Barn House in Fahndorf

The expansion designed by Propeller Z complements the available floor area of ​​just under 60 m2 by providing a living space and kitchen, that meets the needs of modern times. The new volume, following the edge of the site, is pushed into a section of the roof geometry of the yard without touching it. The shell of the new building constructed from ready-made panels in just one day opens with a generous glazing to the south and east, while the west and north sides remain almost completely closed.

I love your blog. It's brilliant! As a young architecture student I'm getting a lot of inspiration from here. May I have a request: Portuguese tile architecture.

Thanks! As requested here are some examples of Portuguese tile architecture:

Palace of the Marquesses of Fronteira

Capela das Almas Church

Palace of Sintra

Tomb of Shah Rukn-e-Alam, Multan, Pakistan.

Sheikh Rukn-ud-Din Abul Fath (1251–1335) commonly known by the title Rukn-e-Alam (Pillar of the World) was among the eminent Sufi saints from Multan, Pakistan. The tomb building is an octagon, 51 feet 9 inches in diameter internally, with walls 41 feet 4 inches high and 13 feet 3 inches thick, supported at the angles by sloping towers. Besides its religious importance, the mausoleum is also of considerable archaeological value as its dome is reputed to be the second largest in the world, after Gol Gumbaz of Bijapur, India.

The mausoleum is built entirely of red brick, bounded with beams of shisham wood, which have now turned black after so many centuries. The whole of the exterior is elaborately ornamented with glazed tile panels, string-courses and battlements. Colors used are dark blue, azure, and white, contrasted with the deep red of the finely polished bricks. The tomb was said to have been built by Ghias-ud-Din Tughlak for himself during the days of his governorship of Depalpur, between 1320 and 1324 AD, but was given by his son, Muhammad bin Tughluq to the descendents of Shah Rukn-e-Alam for the latter’s burial in 1330.

I feel like this is really random and silly so if you don't feel like answering that's fine! ....but I absolutely love your interior design & architecture and I was wondering if you could share some tips or some of your strategies on building/decorating? Specifically I'm thinking of how you mismatch chairs but they're still cohesive, how you use so many colors but it looks great and not at all messy, aaaand basically how everything is gorgeous :) Thank you thank you so much for your time!

FIRSTLY THANK U IM HONOURED!!!!!

secondly,,,, honestly ive been trying to answer this question for days in a cohesive way but i just cant because even idk what im doing when i decorate. 

but heres some random tips to decorate like me:

  • keep wood colours generally the same-ish - like, dont use super dark & super light
  • blue is a good colour
  • so is yellow
  • anythign that looks good with those two colours works well together
  • i dont rly like purple dont use that a lot
  • plants!!!! LOTS of plants just fucking bomb the place w plants
  • bomb is w ivy too it covers up the weird spots 
  • rugs r ur friend if a room is looking weird add a rug 
  • but the cute rugs not the ugly nana ones 
  • anything from the kids pack/bowling pack/the pack with the water slide/movie hangout looks gr8 together
  • also the gold & teal & magenta swatches from the vintage pack are so good
  • make it rly colourful
  • jst fuckin CLUTTER IT UP DONT B AFRAID TO MAKE IT LOOK LIKE A HOARDERS HOUSE
  • when it comes 2 chairs pick like,,,, two colours u like and only add chairs of that colour. that way u can have heaps of weird ones but keep it lookin kinda cohesive!
