The 19th century building rests on a hill in Crucoli, a small Italian hilltown above the Ionic Sea. The old quarry stone house is squeezed into the organic urban structure and sits right on the steep edge of the hill. This specific situation provides the house with a terrific view into the Sila mountains and defines the spatial layout. So technical improvements went together with the reorganzation of rooms.

Boutique resort and villa design developments on the island of Bali are well-known for their extravagant attempts to stage a lush tropical getaway embellished with reproductions of craftsmanship associated with the exotic ‘Balinese’ atmosphere. Against this backdrop, D-Associates’ pursue of a humble sense of home away from home in Bali is a rare undertaking. The brief is simple, to design a villa for an extended Indonesian family in Sanur, one of the most iconic Southern Balinese settlements and the island’s most established tourist destinations. Not dealing with the Western world’s imagination of a somewhat ‘Balinese’ exoticism, here we are encountering a more subtle appreciation of the calm tropical landscape of Sanur. The villa is envisioned as a family retreat set in a tropical landscape, a contrast to their Jakarta living, while learning from a particular aspect of spatial configuration of Bali’s indigenous dwelling architecture: an emphasis in breaking up the volume of a house and in blurring the inside and outside spaces.

The plot is sited on one of the five Kharkiv hills among low-rise development with village-like parceling and scarce apartment houses that emerged here at the turn of the xix-xx centuries. It is located right in front of the central hill, with a railroad running along the valley between the hills. The place enjoys a generous view of the city centre, as well as the nearby church.

This is a residence and atelier for a couple in the center of Tokyo. The building area is small, because of its size and flag shape. It needed to design the house using effectively height direction, so we designed the house as a bookshelf. The floors like bookshelf plates are placed at the different level in the deformed box. And furniture is put on the each shelf-floor to create living room, dining room, kitchen and bedroom. In the big volume, floating life places expand with 360 degree view. Life places are connected each other in and out of shadow varying distance in tree dimension. This means life places are opened planar and cross-sectional, while they are divided. Concerning structural aspect, each shelf-floor is hooked up to the shelf-frame, which composed of columns and beams three-dimensionally. This structure system gives latitude for space composition. And the shelf frame works not only as the structural parts but also as the fixture supporting life places. On one place it is used as handrail or threshold, on the other place it is used as book-shelf or wardrobe. The way of using depends on the situation. Lightings hung from top of the box till the each floors to illuminate them such as a floating stage. The daily life itself is stored on a small residence like big furniture.

New York-based architects SOMA delivered an outstanding private residence located on the north side of Jouneih Bay, Lebanon.
It is a significant milestone for a project whose design plunges into the sea, Calypso hovers over the water like a crystal emerging from the rocks. Nestled on a small strip of rugged rocks between the main road and the sea, the form of the house is derived directly from this ragged landscape.

HG House is a house on the beach for my parents, for them it was very important that the house could receive all the family and guests and also to function at a reduced size when they were alone.

This project takes part of a personal exploration where different blocks and the vacuum generated between them are the protagonists.
The volume was proposed as a large white box that has been excavated and within which appear different “buckets” with various materials (wood, exposed concrete, etc.).

Perimetro is the title of the space created by the young team of architects ZOOCO. A real home in a space of 36 m2.
The project is an open space with a clear and concise geometry, which is transformed into a living space by the compression and the expansion of bands that run around the perimeter. These elements provide it with spatial tension, configurig the necessary circles to accommodate a house in its minimum expression. The scheme is very clear, “full” in the perimeter as a server space and “empty” in the center, as an habitable space. Each wall has a goal and a function by creating one central stay where life carries out. The surface of each wall show outgoing and incoming stays getting the different scenes of daily use. In a panoramic 360 ° from left to right we found: rest area, formed by a wall that connects the sleeping area and the rest area; the bathroom, with a wall of an urban environment; the kitchen and the dining area, where you will find everything you need to use; and finally, a green area with aromatic herbs that allows to disconnect from everyday life and enjoy of an exceptional area.

On a site near the railway line, this single-family house is built in a volume whose geometry follows the alignments of the plot. Under a simple programme, the Project is divided into two floors where common areas are separated from rest areas. The daytime units are located on the ground floor linked to a pool and perimeter garden on a wide terrace presided by the projection of the main facade of the house.
