Somehow #691 looks really London-ish, dont know why Its really gorgeous obviously, but smth missing for my taste, maybe its just the interior but I feel its too little of it for such an impressive loft. I wouldnt over-decorate it either, no way, but just give it a bit more personality

my mom picked up this book from a used book sale. it's a bit outdated (1985), but it's very inspiring. i don't have a scanner, but here are a few photos:

The Four Room House, home to Belgian architects Pieter Peelings and Silvia Mertens of Sculp(IT), is stacked on four different floors. That's right, one room per tiny floor...

The compact footprint of this vertical house makes for an interesting exercise in small living: rooms are spare and the purity of the design is always intact. The basic sequence for each floor is a long, slender space with one specific function (sleep, eat, work, etc) and a glass front permitting light and views. The first floor is a workspace, with a big glass door that opens the full front of the room to the sidewalk. Walk up one floor on the spiral stair and you're in the kitchen/dining room. One more floor up is the living room. A projection screen lowers in the small space for viewing videos. The uppermost floor is the bedroom and toilet, with an awesome view from the bed out of the full glass front wall. Where's the bathtub, you ask? On the roof, of course! As much as we're loving this compact house, we're having trouble getting on board with the shower and toilet in the bedroom. Otherwise, we're on board.

I love that house in 699. It's everything I'm looking for in a house, open spaces, lots of windows, minimalist/modern style and ON THE WATERFRONT. I hope someday I'll be able to afford something like that.

Thank you guys for posting all those pictures. This thread is so theraputic.

^ You're right, it must be very uncomfortable. I know a house right in front of the beach where you can see aaaall of the inside from the street. When I pass by I can always see what the people that live there are doing (yeah, I confess - it's stronger than me! ahah) ..and I can´t stop thinking about how can they live like that!

Of course they have an amazing view of the beach, that is right across the street, and the light must be fantastic. But still
