An aerial view of Casa FM
The structure as it sits in the landscape.
Casa FM's flat profile provides a natural home for a living roof.
The linear layout of Casa FM is much like a railroad apartment. All of the rooms lead towards the living room and its spectacular view.
Casa FM's rectangular form sits perched on the edge of a scenic valley.
Casa FM by Alarcia Ferrer Arquitectos
A gullwing door opens to The Sturgis's "obsession space"—a room that can be configured to house whatever the owner can't live without, whether that's a wine collection, mountain bike or motorcycle.
Made of 100-percent recyclable materials and equipped with smart home technology, this prefab known as SysHaus is a new model by a Brazilian construction and engineering start-up.
The architects reused and enlarged the steel frame and ground slab to preserve the shed’s original form while cladding the structure in new materials sympathetic to the rural vernacular.
A sprawling deck on the second story takes up more than half the footprint of the home.
Wood shutters can be closed to create a seamless exterior.
Rocks sourced from a local quarry create a supportive stone wall that cuts into the sloped terrain.
Bricks were assembled in a pattern to allow ventilation on the second story.
ODDO Architects designed a contemporary home for a family of four on a narrow, 4 meter by 16 meter plot of land in the dense city of Hanoi, Vietnam.
The building is clad in horizontal shot-blasted larch boards and vertically oriented galvanized steel fins. The cladding varies in height and width to create a patterned facade.
Walls of glass run up the east and west sides of the house, blurring the boundary between indoors and out.
The sedum green roof by Skygarden helps to manage stormwater.

One of the main goals of the construction was to do as little harm as possible to the existing environment, which includes waterways that salmon depend upon. Herrin and his team created a garden roof that covers the full extent of the home to meet this objective. “This helps control storm water runoff and also replaces lost insect habitat—insects being a critical food source for juvenile salmon,” he says.
“There had been two or three primitive cabins on the property in the past, which resulted in a clearing that we utilized for the site,” Joseph Herrin says. “This allowed us to avoid any further tree removal for construction, and provided an opportunity to begin to restore that portion of the property with native landscaping.”
Project Name: Dawnsknoll
Together with a personal Hanse Haus specialist, pre-configured house designs can be adapted simply and easily in order to suit all tastes and specifications.
A 100-foot-long glass wall opens the view up to views of the bay.
The home's shell of timber and corten steel will develop a natural patina over time.
"Because the clients expressed a lifelong interest in Richard Serra and Andy Goldsworthy, the unfolding sequence with which one encounters these modern artists’ installations inspired our strategy for approaching the residence," notes the firm. "Approaching guests follow a meandering stone wall through the woods and meadow of the site, eventually leading to a crisp line of Corten steel piercing the meadow; moving toward that image ultimately reveals the main residence, and conveys the visitor to its threshold."
The home is located far from the road on the northwest corner of the property and oriented toward views of the water.

Located in the Hampton Bays, the Peconic House is sandwiched between an old-growth forest and the waterfront.
Dawnsknoll’s exterior sidings are cement panels and Resysta wood. The house’s front gate and garage are made from recycled wood.

The sleeping quarters take advantage of their location at the end of the wings.  They are private spaces with unobstructed views.
Approached from above, the home blends into the landscape thanks to an expansive green roof that's set on SOPREMA elastomeric waterproofing membrane. In winter, the house is disguised under a blanket of snow.
