Family Villa XL is located on the outskirts of a new residential area and it is designed for a large family of seven. Area is dominated by typical Slovenian urban / rural landscape, that is why the design paraphrases the surrounding typical architectural elements . The house is conceptually formed from two mutually parallel volumes and one connecting volume, which is placed perpendicularly to the other two. All the volumes are elongated with symmetrical gable roofs. Shortest volume is extended into a roofed carport.

A Calligrapher handed three books to his wife, she placed them in a random stack on the table… “We want The Books House”… they said.
The Architect understood that the books were not only a reference to a home he had previously designed named The Six Degrees of Separation, but also to the ledges and shelves of Sydney-Hawkesbury sandstone outcrops that surface on the steep escarpments of the northern side of Sydney Harbour, including the block of land owned by the Calligrapher and the Businesswoman.

The well-preserved gardens of the 17th century Villa Favorita, lining the shores of Lake Lugano at the foot of Monte Bré, are of great historical significance. The 13 romanticist buildings situated in the gardens were erected between 1687 and 1932. Their historicizing style is characteristic of Ticino architecture and, in fact, generally of the villas on the lake shores of northern Italy. Originally, the Villa Favorita was a freestanding, single ensemble of buildings between Lugano and Castagnola. Today it is surrounded by modernist blocks of housing from the second half of the 20th century. This modern architecture, is also a typical Ticino style, that emerged in response to the appeal of the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland as a second home and a financial center.

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.
