It’s a bit tricky sometimes to choose a site for a new house. The views might be beautiful but they can’t always highlighted so before they bought this site in Särö, Sweden, the owners of this house wanted to make sure they could make the most of the location. The end result was just as envisioned: a beautiful house that opens to the views. It seems that everything is mirrored in the case of this residence designed by MU Architecture in Canada, everything except for the views that make each space feel like a natural part of the landscape, like an extension of the panorama that can be admired through the floor-to-ceiling windows on the ground floor.
This forest house is located in Mar Azul, Argentina. It was built by BAK Architects on a site full of challenges. The owners wanted it to be away from the sea and the populated areas so it can serve as a private, intimate and remote refuge. At the same time, they wanted to be in contact with nature and the landscape. To these requests the architects responded with a single level design for a structure that has a concrete shell and vast openings. It sits on a flat section of the site and it offers uninterrupted views of the surrounding landscape.
This house from Brissago, Switzerland looks incredibly simple, like a concrete monolith with cut out windows from place to place. It looks as if it’s been on that slope all along and only recently carved into a home. It’s a great look managed by Wespi de Meuron Romeo Architects. Because it sits on a steep slope, the houses has the entrance on the top floor and the parking lot up on the roof level. Its raw concrete facades are minimalist and intriguing and the interior matches this look.
