This fantastic villa of enrapturing interiors is located at the edge of the Tramuntana Mountains, overlooking both the sea and the famous nearby island of Ibiza, from its perch on the island of Mallorca, Spain. It dates from 1986 and has been designed with the unique Mallorcan style. The exterior and interior design are inspired by the natural vegetation surrounding the area, flush with pine, almond, orange trees, and lots of cacti. Colors and materials are raw and evoke the earth.
This luxurious 6 bedroom villa is the perfect mix of traditional Mallorcan design — with natural stone and terracotta tile — and stylish Ibiza accents of white built-in furniture, beautiful lighting, and a relaxed environment. With stunning forested views extending to the sea, Villa Son Font is the ultimate Mediterranean hideaway, where you can slow down, enjoy nature, and relax in a calm and comfortable setting with family and friends.
In its design we can clearly see how the old and the new complement each other in such a way that they create a cozy and pleasant space that invites you to relax and enjoy it.
The interior designer Bente Tang-Henriksen was in charge of the design, and worked alongside Mikkel Tang-Henriksen.

This project was carried out by NONG STUDIO architectural studio and led by Chasing Wang, Neal Zhu, Luca Lannote (Italy) and Kunyang Wang in 2017. It has an area of 180 square meters and is located in Suzhou South Rd., Huangpu District, Shanghai, China.
If we follow the history of Shanghai, an important point for its inhabitants is the Suzhou River. Industrial buildings along the river have witnessed the prosperity and decline of concessions, as well as the emergence of national industries. This space used to be the private granary of Yuesheng Du before ultimately becoming the warehouse of the Commercial Bank of China.
Its façade and its interior space have been restored in such a way that it respected its history, integrating itself with the modern elements. This allowed it to demonstrate its intimate connection with the past.
In terms of functional design, the space was organized according to the level of privacy or efficiency, which is common in the design of traditional offices. And it was organized according to the possibility of interaction.
When design can tell the life and experience of a person, it is already a search for the emotional essence.

With an area of 290 square meters, this unique house was built in a wooded area of Douro-Dummer, Ontario, Canada that has fabulous views of an absolutely breathtaking lake. The authors of the design, the architects Julia Jamrozik and Coryn Kempster, challenged the abrupt topography of the soil on which this peculiar construction is located.
This vacation home consists of two volumes stacked one on top of the other. The lower volume huddles in the landscape so that you barely see it when you approach the house. The upper volume rests on the lower one, as well as on a concrete pier to form a bridge and a cantilever. This concentration strategy allows for greater access and permeability of the site and emphasizes the charged relationship between the building and the land.
The upper volume contains living spaces and opens onto the lake, while the lower volume is more closed and houses bedrooms. Responding to the need for accessibility for guests with disabilities, as well as thinking about the ability of customers to use the building in the future, a study/bedroom mix and an accessible bathroom are provided on the main level. The roof of the lower bar becomes a terrace that allows elevated views and a direct connection to living spaces

PV Cabin is a private residence located in Pinto, a town and commune in Ñuble Province, in the Biobío Region of Chile. It was designed by Lorena Troncoso Valencia in 2016, and covers a total ground area of merely 24 square meters.
The clients for this cabin are a young couple of climbers who love participating in rock sports, so they chose an area of Chile known for its mountain range landscape. The problem of the structure’s limited space was solved by building in a vertical manner, so that the space was expanded with a double height. In this way, all needs — sleeping, eating, cleaning, and some room for leisure — were covered.
The home is located in a small clearing at the end of a winding and wooded road, and is surrounded by lush trees and backed by a high wall of grey rock, and it is raised on wooden piles one and a half meters above the ground to avoid contact with the snow in the winter season. This privileged location ensures sun, ventilation, and plenty of natural light for the home.
The ground floor of the home holds the kitchen, dining room, and a working area; the bedroom sits upstairs.

