Baan Kanom Chan’s design allows the natural light to penetrate the inner space. Natural light plays a leading role in this area when it cast a shadow through the glass louvers. At the front of the house, the architect designed a double volume balcony that creates an inviting main entrance. It is a multifunction area where the owners and office staffs can use for any special events.

The House in the Woods project site was an interesting challenge for the working team Officina29 Architetti, where the strong, powerful presence of oak trees and the sloping terrain imposed the design that blurs the boundary between building and landscape. A suspended, simple orthogonal form of the house fits perfectly into the oak forest, a striking setting where the majestic trees surround and touch the building with its branches.

House in Leiria by Aires Mateus e Associados, photo: SG+FG

The house is a recognisable archetype emptied of its centre by the light designed by a three height courtyard that opens horizontally at the garden level.
