Albatross Avenue is a project designed by Studio Workshop. 8 Albatross is a three-storey pair of beach residences with an east-facing aspect toward the pacific ocean, situated along a narrow, busy thoroughfare. An array of vertical fins is deployed to serve multiple functions including sun-shading, privacy, curation of views, and to modulate the scale of the overall form. Photo by Andy MacPherson.
House in Costa Brava is a project designed by Dom Arquitectura. The south-facing plot is located in Montrás, with a slight slope towards the bottom of the site. The house is placed in the upper part of the land leaving most of the space at the front, where the pool and outdoor spaces are located. The main idea was to connect the interior spaces of the house with the outside, open the rooms to the garden and visually communicate the interior with the surrounding nature.

Private dwelling house is a project designed by CHADO Architectural studio. A house for a family of four people uses the idea of a contrast between a monumental “shell” – and a transparent, filled with light and air “inside”. Squat forms of reinforced concrete are coated with bricks and stones, and panoramic glazing opens a view to the interior, which becomes a full-fledged element of the architecture. The symmetry of the building is dynamically emphasized by the pipe of a two-sided fireplace, which runs straight through the center of the facade.
McCulley Design Lab is based in San Diego and they’ve recently finished a down-to-the-studs renovation of this post-and-beam in Solana Beach. The new home invites its native Torrey pines into view from every room, including the master bathroom, while other changes bring this midcentury home back to its architectural roots, such as the stunning new pool area.
This generous villa designed by i29 is made for a family of four, allowing for all different spaces to be connected on one level. A sustainable and spacious home that blurs the lines between interior and exterior space. In the center of the living area, a lush green patio is placed and floor to ceiling sliding doors give open views to the surrounding garden or swimming pool. All cabinetry, kitchens and furniture are custom designed and made to measure following the architectural layout. All to bring the architecture and interior design in complete synergy.

SAOTA’s Hillside home in Los Angeles is located immediately above Sunset Boulevard on a promontory just one over from Pierre Koenig’s landmark Stahl House. The site is a 20 000 square foot estate, featuring 300-degree views over the LA skyline and the city basin below, and the design was conceived of more as a self-contained oasis rather than a conventional house.
