This double headed house’s architecture was designed by D’Arcy Jones Architects to be both open and private, while bold and modest. This single building has two units.

House in Costa Brava is a project designed by Dom Arquitectura. The south-facing plot is located in Montrás, with a slight slope towards the bottom of the site. The house is placed in the upper part of the land leaving most of the space at the front, where the pool and outdoor spaces are located. The main idea was to connect the interior spaces of the house with the outside, open the rooms to the garden and visually communicate the interior with the surrounding nature.

Private dwelling house is a project designed by CHADO Architectural studio. A house for a family of four people uses the idea of a contrast between a monumental “shell” – and a transparent, filled with light and air “inside”. Squat forms of reinforced concrete are coated with bricks and stones, and panoramic glazing opens a view to the interior, which becomes a full-fledged element of the architecture. The symmetry of the building is dynamically emphasized by the pipe of a two-sided fireplace, which runs straight through the center of the facade.

St.Francis is a project designed by Shean Architects. A courtyard weaving together two simple volumes allows an elegant simplicity to permeate throughout this light filled modern infill home.

Photography by Peter Fritz.
