Built in 2004, Haus Bold is made of prefabricated concrete.
The industrial looking cube-shaped house carefully uses glass walls and anodized aluminum facades. The site, equally minimalistic.
Concrete walls too. However, radiused walls and window treatments, textured, polished stone tiles, and a sunny day breathes warmth.
Concrete stairways and steel handrails take us to the second floor. Skylights, yes.
The stone tile is used on the wall in the bath. Stone sink. The mirror, the geometric lines play pleasant tricks.
All black kitchen. Stainless steel powder room. Very cool in every manner of speaking. Noticing the small planted trees via the large windows, these photos might have been taken right after move-in. Curious to know if large expansive walls now display art. Definitely a bold house.

Nuance is a new concept of the padded seat, in two sizes: one for use around a table and a “lounger” that’s lower and larger with an ottoman combination. Nuance combines a strong visual and ergonomic concept of “hand made” which gives added value to the object while the focus is on reducing waste.

The Paco home has a hammock, a Japanese-style recessed desk, a sink, toilet and shower, all in a crate that’s a 3-meter-cube. Not intended to replace where you live now, but rather to supplement it. It could be a beach house, a portable office – anything, really, as long as you find a way to lug it into place and hook up the water. Getting inside? A hatch-like roof to get in.
