This house, built in a contemporary style, has been designed for a modern family in the city of Oltaszyn, a district on the southern outskirts of Wrocław, Poland, by the architectural firm Marmur Studio.
In recent years, this area has experienced rapid growth. This first manifested itself as a luxury neighborhood of single-family homes, later transformed to include numerous low-intensity apartment complexes. This is possible because, although the history of Oltaszyn goes back to the Middle Ages, the area was almost completely destroyed during World War II and did not redevelop until only recently.
The ground floor is designed to provide an easy transition from one side of the house to the other. Immediately after entering the house there is a panoramic view of the garden. The first floor serves as the living room with an entertainment room. The design of the children’s rooms was a crucial feature; each one has a loft and is well lit. The family bathroom is spacious and has a sauna that also has a door to the terrace. In the same fashion as the living room and dining room on the ground floor, the entertainment room also has sliding doors in the courtyard to provide an unobstructed view of the garden.

This wonderful house with concrete walls is located in a development north of the metropolitan area of Mexico City in Mexico. It was designed in 2018 by the architectural firm Jorge Hernández de la Garza under the direction of its magnificent professionals Jorge Hernandez de la Garza, Alin Gamboa, Miguel Angel Loyola and Octavio Alvarado.
The land on which the building is constructed is a sloped area full of stones. The architectural project was carried out in three levels, with the environments being distributed according to the needs of the client. The first semi-fitted level is where the bathrooms are located; the second level is the garden, as well as where the public spaces of housing are located; finally, the third seems to float above the rest of the volumes.
At the bottom of the land next to the garden, a 15-meter-high stone wall rises and was the perfect setting to direct the interior views of the house to the immediate surroundings. The general volume is presented with two different intentions. On the one hand, on the front façade, a series of overlapping boxes with minimal openings are erected in order to provide as much privacy as possible; on the other, on the rear façade, it was sought to give the greatest possible transparency to the great stone wall.

This home in the old Xuhui residential district of Shanghai in Leshan Road, China, has come to life after the fabulous renovation that was completed in 2017 thanks to the architectural firm FANAF. The project manager, architect Xin Jin, managed to create a small and cozy home space in only 31 square meters. Not only will the couple live here, but they will do so with their 51 cats. Yes, you read that right: 51 cats!
To begin the project, the designers lived with the clients and their cats in the space for a whole day. The unique experience allowed designers to understand the customers’ lifestyle needs and areas of concern by sharing a small area with so many cats. Through this experience, the designers identified that the room lacked separate areas. The living space of the couple was completely occupied by cats, which caused inconveniences to the owners.
The magnitude of the problem meant that it was common to find cat hair in kitchen utensils and sleep with more than a dozen cats at night. The owners did not have a place to relax alone and the guests could not sit and enjoy a conversation or stay for long periods. In addition, to prevent the cats from escaping, the windows were constantly closed, which meant that the room did not have adequate ventilation.

Upon laying eyes on the modern interior of this renovated apartment that they are standing in an old building from the 20th Century. This is thanks to the extensive remodeling work that was undertaken largely during the 80s, where the building was completely refurbished.
The apartment is divided into two different levels: the first, an ordinary residence area; the second, a scarcely-used terrace area above the first, where an informal storage area was built. The intervention reverses the detachment between these two levels and attempts to unite the internal and external areas of the apartment.
The architectural firm Arriba, under the direction of its architects José Andrade Rocha and Filipe Ferreira, was in charge of carrying out the 115 square meter project, which is located in Dom Vasco, Lisbon, Portugal.
The proposal reorganizes the spaces of the apartment, empties the terrace, and uses the height of the roof of the uninhabited attic, exposing the structure of the roof and the atmosphere of an old building. The social space now includes the kitchen, while the private spaces meet at the back of the apartment.
The wooden staircase is the organizing element: an integral piece of the apartment that establishes the entrance, the kitchen, and the living room, giving access to the terrace that overlooks the river where you can enjoy the sun.
This house, occupying a space of roughly 360 square meteres, appears strong and rough on the exterior. However, its interior surprises us kindly with a set of wide, bright, and warming spaces. It is located in Sanfins, Portugal, and the design was made in 2017 by the architectural firm Pedro Henrique.
Located in a rural context, but close to the historical and central center of Santa Maria da Feira, the project is developed from the recovery of an existing stone house and the construction of a new concrete body. These two structures are interconnected by a wooden structure and wide openings, merging as one the interior and exterior.
The entrance of the house is the central and intermediate point of distribution that relates the two floors. The upper floor, dedicated to the private spaces of the home, we can see two areas of differing make: the first space, of concrete walls, consists of the children’s bedrooms and bathrooms, whilst the second space, of stone walls, consists of the parents’ bedrooms. Meanwhile, the lower floor is destined to all the social areas and bathrooms.
Inside, we are surprised by the materials with which it has been designed, we can observe a simple white color on the walls and floors, accompanied by a wooden ceiling. This creates a unique contrast full of elegance and warmth where simplicity is valued.

