Cantilevering over the sloped Australian terrain of Melbourne, this 450 square meter three-generation family house was designed for entertaining. This sophisticated, half grounded, half floating architectural piece was named the A-G House and is part of dKO Architecture‘s portfolio. Mid-century modern architecture inspired the design and construction of this very up-to-date residence. Dark-framed windows defining the line between interior and exterior remind me of the ones seen on the Cousin-Homes in Melbourne. Dark grey walls on the facade are sandwiched between white overhangs and white-lined terraces. A shared central outdoor entertaining area is nestled between two independent living wings, flooding the interiors with natural light through glazed walls. Materials like concrete, bluestone, glass and timber were combined to shape a home defined by open interiors uniting family under a modern roof.

An example of a huge success is Heneghan Peng Architects’ Giant’s Causeway Visitors’ Centre in Antrim, Northern Ireland. Using the large difference in level across the site, the architects created two folds in the landscape. Bold, but not conflicting with the rather bleak natural environment, these folds draw all the man-made areas together and create one fitting man-made break in the natural landscape. In the words of the architects themselves, There is no longer a building and a landscape, but building becomes landscape and the landscape itself remains spectacular and iconic

Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts
