Otsu House by ALTS Design Office

Photographer: Yuta Yamada

This house was built in the newly-developed subdivision surrounding new housing. While planning a design with client many times, we hit upon a keyword: “comfy house” so we considered how to make a welcoming atmosphere with lots of light. With a vault –shaped opening in the simply laid-out compartment, the space is designed to be airy and rhythmical. The light spilling through a large curved window will encompass the room in a comfy manner. You can enjoy the light and shadows made by sunrise and sunset. This “comfy house” will lead you to an unusual world. (more…)

Unfurled House by Christopher Polly Architect

Photographer: Brett Boardman

An articulated two-storey framed volume is sensitively stitched to the rear original fabric, while retaining its front Federation masonry and hipped envelope as part of its environmental, economic and planning values.

Bagh e Jannat by Bracket Design Studio

Photographer: Farshid Nasrabadi

Bagh-Janat alley on Abbasabad district is one of the oldest wealthy neighborhoods in Isfahan. Nowadays it is really hard to trace the old big green gardens and palaces there as all of them have disappeared and turned into modern apartments during the past 50 years of modernization only producing a mixture of heterogeneous buildings with different styles, heights, and densities. Among these dense buildings, it is hard to find a single housing or a small lot to develop and Bagh-Janat is one of the few. This three-level building complies with the height limit of 7 meters and appears one story high above the ground.
