House Tours Tuesdays

Today in House Tours Tuesdays: we continue with our favourite entries in the Apartment Therapy Small Cool Contest 2012 and we add a small and very narrow house in Chicago that makes one of the best uses of awkward spaces we have seen recently on the web.

Our first tour of today is a beautiful apartment in Brunico, Italy. It’s only 430 sq. feet (40 sq.metres). The decor is simple but not boring at all. Everything has been kept in the right places in order to avoid overloading the apartment with things and thanks to that the place feels spacious and bigger.

Simple colours on the walls (white) and a beautiful light coloured wood flooring are the main bones in here. Colour is introduced through bright and cheerful accessories. The light coloured wood is used as well in the cabinets in kitchen, which is an open plan kitchen/living room.

The result is a well organised and laid out apartment full of light with some colourful splashes. Jump to the article to read more and see all the photos.

This apartment is in Houston, Texas. It’s 940 sq. feet (87.32 sq. metres) much bigger than other apartments we have brought to the blog. And all that space has been used to create a spacious and beautiful apartment.

The living room is spacious and has a beautiful wood flooring that runs all around the house. The dark blue walls make it look modern and look fantastic in contrast with some of the accessories. The rest of the rooms are painted in lighter colours and look very fresh and bright as well.

It’s a nice and sophisticated look on the cheap making use of only paint on your walls. Jump to the article to read more and see all the photos.

This is going to be one of the tiniest houses we have brought. It’s a holiday home but still manages to get the most out of the 170 sq. feet (15.80 sq. metres). In that very small space it manages to have a kitchen, living room, bathroom and sleeping area for two people. Which is a huge achievement in our opinion. The space has been optimised perfectly well to make everything fitting. Everything is the right size and it’s in the right place.

We do realise that this is not very usual in cities and it’s a holiday home but it’s so well organised that it’s impossible not to feel inspired by it.

Our last article from the Small Cool Contest 2012 is a very small apartment of 300 sq. feet (27.87 sq. metres). And it’s a very, very awkward space. But regardless of how awkward the space is the owner managed to fit a living/bedroom area, create an office, have a kitchen with dining area and a full bathroom.

Of course the layout has been very well thought and planned. She made use of the corridor space to create the office and the kitchen is custom designed to make use of all the space and a corner double sink to have a full kitchen.

As soon as you see the photos of this apartment you know that there has been a lot of time planning what it becomes a great result.

And we finish with a house that could compete in any contest for awkward houses. Who would have thought that in such a narrow space you could build  a full family house with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1 toilet, a kitchen with dinning room, a living room and den area, a garage and have a basement. All that using eco-friendly materials and techniques, and using the latest advances in order to minimise its running costs through the years.

The article and the additional articles below are full of information about the process and everything used as well as having more photos. It’s certainly a very interesting article no matter whether you are thinking of building a new house or thinking on a major renovation.
