House L, southern The Netherlands – 27 Aug 2013
Design: Grosfeld van der Velde architecten
photo : Marcel Briaire
The ground floor was raised with respect to the current ground level, with large glass surfaces positioned to look out over the rural landscape and terraces running the length of the building with an unbroken roof surface on corbelling, all of which allow the outer space to be experienced to the full. At the same time, the large roof projections are designed to prevent too much light entering.
House GEPO, Wijgmaal, Belgium – 27 Aug 2013
Design: OYO – Open Y Office
photo : Tom Janssens
The garden is the living room, the small lake the bathroom. The kitchen you’ll find next door. OYO chose for a minimalistic approach, omitting fancy details. There is no need of ornament. This and others choices result in a low budget home that sticks perfectly to the basic idea of living, functioning very open minded.
House in the New Forest, Hampshire, England – 20 Aug 2013
Design: PAD Studio, Architects
photo : Nigel Rigden
The ‘New Forest House’ is set within a stunning 18.5 acre plot, located adjacent to ancient woodland and heath, in the New Forest National Park. The new building has been carefully conceived in order that the proposals minimise the impact on the site and its sensitive surroundings.
House on Rue St-Christophe, Montréal, Quebec, Canada – 9 Aug 2013
photo : Adrien Williams
This project was done in collaboration with the client who wished to build his own home. The site is located in a back alley of Montréal’s Plateau neighborhood and the design reflects the patchwork of extensions and renovations typically found in Plateau alleyways. The constraints of the site called for a house that was built upwards versus outwards. Four boxes clad in different materials are stacked one on top of the other.
H House, Sóskút, Hungary – 5 Jul 2013
Design: Budapesti Mühely
photo : Tamas Bujnovszky
The 3 hectares site is located 20 km from Budapest at the end of a small village. The 196 sqm building stands on the edge of the flat part of the land facing to the forest on the sloping part.
House in Parque Leloir
Ituzaingó, Buenos Aires, Argentina – 29 May 2013
Design: Vanguarda Architects
photo : Eugenio Valentini
On the house side, from one of the lot’s fronts, access is gained to the garage, which is hidden from the garden behind a stone wall. The garage is directly related to the kitchen/dining room, to serve as an extension for large meetings and connecting it to the service areas. After this is the sitting room, completely made of glass to integrate the garden to the interior and enjoy the views onto the pool.
House in Altos del Sol Closed Neighborhood, Ituzaingó, Buenos Aires, Argentina – 28 May 2013
Design: Vanguarda Architects
photo : Luis Abregú
The house, developed in one floor, combines the different rooms inside an architectural box made of stone walls, masonry and glass. The front contains the first stone volume, which includes the master suite. A horizontal glassed window located at the floor level, de-materializes this stone wall and connects the master suite with the exterior. A large projecting roof shelters the pedestrian access, re-created with a cut on the roof and a double parking space.
House in Nova Lima, Minas Gerais, Brazil – 28 May 2013
Design: Denise Macedo Architects Associates
photo : Gustavo Xavier
The house should harmonize two important needs: large area in brickwork walls for the exhibition of the arts, and facades with glass so that the external landscape could be seen in the House. Thus was created a gallery of 14 meters deep, and double height of 6 meters high, offering a display area of 190 square meters. The wall of the left side of this photo gallery has allowed the creation of a 28 meters long ramp, promoting movement surrounded by valuable works of art and the extraordinary landscape.
House eR2, Zapopan, Mexico – 27 May 2013
photo : Ivan Esqueda
The design concept was to take advantage of the views from the residence to the eucalyptus forest that is adjacent. Three slender concrete slabs help form rectangular volume of the building. The living spaces sit above ground to allow a better view of the treetops, and to slot the garage in.
House in Meran, North Italy – 24 May 2013
Design: monovolume architecture+design
photo © M&H Photostudio
The project M, a residential building in the centre of Meran, is embedded in the quiet area of Obermais. The concept of the design was it to play with transparent and solid surfaces what fallows fascinating insights and outlooks. The interior melts together with the outside space. The terrain flows through the building and finds his renewal in the pool- and meadow area. Because of a refined external design and the arrangement of the pool, lawn, garden and house the whole concept seems like a unity with seamless transition.
H3 House, Athens, Greece – new photos – 22 May 2013
Design: 314 Architecture Studio
photo from architect
Located on a plot of 7000m2 the total area of the house is 1000m2. The house was designed to give a sense of balance of the water element and the owners love for yachts, which after all was the inspiration for this project. The contact of the house and the artificial ponds that surround it, create a cooling sensation.

