World-renowned architect Daniel Libeskind inspires Jaime and Amy with his eternally optimistic world-view and powerfully uplifting story of being born into persecution, immigrating to “the promised land” of the U.S. and participating in the space race. As the architect responsible for the master plan of the World Trade Center site, he composes memory in order to heal the future. Oh and he’s got mad accordion skills.

The owners of a private Victorian house in Victoria Park, East London hired Tamir Addadi Architecture to design a modern extension along with some renovations to the lower ground floor of their residence. Originally they only requested an extension to house a dining room, but reconsidered to alleviate the blocked view to the back garden. When the project started, a utility room with a bathroom was located at the back essentially blocking the garden from the kitchen’s view, as w

Located in Wadi Abu Jamil in Beirut’s Central District, the Wadi Penthouse is a renovation project where Platau updated a segmented, two-story penthouse for a family of four. Originally, the layout wasn’t working, especially between the two floors. To solve that, a double-height space was designed at the center of the home with living spaces, offices, storage, and bedrooms just off of it. A custom steel and copper light fixture hangs above in the double-height space becom

Matt Fajkus Architecture designed the [Bracketed Space] House in Austin, Texas with careful attention paid to the site’s uneven landscape by creating a progression of spaces as it changed. A long pathway transitions down to reach the front door alongside a retaining wall that continues through the house to the rear. The living room effortlessly extends out to the minimalist pool and spa area, which also features an outdoor eating space. The home is separated into private a

Kooyongkoot Road Residence is a minimal home located in Hawthorn, Australia, designed by B.E Architecture. The three-story house features a compact design situated on a smaller site with two north-facing courtyards. Planted gardens along the outdoor terraces create privacy from neighboring properties. The gardens also intersect with the building to create verdant views from all the internal spaces so that the urban property feels surrounded by nature. The material palette was a respo

The tiny house movement continues to grow as people attempt to downsize their lives and add a bit more freedom back by avoiding high cost mortgages and lots of material possessions. Maybe jumping on the tiny house train is a little scary for you without having tried it out but Getaway is aiming to change that. The venture-backed startup builds tiny houses, places them on rural plots of land, and then rents them out to those looking for a break or wanting to give them a try. So far, th

Sometimes church congregations move on, perhaps because the building itself is falling apart or it becomes too small. Either way, those unique structures show up vacant from time to time. For some living in a church may be a bit taboo, but for others, they welcome the challenge. Here, we’ve rounded up 10 projects where old church buildings are transformed into jaw-dropping modern homes. Take a look. A Victorian-style church in London was converted by Gianna Camilott

Valldoreix, located in the Barcelona province, is home to a residential project designed by 05AM Arquitectura. House in Valldoreix is not just a house though… it’s part house and part exhibition space for modern art. Set back from the street and neighbors, the residence opens up on the south side with large expanses of windows. The house comprises four volumes, two pairs that face different directions with three double-height spaces that connect the volumes, as well as th

Though based in the United States, a couple wanted a modern apartment in São Paulo, Brazil that was both comfortable and cozy, where they could host friends and family. Hired to complete the job was Tria Arquitetura, who transformed this 1970s, 165 square meter (approx. 1776 square feet) apartment in the Jardins neighborhood into a space that worked in modern times but still honored its architectural integrity. The wood floors, windows, and ceiling height were kept the same, while th
