The „Yellow leg“ apartment building is located in Šnipiškės neighborhood, on the side of Vilnius city center. The building is on a 1697m2 lot, with its footprint occupying 707m2. The area is a perfect combination of living in an affordable area that has less crowded surroundings than city center, and being able to enjoy all the things that city center has to offer within reach.

Located on a steep and technically challenging site in West Vancouver, the Sunset House is designed to capture immediate views of heavy marine traffic and the open sea to the west.

This is a student house located in the center of Porto city. The experience of construction workers permitted the development of good level details of construction, even using the simplest materials. The building has a total of four floors: the basement, the ground floor, the first floor and the attic. In the basement is where the community areas are: two kitchens, two bathrooms, a storage space and a technical area. Within the main kitchen, there is an informal living area that – with the help of the backyard garden – offers a continuous space, for social student gatherings.

This residence is a modern interpretation of St Tropez living. The contemporary, rectilinear, cubic design was carefully considered to blend in with the more traditional residences that are prevalent in the area.
