Neville Street Residence by Chan Architecture. Located on a small residential site in the bayside suburb of Middle Park, this project sought to renovate and restore a single fronted Victorian terrace house as well as provide additional accommodation to the rear. Due to the heritage status of the existing building this prompted us to design the new works to minimise it’s visibility from the front by setting the rear extension well back from the street.

Tredwell is a courtyard house designed by Steve Zagorski for a young couple starting a family in the heart of the Zilker park area of Austin Texas. We like to design courtyard houses and use the architecture to create a private outdoor space. The courtyard also allows for most all of the rooms to have a view of the internal space. This house features an indoor outdoor feel which allows for a sense of openness. Given the climate of Austin there generally is a provision for outdoor living. Photography by Brian Cole.
Flying House is a project designed by Studio LAB. Set on the ridge line of the Sahyadri hills, this holiday home overlooks the dramatic western ghats. This linear house is laid out along a 75 m long north- south axis facing the valley view. The 75 m long solid western wall is clad in copper slate stone that shimmers in the western setting sun.

The Little Much Farm is a project designed by Studio LAB. 6 acres, 4 bedroom villa, 2 bedroom cottage with pool and a farm.
The villa of ‘The Little Much Farm’ straddles a remote hill side location overlooking the Sahyadri hills of Mulshi and its lake. This is home for a family and their friends to re-engage in the environs of the hills that surround Bombay. The spaces are planned as a series of potential happenings; layered, connected, scalar, with an element of discovery. Photography by PHXINDIA.

Riverview House by is a project designed by Studio Ilk Architecture + Interiors. ‘De-clutter my life!’ was the overriding theme to our client’s brief. A place for everything and the provision to conceal the ordinary items of daily life to give a sense of calm and space, to provide the feeling of being in a holiday home. Photography by Peter Mathew.
Modern Victorian is a project designed by Frank Franco Architects. The design objective was to bring the 110-year-old dwelling up to contemporary standards by adding a three-story rear addition, improving the overall layout, and updating the interior finishes. While one partner felt strongly about maintaining the traditional character of the home, the other hoped to achieve a boldly modern aesthetic. To suit both tastes, the Victorian style front facade is respected and maintained, while the new addition at the rear is contrastingly modern. Photography by Bob Gundu.
The project designed by Praxis Architecture Miami is located on Rivo Alto Island, a lozenge shaped artificial island built in 1926, on the Biscayne Bay waterway, part of a string connecting Miami to Miami Beach. The lot (60 ft x 150 ft) enjoys views of the downtown Miami skyline to the West. It is approximately 6 ft above the main water level, as most of coastal Miami. The prevailing breeze is from the East due to its proximity to the Sea. Foreseeing possible flood conditions, the house is elevated to 16 ft above the sea level, creating a cross-ventilated and shaded casual living space at the ground level.

Humble House is a project designed by R Architecture. With the precision and foresight of a sculptor, our project chips away at the stifling ‘nice to haves’ of homelife, leaving behind only the essentials of elegant, functional living — the result is Humble House. In designing Humble House we denote that scaling down need not be synonymous with sacrifice, rather Humble House offers a refined, though unassuming aesthetic that advocates for the joys of stripping away excess and living simply with ease.
