If you live in an area where it’s not practical to cultivate a lush, green lawn, you may be interested in creating a more drought-tolerant landscape by using native plants that don’t require much water. Xeriscaping is becoming increasingly popular, and even if you’re not looking to add large amounts of gravel to your yard, you can create an abundant look by grouping plants into clusters. After all, there’s power in numbers. Whether you saturate an area with a large number of the same plant or you introduce some variety by incorporating a couple of different types of native plants, you can get a modern look by planting greenery in rows or tidy groups. When “like” plants are placed together and more than one selection is involved, you can achieve eye-catching contrast. Or you can make a statement by including one different plant that stands out in the pack (scroll to the top of the post to see a lone blue agave plant take center stage in a sea of Mexican feather grass).
In a way, the driveway is a physical extension of a house. It extends deep into the outdoors, creating what feels like long a platform intended for your cars. It has a beautiful sleek look and can serve as a front yard as well. This modern driveway capitalizes on clean lines, creating a breathtaking outdoor space that feels harmonious together with the simplistic house, contrasted only by the bright green grass right next to it. This home combines the design of a cute suburban house with modern features such as tall windows and vast checkered driveway. The driveway stands out with the gray look and visibly contrasts the brick built house. A luxurious villa best benefits from a driveway that serves several purposes at once; it doesn’t only lead into a parking garage but to a several entrances and the rest of the front yard as well. Who wouldn’t want to be welcomed by a big and bright driveway surrounded by palm trees every time they come home! This modern driveway truly embodies paradis. A driveway is an entryway onto your property so it has a job of making a good first impression! It should have a tasteful look, one that makes people feel the warmth of your hospitality. Synchronicity is very important if you are trying to create an exterior that leaves people in awe. Make sure your modern driveway sends the message of being a part of the house, of belonging to the home in a manner that can’t be ignored.
Devil’s Corner was designed in 2015 by Australian architectural practice Cumulus Studio. Located in Apslawn, Tasmania, Devil’s Corner is one of Tasmania’s largest vineyards. A project for Brown Brothers, Devil’s Corner incorporates a cellar door, lookout and marketplace. Created using a a series of timber clad shipping containers, the lookout encourages visitors to explore the vineyard through a number of curated views. The horseshoe-shaped Grand Canyon Skywalk is a see-through, cantilevered bridge. Jutting out seventy feet from a side canyon in Grand Canyon West, the Skywalk is elevated at a dizzying 4,000 feet above the Colorado River. Designed and engineered by Lochsa Engineering & MRJ Architects, the Skywalk was commissioned by the Hualapai Indian Tribe who manage it as a way to accrue money from tourism.
Offering a majestic vista, Aurland Lookout is an architectural marvel. Located in Aurland, Norway—a country crammed with spectacular fjords, lush forests and great mountains—the lookout was designed by Bergen-based Saunders Architecture (a practice established by Canadian architect Todd Saunders in 1998). Completed in 2006, Aurland Lookout is referred to by the architect as ‘a walkway into the void’ and a ‘piece of architectural theater.’ The lookout measures thirty metres in length, and a 1.2-metre-high glass balustrade protects visitors from a sheer, vertical drop. Beyond this transparent barrier, the view of the fjord and mountains is breathtaking.
