How to bring out the beauty of the concrete walls
Dare to be bold and courageous with your interior design?
Then the concrete walls are probably not a bad option for you. Sometimes they appear as a task that still needs to be completed. Actually, however, you loosen up the shapes and put the accent on the room itself with its simple elegance and unique personality.
The rough and unfinished look of the concrete can not be denied. The trendy industrial style adorns the walls. Although one can hardly believe it at first, this style is more than inviting.

This is a work of the architects from TheConstructionZone. You have done the renovation of this residence in 1998. What do you like most about this house?

Just take a look at this terrace furniture with the fireplace and the concrete wall. Or what do you think of this modern home office or the way in which you can see how the concrete is reflected in the mirror.

Is there any better place for concrete walls than a fancy retreat anywhere in the mountains? Here one clearly shows that the idea of concrete as a cold and sterile material is outdated. Here, the hippie style gets a current meaning and at the same time, the whole thing is super comfortable and warm. With a lot of glass you finally reach perfection.

The architects of this house are from Coates Design Architects. They have a really great approach to concrete. The house increases the floor area to maximum by using the vertical space.

This is a wonderful example of how to connect the outside world with the inside world … right?
The designers of E. Cobb Architects have outdone themselves with this building. Consistent gray colors, stylish even more I have to say here are broken up by warm nuances and bold shades. They complement in a wonderful way the great views of the ocean. The effect is reinforced by the floor to ceiling windows.
Thanks to these windows you can define the building as a glass house. It is amazing how strong and powerful material like concrete can be so wonderfully connected to the glass ….

There must be something exciting about the combination of sand and the use of concrete. It is absolutely trandy that you integrate the environment into the interior design. There seems to be a tendency to use concrete walls that serve both for good insulation and as a visual focal point. Like many other properties in this area, this home is majestic, warm and inviting. The house also has something crazy about it, which makes it even more interesting.
There is a good reason why this building is called Box House. But, there is something very peculiar about it: the design makes up most of the architecture, and the whole thing stays elegant and tidy. In order to compensate for the concrete, the house incorporates a lot of glass, making the interior appear spacious and well ventilated. It can be said that the combination of concrete and glass is also winning in this case.
