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.

Cornerstone 1-532 is a project designed by Leehong Kim Architects in 2012. The home is located in Seoul, South Korea, and covers a total ground area of 330 square meters. It is situated on a site bordered by a high end residential area to the north and a commercial area to the south.
The building is a four storey mixed use building, with a commercial space on the first floor and spaces to be used as artist studios or private residences on the remaining floors. This design allowed the architectural firm to expand the original plot site of 165 square meters and take advantage of the space to the utmost of their ability.
The structure presents a curved façade on one corner, which aids in the internal distribution of space, as it saved the architectural firm from having to partition the interior housed by the cylindrical shape. This first level interior is visible through the clear glass walls that line it, which serve to blend the boundaries between indoors and outdoors, and facilitate the communication between the two environments.
The entrances on the Southeast and Northwest of the building differ by nearly one floor, which creates an interesting discrepancy on the outer structure of the site.

The GCP Wood Cabins Hotel was designed by the French architectural firm Atelier LAVIT, which is based in Paris, in 2017. The eco-hotel covers a total ground area of 300 square meters, and is perched on the shore of Lac de la Lionne, part of a fishing reserve in Sorgues, a commune in the Vaucluse department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region in southeastern France.
The hotel is composed of ten suites, which are designed to resemble primitive reed buildings, floating on the water like rafts or stilt homes. The way the wooden structures are constructed, with vertical beams for walls, allows a degree of privacy that is matched by the protection they provide from the sun and the wind.
The landscape of the lake and the surrounding vineyards provided a challenge for Atelier LAVIT, and so they chose to allow nature to remain the protagonist of the project, creating architecture that would leave as little footprint as possible.
The project was largely built in a wood workshop, a process that took three months to complete, and later assembled on site. This facilitated the architectural firm’s attempt to affect the landscape as little as possible, as it reduced the local time and efforts of construction.

This new multifunctional space transformed an empty building, located in the grounds of an old sewing factory that operated in the Soviet era, into an urban space. In it, they created a platform for young and free artists to create, share, implement, and execute new ideas.
The ingenious people behind the idea were the architects Giorgi Sakvarelidze and Devi Kituashvili, belonging to the architectural firm MUA. The project was carried out in the 2017 and has an area of 7600 square meters. It is located in Tbilisi, Georgia.
The concept of the Soviet design style is maintained, but it is modernized both inside and out which makes it more attractive and interesting. The space consists of three distinctive building blocks, which form a rectangular-shaped courtyard.
FABRIKA Tbilisi is the space for socialization, inspiration and collaboration, where you can implement new ideas, get to know artists and their art, have interesting conversations with foreign travelers, and connect with free and rebellious people.
It consists of the following spaces: art shops, studios, rehearsal studios, shared work spaces, cafeterias and bars, hostels, artists’ residences, galleries, and other public spaces. The place will be a daily destination for those who wish to create and share, those who love freedom, and those who are open to new ideas and inspirations.

These wonderful offices offer their employees warm environments in which to work and give free rein to the imagination. They have been designed by the General Design firm in the hands of its main architect, Shin Ohori, in the city of JINGUMAE in Tokyo.
The space, owned by every day is the day, a creative agency that was founded in 2017, has wide open spaces in which the green of the plants, as well as the wood that has been used in its furniture and in some elements of its construction, is a common detail in each of its spaces.
It has 200 square meters and its distribution allows the personnel of the company to congregate and participate in various tasks, while allowing natural communication. The design team eliminated the finishes of the ceiling and floor present in the space, in order to expose the raw concrete structure of the 50-year-old building.
No walls or fixed partitions are found throughout the interior, which is filled with soft natural light. All the objects in the office, including abundant vegetation, antique sofas and a large oak table, are intended to improve creative communication.

