Form must be forceful. If not, it’s not form.
A double-storey volume of exposed concrete is embedded in the rock generating a cantilever that occupies a whole floor in the form of a wooden base.
Raw concrete, natural wood, black metal, water, rocks and vegetation are the only elements.
The crystal pool seems to float in the same water it contains. There are no windows, just the absence of walls.

Dwelling in Sertãozinho-SP, Brazil built through the “Minha Casa Minha Vida” program, offering attractive financing conditions for low-income families.
The rough, sturdy exterior of the stone contains and protects the preciousness in its interior. By closing itself to the street, the building conserves in its center what in it exists of most valuable, the void. The patio here plays the role of an articulation element and stage for everyday life. The existence of the central space as an event and nucleus of spatial organization is an incentive to the encounter of people and collective coexistence.

The villa is situated overlooking the river Hollandse IJssel. The riverside has been kept transparent to maximise the view, the dyke side has a more modest, closed character to guarantee privacy. The house refers to the neighbouring houses in the original ribbon development in terms of form but has a contemporary character with minimal details and rich colours. The copper roof and bricks have been chosen in the same shade of redbrown color to make the whole appear as one volume.

Villa N1, designed by Jonas Lindvall of the Swedish multidisciplinary design studio Lindvall A & D, is a single-family summerhouse located on the west coast of Sweden. It is situated in an area that was once a popular holiday region, but is now inhabited all year-round. Drawing on the vernacular of the region, which is renowned for its wooden barns with horizontal planks, the 190 m2 single-storey house is built entirely of wood, including the façade and roof.

The Poorkan villa used to be an abounded building. Our clients (Mojdeh Ghodousi and Ali Kamran) decided to build a villa on their inherited land. Instead we encouraged the proposition of renovating the existing building on the on.
We intended to recycle the space, in order to bring it back to the cycle of useful, contemporary spaces.

Prior to its reconstruction, this house from the 1920s was a romantic ruin surrounded by authentic and new-built fragments of ancient Augusta Traiana and rather isolated from the contemporary city, yet in its very center.
The intervention continues the game of time offsets and brings the design to a contemporary interpretation of the avant-garde, at the time the house was built.
A new volume of white concrete complements the structure and the program of the old house. The composition of the openings, the ambiguous elements of the addition and the materiality blend the two distinctive entities. The space of the new stair and its design bring light into the center of the entire composition. The new glossy white concrete slabs integrate and conceal all the contemporary technology of the house.

There are no words to define the concept of Nirvana, a mental state with effects in the physical and spiritual planes. This makes it difficult to explain and only those who practice meditation can understand how far they are from reaching it.
