Well, here I will definitely yell “Oh, Universe, thank You to the skyyyyy!” Super natural interior, exterior and surroundings are such a bless. Imagine You just won the project and You can suddenly afford a massive house with an enormous back yard for Your entire family. Now You need some inspiration where and which house to choose. Don’t worry, I found 3 stunning house ideas in the valley or the hillside.
Vega Cottage – serenity and peace on the islanD of vega
Kolman Boye Architects are the causers of this blissful Vega Cottage standing on the island of Vega in the Norwegian archipelago not far from the polar circle. “The site is distinctive for its grand and harsh northern landscape with wide panoramas of the Norwegian Sea and the jagged mountains rising from it,” said the architects.
It’s worth to name it “Lost and found”, because it’s a place with wonderful surroundings that will definitely “found You”, despite how deep You were lost. The View from the huge windows is the best cure for Your inner peace.

Plane house – on the hillside of Skiathos Island
Natural materials are used here, in ultra-modern Plane House. The infinity pool isn’t placed only for the view, it is also one of a number of passive eco features which serve to keep the house cool. It has what is known as a zero-edge meaning that the water is at the same height as the surrounding decking. This allows the sea breeze to glide over the pool’s surface undisturbed, in doing so cooling the house.
Features like this as well as the cantilevered roof which keeps the living space in shade do a lot to effortlessly cut down on the need for air conditioning. Plane House also benefits from solar panels and makes use of grey-water in its irrigation systems. But the view from the window greeners Your mind like no one.Photography by Yiorgos Kordakis
Hen House – remote eco home in Fiscovaig
Rural Design Architects are Gods in making sustainable shelters. Their Hen House has ultra-efficient personality, because it never asks more for heating than £40 a month. Why? Due to the level of insulation while the specially designed tapered shape and the expansive south face window passively heat the home.
