Description: Home consists of space; space that is intended for shelter, a very primitive, fundamental and basic need for all human life, an envelope in which one wants to feel safe, protected and comfortable. It is a place of refuge. The home has evolved from fulfilling only the most primitive and basic need of its users, maturing into spaces that inspire and enrich the daily life of its inhabitants, where function and art merge. 'Modern Lux Housing' features unique site-specific designs that bend contemporary notions of sustainability with eye catching forms and supremely livable spaces. The houses in this book have all the elements of modern living, unique building structures and stylish interior designs. The homes featured here reflect modern ideas and artful solutions to differing sets of problems: an urban environment in which the buildable area is restricted, to rural environments, where distant vistas of the horizon and exterior landscape are the driving force behind its form. Locations featured include: Korea, Japan, Australia, Brazil, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Germany, Ukraine, Switzerland, The USA, Mexico, The Netherlands, Israel, South Africa, Canada, The UK, and India.
