Tetris House is a modern wooden volume promoting indoor / outdoor living, architecturally designed in 2012 by Studio MK27, located in São Paulo, Brazil. Comprised of 6,673 square feet (620 square meters) of living space showcasing a warm and intimate open plan design, high ceilings and welcoming views out to the swimming pool and garden.
Description from the architect: A wooden volume in line with the eastern facade – with a little more 2.85 meters high and 19 meters long – rests within a ceiling height of 5.15 meters and 11.75 in the front. Configuring a permeable space between the entrance and the back of the lot, the living room is the emptiness that results from this organization of the plan on this lot. The space is delimited – together with the eastern facade – by a wooden shelf that contains the library and a fireplace. This is the architectural design of Tetris House, located in São Paulo.
The wooden Box on the lot shelters on the inside, the washroom, the stairs and the dining room, which opens entirely to the ample garden in the back, like an esplanade (terrace), looking from the inside in. (de dentro para dentro) The ceiling of this living room, a slatted wooden lining – creates a cozy, intimate sensation, contrasting with the spatial sensation of larger monumentality of the lot. The four bedrooms, including a master suite looking out to the garden in the back, are on the floor upstairs.
The seals – such as the wooden slats that function as a filter applied to movable panels– were designed to create greater comfort for the inner spaces. The sun’s heat, when the panels are closed, is retained by this type of brise soleil, while the wind continues to chill the inside. The shape of the lot, long and straight, has traced a longitudinal implantation of the house and the living room can have a cross-ventilation to the gardens.
The wooden lining of the ground floor is prolonged to the outside and becomes the very façade. The stone on the floor of the living room goes out to the terrace and the same material on the inner walls continues out to the façade. In this way, there is continuity not only of the circulation between the inside and out, but also of the materials, dissolving spatial limits.

Brown Vujcich House has been designed by Bossley Architects, located on a narrow urban site in the heart of Herne Bay, a suburb of Auckland, New Zealand. Tight site controls and a sloping site resulted in a long narrow building form that steps down the slope of the site.
Description from the architects: One of the main features of the house is the entry which is reached by a bridge that crosses a moat of planting. The entry is glazed with translucent glass to give privacy and a beautiful soft light to the interior spaces.
The entry space is protected by a vertical cedar screen with intermittent horizontals painted with colors that have also been used on the interior and inspired by the clients’ fantastic collection of 1950 -60s furniture, art and ceramics.
Once inside an open riser jarrah and steel stair with a hanging screen of stainless steel mesh leads either upstairs to the main living level or downstairs to the bedrooms and a second family living area.
The rooms on the lower level open out to the usually redundant side yards surrounding the house with each room having its own terrace and outdoor space. The building steps down the site and culminates in a terrace and pool off the family living space.
Light and privacy is modulated on the upper levels by opening and closing vertical lourveline panels or either cedar or aluminium. The living space opens out to a generous deck which with glimpses of the harbour.
Playful colours, finishes and hoop pine cabinetry enliven the interior spaces and the exterior materials of fine vertical cedar shiplap, double skin bagged brick reflect the clients’ love of fifties and sixties architecture.

Stanislav Grgic Architect has sent us images of their latest project, Popovic House, a family home located near Novi Sad, on the hillsides of Fruška Gora, Serbia. From this altitude, an unobstructed view over river Danube and Novi Sad with its surroundings is provided.
Description of the project from the architect: Due to the fact that this beautiful wide view is a great advantage that had to be used in the best possible way, the house was built on the very top of the site, this way providing an even clearer and better view.
This is why the living room was designed as a unit with a large glass wall which makes landscape visible from any point of the interior. The spacious, partially covered terrace, provides the same wide view.
On the same foor there is a bedroom section, comprised of three bedrooms, each with a bathroom, as well as a separate, large and double-height room with a fireplace, envisioned as a “trophy room”. With its dimensions, this room overtops the rest of the building and thus visually appears as a separate unit too.
The floor below this one was designed for a swimming pool with accompanying premises, and a wine cellar. The river and the city are visible from the swimming pool plateau too.

Faber Terrace is a single family residence focusing on a design filled with natural light and embracing the outdoors, completed in 2014 by HYLA Architects in Singapore. Consisting of 4,025 square feet (374 square meters) of living space, this terrace sits at a corner site and thus the full side of the house fronts the side street.
To preserve the privacy but still allowing light and ventilation, a slatted timber screen covers the entire side elevation. At the front, an outdoor terrace with a high volume fronts the main garden.
The space continues into the double volume living room with a feature book shelf that extends two stories.
The 1st storey has an open plan and large glass sliding doors open up to the lush side garden. One enters the house into the triple volume space with the cantilevered stairs on both sides of the walls.

From the architects: Casa Pina white and bright, as we all imagine an apartment on the sea. Resin, walls and white boiserie bring out the “frake”, a wood with many contrasts of light and dark, used for all furniture. Natural light ripples on the wave of artificial light, which softens and gives taste to the rigid lines and square volumes of the walls.
The table divides the kitchen from the dining room, both are bounded by a closed / open boiserie.
The white is imperative and enhances the window overlooking the terrace, from which you can admire the garden and breathe the typical atmosphere of the sea.
And the eye runs through the bed of the master bedroom that shows a glimpse of the precious vessels of the bathroom on one side, and the panoramic terrace on the other, and, on request, the view is obscured by an electric curtain.
