Architect: JJRR Arquitectura, Location: Mexico City, Mexico
From the architect: "The challenge in this project is to preserve the essence of the original house...with a large central courtyard [and the] traditional colonial hacienda characteristics of the houses in San Angel. In turn, we complemented the architectural program with a contemporary touch in such a way that respects the essence and style of the original house. To achieve this result, we think of materials such as wood, flattened whitewash, volcanic stone, glass, as well as giving importance to vegetation, with the intention of differentiating the new part from the original part of the house and achieving a good dialogue between both."
Architect: The Ranch Mine, Location: Phoenix, Arizona
From the architect: "Drawing inspiration from famed artist Georgia O’Keeffe’s adobe houses and patio paintings, architecture firm The Ranch Mine designed a modern courtyard home in the American Southwest on the site of a former parking lot. Weave is a new house that stitches together modern conveniences with the Southwestern vernacular in a historic district in the heart of uptown Phoenix, Arizona."

Interior designer: SGS, Location: Costa Mesa, California
From the interior designer: "California Ranch meets NYC loft in this Richard Neutra-inspired ocean view home, perched above a regional park and the Santa Ana River. The green build home features reclaimed solar water panels, providing radiant heat for the floors and hot water for the home. Consisting of and celebrating basic materials such as concrete, raw steel, and wood, the home's palette is both simple and daring."
Designers: Evoke International Design, Location: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
From the designers: "The upper two floors of the house sit on a concrete podium that forms a level base on the steep slope of the site, and creates a firm boundary for the extent of the building footprint. Two independent volumes are connected by a steel-and-glass structure, allowing for deep natural light penetration into all areas of the house, while helping to minimize the overall massing."
Architect: Estúdio Penha, Location: São Paulo, Brazil
From the architect: "The client—who had lived in New York—wished for an industrial look while retaining a connection to the natural setting. Industrial iron frames were used in the bedrooms, bathrooms, and in the social side aisle of the house, which is used as a space for circulation."
