Comments Off on Enchanting tiny home combines French rustic charms and modern luxuries

French rustic charms and modern luxuries come together in this beautiful tiny home on wheels. France’s tiny house company Baluchon has outdone themselves again in their latest build called the Ostara, a tiny home built on a six-meter trailer. Currently located near a horse farm in Toulouse, the light-filled timber abode looks surprisingly spacious despite its small size and sleeps two in a loft bedroom. Custom built for clients Nathalie and Sebastien, Ostara was named after the stable close to the tiny home’s location. Although charming and rustic on the outside, the spruce -clad Ostara makes a grand impression with its large French doors flanked with curtains that open up to a light-filled living room. A large 1.8-meter-long sofa forms the living room’s focal point and can also comfortably lodge an overnight guest. A small bookcase, wood-burning stove , and a small dining table that accommodates three people is located to the left. To the right of the living room is the kitchen with a full-size sink, pantry, two-burner stovetop, fridge/freezer, and a gorgeous extendable wooden countertop. The bathroom with a full-size shower and composting toilet are tucked into the end of the home. Related: Fully-furnished tiny house from France easily fits a family of three A corner staircase with built-in storage leads up to the mezzanine with a large loft bed . Multiple double-glazed openings, including a broad bay window and one-meter-wide circular window, punctuate the home and provide views of the horses and rural surroundings. Sheep wool, cotton, linen, hemp, and wood fibers were used for insulation. The home is made from locally sourced materials. Baluchon’s beautiful homes are only delivered in France due to the company’s desire to limit carbon emissions. + Baluchon Via Tiny House Talk

Comments Off on Spiky sweets shop makes extraordinary use of the common traffic stopper

This new ice cream shop in Pozna?, Poland is a treat for the stomach—and the eyes. Clad in nearly a thousand white traffic cones, this spiky mobile shop for LODOVNIA is the creative work of local studio mode:lina architects . The eye-catching facade shows off an extraordinary use of an ordinary object, and references the conical shape of the ice cream cone. Completed this month, the LODOVNIA ice cream shop is a 35-square-meter building currently docked in the heart of Pozna?’s Stary Browar. Its sculptural facade is a response to the shop’s central location in the Courtyard of Art and LODOVNIA’s signature product: ice cream served in a cone. Nearly one thousand white traffic cones protrude out of the shop’s facade in five directions, giving it a whimsical and prickly appearance. Large glazed panels allow passersby to peek into the shop and also reflect Stary Browar’s surrounding architecture. In contrast to the white cones, the rest of the facade is painted black. Related: Hedgehog Concert Pavilion Makes Traffic Cones Beautiful “The interior is a black and white composition as well, warmed by triangle-shaped elements made of natural plywood,” wrote mode:lina. “Both the triangles and the shape of a sport cone further connect with the letter V in LODOVNIA’s logo, which makes the architectural result consistent with the ice cream shop’s visual identity system.” + mode:lina Images by Patryk Lewin?ski
