Created for a young married couple, this bright 105 square metre home interior is situated in the PIRS residential complex, Minsk, Belarus. Visualised by Zrobim Architects, the main concept for the interior was to maximise permeability of light and space. Only a small WC gains no access to natural daylight, whilst glass partition walls share the resource between all other spaces, including two bedrooms. This transparency also creates a connectivity between each area: the hallway trickles openly into the kitchen diner, the kitchen diner attaches with the bedrooms, and the master bedroom flows seamlessly into the ensuite bathroom, which results in an easy flow for relaxed modern living.

Located in a condominium in Guarujá, on the coast of São Paulo, Brazil, Casa NK is designed by the Rua 141 and Zalc Arquitetura, two architecture firms, which proposed a structural project highlighted by structural balance into volume harmony on both sides. Photography by Fran Parente.

.

Built to be home to a family, the house was meant to be a place of refuge close to the city of São Paulo. There was nothing built on the land, which allowed for freedom to design, on a 525m² (5,651ft²) plot – the house built-up area is 400m² (4,305ft²). The plan was to make the most of natural lighting, cross ventilation, and the presence of nature inside the house.

The project accommodated five suites, swimming pool, gourmet area, kitchen, home office, living room and service bedroom, and was divided into two floors. Upstairs, there are intimate rooms, and on the ground floor, there are social rooms. Upstairs, there are suites and the intimate living room, and on the ground floor the other areas, in addition to the pool and the SPA.

The suites were ornamented with large openings facing the linear terrace with a pergola. In the bathrooms, skylights were designed over the countertops to allow for natural lighting to enter and reduce the use of electricity. A large internal space houses the double height and provides room for the circulation that connects the suites on the upper floor.

Living room and dining room double height improved air circulation in those areas, illuminated by the large openings and the skylight on top of the stairs. An axis was created where outdoor and indoor areas meet, the linear pool belongs to the garden and, at the same time, it is the setting for the living room, by creating a pool lane that is both covered and uncovered. The same was done on the opposite side, facing the street, where the garage is covered by the cantilever slab.

The aim was to integrate internal and external environments, and the separation between them on the ground floor is almost imperceptible. The vertical garden, made of the house structural pillars, brings nature to the gourmet area and the covered pool area.

The texture of natural elements in the furniture, such as wood and straw, make up this rustic and tropical setting. Choosing to place Spanish Stones in the external area was key to allow for thermal comfort, as well as, rendering a more rustic aesthetics to the house.

Gardens were also created on the roof of the first floor to bring thermal comfort to the environments on that floor. By means of landscaping, tropical species were placed in the house, with variation of textures and green tones, surrounding the entire house, which increased thermal comfort. For this reason, garden slabs were created on the upper floor, a green wall and climbing plants were placed opposite the home office. Solar panels were used for heating water, their surplus heat used to heat up the pool and the SPA.

Lone Madrone is a project designed by Heliotrope Architects ocated on a rocky, wind-swept south facing shoreline; this retreat home nestles into the landscape to harmonize with its surroundings and minimize exposure to weather. Photography by Sean Airhart.

.

The home is a vacation retreat for a family of four, who desired a low-impact home with strong connections to land and sea. The design solution utilizes a simple ‘wedge’ shape geometry, mimicking the hillside slope beyond, and is tucked into a natural depression in the shoreline to diminish its visual impact. Living spaces open completely on north (garden) and south (water) sides via a custom lift-slide door system. Bedrooms focus primarily on the more private, forested slope to the west and the kitchen opens onto an adjacent a rock promontory to the east. Due to the extreme weather exposure of the site, major openings are paired with rolling wall panels to protect them from punishing winter storms, as well as to provide security when unoccupied. The finish palette consists of local materials including Douglas fir (floors, trim), western red cedar (siding, walls, and ceiling cladding) and Pacific madrone (furniture).

The site is within the San Juan Islands National Monument, with extremely sensitive shorelines and marine environment. A clear understanding of near-shore ecology was essential to the design of the home. To avoid habitat loss for near-shore insects, a critical food source for endangered juvenile Chinook salmon, a garden roof seeded with native, drought tolerant vegetation has been utilized. This assembly replaces over 90% of the vegetative footprint lost to construction. With shallow soils, disruption to natural storm-water flow is also a critical issue. Poorly filtered runoff from roofs and other hard surfaces are a major water quality issue in the Islands. Our drainage design captures runoff along the up-slope footing and disperses it in an un-concentrated 1/1 ratio just downslope of the structure, replicating as closely as possible the pre-construction runoff condition. Lastly, the firm worked to satisfy the program requirements as efficiently as possible to minimize structural footprint and massing. The result is a 3-bedroom, 2-bath home that feels much larger than its modest 1,600-square-foot size would suggest.

Whilst modern architecture no longer relies upon the arch to support the load of larger buildings, this Roman feat of engineering remains one of the most iconic structural developments. This architectural discovery may be thousands of years old but it has become a design element to span the ages. The revered arch has undergone a rebirth in today’s modern interiors, reinvented as an elegant style piece for any and every kind of room. When it comes to the aesthetic of the arch, we’re spoilt for choice with style adaptations from the classic Roman and gothic arches, to keyhole, Morrocan and Turkish twists in structural and decorative form.
