Dream House Ideas
Different architecture and design ideas for our big multi-family dream home
The glass and wood on the right side. The lighting in the ceiling. Also kind of like the sort of frosted glass door on the left.
The garden around the tub = awesome.
Mini Version of the Lightwell concept. Also like the way the doors are handled.
Sort of...it's a good example of a sort of lightwell/garden combo.
More Garden Bathroom ideas
Not quite, but it starts to evoke the right kind of feel I'm aiming for. Take note of the second floor windows.
This is a nice idea. The stone columns to frame in the glass. I like the ceiling lights. I'm definitely thinking main hallway here. Don't know if I like this better than the wood though.
Now here's an interesting thought...maybe slide the kitchen around so it's facing the courtyard instead of the front yard? I don't know if I like what that does to the rest of the floor plan, but there's something kind of quaint about this window counter set-up.
This definitely isn't what the aim is, but I included it because of the window/door/wall things. They've been slid open a tremendous amount to let the living spaces all just kind of flow together. It's really nice.
I kinda like the graduated steps down towards the center. I don't know but I think that might be something to try and include. We could have the big deck on the outside but the inside slowly steps down to be ground level and even with the courtyard?
I love the way these look when they're all grown out like this. It might be fun to stick them in somewhere.
Holy cow I love this...have no idea how/if we could incorporate this.
Lime tree. This made me think of mom in so many ways.
Most examples are single room or half-room octagons. This kind of gives an idea of the shape of the central courtyard though. The second story windows will be tall and the ceiling will be much higher of course.
I like the way the roofing is handled here. The slight curve feels very nice. Now just imagine that cupola topped with a geodesic dome and you've kind of got the gist of the roof for the house.
This is more a floor plan overview. Kitchen on two walls open to the dining and living areas and looking directly into the courtyard. Just one possibility.
Imagine the walls at a 45 instead of a 90. Open directly to the dining area. Visual break because of the arch and then on into the living room while still being mostly open to one another. Just defines the spaces a little more.
This is kinda what I expect the ceiling of the upstairs hallway too look like.
Here we go. These walls are probably a better representation of the actual angle. I like the island sink.
Visual break to the main dining room with a little breakfast table tucked in the corner.
Another option. This time with more of a bar type island.
I have always wanted a pool...Tucked in the courtyard maybe? How big is this courtyard supposed to be anyway?
I love halfwalls, I don't know why but they break up the space so nicely. I like the step down into the living area. I also like the fireplace.
Another example. Half-wall breaks up the space but still allows for the kitchen to connect with the living area.
or the kitchen and family room can just flow together
open kitchen and family room. The fireplace is also nice.
I love this concept
Now this looks awesome
massive two person tub
Maybe? Lots of storage space.
Storage space. Sorting baskets. Folding spaces. That sink in the corner. The hanging rack above. It's all very nice.
Laundry/sewing/utility area? Nice and big with lots of storage.
First example I found that had a top loading washing machine so it didn't shove the units under a counter. It's fairly nice.
Including this one because of the angled walls and the multi-unit setup
Corner shelving for all those awkward corners
Definitely for the exterior yard.
Something like this maybe? Exterior yard probably.
I like this idea. Not sure we would actually incorporate it though.
I also kind of like the idea of this closed in area. My cats are indoor only. This could give them the ability to be "outside" without having to worry about losing them.
Kitchen, dining area, step down living space
this is awesome
island table combo
