Vince and Adrienne Murphy’s rural retreat is clad in gray shingles and gray-stained pine. “They wanted the cottage to meld into the woods and be visually quiet,” says architect Kelly Doran, who worked with Portico Timber Frames to build the 2,500-square-foot home.
Because of the property's densely urbanised and developing location, the architect proposed a design that factors in the likelihood of tall buildings being constructed around it.
A hovering monolithic concrete volume forms the bedroom wing and covers the carport.
The roof is a low and flat sinuous slab. , and a curved volume of the rooms, sets up a T plan that defines the project.
A steel-framed canopy leads directly to the front entry of the dwelling. A concrete block fence provides privacy from the surrounding neighborhood. Drought-tolerant landscaping dots the landscape.
The low-lying, horizontal residence sits idyllically at the foothills  of  the Indian Canyons in Palm Springs.
Atelier Andy Carson has created a robust family home that actively explores the relationship between building and landscape.
The home was designed to cantilever out towards specific framed views of its spectacular surroundings.
The funnel-like protrusion cantilevers over the hillside and is supported by angled pillars.
A vacation home commission for a good friend, Klotz designed Casa Raúl like he was designing a home for himself—little did he know at the time that the home would one day become his own. Close to Santiago in the Andean foothills overlooking Lake Aculeo, the uneven topography of the site presented a special challenge for the architect. The home also needed to be accessible for the client's recently disabled son, with wide circulation areas on a single level. Unfortunately, a few years after completion, the client was forced to sell the home, but asked Klotz to help him with the process. Klotz asked for the keys to take a few photos, and upon seeing the stunning lake view from the terrace called his friend to tell him that he had found his buyer.  Casa Raúl is now Klotz's family weekend refuge.
The house is positioned on top of a hill on a 150-acre site where a ridge connects the Illawarra escarpment to the sea. From its elevated position, it looks down towards Werri Beach and Geering Bay.

“It was great to work from the plans of someone who was a part of the history of architecture,” says Drapszo.
Taking an active role in the restoration of a midcentury house she and her husband bought near Chicago in 2013, Eva Kowalow honored the vision of the home’s architect and previous owner, Jack Viks, while updating the structure to fit her style and the needs of her family. The entrance gate, designed by Viks, is original.
Outside, Eva and landscape designers Rosborough Partners thinned the trees directly surrounding the home. The paint on the steel beams is Extra White by Sherwin-Williams, coated in Duration Exterior Acrylic Latex.
On the exterior, Eva chose to cover the existing yellow brick with Prodema wood paneling installed by GFS Architectural Systems, Inc

Above the two-bay garage is a guest apartment (approximately 600 square feet.) that features a sleeping alcove, kitchen, bath, living room, laundry area, gas fireplace, and balcony.
The overhang assists in keeping the home cool in the summer, as it blocks some of the sunlight.
The home has a unique industrial aesthetic thanks to the use of eco-friendly structural insulated panels (SIPs) that are prefabricated off-site, manufactured with a minimum amount of waste, and then quickly assembled on the property.
The constraints informed the building design, and were embraced—for example, the cladding that was milled at the end was only enough to partially clad the studio.
The home is composed of limestone masonry and structural steel accents.
The house has two spacious outdoor patios for entertaining.
The windows were designed to allow for the customization of light and air floor at different locations.
Garden spaces surround the buildings.
A bright, yellow door serves as the main entrance to the house.
Each villa is composed of a series of spaces, varying from two to three bedrooms, and offers different views out to the ocean. Overlapping timber roofs made from recycled teak planks and built by local craftsman provide shade from the powerful sun.

Zoom out for a look at the modern exterior. From your dream house, to cozy cabins, to loft-like apartments, to repurposed shipping containers, these stellar projects promise something for everyone. Explore a variety of building types with metal roofs, wood siding, gables, and everything in between.
