1. The Prinseneiland House

Architect and interior designer: Dorien Knegt, Location: Amsterdam, Netherlands

From the photographer: "On a sought-after idyllic island in the center of Amsterdam, an old warehouse, [which was] formerly used as a pillow factory and a garage, has been converted to a warm and eclectic family home."

2. Green Elephant

Architect: Azovskiy + Pahomova, Location: Dnepro, Ukraine

From the project uploader: "For more comfortable exploitation of the rooms, sliding systems and doors by Rimadesio have been applied everywhere. Adding seating [in the front hallway]—in particular a piece that takes advantage of the length and narrowness of a hallway, like a bench—is particularly well-suited [for the small space] because it works as a waiting nook."

3. Loft 64

Architect: Jeroen Makkink of EVA architecten, Location: 's-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands

From the project uploader: "In the heart of ‘s-Hertogenbosch, a former office and workshop was completely renovated and converted into a loft. Because the building is 20 meters deep and really only has light at the front and rear, access of daylight has been an important theme. The explicit wish of the client was to be able to enjoy the property as one large space. Various voids/vides were introduced that allow daylight to penetrate deep into the home. The voids provide glimpses between the various residential functions themselves."

4. Casa Carolina

Architect: Rodrigo Eterovic, Location: Los Ríos Region, Chile 

From the architect: The home is "a getaway house for a family and his friends in the south of Chile." Though the rest of the wood-clad house blends in with the natural scenery, the bright red door adds a pop of color to the quaint abode.

5. Super Loft

Architect and interior designer: studiomfd, Location: Amsterdam, Netherlands

From the architect: "A group of residents built Super Loft on the northern island. Building an extra room or creating more space because of changes in your family composition? Easy. The industrial architecture offers maximum flexibility. The building has communal rooftop gardens, charging docks for cars, and solar panels. Super Loft fits perfectly in today’s sharing economy trend. Each resident chooses its own layout, dimension, design, and budget."
