The main design task was to provide enough square footage on the tiny lot to make the house livable, and still end up with a distinctive architectural structure. The solution to […]

House in Paço de Arcos


Located on an impressively sloping site in Paço de Arcos, a neighborhood of Lisbon facing the sea, this house proposes an arrangement of several solids trying to attenuate the overall mass due to a huge functional program requested by the client. A set of restrictive regulations, defined in the city council urbanistic project, from distances […]

Shawanaga Bay Residence


The site offered phenomenal views and complete privacy, which allowed the main pavilion to essentially become a glass box. The open concept living/cooking/dining pavilion connects to two levels of sleeping quarters. In order to reinforce the basic structure from Georgian Bay’s gale force winds and horizontal rain, the Douglas Fir columns and beams were reinforced […]

Entre Muros House


The wish to set up, the search for living in harmony with nature, the need of autonomy for each one of the three members of the family, the low budget (understood as the optimization of resources and spaces) and the phrase: “There is always another way of doing things and another way for living”, settled […]

Seola Beach House


Site: The waterfront property for this project is long and narrow, situated on Burien’s Seola Beach with a view across Puget Sound to Vashon Island. That portion of the site allowable for construction was quite small. A steep slope, which provides a pleasant buffering backdrop, becomes a threatening source for landslides, while the house had […]

The nature of the commission.

Villa Vriezenveen


In Holland stands a house: Black sculpture in the flat Dutch landscape. This remarkable residential property is a prime example of how the Dutch landscape is being transformed. Historic farmhouses are making way for new, artificial ones or abstract dwellings. The land itself is increasingly being used for recreational purposes rather than for agriculture. Where, […]

House in Palabritas Beach

The site is located at Gwangju Si, Gyeonggi-Do, where is not far from Seoul. Surrounded by small houses, it is at the top of a hill with deep slope. First thing to consider is to keep woods on west side of the site, not just because its slope is too deep but because it’s natural […]

House M


Sitting on the slope of Pöstlingberg in Linz, the 12 x 12 meter cube takes full advantage of the lot by establishing itself as far into the north-eastern corner of the site as building codes permit. These two sides have a very hermetic appearance, thus preventing neighbors from looking in. By contrast, the house opens […]

By placing the object next to the street in the north-western corner of the plot, preference was given to a beautiful forest view; the uneven terrain was used […]
