Rose Denisova Outdoor, November 25th , 2017. 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.

Emilia Vorobyova Outdoor, November 25th , 2017. Sitting next to an infinity edge pool, the spacious pool house contains an informal dining space along with a full-fledged kitchen and other private spaces. The dining area flows into the terraced garden and pool deck outside thanks the use of large, sliding glass doors that seamlessly connect the interior with the outdoors. As far as the green roof itself, architects had to request the city for special permissions as existing construction and water drainage norms simply did not permit for the lovely addition. A curved wooden roof also plays into the overall schematic and cleverly hides the project’s equipment and additional support even as it allows natural light to flood indoors. Additional rainwater simply drains away from the green roof and flows to a natural creek nearby while a large fireplace provides a warm and striking focal point as the sun sets and dark Texas nights take over.
Lada Isayeva Outdoor, November 25th , 2017. 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).

Lilith Yevseyeva Outdoor, November 25th , 2017. This observation tower rises above the river Mur at the Austrian border with Slovenia. Completed in 2009, it was designed by Munich-based architectural practice terrain for the city of Gosdorf in Austria. Made of steel and aluminium, the tower is intentionally incongruous in its Styria forest setting. Visitors to the tower enjoy revolving views of nature, as they ascend and descend its double spiral stairs. At its peak, a platform rests twenty-seven metres above the ground, offering views across the treetops of the wonderful riparian forest. It would appear that Norway is a country with many vantage points. Utsikten—or ‘the view’—was designed by Oslo-based Code Arkitektur. The rather quirky triangular viewing platform perches at the top of Gaular mountain on Norway’s western coast. With its raised corners, Utsikten affords three different viewpoints.
Lada Isayeva Outdoor, November 25th , 2017. A picket fence is very versatile. It’s an amazing addition to a rural, countryside home that is surrounded by nature and needs to stand out among the greens. The entrance onto your property has a lot of value. It can be cute and subtle, or it can be majestic and grandiose. Pair a big entryway with a classy white picket fence to create an unforgettable exterior that embodies glamour and elegance. Even when the picket fence is not in the center of attention it’s hard to imagine the yard without it. The focal point is undoubtedly the house and the fence may be hidden among the tall flowers, but just catching a glimpse of it can be felt upon the ambiance of the whole home!
Frida Bobrova Outdoor, November 25th , 2017. There is something so familiar about a white picket fence that it immediately draws us in. It is compelling to look at, urging us to get closer to it and the breathtaking garden that’s lying behind it. We can stare at the fence in fascination, wondering if the interior of the house does the marvelous exterior justice. A home with a conservative style and patriotic appeal is ideal for a white picket fence! It’s the classic model for an American dream – a simple suburban family lifestyle. Red brick houses are so captivating! They have a raw look that radiates a strong character which makes them very noticeable. Soften their look with a charming white picket fence.
