Overview: This is a home surrounded by a vast garden that converges at a colossal pre-war rain tree with such magnificence that its presence is ingrained within the very architecture of the house itself. Throughout this home are numerous encounters with nature whilst still being very much indoors. The architectural placement of the building allows for the viewing of the feature tree from all of the main spaces, from either of its two storeys right down to the basement.

Overview: It’s a very spacious residence with a total living space of 306 square meters but the most interesting thing about it is the way it was organized.

The house was built in the center of the plot and was designed as a series of three cubes around an equilateral triangle. This allows it to be perfectly symmetrical. Three gardens surround the house and each one is intended for a specific time of day.

At the center, where the cubes meet, the architects designed three large arched windows which seem to form void at the ground floor. The windows stretch across the walls and reveal the three gardens. They each have a glazed central door.

Mar de Luiz Mansion

Overview:  The house is situated near the National Park of Paracas in Peru. It was built with two floors and a total area of 778 square meters. It has a front yard that’s exposed to the strong winds of the coast so the designers created an additional courtyard for the outdoor activities.

The courtyard and the swimming pool divide the mansion into two units. One contains the living area with the terrace, the dining room and the kitchen and the second unit is composed of the guest room, laundry room and the garage. These two zones can act as both separate units and as a whole.

The living and dining area has glass walls on two sides, with views of the sea on one side and views of the rest of the house on the other.

At the other end of the room is a sitting area. A modern white sofa and a daybed complemented by two lounge chairs are organized around a minimalist and robust coffee table. A stylish side table with hairpin legs and a really unique wooden top accompanies the whole arrangement.

From the living area you can see the courtyard and the outdoor sitting area. An L-shaped sectional and a square coffee table sit under a canopy supported by a really cool and sculptural element.

Forest Station

Overview: This unique architectural undertaking draws inspiration from an uncommon yet beautiful natural occurrence. Similar to how a tree’s roots will grow through and eventually divide a solid stone, the symmetrical structure features a wood-clad section situated directly in the center of a larger concrete framework. Not coincidentally, the tree-inspired building serves as a forest trekking station and sits right at the top of the canopy line, giving full visibility of the woodland area.
