Grace Santorini Hotel & Villa by Divercity & Mplusm

 
September 6th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Divercity & Mplusm

This 20-room hotel (a joint project between Divercity and Mplusm) is carved into the cliff-face 300m above Santorini’s volcanic caldera. The understated design allows this extraordinary landscape to take centre stage. The hotel provides a contemporary interpretation of vernacular architecture: economy of space, radical simplicity, and organic forms.

ZINC HOUSE in Lymington, England by OB Architecture

 
September 4th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: OB Architecture

We were given the kind of brief most young aspiring practices dream of: to design a contemporary house in a wonderful location overlooking the sea. The twist here was that the house had to be highly accessible whilst avoiding the ‘institutionalised’ feel that many homes for people with impaired mobility occasionally suffer from.
