The VILLA VINGT is anchored on a sloping site next to the ski resort Le Relais. The upper ground offers a magnificent view of the Laurentian hills and Lac-Beauport’s residential area. The project builds on the existing foundations of the client’s home in order to retain some acquired rights. The owners know the site’s qualities very well for having lived there many years.

The spatial structure of this project is based on how to combine an umbrella-like roof towering over a pool resembling a bowl. These two elements look roughly alike in plan as well as section.

Who hasn’t imagined sometimes with living in a dream place with wonderful views to the Mediterranean Sea? How many people would love to build their dreamed home in a natural environment five minutes from the beach? Moreover, how many people would desire to go for a walk through the corridors of their new home even before it was built? “Villa Larus” fulfills all these wishes as if it were a magical genius from stories like “The Arabian Nights”. More than that: it’s already a VReality.

Between city and nature, between fast and slow. The Oriental Garden, located in the Overseas Chinese Town, is the first villa area in Shenzhen and witnesses this modern city’s 30-year developing history from a fishing village. With low density and high greening rate, the Oriental Garden is endowed with the feeling of withdrawing from the city. The designers of Co-Direction have always been living and working in this area, they have a special emotion for this project. Combined with oriental context and contemporary design, they transformed the old house into the chamber space. The space environment, light and quality make people feel peaceful, the “quietness” in the noisy downtown is just the expression of the space. The slow lifestyle in the space has taken root in the fast pace of the city, which has spacious space and transparent green.

Cabo de vila is a house for a young couple that wanted a house that doesn’t look like a regular house. When we first meet the place for the house, the approach to the location give us the central mote for the project. We wanted a shape that can fill the void left by the valley and at the same time we wanted this new shape to embrace and reflects the surrounding green areas giving its users a special perspective on the landscape.

The villa was built in the ’90s. Its floor plan presents very particular proportions: a 15 metres long entrance hall which leads inside the house and a linear perspective view opening up to the garden.
The parcel shape is a narrow rectangle and one facade, which is built straight on the very limits of the plot, is blind.

The forest at your feet. Opposite the beautiful Boswachterij nature reserve in Dorst, a mere stone’s throw from Breda, a new residential area of the same name is being built. On the north side of the area, on the edge of the forest, are five lots designated for private development.
The key starting points for the design of this villa were the natural setting, the relationship with the forest and a timeless, minimalist design with warm materials and first-rate detailing. In addition, the villa was required to be energy neutral and a home for life.

For a new part of Assen, a city in the north of the Netherlands, architecture firm Mannen in de ruimte has developed a house with a distinct roof.
The clients asked for a house adapted for living at an advanced age that would fit their triangular shaped plot of land. They had realized that a traditional rectangular house would not work at this location. Nevertheless they did want a house the way a child draws a house: with brick walls and pitched roof.
