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.

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!

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.

Succulents are an ever-popular planter choice, and many modern design lovers create succulent gardens and plantscapes that feature a range of plants in different colors and forms. Reserving a couple of planters for seasonal flowers will give you a spot for an ever-evolving garden of blooms. Don’t be afraid to get inspiration from commercial landscaping. Office buildings and outdoor shopping centers are just two of many locations that often showcase large planters filled with flowers. Note the different color combinations, and snap photos of your favorites so you can take them to your local nursery to find out more about the plants.

Their simplicity is captivating and it’s no wonder many homeowners see them as the ultimate dream. A home with a dark exterior will wonderfully contrast the white fence, contributing to a balanced setting that is but a monochrome backdrop for the greens growing in the yard. The color white’s biggest blessing is the fact that it makes all the other colors stand out. If you really want the colorfulness of your house to be seen from miles away, a white picket fence is a sure-fire way to do so.

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.

The neatly spaced succulents below are striking in their form, and the fact that they are separated by a blanket of basalt gravel makes them all the more prominent: Just as many modern landscaping techniques involve using gravel as a base, the use of greenery as a base can add interest and a sense of abundance. For example, planting rosemary around the base of a tree creates a green “stage” and makes the tree’s setting all the more special. Above and below, we see rosemary at the base of a crape myrtle tree. The tree’s pink blossoms are extra vibrant against the greenery that surrounds them. You can take this same concept and apply it to smaller additions around your yard, such as greenery in planters. For example, moss beautifully offsets the green succulent in the next featured planter.

Make the best of it by creating a blooming yard. A charming little house with a calming gray interior is made magical by a really low white picket fence. The functionality of the fence is not a priority in this case – it’s all about the strong decorative value. Picket fences have been around for decades, growing in popularity with each year. Seeing an old-fashioned house with such a fence shouldn’t be a surprise but we’re still stunned about how much fresher a setting looks like, all because of a white fence. A house and a fence can blend together so well they seem to become one entity. The exterior feels synchronized in the most wonderful way, capturing the allure of simplicity.

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.
