Comporta 10

The Comporta 10 residence is located on the Portuguese traditional village of Comporta. Surrounded by a pine forest, the building is placed on a mild sloping plot that favors sun exposure and the relationship with the landscape to the South. The one-story house is the result of a sum of volumes. The final mass has different angles of orientation, leaving semi-open and outdoor passages between them. The architectural form has also reference from the traditional Comporta Style, making all pieces of the region’s architectural heritage subtly combined and embedded in this contemporary approach. Program can be broadly divided into two parts. The left core consists of the common areas. Living room, dining room and kitchen are continuous,... More

Oasis 2 Residence

This luxury residence was embedded into this steep hillside to overlook Lake Travis from two confluent directions. We were challenged to create views through, and access to, the pool from every room on the main level. In response, we created a glass jewell box that sits on top of a concrete plinth. The main entry area is an open void that bridges the lake to the user upon immediate entry. The lower level is is comprised of four individual private suites that pierce through the concrete shell to accommodate lake views.   More

Atherton Residence

Designed for Bay Area luminaries in Atherton, California this residence reflects a well-orchestrated response to a host of requirements, technologies, and amenities. Built for living, working, entertaining, and play, the diverse building program created the opportunity to weave a rich tapestry of form, materials, and details that reveal themselves at every corner. Anchored by the primary palette of Sapele wood and Jerusalem Limestone, the structure radiates warmth and elegance. By ‘folding’ the front yard down to the basement level, the building sensitively reduces its height and presence on the site; and through expansive glass and openings creates an engaging dialogue with the outdoors.

Living in Darwingasse Vienna

The existing spatial structure is consolidated with a new coherent gallery landscape. Two staircases are replaced by one in a different position featuring a railing with round perforations.   With just a few interventions a new functional unit emerges – a homogenous living landscape with a calm atmosphere.

Escape Pod

The owners of this 1880s Italianate two-flat wanted to convert the property to a single-family home. The design intent was to preserve the facade in accordance with landmark regulations, renovate the interior, and add contemporary steel and glass space at the back to offer an escape from daily life. The addition is a two-story space evoking the typology of an orangery—a glass-enclosed conservatory common in England where the owners have lived. The structure was unified by a three-story atrium with a steel and wood staircase connecting all floors. With large skylights, the atrium functions as a light well for lower floors. Steel catwalks bridge the front and rear of the home at the second and third levels.A unique element is an operable 17ft... More
