Field House is a project designed by Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects. Perched between ocean and pond, Field House almost appears to allow the landscape to run through it. Acting as both an extension of its surroundings and as a shelter from it, the house is conceived with flooding and wind in mind. Field House is constructed on piles and is comprised of a steel frame clad in durable mahogany, with anodized aluminum framed windows and doors, and high density limestone.

House in the Dunes is a project designed by Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects. The house is situated in an environmentally sensitive area with a fragile dune scape. The ocean resides within walking distance and becomes visually apparent on the second floor and roof deck. With the ocean comes the harsh salt air. Photography by Matthew Carbone.
Ocean Deck House is a project designed by Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects. This ocean front residence captures the sense of indoor-outdoor living by introducing large cantilevered decks and roof decks. Designed for an active family who loves to cook and entertain, the ability to do so on each level is a driving element. Photography by Matthew Carbone.
Beyond is a contemporary setting for life and art, where the full comfort of a modern home is potently married to an elemental architecture drawn from its dramatic setting. Perched on the shoulders of Lion’s Head, the home, designed by SAOTA, springs from a steep hillside that drops off to the famous sequence of Clifton’s white beaches to the Twelve Apostles beyond.

House in the lake is a project designed by Fran Silvestre Arquitectos. Located in the PGA golf course, in Girona, the house seeks the best views over the place where it is set. The project is solved by means of two extruded spaces, two overlapping volumes, in which the upper one moves towards the lake in front, giving as a result a cantilever that aims to generate a great shaded terrace.
