House in a Garden

Situated at the northern tip of mainland Mauritius, Goodlands is one of the most densely populated neighbourhoods of the island nation. At the centre of Goodlands are large swathes of reserved forest lands, the fringes of which are occupied by sprawling family residences, far removed from the frenetic rush of denser developments close to the periphery. Located at the end of a residential street within these fringes, surrounded by protected land on two sides, sits the House In A Garden.   House In A Garden is home to a couple – who are avid art collectors – and their two young children, aged four and six. The house sits parallel to the south edge of the site, opening it up to the winter sun and a glimpse of the sea in the... More

Mallard Creek Modern Home

The Mallard Creek residence is influenced by site features that include a wetland with a stream, a lake surrounded by an agrarian alfalfa field and impressive views of Long’s Peak.

The private master suite contains a meditation space overlooking the lake for morning rituals while the evening court utilizes an outdoor grill for sundown activities and dining. Roof planes undulate to allow clerestory light into the spaces below while providing intimate scale f... More

Sapire Residence

An entrepreneur and family with a passion for health living requested a large home on their dramatically sloping 2-acre site. They specifically wanted an informal layout that could be woven into the topography of the property. Wanting to enjoy as much of the site as possible, the client requested the inclusion of steps and landscape pathways to allow for access to more distant parts of the steep site.   Situated on a promontory jutting into the canyon below, the hillside retreat boasts multiple vistas of the surrounding canyon and the Pacific Ocean beyond. Since covenants, conditions, and restrictions associated with the property allowed for only a single story above street level, many of the home’s rooms are located on a lowe... More

Root House

The house is located in a closed neighborhood in the northern side of Buenos Aires and is implanted in a ​​940 m2 lot. At the back of it there is a navigable canal that leads to the Lujan River.This strongly natural feature and the desire of the client to have a permeable house, closely linked to the environment, were the starting points for the project. We imagine then that the house could behave like a root that is taking possession of the land. A linear element, that bifurcates, goes up or down depending on the obstacles that wants to avoid or the objectives to follow during the growing process. Therefore, the architecture appears in this lot as a living element that will deformed according to the needs of the program or seeking to maxim... More

OT House

The house is located in the northern area of ​​Buenos Aires, Argentina, in a private suburban neighborhood. The lot has a strong natural component, because of the geography of the place but specially, because it borders a navigable river that communicates with the Delta del Río de la Plata. In this way, we seek to colonize this landscape as an architectural object that not only captures it but also proposes different ways of relating to it (through patios, water mirrors, lucarnas, running windows or punctual windows). The client wanted to have a special house in all senses, to connect it with nature, promote shared moments with friends and explore different ways of living, interior or exterior, intimate or social, contained or open, da...
