Wall house is a project designed by CTA | Creative Architects. According to recently published scientific researches, indoor air quality is worse than outdoor air quality. Therefore, most of our discussions with the house owner tended to the idea of a house which is able to ‘breathe’ 24/7 by itself. Through the process of working, the Wall house is shaped gradually: A house is made up of eight separate spaces surrounded by ordinary walls. These eight blocks are interspersed and intersect at a common space, which is formed from ‘breathing walls’. Photography by Hiroyuki Oki.
This summer house designed by by SAOTA is set on the banks of Lake Huron in a small, remote Canadian town about an hour’s drive from London, Ontario. While the architectural context might be characterised as somewhat conservative “cabin country”, this house attempts to extend the possibilities of the traditional lakeside family retreat through a contemporary architectural approach, harnessing recent developments in design, technology and sustainability to connect meaningfully with its beautiful natural setting while exploring new ways of enhancing the lifestyle experience of the family summer getaway.

Project developed for a 40m² Loft by Gustavo Hadler in order to make it less compartmentalized and to meet the current needs in compact housing, without losing comfort and functionality. For this purpose, the walls that divided the kitchen and living room were removed, providing total integration between the environments. By maintaining structural elements such as pillars and exposed beams, we adopted a more industrial visual identity as a concept, replacing the existing electrical pipes with external galvanized steel rigid conduits.
