The good orientation and the view across the city of San Sebastian make Marichulegui villa a privileged place to live.
The house places, almost instinctively, the main spaces oriented diagonally looking for the sights to the Concha bay which are encased between two neighbour villages. To place the maximum possible number of spaces whit this condition, leads to group, apparently in a disordered way, tightening in the narrow front of the plot, as if they were the heads of a children group that who want to look through a little window at the same time. So, the interior space keeping its fluid and unitary condition, creates various areas where the nearest references disappeared in favour of the far sight.

“We are not saying that This house is 100 percent Thai, But at least it’s a try”
LSR113 is situated on Bangna road, Samuthprakarn, Thailand, on the lakefront plot of private housing property known as ‘Lakeside villa’. The house is built as one-family house which provided a flexibility to be expanded into multi-family for the future. The briefs that designer received from the client was for functional spaces like any normal house, though what they really liked were square, modern style house, but they asked that it should not be hot inside and has to suit with Thai Climate. Even though the usable space of the land is limited, but the client still wants a large greenery area to enjoy, as well as a modern house with sun shades and rain protections. This is the most challenge part for the designer, who has to configure the modern language of architecture in a way that would suit the hot and humid climate of Thailand.
At ARRCC we create considered and engaging interiors at the leading edge of design. Working closely with our clients, we distil and transform their briefs to exceed original expectations. We believe in life-enhancing spaces that reflect both client and location, and through our refined approach to design, have developed a style focused on detail and substance.

Villa K, located in Thüringen, is the first German project for Paul de Ruiter Architects. The realization of a sustainable villa, discrete and integrated in the natural environment, was the wish of the client. The result is a straightforward, but innovative residence built from only glass, steel and concrete.
This unique residential home was built on a very long and very narrow plot of land at the foot of the Swabian Alb, Southern Germany. The idea of the design by Anna Philipp was to sort the property’s extreme proportions by using three lines: a tree line, a water – and an art line. In turn the art line divides the building into a horizontal public space containing the areas for living, cooking and eating, and a vertical, private area with a library and office providing the family with an opportunity to retreat. The family’s great passion for art and graphic design, which is a central design theme throughout the entire house, gives it its own special expression. Thanks to the professional light planning the entire home is staged by directing both the daylight as well as the artificial light. Therefore the daughter enjoys producing her own works of art sitting at the dining table, underneath the “Zettel-lamp” designed by Ingo Maurer.
Villa Altona is located in Törnskogen, in the municipality of Sollentuna, Sweden. The site is steep with a height difference of nine meters between the ground floor and the street level.
