This wonderful house not only has spectacular outdoor spaces, but its interior is a combination of spaciousness, simplicity, and good taste. It has an outdoor terrace, decorated and furnished for the enjoyment of its residents, as well as a swimming pool.
This project concerns the expansion of an already-existing home. It consisted of a generous plot of land atop which a 100 square meter house was located. The home had a basement, a ground floor, and first floor, and an attic.
This home, located in the mountains and surrounded by thick vegetation, was designed by the architectural firm ARKITITO Arquitetura in 2014. It covers a ground area of 260 square meters and is located in Condomínio Serra dos Cristais, Fazenda Velha, Cajamar, which is 45 kilometers north of São Paulo, Brazil.
A view to the ocean is definitely one of the most relaxing things there is. To see it, smell it, hear it, creates an ensemble of sensations that fills us with relaxation, especially for those of us who happen to be sea lovers. For this project, one of its most striking features happens to be just that – its spectacular views over the ocean.

This small construction located in the town of Fermanville, on the west coast of France, more specifically in the Cotentin region, where waves of Vikings landed in the 9th century, was refurbished by the architectural firm FREAKS Architecture in 2017. The structure previously functioned as a concrete fishing shack built in the 50s on a rock on the beach, facing the sea. Its dimensions and ratio are exactly the same as Henry David Thoreau’s log cabin in Walden – 3 meters per 4 meters, coming a grand total of 12 squared meters, which makes it a tiny space to hold a home.
