Born from a close cooperation between client and architect, this family home designed by Benyei Architectural Studio is a testament to the sort of building that can come from a bold and compelling idea and an architect that can enhance such boldness while still maintaining a keen eye for sophistication and brevity. And while luxury was an underpinning facet of the build, it was a careful, tactful understanding of moderation that has helped turn it into something noteworthy. Photography by Zsolt Batár
ONE-CU created a model villa for “THE LANDSCAPE MANSION” — a residential property developed by Poly South China, which is located in Sihui, Zhaoqing, China. “Si” and “hui” in Chinese respectively mean “four” and “convergence”, the city was named so because four rivers converge in it. With a history of thousands of years and rapid development driven by surrounding prosperous cities including Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Zhuhai, Sihui has become an integration of the old and new and enjoys a supremely livable environment.
Casa Cabo designed by Dellekamp + Schleich is a refuge that invites those who inhabit it to experience the particular conditions of its environment, characterized by an arid nature of high temperatures, peculiar endemic vegetation and dry winds. Photography by Sandra Pereznieto
VILLA LC is a project designed by DFG Architetti in 2019 and is located in Ragusa. An architecture that arises from the archetype of the house, the pitched roof, as we would have drawn from small, that goes down to the ground and generates a scenographic entrance, which embraces the guests, to culminate in a body of water in which one reflects a reverse world.
