This minimalist lake house designed by (and for) engineer/architect Susanne Nobis is so striking, with clean lines and simple, graphic shapes. The overall effect is airy and modern, and the design allows for maximum views of the surrounding nature. The house, located by Lake Starnberg (near Munich), is a modern reimagining of a traditional twin boathouse.
Architect Armin Blasbichler’s home was featured on Design*Sponge recently, and I was blown away by its whimsical, clean aesthetic. I think that so often, spaces are really cool and modern but somewhat lifeless, or they’re very creative but feel too precious/overblown to live in. This house has a wonderful balance of playfulness and minimalism.
