Eager to flee the city at a moment’s notice, a couple who run a creative studio in Bratislava decided it was time for a weekend home. On a forested plot overlooking a lake in nearby Vojkanad Dunajom, architect Peter Jurkovič of JRKVC created a calming cabin that frames views of the countryside.
With limited square footage indoors, the space gets dirty very quickly, especially in a damp climate where Emma’s two girls are constantly tracking in mud and dirt. Getting a good’s night rest can be a challenge, and privacy is hard to come by.
Like all of the restored structures, the interior of the school house features a modern and bright aesthetic. The cottages range in size from one bedroom up to a nine-bedroom main house.
Vaulted ceilings, arched windows, and Bauhaus-inspired design make The Deacon an ideal backdrop for weddings, reunions, and other parties.

The combined living, dining, and kitchen areas take up the main floor. "The goal for the design was to feel [as though you are] outside," says Dignard. Large, sliding glass doors capture the view and lead to an exterior deck.
Like much of the Italian Riviera, La Spezia on the Ligurian coast has a long maritime history. It was precisely this seafaring legacy that inspired the design of this tiny home, a 377-square-feet apartment that was reconfigured to clearly separate the living and sleeping areas. A cabinetry wall is constructed with marine plywood.
The custom-built shaker-style cabinets are made of ultralight plywood and topped with Glacier White Corian countertops.
White-painted walls and cabinetry are offset by pale wood kitchen counters, stair treads, and flooring to maintain Scandinavian design aesthetics as well as a light and airy feeling for the interior.
To ensure acoustic separation between the homes, the living spaces are located at either end, while service spaces are stacked adjacent to the central wall.
After: The industrial accents were kept at the ceiling in a nod to its past. The city required interior insulation to fulfill code, which meant McCuen was unable to expose the more rough, industrial texture on the walls.
A stepped drywall ceiling lends texture and interest on the interior. The open-plan public space, which includes the kitchen, dining area, and living room, is sectioned by a pair of box-like volumes that contain the two bathrooms; the two bedrooms are located at the rear of the house.

A tired midcentury in Eagle Rock with a chalky-green facade was transformed into a warm, contemporary home for a couple and their two daughters. The original single-level house had three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a small kitchen, a concrete deck in the backyard, and an above-ground swimming pool beside the guest house. "The first thing we did was put in white oak hardwood floors throughout the house, then add the Fleetwood sliding doors off of the living room. Eventually, we added a bedroom, extended the master bedroom and added an ensuite bathroom, enclosed the washer/dryer area, which expanded the kitchen, built a wood deck, wood fences, and then remodeled the guest house. No room was untouched by the time we were finished," says Matt, a woodworker and designer who is also the founder of L.A. handcrafted furniture brand Monroe Workshop.
The home welcomes visitors into a double-height entry hall. The bright space makes use of the original barn structure with a spacious, open floor plan and cozy spaces built into alcoves.

In addition to its sloping, tree-covered lot, what makes the Birch Le Collaboration House so special is the home's large, indoor-outdoor covered porch.

The original home was slightly extended to the west on the ground floor to accommodate a stair leading to the new upper level and a large, floor-to-ceiling window that floods the interior with natural light. The blue paint used in the main areas is Dulux Capital Blue S34C9.

The home’s entry, anchored by a nursery to the north and an office to the south, leads directly to the main living area.
The Kinuta A-DT01 dining table was inspired by “the crude beauty and roughness of the demolished Kinuta apartment interiors prior to their restoration.” The structure of the table is meant to reflect the apartments’ geometric design.

The loft features a lounging area and a cozy, built-in sleeping nook beside a window.

The bedding is from Parachute Home.
When set up as a rental unit, a KODA Concrete can accommodate two guests in the sleeping area and another two on a convertible sofa in the living area.
