Castel Gardena, an austere 17th-century castle among the peaks of the Dolomites is the summer refuge of the Franchettis, one of Italy's most aesthetically obsessed aristocratic dynasties.

Casa Tropical by Camarim Architects

Quote:
Portuguese architects Camarim have completed Casa Tropical, a holiday home in a fishing village in northern Brazil.

[...]

The clients wanted a holiday house with 3 bedrooms that allowed wide possibilities of contact with nature. We have replaced the conventional solution in domestic architecture – a compact volume with internal circulation – with a gallery that surrounds the 3 floors of the house, and corresponds to 50% of the total area. Both the wooden skin that envelops the gallery and the suspended roof, shelter the house from the Sun while keeping it permeable to the cool South wind, avoiding the need of air-conditioning.
We thought of systems in which earth, sun and shadow, coconut trees and other trees, dunes and sea, would complement the design of the house, suggesting a condensed and sensual experience of close and faraway nature.

3 Floors: 3 Landscapes totally diverse in use and means of approaching nature.
1: the podium, at street level, looks over the garden. Two volumes sheltering ancillary functions leave an open space for permanence, with wide views over the garden, under the shadow of the house above.
2: the rooms are accessed via the gallery, which is wrapped in a wooden skin that negotiates privacy, views, ventilation and shadow, this last one treated as a living ornament. The walls have the roughness of hand crafted bricks, painted ice white.
3: the living room is a house on the trees, a wooden house on top of the concrete house. The open roof leaves space for 3,20 m high glass panels, merging coconut trees, dunes and sea in the open plan interior.

Ljubljana practice Bevk Perovic Architects have completed a residence called House D in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

The house includes an underground gymnasium including a sauna, swimming pool and music room, lit by three atria. Terraces on the ground and first floors are equal in size to the rooms from which they extend.

House D is located the prestigious neighbourhood of single family houses in the vicinity of the centre of Ljubljana. Its concept was defined by the programme required by clients with a specific lifestyle. A couple without children wanted a house with one living room, one bedroom and a gymnasium. But, despite the simplicity of the brief, the task was complex - there was too much programme demanded for a relatively small plot of land. A large part of the house is therefore hidden in the ground forming an introvert world secluded from the surroundings. Each floor of the house offers a different level of privacy and relation to the outside space.

[...]
The house is organized as a series of carefully planned spatial sequences starting with a front garden. This garden is open, not fenced off as the gardens in the neighborhood, and forms an almost semi public area which simultaneously belongs to the street and the house.

Photographer Leonardo Finotti has sent us these photos of Guarujá House by architects Bernardes + Jacobsen, located in the Brazilian forest.

The house is a holiday home for a family with two children, and comprises a pavilion supported by pillars among the trees, overlooking the sea.

Guarujá House
The whole idea of the project was created when Thiago was visiting the site. There, in front of the client, he sketched what later would be the transverse section of what was being proposed: a vacation house, for a couple and their two kids. A place where they could invite friends over frequently.
[...]


The sea is the main focus of the building’s greatest view, but this didn’t follow the best sun orientation. Willing to take advantage of the great view, the decision to place the pool away from the building was taken, having then the house east facing and the hillside throwing a shadow over the pool.


[...]


Accomplishing such a project was very gratifying for the architects. A big, large planned house which disappears in the forest. A great house almost unnoticed among the trees.
Heaven on Earth !

I never thought that I would fine such nice houses on a fashion forum ever!
House D was amaazing?! A house built in the Brazilian rainforest is unreal. The house interior and exterior is terrific although, I would miss the shops.. ha.
I think the creativity of our style, the fashion that follows, reflect our perception of almost anything. Stylish self/stylish taste.