Design: 81WAW.PL Architecture Studio
render : Michal Nowak
Two architects from architecture studio 81.WAW.PL designed ground-floor house, which plan is based on letter “L” and has 250 square meters of usable area.

To communicate inside, family members need to walk through a hallway located along a longer building wall.
House of Silence, Shiga, Japan – 21 May 2013
Design: FORM + Kouichi Kimura Architects
photo : Kei Nakajima
This house is austere and quite impenetrable – the facade materials give it a heavyweight appearance and there are minimal openings. You could say it is an unfriendly building, but inside there are a variety of strong interlocking spaces making for a dynamic introverted architecture.
House in Bozen, North Italy – 20 May 2013
Design: monovolume architecture+design
photo © M&H Photostudio
The project M2 is classified as a ‘Klimahouse A’ – an elegant contemporary residence up in the Italian Alps, with generous glazing to the obligatory pool.

Haus W, Frankfurt am Main, Germany – 14 May 2013
Design: Ian Shaw Architekten
photo from architect
This well crafted cuboid generates spectacular light. The development, constructed out of prefabricated high insulation timber panels and energy-efficient glazing, is articulated as a classic modernist intervention: a box set into a traditional pitched roof atop a standard three-storey house.
House by the River, Bosque de los Dinamos, México – 25 Apr 2013
Design: José Alfonso Quiñones Ríos
photo : Erick Reyes
The Magdalena River descends from the forest of Los Dinamos, and is the last living river in Mexico City. This location and the proximity to the river give very specific characteristics to the land, despite the fact that it has been overtaken by the city, it still preserves an immediate country environment.

Design: SAOTA Architects
photo : SAOTA

Sae Min Oh – BANG by MIN emerging design group
photo : Joonhwan Yoon
9 Jan 2013 – Located at the alley of Seongbuk-dong where community of village has formed for a long time, ‘H-House’ is a house to keep the meaning to show the virtue secretly. This house reveals itself without clumsy and stimulative feeling in the scenery of old alley, suitably for its name.
Head Road 1816, South Africa – 22 Nov 2012
photo : Adam Letch
The clients required a four bedroom home for their young family, the design of which had to encapsulate all the qualities of luxury open-plan living while still providing a homely environment. The practicalities of the site – steepness and town planning restrictions – were key initial drivers in determining the parameters available.
House O, Potsdam-Mittelmark, near Berlin, Germany – 19 Oct 2012
Design: Peter Ruge Architekten
picture © Werner Huthmacher
The site lies upon a hill in a beautiful small village in the district Potsdam-Mittelmark in a fantastic scenic situation with breathtaking views over the nearby lake. The surroundings are dominated by a combination of historical and modern mansions. As many of the old large trees on the site should be kept as possible.
House in Asamayama, Nagano, Japan – 23 Oct 2012
Design: Kidosaki Architects Studio
photo : 45g Photography
This is a bold new Japanese house that juts out over a steep slope. Many houses lie parallel to slopes to capture views from a long elevation, typically from a relaxation area such as a terrace, lap pool or balcony. The architects here have thrown convention out the window and decide to twist their house and push it out into the air, an unusual step.

Design: ian moore architects
photo : Daniel Mayne
This project is located in Mosman on a north facing slope looking across Sydney’s Middle Harbour to the Spit Bridge and Clontarf. The site falls away dramatically from a broad and densely landscaped verge on the street frontage, with a high sandstone cliff forming the southern boundary.

picture : Hiroyuki Oki
Established in 2009, a small group of designers wishes to bring their conception of life to the surroundings by architecture. “Every morning, the first thing that I would like to have is drawing first lines in a comfortable and joyful mind. I used to dream of an office-house for not travelling in a frequent traffic-jam and highly polluted place like Hochiminh City.
