Shadow Box by Jess Pedersen Architecture Inc. In designing a custom home, the architect and client bring something unique to the process and outcome. This relationship is most effective when the architect listens and understands the client’s needs and vice versa to translate into the final design. What was unique about this design and ultimate build was that the clients came to Pedersen Architecture with an interior design and construction background. P.A. took the approach of assisting the clients in designing their dream home as an architectural facilitator. Photography by Brent Moss Photography.

House AC-89 designed by LMARQ is located in the Adrogué Chico neighborhood, southern zone of the Province of Buenos Aires. The project intention was to preserve privacy without losing the relationship with nature and its environment. This is achieved with a closed volumetric front, and a quiet part of the building and upper floor frankly related to the landscape. Photography Alejandro Peral.

The Eaves House by McLeod Bovell Modern Houses exists at the interface between a residential neighborhood below and an undeveloped forested ravine above. The long and narrow cross-pitched site is asymmetrical with a pan-handle shape. Views to English Bay, the Vancouver skyline, and the Stanley Park peninsula are spread across the horizon to the south and south-east. Neighborhood development in this area is regulated by specific design guidelines that encourage roof forms rather than strong volumetric expression. Photography by Ema Peter.
Here’s a whole house remodel by KOArchitecture, the West Vancouver Residence in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Built in 1958 and originally designed by noted Pacific Northwest architect Roland Terry, this West Vancouver house no longer met the needs of contemporary living. Designed around a central courtyard, the L-shaped residence is divided into a private wing housing bedrooms and a public-oriented section holding the kitchen, dining and living areas. Purchased by a couple who enjoy entertaining, the house held great appeal—tall ceilings, exposed natural fir tree columns, and expansive glazing. The solution was a multi-phase remodel that focused on consolidating the kitchen, dining and living areas, enhancing the home’s connections to nature, and updating the design to clarify Terry’s original concept while enhancing day-to-day living.

Golden Hour on Lake Austin is a project designed by Ashby Collective. Homeowners, Angie and Todd Brinkmeyer, purchased the lake front property for its location, they wanted it updated to a more functional use as vacation lake house versus a primary residence. The goal was to shed the weight of the previous Tuscan-influenced design (popular when the home was built in 1990) to a fresh modern and organic style, expressing the existing lines of the house in a simpler, more contemporary way while establishing a free-flowing connection between interior spaces and the outdoors.

Newtown Lighthaus is a project designed by Sandbox Studio®. Located in an increasingly densified area within its namesake of Newtown, the inner west Sydney home weaves a series of additions in amongst the old. Ensuring the new works are bedded in a sensitivity to context, an extensive study of the established built form and architectural urban language was undertaken, to ensure the response was conducive and appropriate. Being surrounded by such an eclectic coming together of styles and architectural eras, the home needed to be anchored in place, and through the creation of a new sense of identity, Newtown Lighthaus takes position.
