Interior designer: Marina Sezam, Location: Barcelona, Spain
From the interior designer: "Enlarging the spaces and giving them maximum functionality were the objectives of this [renovation] which, in turn, had to adapt very well to the needs of customers. The combination of materials in the bathrooms and in the gallery was taken into account so that the result would be harmonious and elegant at the same time. Color was very important in this reform, and the combination of stones and neutrals with contrasting color notes in ceramics and textiles was studied."
Architect: Hufft, Location: Mission Hills, Kansas
From the architect: "When an art collector and his wife asked us to design and build them a new home, we used their extensive collection as the genesis of the residence. Artwork fills the lower level. This sub-grade gallery is the conceptual ‘heart’ of the home. The art flows from the main gallery into the circulation spaces of the other levels, spilling out into the hallways and vertical atriums. These ‘arteries’ give the residence its name. Our design focuses on creating moments—places to pause and experience specific pieces of art."
Architect: Christopher Simmonds Architect, Location: Ottawa, Canada
From the architect: "This bungalow sits at the edge of a wooded ravine and engages with the beauty of its surroundings. A long, tall, and light filled volume extends from front to back of the home and contains the circulation and main living area. It begins at the front door, extends over the open stairway, and back to the living area at the rear of the home with a view out to the surrounding landscape."

Design studio: Geometrium, Location: Moscow, Russia

Architect: Ryall Sheridan Architects, Location: New York, New York
From the architect: "The program for this 1840s Greenwich Village townhouse redefined it as a spatially interconnected contemporary residence for a young family. The idea of circulation as a public ‘street,’ in which family members encounter each other as they go about their daily routines, informs the organization of the house. Large landings at the south end of the circulation space act as places to interact."
