Located on the Pacific Coast, this beach home in La Jolla, Peru, was designed by Juan Carlos Doblado as a way to bridge the gap between man and nature and between the desert and the ocean.

Originally posted under the title “Well-Oiled Machine” on Metropolis Magazine, this fascinating article by Ian Volner profiles the international behemoth that is SOM, exploring how the practice has remained so prominent – and relevant – after 78 years, and what it is that stylistically unites a practice spread across five continents with more than 10,000 buildings to their name.

Harri Koskinen is no doubt filling the role of one of Finland’s best known and most prolific designers. In 2000, he opened his own design studio after graduating from the Lahti Institute of Design and the University of Art and Design Helsinki and becoming Iittala’s in-house designer in 1998. That job lead to a long-term partnership with the company and eventually landed Koskinen as the Design Director. The relationship still allows him to work independently with other noto

Located in Yarze, Baabda, Lebanon, Villa Yarze is a massive home that was built with an existing home already there. Wanting to keep particular characteristics of the existing house, Raëd Abillama Architects added square footage and a new design that blends both into one harmonious residence. While parts of the exterior could have easily looked to be a large monolithic-like facade, they paid careful attention to impart plenty of windows and openings, breaking up the stone and creatin

With incredible views of the sea and lush landscapes, CUBO design architect decided to make the most of the less than ideal, extremely sloped lot. Dubbed “cnest”, the two-volumed residence, located in Kanagawa, Japan, is meant to resemble a floating birdhouse within the surrounding trees. Prior to construction, they decided to leave the grove of zelkova and maple trees and build a house that fits into the scenery without disrupting them. The two structures have tall, del
