This is view from one of the cantilevered cabins that architect Snorre Stinessen built for an island resort in Norway. Several such structures were built on the shore, with areas that extend outwards over the water. Also located in Norway, this summer house designed by Marianne Borge and Kjetil Saeterdal manages to somehow make its inhabitants feel like they’re outdoors when they’re actually inside. It’s all about the openness of the spaces and the fact that the house has huge panorama windows.
A small plot isn’t always a problem for an architect, especially in crowded cities where such challenges are quite ordinary. When asked to built a house on a narrow and small site in Kyoto, Japan, Atelier Boronski knew exactly what to do. The team managed to give their client the perfect home, exactly as expected: a 230 square meter house on three floors, squeezed between the road and the river.
High ceilings are quite dramatic, allowing for all sorts of eye-catching interior design strategies to be used. At the same time, a high ceiling also means that there’s a possibility to have tall windows that go all the way up, like this residence that architect David Jameson designed in Maryland, United States. With stunning full-height glass walls that define an entire facade and even wrap around the corners, this residence gets to offer unobstructed views of the gorgeous landscape that surrounds it. It’s a house designed by REX and it’s meant to serve as a shared home for three generations.
Instead of transforming the landscape, this house in Wicklow, Ireland, embraces the site and its slope with its sculptural form and eye-catching design. It’s a house designed by ODOS Architects with cantilevers and bright spaces that open to the landscape and invite the outdoors in. Every project has its own set of challenges. In the case of this home in Chile, the challenge was to position it at the center of the plot and to give it the smallest possible footprint and a low height. Mobil Arquitectos came up with the idea to shape the house like a croissant and to give it large windows and glass walls so it feels open and connected to the exterior.
