This also provides a simple circulation area between the various rooms, and levels. Living areas are on the upper floor which enjoys views over the dunes to the ocean; the bedrooms and library are located on the more private and protected ground floor which is tucked in behind the dunal vegetation.

Slim House by Matt Fajkus Architecture

Slim House is a project designed by Matt Fajkus Architecture. Situated within a one-acre lot in Austin’s Tarry Trail neighborhood, the back yard of this existing 1933-vintage historical house was underutilized. The owners felt that the main drawbacks of the existing back yard were a general disconnection between each outdoor area and a general lack of relationship to the house proper. Therefore, the primary goal of the redesign was a scheme that would promote the use of the outdoor zones, with the pool as a centerpiece. Photography by Charles Davis Smith

Casa Ora by ZDA Zupelli Design Architettura

The project of “Casa Ora” designed by ZDA Zupelli Design Architettura was born from the intersection of two linear volumes that, following the directions of the area, define the particular angular shape of the house. The two volumes accommodate the sleeping area and the open-space living area, delimiting the outdoor area of the garden, creating a continuous view of the pool area. Thanks to the presence of large windows on this side, the visual limit between inside and outside is eliminated, flooding the various rooms of the house with natural light.

South Villa

South Villa is a five-story penthouse in the award-winning Clifton Terraces apartments on Victoria Road, Cape Town. Its elevated position on the iconic Lion’s Head takes in extravagant ocean views and local landmarks such as Table Mountain and Clifton’s pristine beaches.
The terraced form of the building is designed by SAOTA. Deep overhangs and a restrained natural palette of materials blend into the beautiful natural surroundings while landscaped terraces on each level ensure that the building will settle even more effectively into its environment over time. The building mimics the existing contours of the site, sensitively ensuring that the views from neighbouring sites were unaffected or even improved. The interior décor and interior architecture, by ARRCC and OKHA, has stylistic connections to the style moderne movement of the Art Deco period of the 1920s and 30s.
