The Radius House simply had to be ceiling number one in this ideabook, as the ceiling itself is made up of beautiful timber radii, and rules over all of the resulting architectural moves made in the house.
There is so much to love about this room, but for me, the ceiling is the icing on the cake. I wonder if the shape and shudder have something to do with acoustics? If you know, please tell me in the comment section.
This is a modern take on a coffered ceiling - it almost seems like I'm looking at the skeleton of a coffered ceiling, and the added lights make sure the ceiling is the star of the room.
This ceiling makes me imagine all sorts of movie plot ideas that describe who the heck meets here. Is it a modern round table of knights? A (relatively) minimalist sultan and his entourage? Aliens and earthlings?
This Vermont ski lodge has a barn-like vernacular style, and the absolutely gorgeous beam construction demands that it be left exposed.
More lovely beams. If I knew more about structure, I could tell you what the name of it is - does anyone know? The only thing I know is a flying buttress!
This is a kitchen makeover. Imagine how much smaller and darker it would seem with a drop, drywalled ceiling.
This is a detail shot from the same kitchen in the image above.
There's a great relationship between the lines on this ceiling and the lines on the chimney.
Using boards like this is a wonderful way to add warmth to a modern room. This aesthetic also adds to the treehouse feel of the office.
While the Hillside house can be classified as contemporary, elements like this ceiling add a traditional cozy feeling.
