Colonnade House by Splinter Society

Colonnade House emerged from a brief for a large family home that respected, but was distinctly different from their existing federation home. Where the heritage building was light-weight in nature, contained closed, disconnected rooms and was badly sited resulting in a cramped feel, the extension was to be modern, robust, made from concrete and well connected to its garden surrounds. Together, new and old were to feel peaceful and relaxing, and be a great entertainer for the art-loving family.

House for a Photographer by ValArch ateliér

Premek´s land looked like a nice peaceful meadow under the forest but the whole thing looked easier than it actually was. The land lies on the border of the third and fourth zones of the Beskydy Protected Landscape Area. Even though there are original buildings from the 1970s all around, we had to make a great effort to build this house. The orientation of the plot was not quite ideal either but nothing we could not handle.

Round House by Feldman Architecture

Tucked away in Los Altos Hills, the aptly named Round House is a geometrically unique structure; one of a few similarly shaped circular homes in the area that were built in the 1960s. The clients fell in love with the quirky house and initially planned a modest remodel. Soon after moving in, the pair recognized more serious inadequacies; in particular, the low window eaves which curiously obstructed the otherwise spectacular views. With views as the driving force, the owners took the opportunity to modernize the entire house and open it up for a more contemporary feel.

dominates penetrating light.