Located in Grandola, Alentejo, near the Atlantic coast in Portugal, this wonderful house was designed in 2014 by the architectural firm PROMONTORIO, led by its team of professionals Paulo Martins Barata, João Luís Ferreira, Paulo Perloiro, Pedro Appleton and João Perloiro. The home covers a total ground area of 436 square meters, with closed spaces on one side, as well as a few openings that offer a high degree of privacy and seclusion and on the other. Common areas with visually linked spaces flow freely through the serenity of the inner glass patio.
Its structure, based on the idea of a central courtyard, which is the main source of light and shadow, is inspired by Portuguese rural settlements known as “mounts”, which were generally located in dominant places of the landscape and formed by groups of volumes located informally around a patio that offers views that intersect in the surrounding landscape of the oak fields; a contemplative framework that, once again, creates an emphatic contrast.
Around and against this cutting space, the adjacent volumes add the most private or service functions of the house – bedrooms, bathrooms, the kitchen, the pantry, and storage — while the interstitial spaces between the volumes generate the social areas, namely, the living room and dining room and the study.

The architectural firm Abscis Architecten designed in 2017 in the city of Ghent, Belgium. This office building that has an area of 1094 square meters. The building is a solid volume of brick characterized by volumetric incisions and strategically located windows.
The front façade opens on the ground floor through the lobby to the street, and receives visitors through a front courtyard. This provides great visibility and transparency. On the back façade, both the writing rooms and the offices enjoy a beautiful view of the garden with old trees. Special attention was paid to sustainability in terms of the use of water and materials, energy consumption, and sustainable techniques based on renewable energy. All insulating materials are sustainable.
It has two waiting rooms adjacent to the writing rooms designed in an open plan. The patio works as a structural element to create privacy without removing transparency. The concept of the interior was to show simplicity and tranquility.
The white lobby on the ground floor is clearly presented in the open parking lot and welcomes visitors through this entrance.
The landscaping sensation of the garden was maintained by conserving the valuable old trees and reinforced by the placement of hedges that make up the parking lot.

Located in Mexico, a country known for its delicious food and famous tacos, this restaurant has become a gastronomic reference when it comes to enjoying the local cuisine, not only for the quality of its ingredients, but also for its service and friendly atmosphere.
It has been designed by the architectural firm Esrawe Studio, with the experience of its excellent team, made up of the architects Héctor Esrawe, Javier García-Rivera, María Santibáñez, Aloisio Guerrero, Alessandro Sperdutti, Daniela Pulido, and Federico Stefanovich, who, in a space of 240 square meters, designed this fabulous restaurant-taquería in the busiest street in the city, Avenida de los Insurgentes, in Mexico City.
In 2017, the brand began an expansion process and opened a new restaurant in this new location, in which El Califa establishes the guidelines for its evolution as a brand, revealing a new interior design and identity.
Esrawe Studio found its source of inspiration in the tortilla and its variants. Tortilla has been an important part of the lives of people in Mexico since pre-Hispanic times, when the locals used corn tortillas as a dish, as food, and as utensils. Today, everyone finds ingenious ways to use it, creating a personal touch in the way of preparing, folding, and holding a taco.

These luminous modern offices were originally work areas where there was no natural light, and which were populated by very dark rooms. As such, one of the main motivations for the project was to transform it into open rooms where light fills each of its spaces.
The architectural studio SABRAB lead the project, and was responsible, in 2017, for carrying out the radical change suffered by this office area, located in Lisbon, Portugal. In an area of 108 square meters, the architectural firm intended to create several areas that could meet the needs of the company: two offices, a meeting room, and an open space with a common work area and a technical and printing room.
Being a company based on creativity and the development of new ideas, on the exchange of knowledge between its employees, and on the search for new solutions, the firm created a play area that could provide a relaxed atmosphere. In this room are a pool table and a ping pong table, which also allows the possibility of becoming a larger worktable.
In order to break the square and regular shape of the office plan, uneven geometric shapes were created that now define the meeting room and the two work rooms.

This fabulous house, the exterior of which is made mostly out of concrete and glass, has been designed by the architects Kate Fitzpatrick and Benjamin Stibbard, part of the team at the architectural firm Auhaus Architecture. The home is located in the city of Torquay, in Australia, and it covers a total ground area of 341 square meters. It was completed in 2015.
The material with which the design was made was dealt with in a very natural way, accepting both its inherent strengths and shortcomings. The control of innate imperfections to the material was abandoned, leaving the surfaces untreated. Paired with natural hardwood, the house is elementary and raw, but nonetheless warm and inviting. In short, it is the perfect home for a young family.The site is narrowly bounded on both sides by volume building houses.
The design itself is simple: a procession of spaces into which visitors enter from the street through a portal in the concrete wall. A small green courtyard is the starting point, an anteroom to the softer interior parts of the house. Upon entering, the house opens into a double-height gallery, with glass on one side to reveal the large central courtyard.
This apartment with a stark industrial style is located along the Regents Canal in Islington, London, England, in the United Kingdom. The project consisted of transforming an old family home into a contemporary home, which would be energy efficient and have comfortable spaces.
The architect Nicholas Szczepaniak, from the architectural firm Nicholas Szczepaniak Architects, was in charge of the project, which was completed in the year 2017.
The project consisted of a complete remodeling of the three-story property, which covers an area of 163 square meters, including the replacement and expansion of an existing conservatory on the roof to transform it from an unusable storage room into a contemporary living space that can be used throughout the year — and with an outdoor terrace to boot.
The approach all across the project was to use materials of moderate price, and to add value through meticulous and elaborate details and care during the execution.
Inspired by the old industrial use of the building, the palette of materials incorporates raw and uncovered finishes, such as the original concrete, which contains the marks where the walls were located while the building was used as a factory. In contrast to this, elements such as the kitchen and accessories are done in warm colors and with a texture to create a unique palette of materials and, as a result, a contemporary and cozy atmosphere.
