The Mirrorhouse is a private residence located in the Trousdale Estates of Beverly Hills, a city in Los Angeles County, California, in the United States. The home was designed by XTEN Architecture and completed in 2016, covering a total ground area of 8,000 square feet. It enjoys an incredible view of Downtown Los Angeles, as well as the Pacific Ocean.
The challenge presented to XTEN Architecture was to create a simple, rational home that emphasized its connection with the surrounding landscape, all of this done in order to celebrate the unique lifestyle that Beverly Hills and Los Angeles have to offer.
The kitchen and living room are open and spacious, done in a stark white that enhances this sense of space, with accents done in neutral tones that play with contrast. These rooms open out to a terrace with a pool, and, beyond, the view of the city, creating a continuity and a dialogue between the interior and the exterior that is irresistible and exquisite.
The entirety of the floor plan is developed around five volumes which enclose the private spaces of the house. Such an arrangement creates negative space, which in turn becomes the main living and circulating space, providing a free flowing travel route throughout the home, as well as views out to the exterior and the city.

This wonderful house of modern and spacious spaces, full of light and elegance, is located in the famous Praia da Pipa (Pipa Beach), in the city of Tibau do Sul, which is one of the main tourist centers and an important tourist pillar of the state of Rio Grande do Norte, in northern Brazil. The city of Tibau do Sul has grown rapidly as a tourist segment and, as it grew larger, it attracted people from all over the world. Today, we can say that Praia da Pipa is one of the most cosmopolitan beaches in Brazil. It is the perfect scenario to develop an exceptional and innovative house for the client, who fell in love with this city.
The architecture firm Yuri Vital was in charge of this project, covering an area of 1,360 square meters, in 2015.
Conceived only for vacations, this house has unprecedented characteristics. The goal was to create a house with a huge living room, and with an impressive view of the sea, without losing the main characteristics of a home. Therefore, a single area was conceived, without any division, which means that the design of furniture, tables, chairs, sofas, etc. would subtly create the divisions of each zone. The house has an impressive width and length, and from all the rooms you can see the beautiful sea and the famous cliffs of the city of Tibau do Sul.
This apartment is located in Madrid, Spain, by architects Marta Muñoz and Josean Ruiz Esquiroz, and is an excellent example of the optimization of space and power. With the idea of conserving space in mind, this remodeling project included different options of convertible pieces of furniture, in such a way that the space could be employed most efficiently.
