Werner Sobek a Stuttgart-based design studio has designed the project Haus D10. Completed in 2011, this single-storey contemporary home is located in the town of Biberach an der Riss, Germany.
According to the architects: “A private driveway provides access to the contemporary German house. Two parallel shear walls are a distinguishing feature of the building. Generously designed glazing serves to provide a spatial enclosure. Protected by an extensively projecting flat roof a generously sized patio encircling the house serves to unite the indoor space with the outdoor space. Access to the building is also gained via this patio.
“The living areas are located on the ground floor, whilst the ancillary rooms are housed in the basement. The contemporary German building is adjoined on the north side by a double-garage, which can be accessed directly from the basement. A stairway in the living room provides access inside the house.
“The contemporary German property is one of the first buildings in the world in which the Triple Zero ® concept developed by Werner Sobek will be fully implemented.”
Bruce Stafford Architects an Australian design studio has completed project G House. Completed in 2010, this three-storey contemporary home can be found in a residential suburb of Sydney, Australia.
According to the architects: “A typical eastern suburbs harbour view site; long, narrow and sloping away from the road toward harbour and Manly views.
The contemporary Australian house is set lower than the road with living spaces opening back toward the street, a lightweight timber screen filters street views and creates privacy, yet allows light and ventilation to the private living spaces. The contemporary Australian house has two living areas; the primary living level opens out toward an elevated view and the lower living area flows out to a pool deck and private courtyards.
“The sleeping level is positioned on the top level, providing privacy, quiet and commanding views. Our primary design generator was to link vertical and horizontal circulation through double and triple volume spaces and a dialog of floating planes and connected textural elements. Finished such as polished concrete floors internally and externally, tinted concrete bench tops, raw basalt, timber and steel are assembled in a contemporary composition to facilitate easy living and a seamless flow between inside and out.

A lot of people will say their favorite room in their home is their bedroom. And their favorite piece of furniture in their bedroom? The bed, of course! It’s where we rest and reset. Where we dream and allow ourselves to completely let go and just be. Our bedroom’s decor is a reflection of our ideas on comfort meeting style. At ROOM SERVICE we draw inspiration for our beds from all over to give you options to make that ideal space a reality. These two new designs, while different from each other, are full of style and ready to set the stage for your most personal space.
The ST. TROPEZ in a pale Aqua Blue velvet.
With an impressive 72” headboard and graceful sides, this bed not only says style, it gives a real sense of being somewhere special. Upholstered and hand tufted in a soft, smooth velvet, set on a platform frame and finished with polished chrome feet, this bed combines classic style with a modern clean feel.
The ROOSEVELT in Orange Calvin.
The look and feel of this bed is both sophisticated and fun. A 48” tufted headboard and the clean lines of a modern platform frame combine to create the look of a proper bed, while the bold orange color and texture of the Calvin fabric add style and dimension. It’s a design that brings all the best details together in one simple statement.
Both beds are offered in Queen and King sizes, and in many different fabrics. Please be in touch with any of our sales staff to see the unique options available to make your bed your own.
We recently created our super popular SINATRA Sofa in a custom size and wanted to share, and hopefully inspire.
This custom Sofa was made an additional 6″ higher around the back and arms, making for a more wrapping feeling when seated.
At ROOM SERVICE it really is all about the client and making their space and furniture fit them, like a glove. We know that the furniture we have in our homes are not just random items, they are pieces that we treasure. They say things about us without us having to say anything at all. And just like people are unique, so are spaces, and we take both into consideration. Maybe you have a very large space to fill and don’t want lots of pieces cluttering it. Maybe you are a more petite person and want a sofa that doesn’t make you feel like you’re being swallowed up. We are here for you! Keep this in mind when you browse our collections, and please contact any of our sales associates to see about making a piece that’s a perfect fit for you.
Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects (SAOTA) and OKHA Interiors teamed up to create the Nettleton 199 house, which is located in Clifton, Cape Town, South Africa, Africa’s most popular tourist attraction.
SAOTA and OKHA were commissioned to create a home that maximized the connection with the view and the sea, as well as a garden that connected to the mountainside, while minimizing views of neighboring buildings.
The result is nothing sort of spectacular! Complete with sliding glass doors, homeowners have the ability to seamlessly bring nature’s elements into the interior spaces. Decorated to reflect the light, airy atmosphere many natural elements are used such as wood, glass, and African artifacts.
