Dark, brooding, and tough as nails, the Treow Brycg House embodies the spirit of a great seaside fortress. The residence is located on the coast of Nova Scotia. Its slanted form is modeled after the gambrel-roofed barns native to the region. Paired with its extra-dark bronze aluminum shield, the home can stand up to the harsh coastal climate. The oceanfront facade consists of concrete and blackened timber. Glazed panels running the length of the north elevation offer extensive views of Kingsburg beach to the two-story interior. In contrast to its somber exterior, the inside is full of warm details produced by walnut finishes and brass fixtures. A cantilevered deck extends toward the water, acting as an outpost to keep a watchful eye on the shore below. Photos:

Drawing inspiration from the Japanese concept, the Inbox Capsule Hotel is an introvert-friendly way to get the hostel experience. The Saint Petersburg property offers three ways to stay. Its most economical option is their SmartBox. The dorm-style rooms offer 6 to 16 plywood-lined pods that come with individually controlled ventilation and A/C, a personal locker, and a roller shade to close out other guests. For a little more seclusion, opt for the MonoBox offering a private room with a half-bath or for total isolation, stay in the DoubleBox that has its own en-suite bathroom. No matter which you choose, you'll still receive the same sleek, minimalist aesthetic. Located in the heart of the city, it's situated within walking distance of the Church on Spilled Blood, the Summer Garden, and the Chernyshevskaya Metro Station.
Envisioned as a companion device for your "real" smartphone, the Palm Phone is meant to provide just enough connectivity to keep you sated while encouraging you to focus on the world around you. It's roughly the size of a credit card, so it's lighter in your pocket, uses Verizon's NumberShare so it doesn't need a separate line, and has a "Life Mode" that automatically mutes all notifications anytime you turn the screen off. It has 12MP and 8MP cameras on the rear and front and runs Android 8.1 on a 3.3-inch screen, so while it might be meant to get you off your device, you can still ruin the effect by loading it up with apps and games if you want.

Built off-site using only sustainable materials, the 3Box92 House is a vertical extension of a 19th-century building. The home sits on a street in the Boulogne Billancourt district of Paris. Its black limewash facade and modern cubic form is a stark contrast to the existing architecture. Inside, the geometric theme continues where stacked boxes form the internal layout. The staggered pattern creates a series of terraces and cantilevers on the rear elevation. This south end consists of a garden and pool backed by an opposing white limewash. Utilizing prefabricated systems, the entire project was constructed with only natural, recyclable items, and responsibly harvested wood.Photos:
