The stark, concrete interiors of this three-storey detached house fold and overlap creating a dramatic effect reminiscent of a three-dimensional greyscale cubist painting backlit by narrow streaks of sharp white light. Developed to echo a ‘gallery-like’, bare environment where the house’s inhabitants are able to display their taste for modern and contemporary furniture, the house rests on a reinforced concrete structure and the 101-square-meters residence was completed by a Japanese architectural practice fuse-atelier in 2011.

While Italians gather in their piazzas and the French take their café au lait, whilst people-watching, seated side by side in front of innumerable brasseries, it is fair to say that there’s no nation with more love for the outdoors than the Aussies. Not only more than 80% of country’s population lives within 50 kilometres of the beach, but Australia’s year-round warm weather also encourages the much-enjoyed alfresco activities. Taking the cue from that particular national penchant, Australian architectural practice McBride Charles Ryan have developed this multifaceted single family house, which they describe as ‘a new version of the good old Aussie verandah.’ (more…)

Riverside Clubhouse by Trace Architecture Office; photo by Yao Li

Referencing an icon of modernist architecture, the 1951’s Farnsworth House, this crisp, white detached house has been completed by Trace Architecture Office (TAO) who ‘stretched, looped and folded’ Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s famous one-room chef-d’œuvre. As a result, the Beijing-based architects have achieved a ‘smaller building depth with better views, introversive courtyard space offering more privacy, getting closer to water and accessible roof as extension of landscape.’ Offering serene, panoramic views thanks to the translucent glass façade, Riverside Clubhouse is located in the city of Yancheng, in a northeastern Jiangsu province, China – homeland of this years’s Pritzker Architecture Prize Laureate, Wang Shu.