This cozy restaurant called “Kadeau” is located in København, the native name for Copenhagen, Denmark, and was designed in 2015 by the design firm OeO Studio, inspired by a deep passion for the country’s landscape.
For this project, the members of the firm tried to immerse themselves in the universe that surrounded the restaurant, which lead them to maintain many hours of dialogue with the head chef and his team to create a shared understanding of the driving passions behind Kadeau. The design was not only about creating a physical environment, but also about using it to shape the atmosphere of the restaurant and complete the dining experience.
The culinary roots of Kadeau Copenhagen are found on the small Danish island of Bornholm, in the Baltic Sea. The love of Nicolai Nørregaard for his small native island, which is full of coniferous forests and surrounded by sandy beaches, is evident in everything the restaurant does. Dining at Kadeau is an immaculate and sophisticated experience that consists of celebrating the smallest details, a universe where guests feel they are dining at home with their dear friends.
For its design, OEO Studio left no surface untouched. All materials, colors, and design solutions used have been carefully designed to create the right feel, atmosphere, and sense of place.

This holiday apartment is located in an old fishing village in Camogli, a famous holiday destination near Genoa, Italy. It has been designed by the Italian architectural firm Gosplan in 2017.
It is located on the first floor of a tall structure, in a typical Ligurian building, on the edge of the historic center of the city, and with an open view to the sea, so that its interior is bright and enjoys an abundance of natural light.
The house is arranged around a large living room with two windows open towards the horizon. Behind a gray wall there are two bedrooms, connected to the living room by two doors that were part of the original structure and were repurposed. The other two sides of the living room are surrounded by a large white L-shaped cupboard that contains all the facilities of the house: a guest closet, a toilet, a bookcase, a pantry, a fridge, an oven, and a cellar.
This solution allowed the architects to free up the living room of all the technical furniture, which is usually found in the kitchen area, arranging it behind a variable sequence of doors with hinges made with white vertical planks.
The original wooden ceiling was brought to light, restored and painted white to highlight the brightness of this space.

Located on the edge of the mangrove swamp of Puerto Morelos, just 50 meters from Cancun, an area especially known for its fabulous beaches and resorts, in the Riviera Maya, Mexico, this house is surrounded by lush vegetation, typical of location. However, with the height granted by the project to the house, when you go up, you will see the sea, so the views will evolve from floor to floor: from the intense green, to the clear blue of the sky and the water. Does not this sound wonderful?
The project, carried out by the architectural firm Eduardo Cadaval & Clara Solà-Morales and with the collaboration of Juan Carral, Eduardo Alegre, Nora Sevilla and David Vázquez, was carried out between 2014 and 2017 and has a total area of 280 square meters.
The architectural project wants to reinforce the neutral identity of the house towards the street and prevent openings, while concentrating all the magic inside.
The construction and finishes of the house seek to be as austere as possible, using simpler construction techniques, such as load-bearing walls. Everything is painted in a continuous color. In the end, it is the space, with its opening to the mangrove, to the sea, to the vegetation and to the white light of the north, the main protagonist of the house.

This boutique café is the second designed by the firm Studio Adjective, an architecture and interior design agency in Hong Kong, for this franchise. The project was personally led by one of its designers, Wilson Lee.

This beautiful house, surrounded by thick vegetation and with the calm waters of the bay as the only companion, seems like something out of a tale.
It is located in Wroxham, Norwich, United Kingdom and has 165 square meters of construction. The firm responsible for carrying out the project in 2016 was Platform 5 Architects, located in London, United Kingdom.
The new design by Platform 5 Architects replaces an obsolete bungalow on a promontory of a secluded lagoon in Norfolk’s stables. The design of a new building for the plot offered the opportunity to improve the environment by establishing an elegant counterpoint to neighboring houses of more traditional design, respecting the peaceful location. A key objective was to create simple and contemporary living spaces in the center of the house that are well oriented to benefit from the views of the surroundings. The property is also available for vacation rentals.
Each space has a carefully thought-out design and carried out with built-in furniture to set the stage for family life. A palette of materials in soft tones is used in each of the spaces, where a range of colors and textures creates a cozy but variable atmosphere.

This unique and modern project covering 121 square meters has been created by the architectural firm Wutopia Lab in the city of Gu Long Lu, Minhang Qu, Shanghai Shi, in China.
Among the architects responsible for this project we will find Erni Min, Ting Yu, Wutian Sun, and Chloe Zhang. This project of reconstruction began in 2017, and the result is this fabulous space that lends itself to the whim of its owners. The designer decided to convert three bedrooms and two living rooms into one bedroom and one living room, so that parents and children could grow up together, thus creating a shared and open home.
To maximize the lighting area, the windows were changed and replaced with panoramic views.
The free flow of space created by breaking down the walls of separation naturally forms three social areas, where each member of the family takes what they need while sharing the same world.
The use of simple materials such as glass, wood, ceramic tiles, cloth, stone, vegetation, and stainless steel helps express the features of the space. Considering the safety of the child, all the corners of the wall have been rounded. By using a large number of smart devices, all appliances can be remotely controlled, adding a futuristic touch to the house.

