This beautifully simple, compact summer house in Hamra, Sweden was designed by architecture studio DinellJohansson. The client initially asked for an existing barn to be converted into a summer house. Instead, DinellJohansson designed them a barn-like home. Don’t you love it when architects don’t just listen to their client’s brief, but rather go on to create something even better. I love that shit! The house is a simple rectangular structure with single open space, focusing on sustainability and minimisation of waste. Unique furniture and joinery assembled from remaining or reused building material and clever use of space make this house one of a kind.
Sitting at the peak of a hill in the Moroccan mountain ranges, Villa E rises up from the landscape, like a form extruded from the earth. The locally sourced Oika stone walling reads like an extension of the landscape. From the road in the valley, only the tiniest window openings pierce through the structure, veiling the life that occurs inside. Hidden within is a private mountain retreat by Studio KO. With studio bases in both Paris and Morocco, Villa E represents the convergence of ideas from both design cultures. Studio KO weave together the contemporary minimalism of Paris with the earthy textures of the Moroccan aesthetic.
Nick Olson and Lilah Horwitz built a recycled window house made entirely out of salvaged materials and found objects set in the West Virginia Countryside.
This beautiful house-to-be is designed by Malmö-based architecture studio Förstberg Arkitektur (FAF). That’s right people – you are looking at extremely realistic and super beautiful 3D renderings of “House for mother”. Insane. In the membrane. This work-in-progress residence is located on a 325sqm site in the Southern Swedish city of Linköping. Built for the Linköpingsbo 2017 home exhibition, the house is divided into two parallel structures slightly shifted from each other, creating spaces both in front of and behind the building. Oriented to the park in the north and the alley in the south, “House for Mother” is a reflection of it’s neighbourhood plan, which incorporates a variety of housing types into relatively small blocks of land.

Who feels like a cool drink of water? I felt like I’d had one after looking at Mitsumasa Fujitsuka’s photos of this beautiful Kengo Kuma house. It’s a littler, newer, Katsura. Spare Japanese perfection, just enough brush strokes to render a completely captivating scene. Something about the way the deep eaves and deeper running-board of the house penetrate the garden gives the impression that the rooms inside and the space outside is in perfect coalescence.
