The Greenwood House is a 4-bedroom Eichler home that was built in Palo Alto, California in 1973. The homeowners hired Ryan Leidner Architecture to do a complete renovation that involved removing interior walls and reconfiguring the kitchen and living spaces to open them up to the outdoor space.

Billinkoff Architecture were hired by a couple who were interested in downsizing from a 7,000-square-foot family home in Westchester, New York to a much smaller Manhattan apartment. The clients settled on a two-bedroom, post-war apartment but with several demands to make it work.

The one appeal—an outdoor terrace the owners wer

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 70 square meter (753 square foot) Humaita Apartment, in Porto Alegre (RS) Brazil, was designed by Renata Ramos for a young couple with specific demands.

Hut in Tsujido is a minimalist residence located in Tokyo, Japan, designed by Naoi Architecture & Design Office. Fortunately for the owners, the adjacent site – under the management of the city authority – was declared a “green site,” and will be kept vacant for the future. As a result, the architects wanted to create a hut-like building to correspond with the surrounding scenery. The main floor consists of three zones, which encompass the living area, din
