With this project, the architects at CR2 Arquitetura created a stunning residence in São Paulo for a family that was looking for a new place in their Neighborhood. In a small street, they found a site with an old industrial kitchen that occupied 100% of the lot. The idea was to build a mini respite in the urban landscape. The house which seems to be like a large concrete box built on the lot aims to make the most of the sunlight which was already quite limited by the surroundings.
This two-storey house which looks beautiful from the inside is build on an unsightly car parking space in Shiga, Japan. While surrounded by neighboring houses and apartment blocks the Japanese ALTS Design Office had to find a solution to secure the privacy for their clients.
Check out this Lisbon townhouse with plants all over it. Designed by Portuguese architects Luís Rebelo de Andrade, Tiago Rebelo de Andrade and Manuel Cachão Toja the 3 story house has a vertical garden with 25 different plants and a narrow pool that stretches along the whole length of the roof terrace.
