Tiburon Bay Residence is a project designed by Walker Warner Architects. Nestled into an east facing bluff of the Tiburon Peninsula, the two-story residence provides sweeping views of San Francisco Bay while acting as a natural buffer from the road and neighboring houses. Inspired by the client’s appreciation for art and nature, the residence incorporates bold architectural features that convey the element of surprise through unexpected spaces.

This private residence sits within the Mauna Kea Resort on the island of Hawai’i, a place full of memories for the client who recalls family vacations to the famous hotel. The clients share an affinity for Hawai’i and Polynesia, for modern art and design, and for the beauty of natural materials and craftsmanship. They enlisted the firm to design a modern tropical home that their family would enjoy for years to come. The design solution balances traditional forms including prominent hipped roofs identified in the design guidelines for this coastal community, while translating the spirit of Polynesian cultures through a modern sense of restraint. On a site privileged by nature, immediately above Kauna’oa Bay, this home is organized as a series of modern tropical pavilions, which together conjure the impression of a small village.
This Vintage Lake Austin Home is a project designed by LaRue Architects and Britt Design Group. The 4,100 SF one-story ‘Hill Country contemporary’ residence sits on a 1.2-acre site on the west bank of Austin, TX. Lou Ann and Don McLean purchased the lot in 2012 and reached out to LaRue Architects in early 2014 to design their lakeside dream home. The lot had an existing house – built in the 1950’s as a vacation lake cabin – typical for the area. The original hexagon shaped cabin was renovated with an addition added in the 1970’s.

FIG HOUSE is a project designed by Stemmer Rodrigues Arquitetura. The ancient and sculptural fig tree (figueira, in Portuguese), with the organic nature of its branches, contrasts with the hardness of the concrete structure on the façade. It houses the bedrooms in the upper floor, and it protects the dwelling from the harsh, polar winds blowing from the south. On the ground floor, a longitudinal structure of Corten steel and glass protrude the living space towards the water. Photography by Marcelo Donadussi
