Residential spaces come in many shapes and sizes – from large customized houses to small and challenging apartments. This Loft in Bratislava is somewhere in between – it measures 108 square meters of interior space and 151 square meters of terrace area. Designed by Prague-based by Atelier SAD, the loft is perched on the 12th floor of a 1998 multi-functional building in Slovakia’s capital. The designers had the challenging task of reconstructing the apartment in such a way that both the terrace and the interior spaces could be used to their full potential.
Luxurious living – something that we can’t afford but damn it we dream of it – it’s what this modern, three-storey house in Manhattan Beach, California, is all about. With a stunning view over the Palos Verdes Peninsula in Malibu, the house manages to pack a small but luxurious backyard in the tight space, a lush living space with large floor-to-ceiling windows, numerous skylights, an amazing pool and an elevator – that’s a pretty high building out there.. Designed by MAP Development & Aidlin Darling Design, if you were asking, this dream house sells for $5.6 million.
When it comes to small apartments, it’s mandatory to stay creative. The hardest part is to provide an uncluttered environment and create as much space as possible using smart methods. It’s more difficult to expand and make a house look more spacious than it actually is. This is why transforming micro-lofts and adapting them it’s never an easy job.

Undoubtably, Manhattan is one of the top elite choices when it comes to real estate investments.

This house with an unusual architecture is situated in a suburb of Sydney. It has a simple L-shaped plan incarnated by Durbach Block Jaggers Architects. But at the same time, it is full of interesting architectural ideas.

The most of the windows are oriented to the northern sun and the garden. The facade of the house tilts and lifts in some parts of it, providing light to the ground floor. The house was a winner of Horbury Hunt in Residential Category in 2010 and in 2011 NSW AIA Architecture Award.
