Casa Bauzà, Mallorca, south east Spain

House Bauzà Mallorca - Contemporary Houses
photo : Miquel Lacomba
Casa Bauzà
The project is located at the urban complex “La Font” in Pollença at the base of an impressive limestone mountain. The project was commissioned by the Bauzà family, thanks to whom I have been able to explore further possibilities on my work field, looking for naked and simple lines, seeking wider perspectives.

Cowshed House, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Design: Carterwilliamson
Cowshed House Sydney
photo : Brett Boardman
Cowshed House
The cowshed sat on a small parcel of land bounded on three sides by roads. The building was simple, essentially a long brick wall that held the urban edge of corner and street and returned to house a few bedrooms in the place of the former stalls.

Corner House
This house for a family of five is located on Sukhumvit Rd., Soi 101/1, next to their old house where they had been living since long time ago. According to the scale of the site and owner’s love of nature, open space, and gardening give an initial idea for this house design.

Croft House Inverloch
Quite early in the assessment process, from a field of 240 commendable entries, each the result of professional passion, a single project emerged from the crowd to announce itself with a clear voice above all others. Subsequently, throughout a rigorous process, that project remained to become a unanimous, clear leader and as fresh as the new day.

The relationship between spaces is ordered around the contention that the covered outside deck is the primary space. The covered deck is flanked by a sun trapped court and the kitchen and dining space.

Clifton Beach Building

Clifton Beach Apartment
This waterfront project combines elegance, luxury and sophistication in a beach front property located along one of the pristine beaches of Cape Town. The Client’s brief was to renovate a ground floor double level apartment in a newly constructed luxury complex.

Capitol Hill Residence, Seattle, Washington, USA

Capitol Hill Residence Seattle

Capitol Hill Residence
With a compact form and several integrated sustainable systems, this residence achieves the client’s goals to maximize the site’s views and resources while responding to its microclimate. The roof rainwater collects into a steel entry water feature, day light penetrates deep into the house through a central translucent slot, and exterior mounted mechanical shades can prevent excessive heat gain.

Casa CorMAnca
On a 12 meters by 13 meters (39ft by 42ft) plot of land, a monolithic volume is transformed in order to attain luminous indoor spaces. Slade stone at the exterior facades is contrasted with the soft beech wood finish, achieving great definition and special discovery.

The house has been built in a suburban neighbourhood and has been thought for someone who will live there permanently and whose children, friends and couple will visit them from time to time.

Contemporary House in Johannesburg, South Africa

Contemporary House in Johannesburg

Contemporary House in Johannesburg
Another luxury contemporary South African house by this architecture practice: as a result of an impeccable renovation, the house is divided into public and private spaces. To enter the private areas of the home, one must cross a bridge above a new internal water feature which breaks the public and private spaces, separating the entrance hall and study from the private home.

Cotacachi House
Based on the architects’ experience for their own house, they applied the same strategy: a universal scheme that can work for any site condition, a house whose spatial limits will be the two mountains that dominate the valley, the abstract glass house as a starting point.

Casa Varanda, Brazil

Casa Varanda Brazil - Residential Designs

Casa Varanda
A house made for the granddaughter of great architect Sergio Bernardes and a Colombian artist was a challenge. At first they wanted the house to have caracteristics of Casa Lota made by his grandfather in 1950, from which we kept some materials such as the ceiling.

House in Rio Bonito, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Casa Rio Bonito Brazil Residential Designs

House in Rio Bonito
This building is a weekend home in Brazil. Two voids puncture the roof at either end of the structure, washing the interior surface of the stone bearing walls with light and creating a stark contrast between the weight of the structure and lightness of the roof and floor which float above the rough ground.

Contemporary House in Zapallar, Chile

Contemporary House in Zapallar
The main strategy was to create a big terrace, creating this “new floor” that would allow the “leisure life” and make even more perceptible the Ocean sight, offering a unique relationship between the inhabitant and the horizon line, the same way as the cliffs do. The terrace extends towards the Ocean, removing the view of the existing houses.

Casa del Acantilado Alicante
Another modern white coloured residence looking out over the sea, but this residence doesn’t follow the normal rules. There is a curious schism in the middle of the property (see the photo above) between hovering volume and terraced outdoor space.
