The Best Photos of Modern Homes, Bathrooms, Kitchens, and More

Glass Farmhouse | Olson Kundig
A custom rain-gutter system collects even slight amounts of precipitation in an underground cistern and distributes it to the yard. The Cor-Ten pivoting window is by Brian Linn of Vincent Designs.
Kitchen
John Issa of Perimeter Architects oversaw the creation of the rope room. “It posed tons of challenges,” he recalls. “Designing with a material that has slack is more math than I care to tackle.”
The compact living area is just off the kids’ room.
Kid's Room
Brian Littleton isn’t a dad, but he may be the world’s coolest uncle. His brother’s kids come over to play in the indoor tree house, take his model trains for a spin, or just curl up on the Fatboy beanbag chairs.
Although it mimics the appearance of rickety mining shanties, the home is airtight. Triple-glazed windows and highly insulated walls contribute to its overall net-zero status.
The cathedral-shaped steel beams outline the open plan of the main house, which includes a kitchen, upstairs loft, bathrooms, and hallways that connect all of the yurt structures. The central structure is made of concrete and serves as a thermal mass to keep the home cool in summer and warm in winter.
Kitchen
This area of the residence is the closest to the river. The tall windows make it possible to cook in perfect harmony with the external environment.

Loft South
Twin daughters Merle and Anine join their parents in the family’s kitchen, designed by Jensen for Vipp. He explains that his role as chief designer at Vipp is to “work with their DNA” by refining the company’s trademark materials: stainless steel, painted metal, and rubber. For the utilitarian kitchen, “we wanted to get the feeling of a tool,” he says. “It’s nice to have a space where you can actually work.” The gas stovetop is by ABK and the refrigerator is by Smeg; Le Perroquet spotlights are from iGuzzini.

Interior spaces are simple and understated. Natural timber in light tones contrasts with white walls, lit by washes of sunlight.
