6. A Tropical/Modernist home that brings nature indoors
“On the inside, there is a central double high green space – structuring axe of the house – that makes air circulation moving more freely, brings some indirect zenithal light to the different areas of the house and generates crossing views between them all. With the stairs, this space connects and separates visually serving and served functions. It creates this way a new landscape that organizes into a hierarchy the hall, the stairs and the suite.”

7. A creative loft under the rooftops of Paris
Architect Francois Pelegrin converted this home from a disused hotel for himself and his wife, Josephine Baker. The loft uses bio-climatic principles and to maintain a perfect interior temperature and air flow.

8. A home that makes the most of natural light
“Owners of a dark home in Sydney, reached out to Carterwilliamson Architects, not to add square footage, but to find ways to bring more natural light into the interior. Coming up with an unusual approach, they presented a design of two tall sculpted roof forms that had a low southern profile for the south-facing terrace problem they had. The high roof forms are able to draw northern light in while the lower profile allows the neighbor’s north facing windows to still get light. As the project developed, they referenced the roof forms as light cannons, an homage to those found on Le Corbusier’s La Tourette, hence the projects name, Light Cannon House.”

9. A home in Ayuthaya, the ancient capital of Thailand, that plays visual games with shadows
This boutique space was designed by Onion architects. Reflective glass open onto to the exterior courtyard, narrowed by the paralleled brick walls of multi-curved geometries. The mirrors frame the image of the sky. What is unique about the main circulation of the home is the constantly changing shadows. The curved shadows from the two sides normally meet on the floor at about eleven o’ clock in the morning. They transform the atmosphere of the space at different times of the day.
