The designers from CEBRA Architects presented this exciting project of Sinus House. It combines two conflicting desires – to enjoy the view through the windows and protect privacy.

Master bedroom with private bathroom represents a separate unit. Opposite it there are two more rooms, between which a niche was formed. It can be used as a playground or chill-out corner for adults. The attic also has a free space where pantry is situated.
Tower House in Austin, Texas is a new project by Andersson Wise Architects. On the shore of Lake Travis there are several single-storey summer houses built in the 1930s. Tower House was one of them, surrounded by oak and pine trees, the house consisted of one small bedroom, a living room, kitchen and a terrace overlooking the lake. The client wanted to expand the residence, adding two bedrooms with a bathroom and more spacious living room. So the architects have erected an additional tower, made of wood, where sleeping area is situated. Two small bedrooms occupy the first and second floors. Above, a third level terrace opens to a panorama of the lake and distant rolling hills. On this terrace, some thirty feet above the ground, even the hottest summer afternoon can be enjoyed under a roof. Light breezes and a canopy will take care of it.
Somosaguas House is one more large beautiful house designed by architects from A-Cero, who have been represented in our blog with their stunning masterpieces many times. As in many other homes of this company, we can see a modern, minimalist design with a facade, made of concrete and natural stone; crisp lines and volumetric construction, which seems rather heavy and massive. Clean lines and solid construction seem rather heavy and massive. The residence provides high connection with its surrounding nature, especially with water.

In the province Las Rozas near Madrid Ensamble Studio realized an extraordinary project, called Hemeroscopium House. Completed several years ago, it continues to astound and amaze the audience with its appearance and a special philosophy. Hemeroscopium is an ancient Greek settlement, situated on the Iberian Peninsula. According to legend, it was a place where the sun sets. Work on the design of this unusual building took almost a year, but it was built during the week because the house was assembled out of large precast structural elements, prepared before. Because of the gray concrete facade the house seems a bit gloomy and unwelcoming, but an unusual form still attracts the attention. There are lots of features there: two pools, huge granite stone on the top of the house and lot more.
