The Meadows is a project designed by Vita Architecture. This Victorian property improves a 175sqm house to create a truly open plan living space. The project is located in Betchworth, a quiet village in Surrey and begun in July 2015. Built in the 1870s, the building has been cut and curved since and had ended up as an evolution of ideas through many an owner leading to an array of rooms within rooms and convoluted corridor layouts. The proposal aimed to open up the space. Photography by Jon Reid @ Arch photos

This charming shingle house — one of the oldest houses in Mill Valley — was bought as a fixer upper by a growing family. Oriented with great views of nearby Mt. Tam, the house pulls in sunlight and mountain breezes. The owners tapped veteran architect, Heidi Richardson, Richardson Architects, to return the rundown property to its former glory as well as adapt the interior for todays more casual lifestyle.
The Mask House designed by Atelier RZLBD is a two-storey dwelling that grounds its presence by embracing juxtapositional qualities in order to set an example for its neighbourhood which is undergoing a rapid gentrification. Located at the Roncesvalles Village, in the west end of Toronto, the project was designed and built respecting the narrow elongated trapezoidal site, the limited budget, the very restricted Zoning & By-laws, and of course a demanding brief from the client. Yet, the outcome brings vivid energy, inspires renewal, and suggests possibilities that design can offer. Photography by Borzu Talaie.
Verge House is a project designed by Finnis Architects which celebrates the threshold between two differing architectural styles to highlight the homes history and original charm.
