs continuously from the interior to the exterior where it forms a large deck that surrounds the home, eventually jutting out over the cliffside. + Antony Gibbon Designs + Antony Gibbon on Instagram

Fairy tales do come true and yes, they can happen to you – for just a mere $925,000. This dreamy Snow White cottage is a four bedroom, 4.5 bath home located in Olalla, Washington that has recently been put on the market. Although the whimsical home was, of course, inspired by the beloved fairytale princess, no word on whether it comes with seven dwarf roommates. The 2,800-square-feet cottage was built in 1982 and includes a number of custom amenities. The unique curvaceous design is complimented by hand-crafted doors with detailed iron work through the home. The interior is full of hand-carved wooden beams, stained glass windows, and even “magical cave”- like walls.
