Garden Road Backyard Renovation is a project designed by Nathan Fell Architecture. The owners knew they wanted to create spaces in their backyard that be useful and encourage them to be outside more often, but because their backyard space is so massive the scope and size of the project was initially difficult to define. After a few initial rounds of design, the project ended up creating a series of spaces near their house and pool rather than try to utilize the entirety of their yard.

GRAFT’s design for a single-family house and two semi-detached houses combines the aspects of mobility, energy and healthy living with environmentally-friendly construction. The project’s holistic approach encompasses modern architecture, innovative building services and e-mobility as well as sustainability and physical health. The houses even generate a energy surplus that will be used to charge an e-car that the tenant rents with the house. Photography by Tobias Hein.

Casa 15 by AM-arqstudio. When you first meet a client, you start traveling through spaces that are not built yet. Even before the client understands what the project goals are, the distinct spaces start taking place, sometimes is a word, other times as a perception of how a material feels when touched, and others, how the light makes you feel. Every project is a unique relation between intentions and desires translated into what is expected to be the comfort, the pleasure, and the relaxing sensation to the house’s inhabitants.

The Pool House is a project designed by Studio Nicholas Burns. In the north of Portugal, the softness of maritime pine, oak, and eucalyptus trees descend gently into hand-chipped stone embedded into the earth. Sitting gently at the base of this hill in the Minho region is the Casa da Piscina, flowing across this terraced landscape: it is at once buried yet open; arresting, but quietly so.

The refurbishment and extension of this pretty timber house designed by Bryant Alsop for a young family of 4 was driven by the desire to create space and light on a restricted, inner-east site. Carefully balancing heritage, council and building reg requirements the completed design is light-filled, voluminous and provides successful family zoning. Photography by Dylan James
