The architecture of this private house is a synthesis of natural materials, such as stone and wood, and simple geometric shapes. The façade’s modern design combines stone and wood: the exterior finish, featuring warm shades of travertine and larch, completes the image of an inviting, cozy and modern country home.

Under the rapid urbanization, cities in Vietnam have diverged far from their origins of being low density tropical green spaces. Newly developed urban areas are losing their connection with nature. “Bamboo House” is a small residential project in a narrow alley called “Hem” in Ho-Chi-Minh City. This project aims at developing the concept of “House for Trees”, a series of a prototypical housing design that targets to provide green space within high density neighborhood.

Located in the city of Jundiaí, the residence designed with the purpose of sale, had as a goal the optimization of the cost and the time of execution of the construction.
The unusual height of 3.80 meters from the ground floor brings comfort to the social areas. A large skylight over the wooden staircase complements the natural light from the ground floor and offers lighting to the rooms.

Superhouse is a brand and an ethos – a vision for what is possible in contemporary residential architecture. Superhouse want to create nothing but the 30 most exceptional houses in the world for the super-rich.
Superhouse has been created by Magnus Ström, founder of Ström Architects, based on the South coast of England. Inspiration for the Superhouse concept first came when Ström worked next to a world-renowned naval architect. This was when Superyachts were first brought to his attention, and it raised the questions: “Why couldn’t houses also reach the same heights of design quality and workmanship?” and “Why do ‘Superyachts’ exist, but ‘Superhouses’ don’t?”

Cocooning means to be really at home, without any need to go away or to take a trip, or to made a vacation again and try to escape from your day life for a while.
You love your everyday life, your rituals, and the place where all that happens.
This means the everyday real luxury.

A property of great dimensions and a steep slope, grants us unmatched potential views towards the north of the city. A grand golf club in the foreground as well as other green areas of the city, are topped by the majestic “Cerro de Las Mitras”, a distinctive mitre-shaped mountain. The residential scheme is resolved in a linear way on its three levels, ensuring all areas of the house enjoy the previously described views.

Comprised of perpendicular bars atop a hill overlooking the village of Healdsburg, this home offers both ample social space ideal for entertaining and the privacy of a rural retreat.
The taller section runs along the ridge of the hill and houses the home’s great room under lofty ceilings and a simple shed overhanging roof, filled with light and views let in through tall glass walls. Four oversized glass panels open dramatically on each side, transforming the space into an outdoor pavilion whose flush concrete floors extend into a poolside patio to the north and into a terrace featuring a fire pit to the south to offer comfortable outdoor areas for both hot and cool weather. With these doors drawn up, the site offers one sweeping, continuous view from the pool, through the great room, and down into the distant village below.
