Villa Cardo

Villa Cardo is a 3 bedroom house designed by Studio Andrew Trotter, who designed Masseria Moroseta. Like the masseria, Villa Cardo has been built with local materials and using traditional methods of building, to ensure the Pugliese vernacular shines through, keeping the building light, airy and cool in the summer. The house is within one hectare of land, filled with olive and almond tress, and with views to the sea from the roof terrace. The sea is 7km away, with the amazingTorre Guaceto Natural Reserve being the closest beach. Carovigno is the closest town, and Ostuni is only 15 minutes drive.

Hunt Outdoor Kitchen

An outdoor kitchen in a lake access property in west Austin, respects the scenic and lush setting with a minimal structure that protects the views. The kitchen incorporates a pizza oven that is positioned to align with the fireplace of the main house. This allows the solid areas to be grouped together to further maximize views.   Using stainless steel and stone for the cabinetry makes the kitchen low maintenance. While a mahogany ceiling adds warmth to the space. The areas surrounding the kitchen were renovated with new stone pavers, pool upgrades, landscaping, and a fireplace with an outdoor seating area.

Here it is possible to take a moment to connect and listen to the nature, change your personal needs.

Rabbit House

Longtime neighborhood resident, Marian Heckendorn Brackett, happily recalls harvesting the wild alfalfa from the empty corner lot to feed her pet rabbits when she was a child. This lot would eventually be developed for a home that has been nicknamed, the ‘Rabbit House’.   Located on Packard Hill in Denver’s Potter Highlands Historic District, this 4,442 SFresidence is a thoughtful and innovative expression of contemporary style while respecting the scale, materiality, and history of the existing home. Originally designed and built in 1938 by Welsh architect R.O. Parry, the Rabbit House was a single-story red brick Tudor Revival residence. The current owners moved in over 15 years ago. Having fallen in love with the... More

Theodore Wirth Ranch

Envisioned as a modern ranch, the Theodore Wirth home rests comfortably on its hillside location. Immediately adjacent to the property, a densely wooded park creates a retreat-like feel during the summer months, while revealing the Minneapolis downtown skyline and its close proximity to the city throughout the winter season.   Working with the clients, this residence was designed in a way that can easily accommodate gatherings and be used as a place to entertain. Central to the property, a 10-meter swimming pool reflects views of the surrounding structures. In addition to the sauna, the pool house along the western edge provides a sheltered deck area and outdoor kitchen. Reflecting off the expansive south facing windows of the home,... More

Since the middle of the 19th century, the great European cities raised the need to transform their pre-industrial fabric. The case of Madrid, somewhat later, expands the city as a consequence of the population increase due to the agricultural crisis, which justified the expansion of the city by the bourgeoisie. The soil began to be understood as an element of wealth and commerce, houses were built using a marked and eclectic classic language as a desire for self-representation, and this language included, thanks to very permissive regulations, the construction of all kinds of viewpoints, cantilevers, Set back penthouses, towers and non-habitable domes, simply decorative. These spaces, used very often as storage rooms, are today the most app... More

The Farmhouse

A late 70’s mykonian house located in the middle of the island, with no view to the sea, was transformed into one of the spectacular villas of Mykonos. Being in one of the most agricultural parts of Mykonos, Maou, the concept was easy to decide: create a Farmhouse, where the outdoor areas become the most important part of the design, with a lot of personality to "make the difference". The result is a successful mix & match of different styles - mykonian, 70’s, farmhouse, bohemian & industrial – in complete harmony with the surroundings.The Farmhouse is composed by 3 levels. In the eastern side are located the 3 guest apartments, separated from the rest of the house for privacy; they all have their own outdoor livi... More

Silver Hill Residence

The renovation of this 1980’s residence transformed the disjointed original house into an open and inviting space with a strong connection to the outdoors. The interior is characterized by clean lines and natural materials including raw steel, shou sugi ban, and walnut that bring warmth and texture to the space. The large kitchen and central island form the nucleus of the home: a place where the newly blended family of six can gather as one. The exterior of the house was simplified in form and material. New landscaping, outdoor kitchen, porch, and fire pit allow family life to spill into the beautiful back yard. Hand cut limestone pavers mediate both the steep elevational changes from the interior to pool level, and the transition fro... More

Hope Street

THE BLACK & WHITE HOUSE: COTTAGE TO CONTEMPORARY   The reverse of the ‘hidden extension’ is the black & white house in the satellite city of Geelong in Victoria.   Here, a modest Victorian weatherboard was fully restored and painted in a monotone White colour. In brash contrast, the new portions of the build, a quite large, powerfully square and highly visible extension, were painted– Matt Black.   The simple idea of this interplay of contrasts was to visually thrust the original cottage forward into the foreground and reseed the new, so the little cottage rightfully remained the hero on the street.   The odd shape of the wide block allowed us to set the extension to the side. And while... More

The Delancey By Lanserring

At LANSERRING, our design process and journey always begins as a response to our clients’ individual lifestyles, needs and desires. We wanted to create an authentic design that allows life to flourish, uninterrupted; a space that embraces the day-to-day and spontaneous moments cherished by families. At the heart of The Delancey design is the 10-metre run of solid marble worktop, flowing from the pantry, to the main kitchen, to the outdoor terrace. The run is punctuated only by steel-framed screening, providing a continuous living space that creates and maintains connection between each member of the home.The central island in The Delancey embodies this vision. Appearing first as a hollowed-out block of solid marble, lined with almond... More

Foxhill House

PAD studio was approached to design a new, extremely low energy, ‘Lifetime Homes’ compliant dwelling which would create a full time residence for their clients and also enable them to work from home. The site, located deep in the New Forest, was required to meet stringent Conservation Area and National Park planning policy. The design had to be ecologically responsible for the lifetime of the scheme, also with a low impact to the site, surrounding countryside.    A key design concept was to create a fluid relationship between the interior and the exterior. Full height windows and south facing terrace enables the landscaping to flow into the house forming an outdoor room, complimented by a covered outdoor kitchen. The... More

Chestnut Farm

Chestnut Farm is nestled within a secluded woodland clearing, in the depths of the historic New Forest National Park. The site gently slopes away offering views over a natural pond and surrounding woodland. Capturing the uniqueness of this rural setting was a key design consideration and how this home became rooted to the particularity of its place.    PAD studio was responsible for designing a series of buildings and landscape interventions on site; the main home, working stables, workshop as well as a vegetable garden and outdoor kitchen. The location of each was carefully planned to foster and enliven links and dialogue between the structures whilst also taking advantage of the site to create both intimate and expansive views...

Pool House

The garden in a new concept, to be lived without interruption with the interior environment. An authentic open-air projection of the domestic living room, overlooking the greenery and a refined swimming pool with a contemporary design. We find ourselves in the Milanese countryside, where the landscape design studio Frassinago oversaw the design of the exterior of a modern ‘green’ villa. The ambitious project involved the construction of a pool house capable of creating a ‘second home’ with a single elegant structure that would make up for the lack of large windows in the house. The new environment therefore not only had to allow the use of the garden on hot days and in the case of rain, but also to create a natural... More
