Vancouver-based architect Omer Arbel doesn’t set out to design living spaces that are merely beautiful and functional. For him, success depends on taking things to the next level – an exercise in architectural poetics. In this 33-by-150-foot loft, the end result of his theory is pure delight – a deliberate placement of rough and smooth, rustic and sparkle, perfectly punctuated by a central shaft of open sky.
The designers of this house, Korean Iroje KHM Architects probably weren’t interested in creating a traditionally designed home, so they came up with this. The wild angles definitely give a grandiose appearance to the home, making it seem big, powerful and surely modern.
