The single-family house rises from a 10-20m wide and 90m long lot in Laax, Switzerland. Local building legislation only permitted the construction of volumes aboveground at opposite ends of the property. One end of the area is situated in the “village zone”, while an “agricultural zone” surrounds the other end. Two completely opposite worlds form the context of this house.

The building site is located halfway between the traditional village centre and the “used to be” traditional vineyard area of Balatongyörök, Hungary. Currently this hillside is almost empty and the property is involuntarilly becoming a focal point of the surroundings.
“We had a chance to create a house that could send a message to the future investors of the area. Whisper something about simplicity, calmness and local values.” – Attila Béres says.

This family home is an example of a modern design filled with natural light and building blocks comprised of sustainable material – in this case wood, one of the if not the most strategic material of Slovenia. It’s definitely not a typical prefabricated house out of catalogue as we tried to develop a residence that meets the needs of modern users while having functional floor plans and contemporary elegant exterior all appropriately settled into its landscape.

This is a house for a family of five in the inner city suburb of Grey Lynn, Auckland. The empty site was purchased on the edge of Grey Lynn Park steeply rising from the street in an east-west direction leaving the long boundaries with north and south aspects. The brief was for a family house to span the evolution of the family from infancy to teenage years.

Salvatierra 150 is a multifamily housing project, located north of the city of Mérida in the state of Yucatan, in a triangular ground of 68.50 meters in front, which houses 13 housing units interconnected spatially in the set.
The project starts from the study of the spatiality and shape of the terrain, resulting in an axial scheme, where the elements are ordered from a vertical axis, horizontal or as in this case, both. These are organized from a series of blind walls, which are rotating, as a response to a corner work, sunning and ventilation, generating two facades that change as they go around the building and together with the generated rhythms of spans and massifs, give dynamism, movement and character to the building.

This is an old house renovation project. The original building was an early-style two-story house built over two decades ago. It is located in a rural area surrounded by vast sugarcane and rice fields. A tributary of Chianan Irrigation runs through the front of the building. In the back lies a folk religion temple with a good number of followers.

This detached house is located in Punta Canide, Oleiros, in the Bay, with stunning sea views. Due to this location, the building should respond to some very specific buildable constrains and setbacks, required by municipal regulations, as well as the morphology of the land itself, which required adapting to the slope of the plot, with a drop of nearly three metres. We also searched for the best orientation to promote the best views of the building sight.
Three materials are the absolute protagonists of this work, concrete, wood and glass.

The House R is located at Anglet on an estate of 1000m². The relatively large dimensions of the plot (50x20m) give a horizontal lecture to the field which compose the start of the project. The North-South orientation, the sun path and the pre-existing houses around the site were also predominant data for the design of the project.
The house is set back from the street, clearing a parking space for three vehicles.

The terrain of 1347 square meters located in the city of Cajamar is inserted in one of the regions of greater natural diversity of the state of São Paulo, the region of the Japi mountain range.
The surrounding Atlantic Forest reveals an enormous natural complexity with the abundance of species, forms and colors, exposing a system in balance and very delicate. Thus, the conceptual motivation of the project was to represent this stability through the balanced composition of two blocks with divergent directions, colors and textures, but with identical formats.

The defining concept for this house, commissioned by a photographer as both his summer house and studio, was based on developed facade studies which define a simple and smooth building skin varied in height and punctured by openings.
Two volumes define the main living & work spaces, both converge to the North corner freeing up as much space as possible on this small lot and turning all window openings to face South and West. The main space is compressed at the entry and releases up towards the landscape, the fan shaped plan gradually provides more floor area, volume and light. The second volume is exclusively dedicated to the owner’s studio. All rooms and bathrooms are reduced to a bare minimum and provide maximum surface area to living and work spaces.