This single-family house, located in the Province of Girona in Spain, was designed by the local architectural firm Lagula arquitectes in 2017. The project, which occupies approximately 300 square meters, was under the leadership of architects Antonio Alonso, Martín Ezquerro, Ignacio López Alonso, Marc Zaballa, and Manel Morante.
At first glance, its columns and white walls contrast beautifully with the blue sky, inviting us to enter and enjoy its wide and illuminated spaces bathed in natural light. The wide glass walls reveal two private side patios. These diagonal openings in the wall extend the view through the main structure, connecting it to the landscape.
The richness of space is enclosed in traditional austere materials. The walls are regularly blank. As it happens in modernist houses, there is sometimes a minimum of glazing between the openings in the wall.
Its high concrete ceiling adds to the home’s abundant elegance, making it look flamboyant.
The architecture of the house is perfectly adapted to the place and the land on which it is located.
In the back garden, we find a huge swimming pool that invites us to refresh ourselves in those days of terrible heat, surrounded fantastic views over the green areas that envelop the home.
This extension was made for an old house belonging to a family that grew in size and who preferred to expand their current home instead of moving out. It was carried out by the architectural firm replus design bureau led by its professional architects Khrystyna Badzyan and Dmytro Sorokevych.
Located in Lviv, Ukraine, the construction has an area of 360 square meters distributed in its 4 levels. By adding the extension in the interior courtyard, the architects divided the house into two separate sections.
The house that was previously built, following the principles of traditional architecture, should be open to space and nature. For this main purpose, huge built-in containers for plants and large trees, were placed on the first floor and on the second floor terrace, near the glass to be fully connected to the interior.
When choosing materials for decoration, the architects preferred only raw and natural materials.
Since the clients had to leave the house during the reconstruction period, the architects faced the main task of carrying out the project in a few months. So they decided to use a thin and lightweight prefabricated frame for the main construction. This could be mounted quickly and allowed them to work during the cold season, which was just the time of year in which the project was carried out.

This modern house, with lush and green outdoor spaces, has been designed by the firm RS Sparch by the hand of its architect Rena Sakellaridou in the city of Athens, Greece.
The area, which has 240 square meters, is hidden behind a garden with a dense collection of trees. It is formed by a concrete base, a white metal structure, and a characteristic tunnel-esque structure, which houses the rooms. The opening on both sides of the interior allows views of the garden to flood the interior.
The program is simple: living room and kitchen on the ground floor and two bedroom-suites on the top floor. There is also a gym, a guest room, and a service room that are located in the basement.
This is a house in a secret garden, a house in its own world open to nature, although surrounded by the dense urban fabric of Athens. Hidden behind the trees, the house integrates into the garden; its its colors, its shadows, it all changes over time.
The two main levels are connected visually through a glass floor, while a skylight at the top brings natural light.

This project is based on the need to create a new connection between the bedrooms of an existing house, as the structure only allowed some rooms to be access by going through others, which kept the owners from inviting guests, as this distribution prevented them from preserving a modicum of privacy.
The initial project also included a new independent space of two levels that worked as an apartment with living room, bedroom, bathroom, and a small kitchen.
The most viable solution was to create a curve that connects the old house and the new space, forming a new circulation, a route that is compressed and expanded as one moves through it. The intersection of this line with the preexisting one provided a lateral access to the residence and, therefore, some internal changes in the layout of the bedroom and the bathroom that were completely reformulated. Here, locally produced materials were used to remodel it in a contemporary way.
It is located in the Valle de Bravo, State of Mexico, Mexico in a beautiful natural environment, and covers an area of 58 square meters.
The architectural firm LANZA Atelier was in charge of the restructuring, and the architectural team was made up by Isabel Abascal, Alessandro Arienzo, Alejandro Márquez, and Jessica Hernández.

This modern restaurant with serene and elegant ambiences is located in Lisbon, Portugal. Its purpose is to pay tribute to traditional Japanese cuisine, a purpose that falls on the shoulders of passionate chef Takashi Yoshitake, who puts all of his care into his work each and every day.
Designed as an intimate and minimalist space meant to function as club-restaurant and sake bar, it uses sliding panels and translucent fiber screens for greater flexibility and privacy.
Those responsible for carrying out this special project were the architects Paulo Martins Barata, João Luís Ferreira, Paulo Perloiro, Pedro Appleton and João Perloiro, belonging to the architecture firm PROMONTORIO, who in 2015 got down to work and developed a fantastic project in the available 120 meters, full of professionalism and good taste.
The green bamboo marble countertops, the wall cladding and the display shelves are combined with the exposed kitchen areas in glass, hand-made tiles and mirrored glass partitions. The custom furniture is also in solid walnut with leather upholstery, as well as in the large central table and Japanese style floor chairs.

D’Entrecasteaux House is a private residence designed by the Hobart based architectural firm Room11 Architects in 2016. The home is located on Bruny Island, which is part of Kingborough Council, in Australia, and covers a total ground area of 220 square meters.
Bruny Island is characterized by its vast and beautiful landscape, surrounded as it is by the D’Entrecasteaux Channel, which separates it from the Tasmanian mainland. A remote location, being only accessible by boat, Bruny Island is a traditional holiday destination for those who call Hobart home.
The clients are a professional couple who approached the architectural firm after purchasing the land with the intention of commissioning the construction of a permanent residence. They already had experience with the island’s climate, as their family members own adjacent properties, so that they were aware of the fact that the architecture had to reconcile their desires to have a home that was luminous and that enjoyed a good view with the need to be protected from offshore winds and glare from the water plane of the channel. Additionally, the remote nature of the home meant that it needed to be solid and contained in order to counter its isolating effect upon the human psyche.