Slow House is a private residence designed by the South Korean architectural firm KDDH, which is based in Seoul. The home was completed in 2015, and covers a total ground area of a little over 100 square meters. It is located in Janghyeon-dong, South Korea.
The home sits on a street 8 meters wide, facing the foot of Mt. Hwangbang, which is expected to suffer a high amount of traffic. As a result, it was necessary to create an architectural design that would ensure and preserve the privacy of the residents. In order to do this, the architectural firm separated the private areas from the public ones. The inner part of the house is divided into three sections — a family area, an area for the children, and an area for the parents.
The lowest part of the house holds a kitchen, a dining room, and other areas where the family might spend time together. The upper level has a series of rooms, all quite small, but each with a differently shaped ceiling, which creates a sense of dynamism that adds character and a touch of fun to the interior. A low corridor creates a division between the spaces designated for the children and those designated for the adults, the latter of which are located in the highest point of the structure.
This villa, with an area of 142 square meters and whose purpose was to be used as a space to share with friends and family in a relaxed atmosphere, is located in Iran. It was redesigned in 2015 by the architectural firm ZAV Architects under the leadership of Mohamadreza Ghodousi, Fateme Rezaie Fakhr-e-Astane and Soroosh Majidi.
The project was defined with some main strategies: rehabilitate the villa with technology and local workforce while also maintaining the existing structure, integrate the open and closed spaces as much as possible, with the flow of air from the garden to the most intimate spaces of the villa. Apart from all this, it was important to incorporate shades and colors into the geometry of the villa.
The interior of the villa was designed entirely in white, imitating the sensations of a temple that reinterprets some of the Iranian architectural principles.
The building consists of three interrelated spaces on two levels. The entrance on the north side of the villa leads to an open space full of light and shadows.
The ground floor rises through a staircase to the space where there are two wide steps that function as resting platforms, on which one can lie down and spend some time relaxing.
This imposing construction of high concrete walls has been designed by the architect Cherng Yih Lee, who works for the architectural firm FORMZERO, in the city of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The home was completed in the year 2017 and covers an extensive area of 900 square meters, distributed across its three levels.
It is located right on the edge of a reserved forest, perfect for those who like to enjoy the outdoors and nature. However, one of the points on which its designers focused was avoiding, at all costs, that the existing windows became the most direct element with which to define the relationship with the outdoor space. When a house is surrounded by other houses, the relationship is immediately blurred by dropping a curtain. The question was … How to restore that relationship with the outer space without compromising the necessary privacy inside?
From east to west, this house is wrapped in an additional layer consisting of a wall of perforated concrete that looks like a shell. In addition to acting as a thermal protection with cross ventilation, the carapace is the first layer to control privacy. Between the house and the concrete framework, several levels of landscape are inserted to create an ambiguous condition that makes the landscape look more like an interior space.

This 1,500 square foot multipurpose barn project in Ancram, New York, USA, was completed in 2017 by the architecture firm Worrell Yeung Architecture, under the direction of its architecture professionals Max Worrell and Jejon Yeung.
The space is located on the side of a 30-acre property, with an existing traditional house and other structures. This modern barn adopts an unmistakably contemporary design approach, while incorporating elements of the Hudson Valley agrarian lifestyle. The general shape of the building is clean and simple, and its volume is a single and discreet structure of gable roof that sits on the hillside. The retaining walls create a playground between the barn and the house.
The barn has parking capacity for two cars, along with a garden area and a flexible and covered outdoor room. This space has large gates that strategically frame the views of the Berkshires Mountain. Inside, the prefabricated wooden scissor frame structure and the wooden frame are exposed.
The selection of materials everywhere was made to be durable and low-maintenance, given the climatic zone. The roof is made of black metal and the exterior is covered with hemlock wood with vertical black spots, while the interior is covered with the same natural wood.
