Perivolas by Manos and his wife Nadia located at the entrance of the village of Oia, on the cliffside overlooking the caldera in Santorini, Greece. In the 19th century the Psychas family, like many other Santorini families, developed through trade in the noted wines of the island a connection with Odessa on the Black Sea.  Manos Psychas, a sea captain, was born in Odessa, but when his job as captain of the Greek navy brought him to Santorini in the late 1950s he determined to renew his ties with his family’s island. In 1969 Manos and his wife Nadia purchased a piece of a cliff with cave dwellings and stables in the Perivolas area of the cliff top village of Oia. They had the vision of creating an idyllic retreat on their beloved island.  Faithful to the tradition of Santorini’s unique architecture they have restored a group of 300-year-old caves that were once the homes of local fishermen and farmers.  With the help of native craftsmen and using the local stone, this historical setting has been gradually transformed into a luxurious complex of 20 very individual suites. This was the beginning of Perivolas.

House in Alcobaça by Aires Mateus situated in Alcobaça, Portugal. The house designed in the historical center of Alcobaça is a record of overlapping times: A small building reconstructed to perpetuate the vernacular common scale, and a wall thoroughly shaped to house the quiet extension. On the existing building, a void is created by managing the thickness of the peripheral walls. An absence of space is freed collecting luminosity from a skylight that grants a private and protected atmosphere. The compartments appear as internal additions, connected to the exterior through reinterpreted windows in the façades, but proposing an unexpected internal space. The extension of the house takes the difference between two levels: The street level and the garden that is generated with the river Baça. The form of the new wall defines courtyards that mediate the contemplation to the exterior. The social areas, work as a spatial continuum that spread through the two times of the intervention.

Gerês House by Carvalho Araújo situated in Vieira does Minho, Portugal. Gerês house is located on a steep slope in the Caniçada Valley where there were a small house and a stream. The existing building was located in an upper level of the land eventually liable to small landslides, which determined its demolition and the relocation of the new construction.  The new construction relates to the land in a very spontaneous way, taking advantage of its steep slope, of the small stream and of the privileged view over the landscape. The access to the house is made from the upper level, ensuring a full view over the lot and over the building that fits on the ground like a rock. However, it’s inside the house where the visual range allows us to (re)discover the land below, characterized by the irregular stream’s route that results in a small lake at the lower level.

The building consists of two elements, a large wood volume that rests on a concrete base, which extends over the land and on the water line. The use of these two materials extends inside the house, which does not seek a conventional program, but rather large, functional and multipurpose spaces, where pleasure and work are mixed. The social space of the house assumes special relevance, materialized in a large central living room which extends to the outside through a large terrace. The kitchen and services are arranged on the same floor of the living room and the most intimate program comes at a second level, relating with the first one in the form of a mezzanine.

Russet Residence by Splyce Design located in West Vancouver, BC, Canada. The 4,300-square-foot home was built in 2013 and isTucked into the hill, the front of the house is deceptively modest in scale, set off by the large mature cedar that anchors the front yard. This project is located in West Vancouver on a steep site with mature cedar and douglas fir to the west and an ocean view to the south. The house responds to these conditions by nestling itself into the hill while also projecting out over it to maximize views and connectivity to the landscape. Due to its proximity to the rugged and sloping creekside bank to the west, the house was subject to strict environmental and geotechnical conditions, including a required setback from the top of the bank that pushed the building’s foundation eastwards. The resultant footprint was awkwardly narrow, so to gain back valuable space, a portion of the main and upper floor is cantilevered back out past the foundation, allowing the native creekside vegetation to grow up, under and around as an uninterrupted, wild, forest floor.

 

 

This reclamation of space is clearly pronounced in the dining room, where it projects fifteen feet out past the concrete foundation wall. By eliminating window frames and extending the glazing panels on all three sides of the room, past the floor and ceiling planes, the space dissolves into the adjacent forest canopy and provides framed views through to the ocean beyond. Tucked into the hill, the front of the house is deceptively modest in scale, set off by the large mature cedar that anchors the front yard. The topography of the site reveals itself as one descends the exterior stairs adjacent to the forest and follows the exposed concrete wall to the main entry. Continuing through to the interior, the wall rises up seventeen feet to help frame the bright circulation volume, with stairs leading to the upper floor and down to the main living spaces. From this space, one gains an understanding and orientation of the home in relation to the site, its topography, and movement of the sun across the building by way of the wall-to-wall skylight above. Subtle hints of views to the sky, ocean, and forest are suggested from this vantage point but it’s not until one moves deeper into the house when

Forest House by Chris Tate located in Auckland suburb of Titirangi in New Zealand. Architect Chris Tate’s Forest House is a modular glass structure perched in the branches of the densely forested hills of the Auckland suburb of Titirangi in New Zealand. This is a residence that Tate uses himself as a weekend getaway retreat which has very little site impact. The glass home is tucked away in a deep ravine, which stands out with its flat black roof punctuated by four glass skylights with a slender set of wooden stairs snaking down next to it. The staircase leads to a small outcrop of decking in front of the home’s entryway. From the entrance, the house can be seen for what it is, a glass box perched amidst the bush with nothing around it except for massive trees.

 

 

 

The concept of the design was to focus more on the environment than on the house. This is particularly emphasized by the striking puriri tree that angles out from the bank and curves around the side of the house. The house has been designed around the curve of the trunk, using it as a main focal point. Nothing has been disturbed in this environment, there are no concrete foundations or retaining walls, and it feels more like a camping retreat, where Tate has deliberately not installed a TV, dishwasher or microwave. The steep site was a challenge for the builders, yet no excavating was necessary on the sight, not even leveling. All the trees were enclosed in scaffolding to protect them and then 16 poles were entrenched into the earth, with the house constructed upon them. The home was designed with a minimalist approach, with no hidden storage spaces in the living area, but the study, bedroom, and bathroom provide the perfect amount of comfortable living for two. The bedroom area is at the opposite end of the house up against the bank. Along with this wall is a floor to ceiling curtain that conceals open shelving and wardrobes. Tate’s home is dominated by a black and white color palette and many elements inside the home have a botanical theme, such as the upholstery.

The Pulitzer Arts Foundation by Tadao Ando located in St. Louis, Missouri, USA is Japanese master Tadao Ando’s very first freestanding public commission in the United States, completed in 2001. Since August 2014, the original building has been undergoing a makeover, in consultation with Ando, to accommodate the foundation’s growing needs. Responding to an increasing demand for space, the new project includes a significant expansion of the foundation’s gallery area. Arranged within the building’s lower level, two major new display spaces, which previously hosted offices and storage, will now be part of the institution’s exhibitions and activities program, aimed to engage the wider public and local community. These new spaces increase the foundation’s program capacity by a striking near-fifty percent. At the same time, the organization (previously known as The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts) relaunches under a new name ‘to emphasize [its] institutional vision’. This is the building’s first major alteration since its completion in the early noughties. And Ando’s skillful redesign is focusing on more than just increasing floor space; a new, additional staircase will support movement through the building and help with visitor flow, perfecting both circulation and visitor experience within the new and old parts.
