The Tree Villa perches on the cliff of a 160 acre hilltop ‘treesort’ property surrounded by a meandering river landscape. The idyllic setting in Tala on the West coast of India, is a stone’s throw away from the Kuda caves. Nearly 20 centuries ago, Buddhist monks instinctively understood the qualities of this meditative landscape and made the hills their home. The Tree Villa was conceived by Architecture BRIO as a celebration of this landscape by creating a series of blurred transitional spaces with different levels of transparency and openness within this forested tropical setting.

Palm Beach House project is the transformation of an existing waterfront holiday villa in Palm Beach, Sydney. The project is a restrained approach to a traditional European vernacular, exploring bespoke quality detailing, materiality and architectural framing.
With the existing house ineffectively dealing with scale limitations, the brief was primarily to explore how we could reintroduce a higher quality of spatial resolution. The plans and volumes were subsequently rationalized around better circulation, view corridors and access to the water.

The stretch of land along Turkey’s Mediterranean coast that forms the modern city of Antalya has a long history of being a multicultural seaport. Though not formally organized as a true city until around 150 BC, the area was occupied and under the authority of great societies like the Hittites and Persians for nearly 2,000 years beforehand. As Alexander the Great moved east against the Persians and towards India, his armies took all of Anatolia, beginning the heavy and long standing Greek influence in Antalya. After Alexander’s death, his empire was notoriously divided amongst his four generals, leading to the establishment of the Kingdom of Pergamon in Asia Minor. One of the rulers from Pergamon’s Attalid Dynasty, King Attalus II, saw promise in the area and formally settled the city–hence it being named Attaleia in his honor–and making it the main base for his navy. Soon, the city was absorbed into the Roman Republic as part of their governed region Pamphylia.

On a typically small site wedged between the road and the river this house in Kyoto is a kind of European canal-house in Japan. It is close to the city center but in a quiet street near cafes and restaurants, bakeries and a chocolatier. The museum district (with temples and shrines) is a short walk, and there are many cherry trees lining nearby streets.

The surrounding of the site located at the foot of the Hanareyama, overlooking the landmark of the region in north orientation, shows the spread of the trees grown up in years. We tried to produce an architecture with the dignified presence, which has both free spirited and subtle quality- by placing a one-storied house maintaining a low building profile that dynamically extends in east and west orientation with sharply extending eaves on the building for exaggerating the horizontality against the surrounding landscape with bold yet delicate vertical quality.

It is a villa built in the mountains of Kirishima famous as a summer resort with rich natural hot springs. A spectacular view over Kinko Bay and Sakurajima spreads beyond the south slope. In order to make use of the superb view, we adopted a structure in which the approach level floats as it is against the slope in order to make the viewpoint higher than the grounding property. Also, in order to preserve the natural topography, I widened the jumping part and reduced the ground contacting surface. Horizontal line floating in the vertical line of trees is the essential point of design, finish the roof of the horizontal plane and the floor board white, and the vertical elements such as pillars are made to release concrete with texture. It is an image that the floor board and the wall board protruded from the wall of the concrete piercing the slope.
