From Inhabitat: HOBBIT HOUSES IN SWITZERLAND! Looks quite vernacular and are sustainable at the same time. Pretty wicked! By Vetsch Architektur.
Lima Residence by Abramson Teiger Architects
Completely loving this sleek interior design. Great daylighting, use of white and high ceilings to convey that spacious feel…
Exotic Fish House. I cannot believe this is in SINGAPORE. Very tropical and modern look to it. A little extravagant and out-of-place if you ask me (what with the massive HDB blocks all around the island), but nonetheless absolutely stunning. Love the green roof on top. I’d like to live there. Lucky blokes whoever they are.
Casa Torcida - a beautiful modern house by studio SPG Architects is located in wild rain-forest on the Osa peninsula in Costa Rica.
Beautiful! Looks like a total resort!
Oliver Wainwright: DipArc
Royal College of Art
This project develops a vision for Mayfair, the area with the highest density of diplomatic missions anywhere in the world. Current trends in London’s development, such as the proliferation of Business Improvement Districts, and the rise of terrorism-driven fortress urbanism, are analysed and transformed into a new urbanism. Grosvenor Square becomes the site for an extraordinary flagship project - monumental and terrifying. Wainwright’s part of the exhibition was fitted out with a Persian rug, wall mounted flags and a timber vitrine containing BD, Cabe Reports and the Economist, all reporting on different aspects of his project. He operates with a sober sharpness, precision and efficiency, which is uncanny for a student. Judith Losing
Always nice to see other students’ works.

“The FirstLight house channels the essence of the iconic “Kiwi bach” – a focus on recreation, socialisation, and outdoor living. As primarily a summer destination, life at the bach takes place as much outside, on large decks and patios, as it does inside. Our house brings these ideals of bach life into a contemporary setting, providing a permanent residence where recreation and social activities are united with environmentally sound technologies.” (via: Firstlighthouse)
