Southlands Residence Designed by DIALOG

From Cuded.com: "Designed by Architects, DIALOG, the Southlands Residence nestles into a mature, heavily vegetated corner site in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. A year-round fresh water stream divides the irregularly shaped property as it threads its way below Marine Drive to the south. The lush basin resulting from long-standing environmental forces sets the stage for a dramatic and highly contextual architectural response. The Southlands Residence spans the riparian environment and sets up a circulation sequence that culminates in a grand south facing outdoor ‘room’ on the water’s edge. The design capitalizes on moments of natural splendor in social zones while playfully borrowing from foliage and topography in the creation of private contemplative spaces."

I'm not a fan of modern architecture, but I love the location out in nature--it's a nice contrast to the style of the home
love all that natural light

The Best Way To Live: Tiny Houses
Tiny Houses have become the latest craze for younger people looking to spend most of their time outside, enjoying nature. Buying a house is expensive and can take up so much space on land you would rather use to garden, farm, hunt, or just enjoy as natural as it comes. Which is why tiny houses are becoming HUGE (see what I did there). With prices usually around $40,00 for an entire (sometimes) portable house, couples or solo land owners are finding it much easier to be able to afford an actual place of their own. And yes they can be portable! The main thing you pay for with your tiny house is land, so when you want to head out just hitch up your house, by another plot of land, and plop yourself down. Its like having an RV but way more....homey. Tiny Houses are defined as livable houses under 400 sqft Small Houses are defined as livable houses under 1000 soft Both are pretty tiny, but when done right can be amazing! Check out these pictures of Tiny Houses and try not to head straight to the bank! Here is a tiny house that has some style! The point of these houses are to embrace being in the outdoors which is why some houses have outside add ons. This house is doing things right with an added hot tub! Small and Tiny Houses can look amazing and way more spacious with huge windows. These windows also help you still connect with nature, even when you are indoors. Told you some houses can be portable! Not feeling where you live anymore? Just hook your house up to a truck and you can be across the country in a day. With tiny houses you can get creative with the design. Some even look like a hobbits houses which is really cool! Not all tiny houses need to be made out of wood! There are a ton of modern tiny houses that are perfect for a couple that needs minimal space! On the inside the main goal is to go up! Most things are stacked so that there is ample room but still an uncluttered space. The bed is usually a loft which helps leave tons of room for the downstairs living area. Proof that tall people can still have tiny houses! This man is pretty tall yet looks completely comfortable in his little house. Tiny and small houses aren't for everyone. They can get cramped, especially when its time to cook dinner, but for those outdoorsy people who hate being stuck indoors, tiny houses offer the perfect solution. Why waste money on a house you don't care about, or force yourself to live in an apartment that is in a town or city? Tiny houses can give the nature lovers a place of their own to live, connect with nature, and limit their carbon footprint. And that is AWESOME. Check out this very informative and funny video about living in tiny homes and how it can and will save you time and stress in the long run!
A Blissful Place for Manga Lovers!
For the longest time I only have one reason for visiting Japan. Nope, it's not for food. Nope, it's not for fashion. Yes. It's for hot spring! I may look an average 20 something gal but I'm a grandma at heart. I've been told that many times because of my peculiar lifestyle. I love jacuzzi and hot spring is one of the thing I've always wanted to try after watching dramas that features this fabulous chamber. Even though I really wanted to visit Japan I didn't think hot spring would justify the trip because Taiwan also have hot spring. The ticket and accommodation in Taiwan is more budget-friendly than Japan. It was not until today I found another reason to go visit Japan. Books & Bed This concept is really intriguing. Though, I don't openly express it, I'm a manga girl at heart. Throw me in a room with a bunch of manga and I will be more than happy to read them. This is place is truly a gem for book lovers and someone who appreciates minimal architect. At Book and Bed Hostel you get a beautiful view of the city at night and get unlimited access to book in their library until your eyes become drowsy. The industrial interior design is filled with cement walls, wooden bookshelves and wooden single beds. Obviously, it's not a place for you to get a comfy pillow and cozy bed. If you are solo or duo traveler, this is the type of place that will bring you a blissful evening. What more do you want from a short vacation getaway than a place to sleep and get inspired? Anyone else feel the same way?
