Blurring the edges between indoors and out, the re-design of this Beverly Hills Residence designed by Abramson Architects focuses on redistributing the home’s layout to create a welcoming internal courtyard. Once inside the entry vestibule, a series of well-composed sightlines establish a simultaneously elegant and informal entry sequence. The lush interior garden is a sanctuary, easily accessible from the kitchen, dining room, and living room. photography by Manolo Langis.

Viewfinder House is a project designed by Faulkner Architects. “Can all of the rooms enjoy this view?” was our client’s question on our first site walk. We were looking at the Pacific Crest of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in the distance. This question formed the seed of our conceptual approach to the design of the house. We organized the family-driven program of 7,200 square feet into a simple two-part scheme. The lower-level base follows the street geometry, while the upper levels are twisted slightly to align with the view. The steel base protects the structure from deep winter snows common in the Sierra Nevada and allows the lower-level form to disappear into the grade on the high side of the topography.

Lido 501 Apartment is a project designed by Atelier Aberto Arquitetura. This 30m² apartment, with angled walls and an irregular floor plan, was once a hotel room. Located in the historical city center of Porto Alegre, the Lido Hotel has been for years a reference when it comes to searching for accommodation in the capital of Brazil’s southernmost state, close to the Matriz Plaza and the Public Market. However, the new demand for small apartments has driven the transformation of this hotel into a co-living building. Photography by Marcelo Donadussi.
