Hill Country Modern is a project designed by Dick Clark + Associates. On a large private lot at the foothills of the Hill Country, this client wanted their house to be ingrained in nature, rather than up on the hill towards the view; what results is a beautiful play fashioned amongst landscape and building – with each one stealing the spotlight from each other around every bend. To achieve greater privacy and to use the superior natural quality of it’s surroundings, we have nestled the house deep into the lot and worked integrally with the Landscape Architect to create a balance in the environmental setting and positioning.

The Goodtown house designed by by Alexandra Buchanan Architecture is a beautifully crafted, texturally rich contemporary courtyard home in the sought-after suburb of Rochedale, 17km south- east of Brisbane.

Bohn House by Dick Clark + Associates. This iconic Austin residence was first built in 1938 as a modern, art deco home that emulated a 1930s ocean-liner, with aluminum railings, porthole windows, a solarium with a curved glass wall, and a circular mahogany door that could be raised and lowered at the touch of a button.

Santo Tirso House is a project designed by Hous3. From the road you can see the house, on a small hill, with a dark silhouette in sharp contrast to its natural environment, offering a wide view over Santo Tirso. Its simple lines are the reinterpretation of the stereotype of the traditional Portuguese house, gable roof. Photography by Ivo Tavares Studio.

Sepidar House is a project designed by Saffar Studio. The appearance of small-scale architectural projects on land with low proportions becomes an attractive challenge, creates a different visual view with other buildings in the city, which leads to a unique feeling in the environment and the surrounding area.
Skyline is a project designed by Dick Clark + Associates. On a sloping site in West Lake Hills, this house slides in between mature Live Oaks to create a strong connection to nature. The form of the house is long and linear, following the topography of the site and directing the perspective towards impressive views of downtown Austin. Photography by Paul Bardagjy.
Abacus House is a project designed by RHAD Architects. Standing on a blank site, you are struck by its magnitude of beauty. Called the “Rio de Janeiro of North America” by Alexander Graham Bell, due to the picturesque Bras d’Or Lake punctuated by the sizeable island just offshore, the rolling mountains that form the backdrop of the building site are almost completely evergreen and deciduous trees, which are particularly well known for their fall showing of colour.

The Three Angle House has been designed by Megowan Architectural specifically to make the most of the three stunning views offered on this site in Mount Martha. Architect Christopher Megowan, Director of Megowan Architectural, was engaged to work on the project. He explained the moment he first visited the site “I stood on my car and turned around and I was blown away. It’s one thing to have one view on a site but three uniquely stunning and different views. To the north, you can see Mornington and Port Phillip Bay, the greenery of Mount Martha Reserve and Point Nepean to the west and to the northwest the Melbourne CBD on the horizon. The decision to build the house around these views was instantaneous and the agreement was in unison with the clients”. Photography by Anthony Richardson
Casa Rio is a project designed by Paulo Merlini Architects. The project results from the remodeling of an old farmhouse located in a yet very rural city. By disassembling the poor materials of the old facade we discovered that the house was actually made up of three small houses built according to the needs of the former owner.
