This home is located in the picturesque outskirts of Barcelona, right on the hillside in Cabrils. The architects Cadaval & Solà-Morales have built the house in the shape of the letter X by pursuing several design goals: to provide wonderful spectacular valley views, while avoiding looking towards the neighbors. Moreover, this form proved to be very comfortable and unique. When building the house a rare technique was used, which is regularly used for the infrastructural construction such as bridges and tunnels. The use of high-density concrete allowed to create single-sided formwork of high structural resistance which serves as a structural skin.

Have you ever seen plant facade design? We are going to review a very unusual and beautiful project by Samyn and Partners. First of all, it was desided to maintain the existing one story house on the ground level. The renovation provided structure for the entry, office and kitchen for the residence, and the living room and stairway extend to the rest of the building. The house presents curved and vegetalised facades that are very private and closed to the neighbours to the north, the east and the south. In contrast, the west facade is is fully glassed to provide natural lighting. The architects worked in collaboration with botanist Patrick Blanc and the facade is equipped with all necessary systems for plants life.
This beautiful wooden house that combines the features of a modern building and traditional parts for the countryside, was built by the architects from Linebox Studio in Ottawa. The house, called the Lighthouse, is designed for a family consisting of five persons, and has an area of just over 400 square meters. The fact, that the architects found the right combination of modern and traditional styles, allows the house blend harmoniously in the existing environment. Front facade of the house is rather closed and has only small separate windows, but the back facade, facing to the south side, provides plenty of natural light and warmth. It was made not only to protect the house from cold north winds, but also to provide the privacy of residents from outsiders.
