City Beach Residence


Rate This Concept Now!

Overview: It’s a two-level structures that merges the interior spaces and the surrounding landscape forming one amazing retreat. The most spectacular is the upper floor which is almost completely opened to the views.

The living space occupies one end of an L-shaped open floor plan. As you go up the stairs to reach this level, you’ll find it on the left side while directly in front is a series of floor-to-ceiling glass walls and sliding doors and a modern fireplace positioned in such a way that it can be enjoyed from both sides of the glass structure.

The way the indoor and outdoors spaces blend is really majestic. An undulated roof protects the exterior spaces from rain and too much sunlight, offering a pleasant and intimate mood.

The 360 House in Madrid


Rate This Concept Now!

Overview: This stunning architectural piece called the 360 House in Madrid, Spain eschews standard conformity by looping in on itself. The roof is at once protective and accessible as a walkway. Of course this means that almost no wall inside is flat but I suspect interior designers are up for a new challenge nowadays. Congrats to Andrés Silanes, Fernando Valderrama and Carlos Bañón. We must visit this house! Want to give us a tour Subarquitectura?

Overview: The latest in a trend of specialized hanging systems, the Wall Ride is a practical and versatile rack that’s perfect for putting your skateboard on display (and out of the way)! A handy slot keeps your board safely elevated to avoid dings and scratches on both the deck and your home walls, and even doubles as a bottle opener. Three hooks and two additional shelves allow you to conveniently hang almost anything else, including gear like helmets, gloves and knee pads.

Stellio – Rock Climbing Aid


Rate This Concept Now!

Overview: The unique ability of geckos to scale walls and suspend from ceilings has attracted the interest of naturalists for ages. Now that modern technology has unlocked the secret behind the lizard’s perplexing mobility, synthetic materials like Geckotape and Geckskin give us humans increased mobility in a variety of scenarios like rock climbing! Stellio is one such device that utilizes these adhesive materials to supplement climbers’ safety. Attach it to a carabiner clip to help cling to near-vertical surfaces without compromising hold.
